Day-23
It was a super busy day(Friday the 13th):( ! After finishing my work I reached home at around 8:30 P.M. I was completely out of steam.But to be on track & to write a test during weekend I had to finish revision of Combination,permutation & probability.I started the revision at around 9:30 (w/ R.S. Agrawal) & finished it around 12:30!
The good thing w/ this book (R.S. Agrawal) is it tests your fundamentals by using different sort of questions.To quickly freshen up your fundamentals this book is good.

i think GMAT test makers have no idea of Indian pre-engineering entrance grills :). otherwise they wont call probability and permutation combination questions they test as difficult ,

Day-25
Finished the papertest# 48.Quant was piece of cake.Once again I got stumped by CR (with 70% accuracy).Total score came out to be 690.I think I need to increase mental alertness while writing test as I am loosing only due to silly mistakes.

Adios!

Day-29
Gave MGMAT'S 3rd test today.
The score(690 q45v41) was confidence booster for sure.I could have easily crossed 700 if I would have avoided 2/3 silly mistakes.

I got 100% accuracy in CR,83% in RC & only 71% in SC.Performance in quant was not up to the mark(at least 3 points below my expectation).

Day 31 & 32
Got high fever severe cold for last two days.Almost slept through entire day.I am still feeling bit weak today.But it is just another road block.The D-day is not so far now (6th june-12 days).There isn't any space for nervousness for now.I have done enough of preparation to tame this test.

Just hold your head high & kill it!

Best of luck! I found that my scores fluctuated between 730 and 680 depending on how tired I was. Unfortunately, the only appointment I could get for my actual exam was 8:00am....and I ended up with a 710 which is about average for the scores I've been getting on the prep tests. Definitely try to get an appointment that suits your schedule!

D-day

The "Dhoni-dhamaka" did not work on the final day.
After the convincing performance on mock tests, I was pretty sure that I will score above 700 but the destiny wanted something else.

I scored 660 (q47v34) on GMAT!!

I will retrospect & come on conclusion about retake!Please chip in your valuable advices!!

Hey buddy

Thats ok don't be disheartened......things might not have been in your favor.....nothing else...otherwise you were preparing well....

take some rest....relax your mind....you are in form n touch with your studies.. take a date within like next 20-25 days n give the exam.

you deserve a better score...no way 660....
Best of Luck buddy
