Hi All,
Finished my GMAT today and scored a 650 overall. I am quite surprised as I thought I had really mucked up the test. I guessed on the last 10 questions in the math section. I think I got a little bit nervous somewhere in the middle and lost time on certain questions. I thought I was doing well until then, got some probablity, perms and combs and coordinate geometry questions.
Overall, I did not feel the test was very hard. What I did find is that one cannot afford to lose his or her nerves during the test, a bit is ok, and you can get back, but not for an extended period of time as the nervousness can affect how you think and approach the math section especially.
Verbal was usual, I got 4 RC's passages, one boldface CR and some long sentence correction q's, but nothing too crazy. Getting a good grasp of the official guide can certainly prepare one well on the verbal, with the math section needing some more practise on sets, probability, perms and combs.
After the end of the math section, I really thought of cancelling my scores as I had guessed the last ten questions randomly since there was no time left. I felt miserable after having spent some good time studying with kaplan and the official guide. In the break between the math and the verbal, I thought of atleast doing my best on the rest of the test to get an experience. The verbal did not seem that difficult and I sailed through the test.
I still wanted to cancel, but thought it a waste of money as I would have no idea as to how I had done, so I told myself that I would have to live with a score of mid 500's. To my surprise, I got a 650, so certainly I don't feel that bad, but my aim was to really get a 700+.
I am too tired to think about whether I should take it again, but certainly would like to get into the top 10-15 schools and think that would need scores of 700+ or higher.

Any advice is appreciated............whether more preparation will help me get my score up to 700 as it does involve taking risk of lowering your scores as well.

Your score is good, but if you want 700+, there is only one answer: try again

My turn again tomorrow. How was the Quant compared to OG. Btw, lots of peeps get into top ten schools with less than 670-700, so congrats, you're real close.

Hi peeps,
The quant was a little more thought provoking. I certainly think that one should not jump right into the question and give it a couple of seconds of how to solve it best and quickest. There were some coordinate geometry, perm and combs, and probability q's.
