Want to keep it crisp and simple.
Took GMAT exam on 27th march and Scored 660 (Q48 , V33)
Materials used for preparation.KAPLAN
, GMATCLUB TESTS
, GMATCLUB FORUM
able to grasp required content from KAPLAN
. but this is not sufficient for GMAT exam.
GMATCLUB is the one which took my quant score from 33 to a consistent 48-49. Once you are done with going thru study material from any of your favourite book. I highly recommend to go thru GMATClub tests
to get more aquainted to the strategies and timing you need to apply in the exam.
For Verbal, followed KAPLAN
, MGMAT and GMATPILL
took my score from 22 range to a consistent 33 range.GMATPILL
is the one which took my verbal score to 33 range. Hightly recommend it.
AWA.. chineseburned, chineseburned, chineseburned and then essays compilation available in GMATCLUB. this is all you need.
WHAT EVER STUDY MATERIAL YOU USE.. ONLY PLACE THAT WILL MAKE HUGH IMPACT ON YOUR SCORES IS ACTIVELY PARTICIPATING IN THE FORUMS. THOUGH I DID NOT ACTIVELY PARTICIPATE IN GMATCLUB FORUM. THESE ARE MY LESSONS LEARNED DURING PREPARATION FOR GMAT. YOU WILL GET LOT OF STRATEGIES AND TIPS THAT YOU WILL NEED IN THE EXAM..
Above all, you need PRACTICE.. PRACTICE... PRACTICE... PRACTICE..
One suggestion would be not to run thru the OG questions in the beginning of your GMAT study.. use those to from last 2-3 weeks before your exam.. definitely after taking the free gmatprep tests
for non-native english speakers.. you need to practice reading actively this is where i am trying to work on.. though i am not taking the gmat again. but I felt doing this will reward me in the future..
any suggestions on forum like TOFELCLUB.. SIMILAR TO GMATCLUB????
