Taking GMAT soon..Any last minute advice guys....? [#permalink] New post 23 Aug 2007, 23:37
Well i will be retaking my GMAT soon. Got a 670 in the first try which was way below my performance in practice tests. I got a 720,740 in GMAT PREP before my first try. So was definitely disappointed with the score.

This time i am focussing on verbal section more as i got way below my averages.

Got 750 and 710 in Princeton tests and 750 in Power Prep(some repeat Qs) this time. Do i have hope for the elusive 700+. I certainly hope so.

First of all congrats on your practice scores. I would say the most important thing is to go into the test with a calm confident state of mind. When I took the test I was so nervous that I spent 6 minutes on the first math question. My brain just wouldn't start, and the question was a simple average Q. Take the break between the essays and math, clear your head do something to calm yourself and then jump into quant. G'luck on the test, and I look forward to your debrief.

Good luck! I feel the GMAT tests your mental and physical condition more than anything.... pretty much anyone who knows the material can do well on the test, but to me it's a matter of concentrating and being on your A-game for the 4 hour duration. Bring lots of food and drinks! I had a Gatorade, a bottle of water, an apple, 2 bananas, an orange, an energy bar, AND a chocolate bar in my 2 breaks! :lol: (OK it's overkill but I still felt energetic when I left the test centre so I believe the food served their purpose)

For verbal, I'd recommend spending a little bit more time on the first question on RCs... I found that actually knowing the content (as opposed to skimming) really boosted my RC score....
