Yiepieeeeeeee...730!!!!!!!!!!.............. [#permalink] New post 30 Dec 2005, 05:12
.....i am finally DONE ! 730 (q50,v38) !

i am so happy...without GMAT-Club, it would never happened ! i owe my score to GMAT-Club and to all its members.

thanx gmatjang, matt, laxi, baner, freshina, antmavel, bhai, himalaya, bb, gsr, nakib, paul, praetorian, honghu !!!!!

when i can manage it, ALL of u can !

about me:

- 28 years old
- degree in economics
- self-employed; a new economy company
- 5 years work experience
- several awards for new economy projects; i.e. online mtv award

my preparation:

i started 1 year ago with my preparation. since then i prepared irregular. in the last 2 months i prepared intensly.

at first i decided to prepare with a company. but it was worthless. i payed 250 euro for it. then i planned to prepare by myself. i bought kaplan, princeton, OG and several other books. but it was ineffective. i knew that i had to change my strategy. unfortunately, i never had much time to prepare because i had to manage my own company. after a pause of 3 months, i found this incredible website and i started to participate. in my attempt , i cancelled my score because i was too nervous. my big problem is my stamina. i knew all the techniques and my scores during the CAT´s were constantly between 680-750, but during the test i started to panic and wasnt able to manage the time. i was frustrated because i knew that i can do much better but was somehow not able to manage my stamina and my time problem. i nearly stopped my plans for my MBA but i told myself all the time that i can achieve it when my heart and my head can conceive it. i set a date for december 2005. in november 2005 i sold part of my company and resigned as managing director. i changed my strategy and concentrated only on verbal. moreover i stopped doing CAT´s because some of them are far away from the real test. the best part of my 3rd phase of preparation was my frequent participation in GMAT-Club and my attitude. i was relaxed and didnt spend too much time for my preparation. these 2 aspects changed everything. in my next attempt i scored 730. yes it is possible ! i can tell u guys and girls, when i can achieve it ALL of u can (matt :wink:). its all about your attitude during the test. dont panic. stay calm. be cool.

my test:

AWA: didnt spend too much of my resources on AWA. i prepared a template and wrote as much as i can bout the issue and the argument.

quant:

the problems were much easier than the problems that we solve here. only one problem about probability. many tricky ds-problems. only one geometry-problem. one mixture problem that we already solved here. i knew the answer. i finished the section after 1h14m. i knew that i scored above 45. i took the pause and ate a cookie.

verbal:

i was always very good at solving cr`s and i was always very bad at solving rc`s. thats why i read about 20 articles of the economist under time limits. that really helped me. i saw one cr-problem that we already solved in the forum. it was about jets and their waste. the rc`s were really tough but i managed them because of my intense prep with these articles. i finished the section after 1h14m59s.

conclusion:

it was easy because i stayed relaxed all the time and so it appeared as i am at home solving problems in the forum. i said to myself: its just a test, just a test, just a test. nothing special. no reason to panic. BUT u only have no reason to panic when u prepared very well. thats the first step.

what can i do for u ?

i have plenty of books, tests and notes. tell me what u need and i will afford it.

i attache my list of formulas !

my plans:

now i will prepare my application for 2006. i know its late but i hope i can achieve it. i like to apply for INSEAD, London Business School, SDA Bocconi and one school in USA, but i am not sure about the school.

what can u do for me ?

i hope that some of u who already participate in a MBA-program of my choice (mentioned above) can give me some advice. (paul, u are at LBS, are u ?) maybe someone can give me an advice for an US-business-school as well.

i want to be part of this incredible community forever...

chris

I cannot be more happy for you Christoph. You're improvement was terrific and your determination will help you all throughout your life. Keep the same attitude and you should do well in your application essays. I suggest you to read the "ms finance"(especially this one) and "mba ambassadors" forums with the posts pertaining to LBS as I have already answered many of the FAQs. Once again, BRAVO! :woohoo

PS whichever school you get into, I will ask you to be ambassador of it. Please keep in touch with the community and thank you for you incredible involvement and contribution.
