Hey All,

I had some questions about my Enhance Score Report From GMAT. It helped me to discover that there is much room for improvement in my Quantitative as compared with my Verbal. I plan to focus almost entirely on the Quant, as it seems to have the best chance of raising my score.

The GMAT ESR offered this piece of advice. Now I want to try to understand how many problems I actually got wrong on the exam. These numbers don't seem to add up to actual percents out of any section of the exam. Is there a way to break these down into actual number of questions answered incorrectly. tma

You responded correctly to 71% of the first set of questions, 86% of the second set of questions, 43% of the third set of questions and 71% of the final set of questions..

I don't mind sharing my full ESR, and can send it to anyone who wants to look at it on request.

Hi energies,

If you send me your ESR (through PM or email), then I'll be happy to analyze it for you. Before I can offer you the specific advice about how to improve, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for each)?

Goals:
4) What is your goal score?
5) When are you planning to retake the GMAT?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

I've studied for about three months continuously before taking the exam. I also had studied about a month over the summer, but had to stop and then picked up the studying again in September.
I've used the Official Guide materials, and the Magoosh study course, I do think the Magoosh online material was really helpful.
On my most recent CAT.
Kaplan CAT: 45Q 34V and 650 overall
GMAT Prep1: 45Q 40V and 690 overall
GMAT Prep2: 49Q 38V and 710 overall

My Goal Score is a 760-780
Planning to Retake in Two Weeks, although this is ambitious, I hope to improve my Quant to make up for the difference. The two week deadline, is because after the holidays, I start a new job and will not likely have another chance to take the exam.
Planning to Apply To Business School during next years rounds.
I plan to apply to HBS and MIT Sloan

You got 5, 6, 3, and 5 questions correct, for a total of 19 out of 28 (the other questions don't count towards your score).

Okay. Awesome! Thanks. I had somehow forgot to include the experimental questions. I am really surprised they make up such a significant part of the score!

Of the total number of questions, not the score. Those 9 questions don't impact the score at all
