Hello all,

I sat for the GMAT today and got a 720 (48Q, 41V). I know that this is a decent score, but I am aiming for a 750+ and know that a mere one-point increase in both sections can get me there.

Does anybody who has jumped from 720 to 750+ have any advice?

Thank you in advance :)!

Hi JoeGmat1,

First off, a 720/Q48 is an outstanding score (it's above the 90th percentile overall), so you can comfortably apply to any Business Schools that interest you. As such, a retest is probably not necessary. Depending on the Schools that you plan to apply to, you would likely find it beneficial to speak with an Admissions Expert about your overall profile. There's a Forum full of those Experts here:

http://gmatclub.com/forum/ask-admission ... tants-124/

If you're dead-set on retesting, then it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on EACH of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
4) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
5) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
6) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,

I didn't do it in the actual GMAT, but when I started preparing, my first mock gave me a 710. From there I was able to take it up to a 750 in the actual test.

The way to go about it is to identify in which area you can make improvement fast.

For me, I was scoring Q49+ consistently in my mocks. SO i devoted my prep time entirely to VA.

In your case to reach a 750+ I think a good target would be around Q50 V42. So you can brush up your Quant and work more on either one of SC, RC or CR depending on where you are currently lagging.

Hi JoeGmat1,

You already are a top level student!
Yes, you can surely improve your score as you already have decent math skills.
Since we are specialized in math, we can give you advice on math only.

In order to hit a high score(Q49-51) in GMAT Math, it is critical to learn ​hard and hardest DS questions determining a score of 49-51. To tackle these questions, we recommend you learn our Variable approach for DS that is significant time saving, a short-cut approach. Especially, you need to learn so called ​CMT(Common Mistake Types​ 3,4​)​. You will encounter 4-5 CMT questions in actual exam. If you get a half of them correct, you hit 49.
If you get 1-2 of them wrong, you hit 50. If you get all of them correct, you hit 51.

Also, focus on 5 key ​topics ​(Integer, Statistics, Inequality, Probability, Absolute Value) that account for 80% of GMAT exam.

Please find the useful link for Ultimate Q51 guide featured in GMAT Club​. Link

If you would like to know more about the CMT questions, you can have a check on our website where you can try our Free Resources as well including ​"​4-hour video lesson, Diagnostic Test and Mock Test​" ​ ​www.mathrevolution.com ​

Happy Studying!
