Hello All,

I score 580(Q47, V23) in my first attempt on 20th March.

Now after taking long break of 3 - 4 moths I started again in the month of September. I decided to take it on Nov 1st week but has been dalying since I took my first Mock and scored 640 in GMAT prep I

I decided to book the test the day I touch 700 on Gmat prep. Last week I gave 3 tests with below scores.

1. GMAT Prep I - 700 (Q49, V37)
2. GMAT prep II - 690 (Q48, V37)
3. Veritas free test - 700(Q48 V38)

But honestly I am still not Convinced with my scores because of two reasons

Firstly I aim for 700 + but I am not sure will be able to improve my score more with my full time job (Already taken 3 weeks off cos of GMAT)
Second I saw few repeats in the GMAT prep as I gave the same mocks in March (On +ve side I did not rem the correct answers as I gave the Mock 6 months back)

I plan to book it on coming Saturday and I have checked the favorable slots are available.

I have purchased the exam pack 1 from mba.com and plan to give those mocks today and tomorrow.
If I score more +- 20 near 700 Shall I go ahead and book the Exam or not ???

Please advise seeing my target score of 700 +

Thanks in advance
Abhinav

Looks like you are in generally good shape. I would not worry about seeing questions you have seen before. The fact that you didn't get those wrong is a good thing.

Sure - go ahead and test yourself a bit more to give yourself extra confidence. Make sure you look through your mistakes to see if there are any glaring patterns that point out what you can work on.

Even if you get 780 is every practice test you take, there is no "guarantee" that you will score 750+ in GMAT because there are some other factors in play when you face the actual test. There is pressure; there is anxiety - they may be good or bad for you. Some people perform very well under pressure, some not-so-well. Take the mba.com mocks and if you see scores around your target score, you should go ahead and take the test. Don't wait to be 100% sure because that rarely happens. If you are satisfied with your performance on the mocks, you should go ahead.

As mentioned I gave last two remaining tests I scored following scores

GMAT Prep III - 640 (Q49 V28)

GMAT PREP IV - 690 (Q49 V35)

First of these tests were given in breaks and 2nd which I gave today was without a single minute break.
SO I have scored 690 thrice i he GMAT mocks and whole of my score depends on Verbal now as I am continuously scoring 49 in Q (Hopefully in Real GMAT as well)

And I have already booked the test so I can only pray for one my best days in GMAT...

Any advice on what to do one day before REAL GMAT ?

Regards,
Abhinav
