Should I retake the GMAT ? [#permalink] New post 12 Mar 2005, 11:06
Hi Guys,

I am new to this forum although familiar with GMAT as I have taken it last month. My GMAT was a flop :( as I scored 540 much below expected. In maths I scored 70 percentile whereas my verbal was pretty low 25 percentile. I prepared for about a month and a half and all of it was self study (no courses). I primarily used Kaplan and 800 score. I know that I could do much better in Verbal and pacing with time in the verbal section is my main weakness that I need to overcome. Please suggest if I should give a second attempt and what courses would you recommend for improving my verbal score. I am aiming at atleast 650 :? in the second attempt.

Cheers,
Paddy.

Did you study OG when you prepared for the test? If you haven't done it, especially the verbal part, I say you definitely have room for large improvments.

I did not use OG for my preperations at all, neither for quantitative nor for verbal. I suppose I can get it ordered from the mba.com website. Many Thanks for your suggestion.

Did you use the error log? It could be REALLY helpful for you

i agree with zem. the error log is the best tool for success. I mark any problem I get worng, was unsure of or slow on and redo them at least once per week. it really cements the concept in your mind bc when you go back the first few times you will most likely make the same error you had in the past.

I should have used the error log. That way I could have kept track of my errors. I did hear about it from one of my colleagues at work but never knew where can I find one. Thanks for all your help.
