Topic: Screwed up in gmat prep after a 670 on my 5th MGMAT!
Sun Sep 26, 2010 11:58 pm
Hello people,
I have my exam in 6 days time on October 1st.My prep started a couple of months back and since then ive used the following books for study:
The official guide 11th ed
The official guide verbal and quant books( finished all the problems of both quant and verbal in the 11th edition as well as the verbal guide.The quant guide ive done only 100 or so of the 200 something thats there)
The manhattan Sentence correction,number properties and reading comprehension guides
The powerscore bible for critical reasoning(excellent is an understatement)
So far ive taken 6 tests:
Gmatprep 1 : 380 (without any preparation,to check where i stand,took it 2 months back)
MGMAT 1 : 600
MGMAT 2: 580
MGMAT 3: 630
MGMAT 4: 640 (q 43, v 34 )
MGMAT 5: 670 (q 43, v 38 )

I took MGMAT 1 TO MGMAT 4 every 8-9 days.
I took MGMAT 5 and gmatprep 1 with a two day gap in between
I must say i was really really disappointed to get a 640 today.Quant shot up but verbal came down by 8 points.really frustrating after putting in so many hours these last few days.I even practised an LSAT paper for improving my RC skills and CR skills.I was expecting a 720 something score today.BIG disappointment.I guess i have no option apart from just working on my mistakes . Plan on taking gmatprep2 on tuesday or wednesday.

Lets see what happens on d-day.Aiming for a 720-740 score. Im still a college senior and am planning to apply for R2 in jan to all colleges.
I really really hope i touch the magic 700 hundred figure.
Will keep you all updated.
I would really love any suggestions/comments/solace !

Well. I am in a similar boat. My practice scores are all in mid 650. I am hoping to hit more than 700. My test is tomorrow.

If you think you are beaten, you are;
If you think you dare not, you don’t.
If you’d like to win, but think you can’t,
It’s almost a cinch you won’t.

If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost,
For out in the world we find
Success begins with a fellow’s will;
It’s all in the state of mind.

If you think you’re outclassed, you are;
You’ve got to think high to rise.
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.

Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man;
But soon or late the man who wins
Is the one who thinks he can.

First and Foremost , I would say is to maintain your calm. Frankly speaking speaking GMAT is not much of a brainer, with some practice and right attitude you can hit the magic number of 700 +.

Believe me your score in MGMAT or Kaplan / Princeton for that matter has nothing to do with your actual score. Only treat Powerprep score as the refrence for any benchmarking.

if you are good in Quant, I would suggest you need to aim to touch 49 / 50 to have your score in 700+ range. Funda is simple, Do ensure your initial 20 questions are right and for rest of the questions , do try to make them right. Also ensure you are not marking wrong answers consequently as that will prove fatal.

For CR, RC , I would say concentration is the key. For SC , do ensure you are not on look out for any fundamentals in the exam, the concepts should be on the tips.

I will not suggest to burn yourself at this point...keep your confidence high..revise the concepts..prepare a strategy to crack the exam and hit the bulls eye..

Good luck and put crack.

good luck. mgmat 1= 600 is a good score.

with some prep, you might get over 700.

i wouldn't worry about MGMAT too much.

it gives you a good sense of the format of real GMAT and i think its sentence correction problems are excellent.

i personally never got higher than 700 on the MGMAT and got 690 about 3 weeks prior to my third GMAT attempt.

i'd just relax and review some concepts until the day before the exam. get a good night's rest the day before the exam.
