Nice debrief! It's always good to read the comeback stories as they have a lot of inspiration. I agree 100% on what you said about Ron's videos.

Great debrief! I especially liked the part about the girl. You said that the "Thursdays with Ron" videos were useful. Are there any specific videos which were good? I took up my GMAT 2 weeks back and scored 620, I found your post very inspiring! Keep up the good work

Very nice debrief. You should first thank your GIRL who made you realize to take responsibility of the failure and then the lovely soul who could not speak but still taught you one of the most important things in life.

The lesson taught by that girl is commendable and I strongly believe in it , though sometimes being a mango man can not control the senses. But trying to live life fully is the mantra for all solutions.

I wish you good luck for your TOEFL and Applications.

Hi Abhij,

Its been a long time since i did that book (more than an year )
That time I found it useful: the traps whcih they give (if i remember correctly) were good to know.

Hi gurpreetsingh

yes i did thank the GIRL (rather my girl) who made me realize the pain of a failure. Although i did not get a chance to thank the lovely soul. My blessing will always be there with her though

Am joining XLRI GMP program this year. (did not apply outside and did not get through ISB )
How is it going with you? Did you apply anywhere?

Congrats,
Are the questions discussed in Thursdays with RON from GMAT PREP tests or GMAT PREP pack?
If they are from the GMAT PREP test then what is the good time to watch the videos.

Hi
Am not sure about the source of problems. I will say do the theory from the book which you are referring and do some questions and then watch the videos to refine or strengthen your knowledge.

Good job buddy!

Congratulations.

Very curious to know if that "girl" of your debrief is still around and if she is, kudos to that too! :)
