I gave GMAT for first time in OCT 2010. I attempted GMAT second time this April 28th 2011. I missed the bus again. I had prepared for around 2 months for my 2nd attempt. I am writing this post after a month, since I wanted to take my mind off the GMAT after failing twice. I had prepared well during both my attempts. I am unsure what is going wrong during the real exam. I have been doing pretty decent during my mock tests.
Material that I covered -
OG - 10, 12
Verbal Review - 2nd edition
Quantitative Review - 2nd Edition
CR - CR Bible - made short notes of all the question types, solved and reviewed all the problems from OG 10
SC - MGMAT, aristole - made short notes using both the books, solved and reviewed all the problems from OG12
RC - RCs from OG10
and few from OG12
- used strategy to make short notes during exam. Strategy was working well during mock tests.
Quant - Used MGMAT books
, solved all the problems from OG12
Mock test scores -
MGMAT 1 - 660 ( Q-43, V-37) - Used extra 10 minutes for verbal
MGMAT 2 - 700 ( Q-47, V-39) - used extra 5 minutes for each section
MGMAT 3 - 660 ( Q-43, V-37) - used extra 5 minutes for each section
MGMAT 4 - 730 ( Q-49, V-40) - used extra 5 minutes for each section
MGMAT 5 - 710 ( Q-49, V-37) - used extra 5 minutes for Quant
MGMAT 6 - 660 (Q - 49, V-32) - finished on time
GMAT Prep 1 - 700
GMAT Prep 2 - 650 ( few questions repeated)
Something should be going wrong. I scored lower than any of my practice test scores. Experts, please suggest me what can I do to clear the GMAT hurdle. My target schools are CBS, NYU, Wharton, and ISB. But these schools, now just look like a dream. Anything helpful will be appreciated. I am planning to give one more try, but this time I want to be sure what I am doing.
If any of you can please suggest any online course that might be helpful. How is GMATPill
