worst Gmat score [#permalink] New post 15 Nov 2009, 22:52
i had Gmat test in the last few days and it was really really bad. the total score 310. but i don't want to give up and i want to try for a good score and a good MBA programme. i just don't know how i can improve my skills. i have graduated 4 years ago and forgot the basic math issues to some extent so in quantitive, only 19 scaled score.
also i don't have any idea of verbal section and only 13 scaled score. for the writing section, i always need twice the time to answer thewhole questions and write a complete essay and i'm sure i wouldn't get a good mark of this section. actually i have a big problem with time managing at the test. i know it is somehow worst problems and too hard to solve them, however i wish for a good score.
in last 4 days i was disappointed and now i have a bad feeling of myself, i want to manage it and attain my dreams. i would appreciate any advise or help to solve this problem and reach to a good score.

thanks for your respond.
i took the test in 11th Nov. and the result was Qua. scales score 19, Ver. scaled score 13, total 310.
now i want to take it again.
i just used "McGraw Hill's GMAT 2008 Edition". it was not enough for me and i had many problem b4 the test.
actually i can't remember most of the math issues which are requiered in GMAT test. maybe it's better to start with highschool math books!???
also i'm not native english speaker and i know that i have grammer problems specialy when i want to correct a sentence.
time managing is a very big problem for me, always time is finished but questions or essays are not finished. please................please make me some advise to solve thease.

Surely you can increase your score by another 300 at least if you put your effort systematically.

Good luck!

GET Manhattan GMAT books.
It is worth its price. Buying that book, you can revise every single concept on Math you need to know for GMAT test.
Then Start doing OG tests,,, they really help to prepare you for the test

Thanks to all for your good advises. I'm really impressed by your consideration.
I go through the link BB posted, it gives me a clear idea of how to approach my GMAT test and now I just should start it. Also the books for math should be helpful, I will try them.
I try to write and speak accurately, but I need to study more and more. I know that there are lots of mistakes in my English,
i want to thank BB for the post concerning the reading comprehension problem. I have exactly the same problem and that's why it takes a long time to read a passage. It would be a good way to improve my reading and verbal skills.

Hi,

so as I already said in my previous reply, I got 330 in my 1st (May) and 410 in the second attempt (Oct).

I suggest that you study by yourself for one month and then do a prep test, if you see a good improvement, so continue following your plan. If you don't, take a Manhattan online course.
Don't do my mistake and continue studying with no clear plan and guidance.

Let me know if you have any questions...
