Hi,

I appeared for GMAT 2 days back and scored a whopping 51 in Quant. This was my second attempt at GMAT after appearing for GMAT almost 4 years ago. My current score is 710 (because of Verbal 34) which not sufficient enough to get me an entry into top 7, I will be retaking GMAT in next 3 weeks.

Study Material


Completed the course curriculum by going through GMAT Club Verbal Math Book by bb Bunuel

Practise


GMAT Club Tests. You can purchase one with access for a few days to save money, and attempt these tests almost every alternate day, till the time you hit 51 in this test. These tests are relatively tougher than actual GMAT, but its always better to practise on a tough scale.

My Scores were -
GMAT Club Quant Tests - 49 on 15th August, 50, 49, 51, 49, 51 on 13th September
GMAT PREP - 50, 50, and 50 in three official GMAT Prep Mocks.

Exam Day


I opted Section Sequence - Verbal --> Quant --> IR --> AWA
After realising that my Verbal section has got screwed(I wasn't sure if I was answering lot of questions correctly), I knew I had to score 51 in order to have an OKAY GMAT Score. I was focused and determined.
While giving the exam I got stuck at just 1 or 2 Questions for which I could not figure out the method to solve. Moreover, in Quant we only come to know about our mistakes when we do the analysis. Upon my analysis of ESR(for which we need to pay ~30$ including taxes post the exam), I interpreted that I did just 12th question incorrect and that question took my 7 minutes of time. Still I was fortunate enough to increase my speed and keep solving the remaining questions as I had only completed 33% of questions by that time.

Take Away


Scoring a 51 in Quant is not that tough, all those who are scoring 50 as well in Mocks, can achieve 51 by keeping following things in mind

a) Having the concept/ basic formulaes in mind - e.g. that a Standard Deviation does not change if you add or subtract x from a set of numbers.
b) You don't need to solve the DS Questions. The question just asks if the Statements are sufficient to solve the question. You dont need to solve, arrive at the absolute answer, and then decide whether you can solve it or not.
c) There are couple of excessively easy questions in GMAT. These are the questions you can solve under 1 min(even after doing a double check on answer), and save the remaining time to give extra emphasis on slightly tough questions.
d) Don't just follow the 75 min/37 Ques rule for each question. Few questions will take 3 minutes, few will take 2 minutes, and few will take 1 minute.
e) Don't waste 4-5+ minutes on any question. This is too much, and if you find any question way too hard - you can just guess and move on.

I hope this helps. Buying a ESR from mba.com after your GMAT is very helpful, if you are planning to retake GMAT. Now I need to work on my Verbal, and hence I opted to buy and found it worthy.

Congrats. A 710 is a good score with 51 in quant.

1) How did you find the questions in verbal? Is official guide a good source/ representative of the types/levels of questions one can get in the exam?
2) Were all the questions 700 plus in quant or you also got easier questions (as you got 51 in quant)?
3) Which mock tests did you use?


Thanks

Hi gaitbhu,

First of all congrats on that Q51.

After looking at your GmatClub Quant scores Q51 is not a surprise. You really are good in Quants :D

However, I have the query regarding your Analysis of ESR. How did you check that it was the 12th question that you got wrong? Would please let me know about it.

If you could post the ESR then it would help alot. Thanks :)

Congratulation for your great Q51.

I have a question regarding first question you had in the Qaunt.

Can you please let me know what concept was your first question and was the question totally new to you or was it something you've already seen?

Also, i sent you a private message that i really appreciate if you could help me with it?

Hi HKD1710,

Well the ESR analysis doesn't tell exactly which question was wrong - it does tell the % correct by breaking the section into 4 parts. Its my Data Interpretation and memory which made me reach to this conclusion that it was somewhere around Q12. However, by further analysis I am sure that it was the only Ques. wrong for which I took 7 minutes. Though not sure if I am allowed to post the ESR here, but since its helpful and it promotes GMAT Takers to pay for ESR, I can upload one screenshot.

Hi Heseraj

I don't remember which concept the first question tested. Sorry mate! But I am sure it was not a tough question.
