Should i give my Gmat in 3 weeks [#permalink] New post 15 Apr 2012, 22:01
I gave my GMat last year with score of 590.
Q 48 V 22
My main problem was SC.
2 weeks back I gave the Prep with a score of 640 and significant improvement in SC.

Yesterday i gave Veritas test with 610 with lot of mistakes in CR and RC.
I am so confused. I never made mistakes in CR and RC.


I am aiming for a 700 score.
I want to give the test before the pattern change.
What should i do?

Hi nbhosale,

If you are not making mistakes in the CR and RC, it's a great thing for you. What you need is more practice for the SC. It's a very logical section and relatively easier to master compared to the other sections. Try this: select one of the 8 types of errors each time and practice some 25 to 30 sentences with similar errors. The good thing is, the GMAT questions types won't vary. Also, try the Manhattan GMAT SC book with the OG. I tried that. The results were great.

Regards,

Shouvik

Absolutely!

You seem to have a firm foundation and with 3 weeks of study, you can really hone in on the topics that you were having some inconsistency with. Furthermore, your options are simple:

1. study, and take the exam before the change.
2. don't study, and take the exam before the change.
3. study, and take the exam after the change.
4. don't study, and take the exam after the change.

I assume in our best interest we can eliminate options 2 and 4. With that being said, is the change something that's going to really bother us. If you're under some deadline or constraint, work hard right now and make the appropriate sacrifices. If you have to give up leisure time, do so (1 hour less of leisure time can really add up). If you have to give up sleep, you have justification (1 hour less of sleep a day can really add up). The GMAT and MBA admissions process test our ability to prepare, adapt, and perform. As future business leaders, this is a great first test for the rest of our lives. Good luck, though. I really do think you have a firm foundation and what we need to do is just hone in specifically on the areas that you're lagging behind in. Keep us updated!
