Retaking the test on my birthday! [#permalink] New post 09 Sep 2008, 11:16
Took the GMAT back in June. I racked up a 680 - 42v (95%), 39q (57%), 6 writing. Not bad, but nothing to really write home about either, especially considering the schools I'm hoping for (UNC, Darden, Duke). And that quant score hurts. Then I took the GRE in August and racked up a 750 quant score, which might not be much for an Indian engineer, but for this white bread liberal arts major, was pretty encouraging.

So I think I can do better, and I registered for another GMAT - next week, on my 27th birthday.

Honestly, I'll be glad to have 'er done with. I take the test seriously, but B-school is not my end-all-and-be-all - I'm interested in studying social enterprises and non-profit management, so impressing the consulting and IB guys isn't relevant for me.

Question for y'all who are better at this than I am - data sufficiency kicks my ass. So do the questions that ask you to interpret a graph or chart, which should be perfectly simple, but I somehow keep getting tripped up on them. Beyond "be more careful, dumbass," does anyone have any advice?

Thanks a lot!

Go through OG-10 and OG-11 diligently. And if you have time then you can go for GMATclub challenges. The tests have really good questions on DS types.
Good luck
