Hi all,
Just got done with GMAT. I am little dissapointed with my quant score and also that I couldn't reach 700 but will still take what I got with a smiley face. Anyway my score is 690 ( Q46,V38, 91%).

I don't know where to begin, first, I would like to thank BigB & other management members for founding such as wonderful site. GMAT club is truely a wonderful site. I feel proud to be part of it.

Paul, you are awsome, your posts were invaluable. Thank you very much. HongHu thanks for your willingness to help out others even after completing GMAT. There are many others, Gayathri, Praet, Venksune, Dogita, ywilfred,Ghoooc it was a pleasure studying with you all. Thank you all very much. Ofcourse, there are so many others that I haven't mentioned who helped me so much. Anyway, I will continue to stick around in GMAT club for some time and answer questions. I will write more about my preparation at a later time. Please feel free to shoot me with questions.

Regards,

Praveen

Congratulations Once again..

Few questions:
1. How did you manage ur timing in Verbal during exam?
2. How were you feeling during exam in Verbal portion compared with what u used to feel during practise tests?
3. What were ur practise test scores?

Thanks JPV, I was strong in SC & CR & weak in RC. Also, I was a very quick to pull the trigger. In fact that was what I had to work on the most. I found real test SC to be no more difficult than the ones in OG. In real test SC, ETS would use same old tricks to fool me. CR I had 2 bold face questions. They were some what trickier. RC was very tiring. I probably spent most time trying to make sure I hammer RC right. Like I said before, GMAT verbal is all about concept. Once you understand the concept you can easily out smart the test. I kind of got rushed at the end, might have picked two questions wrong because of that. In CR key is, after you read through the questions you should be able to pin point one and say "Ah hah", then you know you got it.

I used to do lot of mini tests not full length tests. I know it is not a good idea. I always had confidence on my endurance, so didn't really felt a need to prove it. I did take PP tests about 8 months ago and scored 690 & 710 respectively. Tried to do 9 official tests, but I would know most of the questions, hence abandoned the idea. I would highly recommend you do GMAT plus sections, they will give you a great experience. Also, most importantly keep an error log and keep reviewing on a periodic basic. Remember, if you have gotten a question wrong once, there is a high likelyhood that you will get it wrong again. This is what ETS thrives on. One way to avoid is to get the concept into your sub conscious level and make it a part of you. Hope this helps.
