GMAT score 760. . .quant 49, verbal 47
Princeton Review Scores in order 740, 730, 730
PowerPrep Scores 760 (quant 49, verbal 45) 750 (quant 50, verbal 42)
Kaplan Scores 630 670 (quant 50, verbal 37) 750
I cannot find nor remember the breakdown for the scores where no breakdown is listed.
I used some but not all of the techniques recommended by the study guides. Here is an executive summary. 1. For instance, while I did take notes on the reading passages I did not skim the passages-I read them thoroughly because I figured I had enough time. 2. I found Barron's to be useless except for some of the math tips it provides. 3. If you are doing poorly on Kaplan do not despair. As my scores show, it took me two tests to get used to the Kaplan tests. 4. Practice helps many people but did not really help me. So some of you might better spend your time enjoying a movie than preparing for the exam. With that said, it feels good to know that you gave it your all.
The GMAT felt much tougher than any practice test I took. I think the experimental questions or the stress may cause that feeling. Good luck to everyone. . .if I have more time I will post a more thorough description of important points.
Good luck to everyone

Hi Max: I was impressed to see your scores. I'm planning to give GMAT for the second time in Julyand reach somewhere near 700. My first attempt gave me 550 Q44 V22. Give me some tips specially on how to understand the RC and also how to max the SC and I feel I can do fairly well in CR but incase u have some specific tips on that I'll surely welcome that. I know I can improve on Quant. but I'm bad in Inequalities, any specific resources for improving on inequalities?
Bye and looking for your feedback.

not to discourage you, but that message was posted on Dec 24 (you can see that at the top) so I am afraid MAX is not coming back :cry:


Your ambitions for 700+ are very encouraging though.

How to improve SC, RC and Inequalities? [#permalink] New post 05 Jun 2003, 17:39
Thanks BB for a prompt consideration of my query.
I still need more inputs from you on SC-The main problem i find is in identifying the errors of redundancy.

In RC i fail to retain anything after reading carefully and I fail to look for a correct answer even after spending lot of time, i feel my answers are right just 'coz of a fluke and not for any strengths I've, I read newspapers daily and browse on the internet for my subject, but still I'm not good in retaining or comprehending. I'm simply bad in it besides the fact that I've studied in English medium throughout and I'm speaking english for last 15 years. I've been bad in asking questions throuhgout, so i fail to ask questions myself to cpmprehend better.

I get scared on seeing an inequality DS question and I do it wrong most of the time. I simply cant see the logic in it, besides knowing the fundamentals well. I got a very long wordy work problem in my actual GMAT which I could not answer after trying for 7 minutes, can u help me in practicing more of those kindda problems?

I know i've asked for lots but I guess thats why we are here :?:

Redundancy? Do you mean like sufficient enough? or liquid water?
Can you give an example please or confirm?

SC- Redundant [#permalink] New post 06 Jun 2003, 10:52
usage if "extremly" in "extremly terrified" is not required. so extremly is redundant word and should be eliminated. So sometimes its not clear what to look for in a sentence whether to look for verb-tense- modfifier or a redundant word. is there any list of redundant words so that we r sure whether a word is redundant or not.
I hope this time I'm clear :?:
