Hi everyone,

I just wanted to share my gmat experience.

I was aiming for 700+ , but got a 660.

The Quant score was a little higher than what I expected, but the verbal score was way lower than what I expected.

I have done both the OG 11 (yellow book) and OG 11 verbal, and got 2 or less wrong for every 10 CR, and also 2 or less wrong for every 10 SC.

I thought i was well prepared for SC and CR, but I did not take time to review RC, because i thought its more of something where if I focus enough, I would do okay on.

I want to ask for some opinions on whether I should retake the gmat soon.
1. How soon can i retake the gmat again? (is it 3 weeks after your test date?)
2. I graduated from UC Davis last month with Economics major, currently applying for a job in financial services and investment banking.

Although the GMAt is mainly for applying to MBA programs, and helps a little when you put a good score on resumes when you apply for jobs, should I still retake early?

I am confident that I can score above 660. Meanwhile, I will continue to practive my verbal gmat skills while looking for a job.

All suggestions are welcome, thanks for reading my post.

Jerry

I believe its 1 month after your test date. I would recommend retaking it soon and getting it out of the way while the material is still fresh in your head. You don't want to step back into this in 2 years and have to start from scratch.
