A very unusual GMAT [#permalink]

Hi,

i joined this forum a little too late to capitalize on all the help available, but did benefit from all the questions posted. really want to thank the guys running the show here.

made a 750 on the exam today and wanted to put in my 2 cents for the benefit of others.

my test was very different from what i expected. the quant ( i was doing consistently well with more than 49 always) was decent. 11th question was a combinations one and the 12th was a stats q, so i thought that i must be sailing smoothly. but eventually got a 49 on that section. that was a little dissappointing coz i had 50, 50 on kaplan math. but hey no complaints.

the verbal was very messy. started with 5 SC's, followed by 2 RC's. sapped me of all my energy. and then the CR was very alien. very unlike the OG. i had to read each question 5 times to figure out what they were talking about. All the CR's were like that. At the end i just did not know what to expect for a score. got a 42 on this section.

The AWA was also unusual, but not very tough.

Hope that helps. Any questions are welcome.

Hey avidya,
Great show... 8) Very pleased to hear that. I guess these days they blast off with SCs first then quickly 2 RCs and then CRs which are out of the world.

But given all this you might have really kept your nerves.

Great show again.... Congrauts and wish you all the very best in you future endeavor.

:D

Hi avidya

Chihao, have you considered taking the Kaplan or Princeton Review preparation course? If not the classroom, then the on-line?

Thanks for posting your feedback....

Actually I got exactly the same score as you did (49, 42) (92%, 96%).

I had a very similar problem set. #12 was a probability - I was happy to see it since it meant I was doing good, but then I was not as happy since I could not crack it. I missed it.

I don't remember much about my verbal, except one strange thing. After I answered question 41, I still had 40 secs left and I thought I'd let it run out, but then decided to move on, and after I clicked next another question showed up, another #41... very weird.... but I got it answered; it was a short SC I think.

in any case, appreciate your time.

Hi sejinro
In fact, I don't consider attending prep class or on-line class of kaplan and Princeton; on the one hand, I think their fare are expensive and doubt those sevice or class have extreme effective for real GMAT test. On the other hand, I have attended prep class(local craming school in Taiwan) three years ago. But,at that time, I could not take GMAT test because I must to go military service as a soldier for two years when I graduated from university.(In Taiwan, every adult men must be go military service for two years). After ending
my compulsory responsility for nation, I began to work up to now.
In fact, I only have a bit memory about GMAT, just so-called "rust"; therefore, I must refresh it and renew to study GMAT materials.
In sum, thank your suggestion.

Hi everybody,

bb, trust me, the pleasure of sharing my experience is all mine.

sergei, my kaplan scores were 620 and 660. 660 was just 2 days before the exam. as most of the posts will tell you, they can be increased by 50-100 points to indicate ur ETS score. my PP scores were 710 and 760. I made it a point to do both before working on the OG.

chihao, i think no matter how simple the paper, under the test conditions, things will look tough. so do not worry abt the pattern that u will receive. Just be mentally prepared for anything. I have seen people make mistakes on easy papers just because they could not believe how easy the questions were. This test seems to be more about aligning ones thinking in the ETS style. Once that is done, nothing will be tough. And best of luck.

Hi avidya
To tell the truth, it is pleasured that I can obtain some precious experience and suggestion and communicate with your for preparing GMAT test.
Thus, I deem investment in this GMATClub site for one hour a day, a practice that is rather worth. Maybe, now, I have been studying GMAT alone.
Therefore, I need your assistance on strategies and approach of preparing test.
avidya, I agree with your viewpoint about mental factor on GMAT test.
I tried to take Model-test(PR) yesterday; this experience makes me tired and painful on the process of taking test. Yet, only good thing let me realize my weakeness and strength of GMAT.

I just took test on Monday. I was on what I thought was the 41st V question and took my time reviewing my answer since it wad the last Q. I didn't hit submit until I had 5 seconds left and, to my surprise (and utter panic), another question popped up. Of course, I didn't have enough time to read the question, but I was quick enough to select a random answer. I've been kicking myself for messing up the numbering (particularly since i scored lower on verbal than on my practice tests (44 vs 46)) but it sounds like I got two question 41's like you. I'd never heard of that happening. I was even close to canceling my score.

I wonder how many others experienced the same thing??
