Hi everyone, I am new to this forum and I seriously need some help from you guys.
I am very frustrated that I scored 440 on my first GMAT test last week.
32 on Quant and 18 on Verbal which is really bad.
I spent about a month to study for the test and decided to give it a shot to see where I stand.
I did most problems in the OG (I answered most questions correctly but I did not time them)and took one timed CAT test from MGMAT with results of 520.
I was very nervous the night before the test and I could not sleep at all. And in the test, I was actually running out of time for both Quant and Verbal. Especially for the Verbal part, I had 7 more questions when I had only 7 mins left on the test. Wonder if anyone could share some time-management strategy and tips on improving both parts?
1) I am planning to retake the test in about 8 weeks. Is there enough time?
2) Is it possible for me to score higher?
3) How much time should I spend on studying the materials? (I am planning to study at least 6 hours a day, will it be too much?)
4) What material is the best?
I wish I found this forum earlier and could have asked all these questions. The result of my first test was really frustrating.
Any help is much appreciated.
Thank you botirvoy
I am an international student whose native language is NOT english.
Graduated with an undergrad degree in Accounting in the US.
Currently preparing for both GMAT and CPA. Have a very hard time on verbal
I need to score 650 or higher in order to get into the program I want.
If I have to speed it up and finish everything in one month, will it be possible? how should I do it if it's possible?
