Hi everybody!
Thanks for all ur inputs and special thanks to BB for his absolutely wonderful site, which is a need for anyone aspiring for GMAT.

I got 640 (Q 49, V29) hmmmmm sure I'm not the other one's on this site who score 700+ but anyways I couldn't have got better after such a huge gap in my studies. And this score serves the purpose for which I was working. Although I was working towards 700, but as my RC and CR were pretty bad I didn't had much hopes.

Probability: was so damn easy that i dont have word to describe here. It was not even 1% of Stolyar's probability. I got 2 questions, first was P(A) and P(B) are given u've to find P(A) *P(B), 2nd one was how to arrange n books out of so many books, I hope its clear.
Then there was one range Q that one time the range is this and the other time the range is this what is the minimum range for the whole period.
Rest were all very basic questions in DS, which are in loads in OG.
My first question was a complicated fraction to look a but very simple to solve.

I'm not sharing my verbal experience as my score can tell u better that I'm not qualified to do so.

U r most welcome to ask for any inputs
Yes My PP was 710, 750 and GMAT Paper test were all 750 (3)
Kaplan was 640,570, 610

Bye and best of luck in your preparations.

Yes one more thing, I just remembered to brush up compund interest and its formula. and u wont belive only one question came on CI and it just required the figures to be put in the formula.
2- work problems of usual types were there.
2- Speed Distance Q
DS was very very simple no modules.

Hi aps_can!

Congratulations! I remember about a month ago you posted about your concerns about the GMAT getting harder and now that you managed to kick some GMAT tail you must be very relieved!

About your quant experience, quite refreshing to hear someone endorse the OG and not say it's "irrelevant" and such. However, did you encounter many disguised or trick type questions? Did you end up guessing on any of the questions?

Congrats aps_can. It sounds like your quant experience seems to be in line with the OG. That hasn't been everyone's experience lately, but I guess GMAC and ETS throws different types of questions for different test takers.

No fortunately enough there was not a single question except the Range question I posted, in which I 'd any problem it was simple easy and smooth cake walk, when I finished the test I knew this is going to be my score. So u can imagine!!!

About work problem it was related with money like if one does a work and is paid @ $x per hour and there is a fixed cost added to it then whats the diff in the cost if both work together.??? And the speed time distance was very simple, the figures were given in x y and z and we were required to give the distance in terms of xy and z. aps_can Manager Joined: 13 Aug 2003 Posts: 68 Location: India Followers: 1 Kudos [?]: 1 [0], given: 0 ### Show Tags 31 Aug 2003, 02:28 Hi Congrats on ur score....well ur quant score is really good. Wanted to ask the members how accurate are scores given by princeton and other tests . Coz I am having an absolute nightmare understanding them. Its been a month since I started preparations and this weekend I decided togive the Prince ton test 1 . I got 32 right in Quant and 32 right in Verbal but my score read Quant -44 and Verbal-34(Cant belive it!) and total score read 620. I had given a PP last weekand after 3 weeks of preparation to assess my progress and scored a 680 .And I feel I improved upon my verbal in the Princeton test but the score is so weird. Sojust wanted to aask u guys if the score on the tests other than PP are really indicative. I felt the questions were ofm the same level on both the tests. Also I have heard the first 5 questions count more than the rest. How true is that...Well guys thid forum is really wonderful and with comments coming from everywhere it really bolsters ones preparations. Keep the good workgoing folks.! cheers neeraj Manager Joined: 30 May 2003 Posts: 92 Location: Toronto Followers: 1 Kudos [?]: 2 [0], given: 0 GMAT [#permalink] ### Show Tags 31 Aug 2003, 08:00 Its more important to see how many u do wrong and what score u get on PR and other test is not so important as much as knowing how many u did wrong and do u understand why u did them wrong. My experience sasys GMAT Math is not tough maths, it is also not requiring too many calculations it simple and straight and solving these tough questions on PR and Kaplan u start seeing the questions to understand whats being asked and once u understand that its as simple as doing 2+2 =4 And I got such simple fraction as my first question so I fail to understand that hypothesis that first few quesions on GMAT are tough. The second was a simple data sufficiency problem and a tougher of the two work problems came almost in the end and the simpler was there in 1st five.Rest is up to u to assume Manager Joined: 11 Jun 2003 Posts: 72 Location: Moscow, Russia Followers: 1 Kudos [?]: 0 [0], given: 0 Re: GMAT [#permalink] ### Show Tags 01 Sep 2003, 00:40 aps_can wrote: No fortunately enough there was not a single question except the Range question I posted, in which I 'd any problem it was simple easy and smooth cake walk, when I finished the test I knew this is going to be my score.

Found.

BTW, can you share (just change them a little bit) those three problems that you still can not solve from your previous exam?
