After putting it off for months I sat the GMAT yesterday. I was very pleased with the outcome (even if it's slightly biaised towards Verbal Reasoning).

A big thank you to everybody on the forum - I've posted when I've had something to say, but I've mainly lurked and learned from the more prolific GMAT Clubbers.

As for the exam itself. It certainly seemed less gruelling in practice than I'd anticipated. The two AWA half-hours flew. From that into Quant where I was immediately stumped by several weird exponent questions (fractions to the power of -1/2, -1/4 etc) - I simply hadn't a clue how to deal with these. Very little on probability, nothing on Permutations / Combinations, quite a bit of Geometry. By the time VR started I was tired and got bored with the subject matter really easily. I pulled myself together, tried to concentrate and finished up with a good bit of time to spare - I think the VR time allowance is quite luxurious.

Anyway that's just my two cent worth on the exam - not worth getting too intimidated about. Thanks again to everybody for all the help.

nice one champ!

just a couple of Qs,

- How did u fair in the various CATS?
- What is your time management like? In quant do u guess straight away if you know a question will take you a long time? or do you fight it for a couple of minutes?

I got 740 and 780 on the GMAT Preps, but didn't think anything like that was realistic because I'd already seen so many of the questions on this forum.

In terms of time management, I was worried about not having enough time to finish quant so I probably rushed a few of the earlier questions - I was trying to stay within two minutes per question all the time. Looking back, I'd say I was too conscious of staying ahead of the clock - you can probably afford to go three or four minutes behind in the middle of the exam and still complete all questions in the 75 minutes.

Hi Raffie,
Can you give some tips on your verbal study technique/strategy?
I'm particularly curious about your RC and CR techniques. What materials did you use?

thanks

Hi Soni

To be honest, I think most of CR and RC is common sense. Whenever I saw "strategies" for dealing with these, my eyes glazed over! I guess the most important thing is to be familiar with the format and know what to expect - the easy way to do that is just to chip away at the forum here. If you're pretty good with the questions posted here, I'd say keep practicing and don't overelaborate. If you're having trouble, then it might be time to try identifying your weaknesses and think about an approach..

Sorry I can't be of much more help!

I would hate for Raffie to lose his marvellous score, so I request that you not ask him questions about actual questions

Apologies, did not want him to talk about actual problems -- just surprising concepts in problems like the exponent ones he encountered/mentioned.

Good job! I, like you, seem to just "get" RC and CR, however what was your approach to SC?
