Thanks a lot! My Gmatprep scores were 720 and 750. I took them fairly late, so I wouldn't really be able to tell you how I progressed.

As for mistakes, my first and foremost tip would be: practice, practice and practice. Secondly, it sounds stupid, but read the question carefully: if we speak about a number, it can be positive or negative, integer or not. If the question mentions a positive integer, exclude the other numbers. It sounds stupid, but this cost me a lot of mistakes in the beginning. It's worth taking 5 more seconds per question to carefully read it.

1000 tests are word documents with 1000 questions for SC, RC, CR. Do a search on the forum and you'll find the docs easily.

Hi Audio,

Congratunation, you have a great score.
You said: "What I would also do is seriously browse this website for tips, there is some great advice out here. For example, recognizing the 3/2 structure is very helpful."

Do you mind providing it, or pasting a link here? Really appreciated!

Thank you,

Thank you,

If you do a search, I'm sure you'll find it. Plus if you browse in the "new to the verbal forum?" topic in the verbal forum, you should find it easily (the 3/2 structure is a structure you find in verbal questions). You'll also find other very precious tips.

Good luck!

Thank you Audio,

Digging the forum sparked my thought after this post. I finished "New to Math forum". I am sure to finish Verbal forum aslo.

Regards,

Thanks very much for the tips.

As for a beginner, where would you recommend me to start?

It's been a while since I took that test, but I'll try to remember

First of all, my answer would be: it depends (great help isn't it??). The first questions you need to be asking yourself are: how good am I (honestly) in math? Am I a native speaker? For me the answers were "very good" and "no", so I knew I had to focus on verbal (scored 49 on math and 42 on verbal).

What I would do for starters is simply buy the Gmat book (the bible) and do a couple of exercises (I think there is some sort of review exam in there), just to get the feeling of the questions. You should do that because the data insufficiency questions can be a bit confusing in the beginning. Then after that I'd do one of the Gmat exams for the program you download on mba.com. That would be your first reality check. Depending on the kind of score you do, you will know where your strong and weak points are. Depending on that you should work on your weaknesses but not neglect your strengths. After that it's a question of having the right books and practicing.

In my opinion you don't need classes (unless you're either very rich or with a very inadequate background in math and verbal). Books are good enough.

Last point: I'm a pretty good test-taker, especially when it comes down to what I would call "speed" tests (a lot of short questions). I took a couple of tests like that in my life (including the CFA, which is an exam playing in a completely different league compared to Gmat), so I had experience with me. However, some people are either not good "speed" test takers, or simply have no experience. I would advise you then to practice in real conditions, with a timer. It does make a difference. I didn't do it because I felt quite comfortable about it, but if you're not, then you should do it.

Anyway, I hope this is clear enough for starters. Please ask if you have any other questions.

Well, I didn't really follow a particular scheme, I just practiced. That's the only secret I guess: you can plan as much as you like, but only practice will get you there IMO.
