what to do to get 700 plus [#permalink] New post 22 Jun 2013, 16:44
Hey guys, I did my graduation in the States.After unable to find a descent job there(cause of the economy). I came back to India and started prep for GRE. Gave the exam twice but did't get a good score. I got an intern ship in Bangalore in Deutsche Bank in November 2011, and decided to go with it to get some work ex. I joined a c oaching institue in Bangalore for GMAT, and started studying for it, i gave my first mock test in Jan 12 and got a score 440 :( So I used to study for it now and then but not realy seriously. In May last year I got a full time Job Offer with DB and had to relocate to Jaipur. So I decided to go with it. Still I used to study for GMAT
now and then in November i got serious as I thought i need to finish this and to get a decent MBA school. Joined another coaching institue and these were my mock scores MGMAT 1-580 MGMAt 2- 550 800scores- 580, GMAT PREP 1- 560 GMAT PREP2- 620 and the non CAT GMAT club exam- 700.(note they are not in order)

I have been studying and with no sleep for GMAT but I know deep down that I could't get a scpre beyond 650 on the real test and I need a 700+ for a good Bscool. I have been memorizing SC rules and stuff but I am still stuck in this limbo. Don't know what else to do??

Any suggestions?? thanks

Hi,
I understand your predicament. You seem to have hit a ceiling in terms of your score and preparations. :?
i assure you this is very normal. Its best to reconsider your preparation methods and tweak them a bit to get the best out of yourself. I suggest you go through the success stories of those stalwarts who have slayed the GMAT monster 8-) .(best-gmat-stories-period-98512.html?fl=menu).
If you gather your patience and go thru them i can guarantee you you will get cutting insights into the ways of getting into the 700+ club. From the prep point of view i implore you to determine your weaknesses and strengths in verbal and quants. Then it will be helpful for you to prepare.
Give kudos if this post helps you :-D
Best of luck

What are the books you are using for reference? What is your score split Quant/Verbal? You need to identify the problem areas and focus on them. Taking one course after another is not the answer. First figure out where you stand and where you want to go. Then figure out how you will reach there. And then go ahead and take steps that will help you reach your target score.
For more relevant advice, give details of your past and current preparation.
