Urgent advice for second attempt Pls!! [#permalink] New post 17 Nov 2005, 01:42
Hi all

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 2004, Kaplan800, 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.

Eskay

Go thru' the threads in "Share your GMAT Experience" (if you haven't already done this). Many have posted their study plans and strategies.

Since you want to get 750+, you may want to zoom in on those that have achieved just that. However, doing what they did may not get you what they got. Furthermore, you may not be able to do what they did, due to the different lifestyle, environment, etc., etc.

Actually, based on your own analysis, you already know what you were missing.

All the best!

Hi tk

Thanks for that. I'm new to gmatclub and so am just trying to work my way around all the posts on this forum. I'll have a look at the "share your gmat experience" ones. Thanks

Where can I find the OA's for the questions posted on the various threads?

Thanks
Eskay
