Scored 700 Q:50(95%), V:34(71%) [#permalink] New post 27 Nov 2006, 16:58
I am happy to report that I have scored a 700 on my second attempt (My first was a 680 - Q45, V38).

While I am pleased with the overall result I am really bummed about my verbal score. I have never gotten a 34 on any practice test (GMAT prep). Anyways, I am done with the GMAT and am not planning to take it again.

Personally, I think the GMAT score and your performance depends a lot on what questions are thrown at you and from which bin. If I combine my best splits (Q50 and V38) I get a 720-730 and with my worse combination (Q 45, V 34 ) close to a 650-660.

I think that is a huge margin of error, but I will not complain as my second score was indeed higher than my first. :)

I want to thank each and every one of you at the GMAT club who has made taking the GMAT a fun experience ! I will keep hanging around and will keep people updated with my application experience.

A 20 point increase is really great.

But i can understand the feeling of getting a low verbal than earlier.

Keep ur chin up and get ready for the application/essays part.

Thank you guys for your support and wishes!

My prep for my second attempt was very minimal. I spent more time on Quant i.e. purchased the separate official GMAT Quantitative guide and solved all the problems from it. I gave the GMAT prep quite a few times so that during the test day giving the test would feel very routine.

I took about 10 GMATclub challenges and consistently scored in the 90% or higher for the last 5 that I took before the actual test.

For the test, the best advice I can give is that you must pace yourself. Do not get stuck or bogged down by one bad question - it will not make or break your score!

For the verbal part I would just concentrate on the Official GMAT guide(s) as they are really indicative of the actual test. The AWA sections were a breeze and I would not worry about them at all !
