This GMATPrep SC Document is going to be very useful given that the verbal is getting way too tough these days...

Thank you very much for providing this resource.

Just gave the test today and got a 750 (Q49, V44). While overall I am definitely happy and relieved I must admit I am a little dissapointed with the quant score. Never scored less than 50, but some stupid decisions I made during the test cost me a 50+ quant score.

Here were my test scores:

GMATPrep1: 760
GMATPrep2: 760
MGMAT 1: 760
MGMAT2: 750
MGMAT3:750
MGMAT4: 730
MGMAT5: 760
MGMAT6: 770

GMATPrep2 (retake): 790

Preparation:

OG - First of all I personally do NOT believe that the OG is the bible. OG is just the first step and by no means will it prepare you for a 720+ score. 80% of the OG is way easier than Gmatprep and the actual test so keep that in mind. Do not built false confidence by doing well in OG. OG should be the FIRST thing you do and thats it, after that you must move on to more difficult sources.

MGMAT - The best CATs by far. I would highly recommend them

SCs - Manhattan SC. A lot of people swear by this as the SC bible, but once again I beg to differ. I think it is a stepping stone, but by no means is it the be all and end all of everything to do with SC. In fact the book doesnt cover a lot of the ground for the really tough SCs in GMAT, such as Ellipsis. However, this MUST be the starting point for all study in SC.

The best source for SC in the last 2 weeks of prep is the GMatPrep document on this website that covers ALL of the problems posted in GmatPrep. Once you go through that you will realize that for the most difficult questions, simple parallelism, pronoun rules don't suffice. Learning about these problems is the single most important thing you can do for SC prep.

CR/RC - Practice, Practice, Practice. No material to learn here, the more you practice the better you become.

Finally during your practice tests, whenever you get something wrong, don't brush past it, but understand why you went wrong. Search for the problem on this forum or the Manhattan forums (highly recommended)

Now onto quant.

Now during the test, I felt like I was doing well in the first 15 qns of quant and got some tough DS's, but then I got a nasty DS that stuck with me through the test. I should have guessed and moved forward, but I refused to let go. I wasted about 7 mins on this and paid for it at the end by guessing the last 3-4 qns semi-blindly. Pick the battles you want to fight.

I felt the verbal considerably easier than anything I had done. Every SC seemed to be water-tight and apart from a few CRs towards the end and a nasty RC at the very end, I was in control throughout.

So there you go, I am done with it.. feel free to ask me any questions.

Congrats on the score! I have to agree with everything you posted - I don't think there is any one "bible / silver bullet" that will address all of your issues during the preparation phase. Also, I too got stuck on a problem early on - but I wound up guessing on at least a few questions later on that I knew I didn't want to waste time on. "Pick your battles" is sound advice.

congrats great score.

I looked at the GMATfocus product for quants section, there are two, one priced for \$25 and other for \$65, which is preferable?

And it is advisable to buy this one when I just have three weeks of time before my exam?I am already taking GMAT challenges.

Please let me know if you have any idea about timed online verbal section test.

I'm pretty sure you agree not to share questions from the test when you take it. I think you can even have your scores revoked if they find out you are sharing the questions.

Please do not post asking for users to disclose actual problems from the test. This is a STRICT no-no. The GMAC has stringent regulations that forbid any test taker to disclose actual problems. If a user does that here, he/she might be subject to some strict action as well.

Please consider yourself warned and refrain from doing this again.

Excellent score Sterny and thanks for the docs.
Also, how will you rate the verbal section of MGMAT? Like for quant, 49+ in MGMAT is good, i am unable to evaluate my ability from verbal section of MGMAT. Can you please help.
