This is hard to believe. There was no question on Counting topics at all?

Lots of overlapping sets, but no combinations/permutations!

Amazing score Kevincan!

I think you would have got a verbal 51 had you not left one unanswered. GMAtprep too penalizes heavily on missed questions.

You said RC was tough -- Could you please elaborate? Tougher than the last few passages of OG?
Why were the RC passages tough- Was it because of long passages with obtuse content or because of tricky inference questions with close choices.

Thanks!

Kevin , Awesome score !!!

Wasn't surprised to see your Quant score but I was sure surprised at your verbals . Did you prepare actively for it ? Looking forward to more of your questions in the quants forum ..

All I can say is you rock man !!!

Congratulations Kevin! I mean, it isn't surprising is it? But it's still a good job that needs to be commended.

What we should figure out is how to transfer the special knowlege and skills from your head to the others here in the forum. And you are doing wonderfully at that. Thanks.

I think this deserves a dance anyways.

I was right on the mark regarding the AWA score. I wish I were a faster typer. Has anyone heard how important this score is? I'm not applying to any B-schools, but it would be nice to what weight it is given by admissions officers so that I give the right message to my students, many of whom score higher than I did on the AWA. Embarrassing, but true!

A score of less than 4 will be more than enough to alert the adcoms but any score greater than 4 will not add anything extra to one's profile. B-school just want to make sure that you have written the application essays yourself.
