Shock and Sadness...530 [#permalink] New post 17 Sep 2007, 15:38
Not sure how the hell that happened today... but I want to cry.
530 Q29 V34
I will try again, but not sure on how to go about re-study. I want the highest score possible, but would be delighted to have a 670. Any kind advice?

:( mindy

don't get too down on yourself. I wrote twice and my first showing wasn't up to my expectations. I wrote one year later and achieved a score that I was more than happy with :)

depending on when you plan to applying, it's highly recommended to step back from the books for a bit before you get back to studying. if you are planning on writing soon, take atleast 1 week off and get the rest of your life back in perspective and try your best to leave your GMAT score behind.

the best part about the gmat is that it's one of the few parts of our application that we can continue to improve (unlike our gpa's and past experience). so use that as motivation to get your target score and don't settle for less! good luck!

This is what my friend who went from a 510-670 in 31 days:
ok here are the steps:

1- get ritilan from your doctor
2- get the exact dry erase board you will use in the test and the markers
3- go to manhattan gmat .com and use their stop watch. Give yourself 10 minutes and do 5 questions from the official guide. If you get the question wrong go back in 3 days and do it again. Even if it was a careless mistake. Do every question in the 11th edition and quant, maybe verbal too.
4- If there is a category of questions you are particularly weak in go to the manhattan gmat book for that category and understand why you are getting them wrong.
5- review each question you got wrong and understand.
6- lock yourself away for the next 30 days, do not go out, do not talk to people and dedicate your life to getting the score you want so you can get into the school you want so you can have the life you want. It is not fun but there really isn't any other way.

What MediaMindy said is so sad but true. I better score high enough to get into somebodys school, because this process will cause you to lose friends, or make people think you are just avoiding them. I have to constantly remind my friends and family that they have to trust that I am doing something that will make me happy in the end, and hopefully everyone else in my circle will be proud of me :) And I have been locked away for about 3 months now! Hopefully after the test I can get back to a normal life.
