Enough with hiding in the corner. I just took the GMAt today got 650 q37 v 42. Dissapointed with my quant scores (52percentile). No hope of top 10 b-schools. I wish I knew about and was active in this forum earlier. I have sworn to get 700+ next time. I think I have problems with timing plus I was rather panicky today and had to guess last five questions.

I studied on my own using Mgmat, OG11, challenges and Princeton Review. Did all the OG questions, did the Mgmat cats and scored an average of 640 but I was told that they were much harder than the real thing so I ignored these scores plus scored 660 and 710 on gmat prep 1 and 2. Got to the challenges too late ( 5days to my exam and so only did a couple).

Any ideas on next steps
?

Hey o,

I've taken the GMAT twice and quant my weakness at first. My first attempt was 700, with a 95th percentile in verbal and 66th in quant. I knew I could do better, so I pinpointed the types of quant probs that were hurting me (ratios, probability...) and studied up on them. Also, the challenges on GMAT club are great for building your quant.

All said, I took it a second time and my quant jumped to 85th percentile... Unfortunately, i forgot to stay refreshed on my verbal and it dipped to 89th, so i ended with a 710. that being said, i'm happy with my score and the fact that i'm balanced between the two areas.

OK. that's all my rambling.... Do some challenges and pinpoint the problem types that are giving you a hard time.

You'll get it done in no time!
