Fantastic score, gauraviitm! Make sure to add your name to this list: 99-ile-clubbers-add-your-name-to-the-list-77041.html

Could you elaborate on your GMAT preparation? I'm sure that many people are very curious.

Thanks again! :)

I'd love to hear your story.

Regards.

Sure, I will give the detailed experience after some time as right now busy with app process.

In brief I mugged hard for around 2 months. Materials used are OG12, Verbal Review , MGMAT SC, 1000 SC ,RC and CR and SC 700-800 club questions and in office I just used to look at 700 tagged questions in GMAT Club and Manhattan forums.

Test taken after preparation :
OLD GMAT PREP 1 720
OLD GMAT PREP 2 720
NEW GMAT PREP 1 750
NEW GMAT PREP 2 750
MGMAT 1 (Free one) 730
KAPLAN 1 610
KAPLAN 2 630
KAPLAN 3 660
KAPLAN 4 660
Powerprep 1 720
Powerprep 2 750
I have done all these but I will still say that any one preparing for GMAT doesn't require to solve 1000 series as the quality is not that great and it can shake your fundaes also. Also avoid writing Kaplan tests as they don't match actual GMAT test. Believe in GMAT Prep and your score will be in +-30 range of those scores. Whenever write any mock please write with essay sections also as then only you will be prepared for that 4 hour journey. Also I retook each GMAT prep test for around 4-5 times and every time 9-10 new questions were there and of harder level.

Best of luck to everyone preparing for GMAT. May you guys ROCK! :)

Just to clarify to the non-Indians here, mugged = memorization of concepts and hard practice. Not the "mugged" we are used to. Just so the message doesn't get lost in translation :D

congratulations gaurav,

There is no way you would you have scored less than 700 on the real test. Most of your practice scores were above 700, so you were already on your way to beating the GMAT.

Any tips for the verbal section? What are some things to keep in mind for before going for the verbal section?

Only thing I can say about verbal section is never ever feel that this can't be the answer as it looks very easy.
Most of the times easy answers you leave will be the correct ones.
So keep that in mind.

that's most excellent, congratz.

interesting observation:
my coworker got a 740 with 50/41
you got a 760 with 49/42... that just shows how weird GMAT calculates the total score!! I'm still puzzled!!

yeah even i am puzzled with that...i have seen one guy getting 49 and 42 last year and still he got 740 as total score.
But one of my friend gave gmat in august only and he scored 49 and 40 and got 740....
Strange but true...
