guys,

i am going no where with the scores.. all my scores are ranging from 660 to 700. Just cannot improve the score..

I am wondering if I should give it again.. may be 660(Q:50,V:29) is what I am destined for ..

Even after practicing so much, my english is ranging from 33 to 36, and my math has actually dropped from 50 to 48 now!!!!!!!


arrghhhhh
What should I do?

Should I spend more time on essays now?

dont feel like taking a break now and doing essays because then I know I will loose the gmat touch...

here are my scores for more analysing:

Before first official GMAT Test

Princeton Test 1 20-Jan 660(M:49,V:33)
Princeton Test 2 29-Apr 700(M:51,V:36)
GMAT Prep 1 April 660(Q:46,V:36)
GMAT Prep 2 April 720(Q:50,V:38)
PowerPrep1 May 740(Q:47,V:44)
GMAT Prep 1(reinstall) May 720(Q:49,V:38)
Official GMAT 4-May 660(Q:50,V:29)


After studying Veritas Prep for 1.5 months and other materials:
Veritas Test1 22-Jun 640(Q:43,V:36)
Veritas Test2 13-Jul 650(Q:49,V:33)
800Score Test1 11-Jul 760(Q:48,V:44)
800Score Test2 14-Jul 660(Q:46,V:38)
Gmat Club Challenges --> Took 1,2 and 20. percentile is 95%

800Score Test 1 Verbal was too easy.. SC was a joke. a person like me getting all SC correct is bound to be a joke!
800Score Test 2 --> I screwed up CR's.. Otherwise I had a good chance.. And the QUANT was HORRENDOUS.. I mean so tough.. Anyone seen this?

Thanks a lot for advice!

Hey guys,
I've been prepping for the gmat for a bit now, really just got into gear with studying in the past month and a half, i was hoping to take the gmat in mid august this year but find everything a bit too daunting and freaky to start off with, do you guys have any tips on how I can keep myself from freaking out about the exam and just concentrate

Great weekend: Took 1 PR and 1 Kaplan. I was literally hitting and shouting at my screen in the Kaplan tests. Ouch.

Here's my report:
PR Test 1: 650
Math: 25 right. 12 wrong. 5 of the wrong were calculation mistakes because I got nervous and pressed for time
Verbal: 34 right. 7 wrong. Mostly RCs. I get these right on paper. I hate reading them online

Kaplan: hahaha I don't know whether to laugh or cry.
Test 1: 540.
Math: 23 right. 14 wrong. Again 4 were calculation mistakes because I got nervous for time. Last 3 were unseen clicks.
Verbal: 18 correct. 23 incorrect. God almighty what happened. Verbal is supposed to be strong for me. Most RCs wrong. Had to click through last 8 becuase of lack of time. I also lost it mid way (my first 12 were all right, then I started getting annoyed at Kaplan for their crazy wording.

Here's my question: How do I improve time management? Esp. on Math. I know the general answer = practice more, I just get so nervous after a while.

Approach for GMAT [#permalink] New post 09 Sep 2006, 18:17
Hi All,

I am new to this group. I have decided to go for GMAT. I am a postgraduate in engineering and want to persue MBA. Could anybody suggest me if I should go for Kaplan coaching classes in the beginning before I go for self study. Will it help me in designing the strategy. Any replies will be of great help. Thank you all in advance.

Guys - I am in for the study group. I am planning on taking the test in next 2-3 months. I am in Cincinnati,OH and just started my prep yesterday(09/09) with a goal to take the test no later than 12/09. I am also looking at the UC MBA prep class that is going to start in 2 weeks in cinci. Will keep you posted. So, what is the starting point? I dowloaded the MBA.com's prep tests and did the sample questions to get a feel. Just placed the order on Amazon.com for 'The official guide for GMAT review, 11th edition". My plan at this point is to complete the sample questions in the GMAT Prep by EOW and try to ramp up the time I spend to about 3 hours/day. How about you guys. Good luck everybody and let's GET IT DONE......
