Hi All,

Took the GMAT yesterday... got 720... didn't do well on the verbal...the AWA went of well though
Q- 50, V - 38...
wonder how good this is for a top 10 school... any suggestions if i should retake it?

My scores were as below

PP1: 730
PP2(After finishing OG): 760
Kaplan: 630,640,680
challenge 1: 87 percentile

This is an excellent forum. I'll try and keep posting stuff here to help others benefit from my experience.

Will elaborate on my GMAT experience and prep in a separate post if someone would like to know.

cheers,
manan

Manan

Congratulations Great Score! I think this is sufficient for top schools. You are well within the middle 80 percent range!

Could you elaborate on your GMAT CAT experience in the Quant and specially the Verbal section (like were the Qs similar to OG, as tough as Kaplan etc)

Thanks

Manan:
Excellent overall score. Very well balanced score too. 96%ile in maths and 85%ile in verbal are perfect. Dont even think of retaking. I know people with this score in top 15.
But I was wondering that 50 q and 38 v should have given you atleast 730. I guess overall scoring has been changed a bit. Only a year back, one of my friends with exactly these scaled scores had 730.
Anyways.. you have done it . Now just nail the essays.
We would appreciate if you can come up with your preparation strategies for both V and Q. Do tell what you used to prepare for VERY GOOD 50 in QUANT!
GOOD LUCK

Hi all,

Here's my GMAT experience in a nutshell.

I got an easy 'argument' but a slightly cryptic 'issue'. Anyway wrote good essays so went into the Quant on an even note.

I was not expecting too many hiccups in Quant because I have a strong quant background. The questions were definitely not simple and the DS got quite tricky at times.
One small piece of advice - concentrate on DS questions with inequality. Those were really tough. I also got 2 Prob questions which were rather simple and anyone with regular practice on this forum should not have any problem whatsoever.
Apart from that I got 2 questions on co-ordinate geometry, one of which was based on circles and not so easy. All in all, I was under some time pressure in Quant (normally I finished the practice sessions in uner an hour). The Quant standard was definitely a notch or two above OG. Kaplan quant should suffice.

The Verbal was the googly as far as I was concerned. I got a horrible RC (about 80 lines) on history. It really sapped my energy. The CR was rather easy - in fact I would say it was easier than the OG. The SC however was standard with a good mix of easy and tough ones. I finished Verbal in under an hour and was actually quite happy with the way it went. Hence the disappointment on the low Verbal score. But for Verbal OG is the BEST. The rest are all trash.

My prep schedule...

Gave it about 4 weeks and concentrated on the Verbal because Quant was not a weak area for me. I solved all the CR's and SC's frm OG with a revision of those that I messed up in the first round. I also did about 100 questions from the SC mega-bank on this website. I also did all the Kaplan section tests and the full-length tests.
The free PR online test is also quite good as I feel it was tougher than the actual GMAT.

Well thats my story... would be more than happy to share any further information. This is an excellent forum. Keep browsing it for moral and technical support )

Cheers,
Manan
