Hello to all enthusiastic GMAT aspirants!!

Sharing my prep experience with all of you:

Appeared for my first attempt at GMAT on 15.10.2012: Score 660/81% ( Q: 49/83% and V: 32/64%) AWA: 5.0

Took online classes of e-GMAT for 1 month for verbal only.

Appeared for my second attempt at GMAT on 21.11.2012: Score 710/92% ( Q: 50/90% and V: 34/69%), AWA: 4.0

Applied to LBS, Tuck and Darden in Jan'13 i.e. Round 2 and got rejected in all. So reputed business schools do care about your verbal skills and AWA.

Started preparing for GMAT again in Jan'14: Books used- Kaplan for verbal ( RC and CR), Manhattan for SC. Apart from these focused alot on improving verbal skills by reading tough verbiage novels/ newspapers.

Mock test results are as follow:

GMAT Prep 1: 770
Kaplan 1: 720
Kaplan 2: 700
Kaplan 3: 720
Kaplan 4: 750
Kaplan 5: 710

GMAT Prep 2: 730

Appeared for my third attempt at GMAT on 19.04.2014: Score 730/96% ( Q: 50/89% and V: 40/90%), AWA: 5.5.

Will be applying to couple of US universities this year & will also appear for TOEFL. ( Highly advisable for Asian students). My recommendations that there is no shortcut to improve your verbal skills. Just work hard and you can develop good verbal skills in 3-6 months. Wish you good luck for your aspirations. Take care guys!!

Varun,

Congratulations.

What you did differently this time around ? If someone gives you 4 months could you push your score to 760-770.
If so, Do you have some idea as how would you go about doing the same ?
