These are nice pieces of information. I agree highly with visualizing test day success. If you can visualize it, believe it,. and work assiduously towards it, then it will come to pass. I also agree with the use of a scratch pad for the GMAT, which can help reduce some of the anxiety one can face on test taking day. Absolutely no revision in the testing center is also nice to note.
Thanks, you will be getting a kudos from me.

For someone who has not taken the test before...would you be able to provide a link to Amazon or something for what the dry-erase pad and pen would look like?

I have registered for GMAT in Sep. My current GMAT score is 550. My verbal is weak. Can you suggest me ways to improve my verbal score and other strategies to improve my overall score to 700+ in 3 months?

Thanks!

Absolutely. If you are new to the site I would start here: new-to-the-gmat-club-start-here-130870.html.

I would start by purchasing the correct materials, studying hard, and taking practice tests along the way. One of the best ways to stay on track is to create a study plan. See our post here: gmat-study-plan-start-your-gmat-journey-80727.html?fl=menu make sure to read the ultimate verbal study plan here: study-plan-for-verbal-gmat-98342.html also.

We've got EVERYTHING you need to know on the site, so stay active, and we look forward to seeing you around the forum.

Good luck!

Imagine those 1000s of people, blowing their test, and remember that you're a GMAT dragon slayer. You are going to slay that dragon, while all the others are getting burned by its fire. Every time you use one of these techniques, your leaving 1000s of other test takers in your dust!

I don't know about the rest of you, but those words got me all pumped up!!!!

hi,

I just took my first GMAT. Actually im very disappointed. I got a 520 and a 29 en Math and 32 on verbal.

I dont understand what happened to me. Y mi last prep test from de GMAC software i got 690, and I was feeling very confident because i can solve almost every math problem.

When the math section srtated i kind of blanked, the first 3 questions I knew how to solve them but could do it there, and this happened a lot. After many questions that I just could hit the right score I started to get desperate and tried to guess. I was not nervous, I actually thought that this was normal and that by the end of the test i would get a 600 or plus.

On the verbal part i actually think i got many of the SC right , but with the pressure of time y couldn't think in de CR and started guessing or just selecting the least extreme language or concussive question,

I need advise please, because im really disappointed and sad, and i don't want to give up the idea of an MBA in one top school.

It is right that we should do more and more practice and study before going to test. So every trader must prepare himself well to get good scores in test.

I am sure that students can score easily 50 points higher if they simply avoid the most common traps/mistakes and stay cool on test day. If they also prepared effectively for the GMAT chances are pretty high they will do fine!
