So I'm going back to the drawing board and going to go through the Foundations of GMAT Math book by MGMAT. I took an initial MGMAT CAT and got a horrific 460(Q27, V28). I took it here at work, so I rushed through the verbal section, or I was doing problems while someone was talking to me about an issue in the department. I really need to focus on quant, as I am certain that I will do fairly well on the verbal. I'm going to do the drill sets at the end of the 1st Chapter of the Foundations of GMAT Math guide this afternoon, and some more reading after I get home. Just a little update for those who are watching.

I understand your frustration. I would suggest retaking a CAT without distractions, maybe at home. I had a similar thing happen in one of my early prep tests and my score suffered big time. At this point in the game, you can't let your confidence get shaken by this sort of thing (I know, easier for me to say at this point but I remember!). You know that you know some of this stuff. Just take a breath, think positive thoughts (just think back on some crappy concepts you've now mastered that you used to scratch your head at), and retake a CAT. Good luck!

Sounds like we're in a similar position, I just did the MGMAT CAT1 as well, thought it was very difficult!

580, Q40, V31

Was dissapointed with Q given I'd been through all the MGMAT quant books. Found it really hard, ran out of time, had to guess last 5 questions.

You're almost there! I mean, your first CAT and you get a 580. I'm sure you can crack 700 if you focus on your weak areas. Good luck!

thanks! I don't think your in terrible shape if I'm not. My quant score was only slightly higher than yours, and I've been through all the mgmat books. You've only done number properties, I'm sure once u do the rest you'll start flying. That's why I think we are at a similar stage! Good luck!

I've heard the phrase that "sometimes, life gets in the way." I must say that this accurately describes what has been going on in my life since the New Year. Even though I haven't taken my GMAT yet, George Washington waived the GMAT for me due to my work experience/GPA, so I've applied there and am awaiting a decision. The thing is, that I still need to take the GMAT for 1) as a matter of principle, and 2) I need to submit my scores to the Navy for commissioning purposes. So I started back with Number Properties and finished up to the Advanced section. Some of the corresponding questions in the OG are still a little tough. Is that normal? I know that my math needs work, but I thought that these books were supposed to rectify that problem. I'm going to go through some of the areas of the book that I had trouble with tonight and start on the FDP book tomorrow.

On a side note: congrats to all of those who have taken the test recently who got a score they desired.

Hey everybody,

As you can see from my profile, I've been accepted to GWU. They waived the GMAT because of my work experience and GPA, but I still need to take the GMAT for the Navy. I only need a 520, but would like to get something higher than that. This week, I'll be working on the 3rd quant book in the MGMAT Series. Just giving you guys an update.

So I took the MGMAT CAT#3 today at work with the quant section untimed. I finished with a 590(Q38V34). I know that its not a great score, but I feel pretty good because I'm only halfway through the 3rd MGMAT book. I haven't studied any verbal to date, but I have seen my verbal scores drop. I also think that the MGMAT CR questions are a little sketchy. I need to score a 520 for the Navy to pay me to go to school full-time, otherwise, I'll be working while taking classes. For some reason, I'm still having tremendous difficulty with the quant section. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, or if anyone is in the DC area that has taken/preparing for the GMAT and is good in math and willing to take on an extremely inexperienced GMAT math Padawan, let me know. Thanks guys and girls!

I've got to get better at the quant portion of this test. After what seems like forever, I still haven't crossed Q40 in the MGMAT tests. I've taken all of them and am about to reset the tests.

Keep working!!! You have been improving a lot in Quant.

I wish I can do the same on my Verbal!

So I've got my test scheduled for Friday morning at 8am. I've been going through my error log and am going to take the GMAT Prep test tonight. Tomorrow, I'll review the AWA guide that I've heard about on this forum and look at a few problems from the OG. Wish me luck!

So I took the GMAT on the 22nd of July and received a 600 Q41/V32. I've already been accepted into George Washington's Online Healthcare MBA Program, but have been considering applying to their full-time program as well. Since I'm in the Washington, D.C. area, I'm thinking of applying to UMD and Georgetown. In order for me to better my chances at these schools, I need to re-take the GMAT.

I studied for the quant portion of the test so much that my verbal score went down by around 8-9 points. I'm going to try to bring my Q score up as I realize that I never quite grasped DS questions. During the test, I didn't seem to have a problem with the PS questions, but I felt like I was guessing on each DS question. There was also a lot of Geometry (the only Q book from MGMAT that I didn't read). I'm going to give myself about 1-2 months to prepare and then I'll take it again. After seeing what the real test was like, I feel that I can drastically improve on both areas.
