1. last week, I focused only on OG11 and did almost all Verbal in order to keep feeling of real GMAT.
2. I focused on "active" reading technique (Gin's technique: not skip, restate, exaggerate) that gave me confidence in RC and CR. I was surprised by my improving up to 95% in RC.
3. I worked on concentration: one-on-one fight with each questions like in a video game. It works.

I’m really happy not only because I got 750, but also because it is very important not to give up and work hard.

I’m pretty well in mathematics, because I finished physical mathematical school, have Master of Science, Master of Finance, and PhD in Nanotechnology (Physics).

Verbal
4. RC. I tried two methods: Rhyme’s (skipping) and Gin’s (very careful reading). Both methods are good but Gin’s was exactly what I needed. I read slowly, but usually answered without return to text. I used “active” reading, restated each paragraph in own exaggerated words and always tried to answer tone and prime purpose questions before reading real questions.

P.S. By the way, my 1-year son started to walk a few weeks ago :) Be positive!


You are education-certificates hunter. MSc, MF, PHD, and now MBA :( . I wonder when you will stop :-D


Rhyme is good method, however, I seem to be fit with careful reading method. I can not find GIN's technique in our website. Walker, can you show me pls!

BTW, the girl in red is quite cute :). Who is that?

That's awesome that you have a group picture like that. I've read several posts how new people are amazed that this truly a "community" and it really is.

I guess the labels on the picture really do away with anonymity. I'm not anonymous anymore either....my avatar is a self-portrait.

Wow, this is a truly inspiring story! Congratulations!

When you say that math portion of the real GMAT was a typical "GMATPrep", are you referring to the GMAT club challenges?
