Hi all,

I have undergone GMAT twice and scored 550 and 630. I am planning to undergo GMAT one more time, in a matter of 5 weeks, and boost my score with another 60-80 points.

My weakness are low score in verbal (31) and DS.

Thank you,
Hemant

BOOKMARKED
Well... Well.. Well...

Here I am, back to where it all started.

BTW I regret not to updates my status since very long. Apparently, I got through GLIM Chennai and completed by Exec MBA in 2013 :D

Apparently, I visited GMATClub after 2+ years, everything looks as is :D I tried my hands on couple of questions in Quants and found myself, still, addicted

Planning to stay connected forever...

GMATClub Rocks !!!

Hey,

With a heart full of emotions I started to point out my mistakes and to prepare for GMAT once again. Since past 1.5 week, I have been eating QUANT section and spending more time on GMATCLUB Though my QUANT is about 47, I wanted to make it rock soild. With this aim, I purchased TGM and, no surprise, it lives upto its mark. I will recommend this book to everyone.

I read someone's post stating "GMAT is an addiction", I agree it truely is In 1.5 week I completed TGM, with all exercises, and OG 12 QUANT questions. This showcase my passion to add another name in 700+ list. With QUANT under my belt, I gave GMAT Prep 1 (I have undegone it multiple time) and scored 750 I am happy to see my QUANT score reaching 50 (First time ever since I fallen in love with the beast).

I will start off with VERBAL to maintain my target score and achieve it once and for ever.

Will keep everyone posted about my progress !!!

Thank you...

Hello folks,

I gave GMAT Prep 2 today and scored pleasing 710 (Q50 V36). I was quite satisfied to score Q50 twice in a row. Since GMAT Prep 1, I wasn't able to concentrate on my studies, but I had spent a lot of time on GMATCLUB. I am filled with enthu and motivated to please my lover (GMAT)

BTW I received my official score card, for last exam, and scored 5 in AWA.

All thanks to GMATCLUB and its members !!

I would start calling Indian's as native Quat Gurus Still for Quat, I will strongly recommend Total GMAT Math - By Jeff Sackmann.

For verbal Currently I am reviewing
1. SC - Grail & MGMAT SC (Deadly combination)
2. CR - Power score

Past week was not so good, for my prep, due to week of festival in India Eventhough I spend a lot of time on GMATClub and tried to focus on SC section.

I planned to undergo MGMAT 1 today, but left QUANT section half done. Took 30 mins break and recollected my enthu and tried to gain my focus. I started with verbal and secured 39

I am happy to see my verbal score growing and hope it will remain as is. Overall score in MGMAT1 - 560 Q28 V39

Hi Mindreko,

TGM is amazing book and you can read its reviews on forum. Few bullets to mention
- Teaches you good tips and tricks to solve questions
- Exercises are quite different than concepts explained in chapters
- Amazed to see why resolution section has been marked as a chapter

All in all, TGM is good book and a must buy

Hi,

You have a great background and may attract selectors

- For SC MGMAT and GRAIL SC are best.
- For CR Powerscore CR is preffered choice.
- For RC you should spend lot of time reading.

There are many startegies described by BB and you could use any.

Hello guys,

I got busy with application process and dint get time to update my status I applied to ISB and Great Lakes Chennai. I was not short listed by ISB and got dinged by Great Lakes after GD/PI...

Any ways, I guess my road to success is under construction and I have to meet my best friend, GMAT, once again.

So here I am all set to prepare for my next engagement
