Do I stand a Chance??? [#permalink]

Hello all,

I recentlly took the diagnostic exam given by Kaplan. It was the first time I have taken such an exam, and with no prior exp, or studying. I scored an embarassing 370
I am taking the 1 month prep course, then taking the actual Gmat on Aug 13th.
I know that I can improve on Quantative part, but my real troubles lie in the read comp parts....
Is a Goal of 600 out of reach and not realistic?
I would hate spend all this money(\$1200 Kaplan + \$250 Gmat) when I can't even get into a school that averages 530-670 GMAT scores...
Please be honest....Is that much of increase impossible???

Thank you

I can tell u by my own experience. Just like you I didn't have a clue of the test when I took the KAP diagonistic and scored a miserly 590. However, my actual GMAT score was 760, an 170 point increase. So, yes a 200 points increase is possible if u r willing to put in the effort. But I think 1 mo of prep time might not be enuf for you to reach ur goal. Now as far as value of classroom is concerned, I personally never believed in them. I don't think that they can teach you anything more than u can do on ur own using various books and this forum. Having said that, it wud be better if someone who has taken a classroom course can jump in here and detail his/her exp.

Good Luck !

P.S.: Moving this thread to the correct forum (GMAT).

Getting up to 600's is easier than getting to 700's so you sure have a good chance.

Don't forget that Kaplan tests usually underpredict one's true score.
