I recently gave the paper-based test and am still waiting for my results (the suspense is killing!!!) But I'm quite sure I did not do too well. The quantitative section was great and I think I aced it (must have got a couple wrong if at all). But timing was a huge problem with the verbal sections. I did not manage to get through all the questions for SC and CR and even the RC's were lonnnnnnnnnnnnng! I'm expecting a score between 650-690.
But I really want to make it to the 750+ arena (I'll do anything to get there!) I'm not too sure how to go about preparing for my second attempt though. I am planning to give the CAT in the first week of Jan 2006.
So far I have looked at the OG (10th edition), Kaplan
, Kaplan verbal workbook
(this was my bible pretty much). I have managed to get some CDs with practice tests and will be doing them in the next month and a half. I think I did not do enough actual timed practice tests before sitting the real test and hence timing was a problem. I have started looking at the questions in this forum and find them to be a fantastic resource (wish I knew about this forum before I sat the test, would have never given the paper based one!)
What am I missing?
I would really appreciate if someone could suggest a study plan for a period of 1.5 months. Also could you pls tell me roughly the amount of time I should be spending on a SC, CR ques and an RC passage.
Thanks a million and sorry for the long post.
Help me crack the GMAT .. !!
