I Gave My First GMAT last year & scored a meager 590 in Aug Last Year. I Prepared For Another 10-11 Months And Finally Succeded In Scoring 700 (Q48 V37).

The EmpowerGMAT MBA Course was really Helpful For My Preparation. I Liked The Way It Is Structured, And The Practical Tips And Strategies It Offers. For QUANTs, We Have Test-It & Triage Strategies Which Really Were Helpful During The Exam.

In The VERBAL Section, I Really Liked The CR Box That Has Been Prescribed For CR Accuracy. It Gives A Template To Your Thought Process And Increases The Probability Of Getting The Correct Answer. Similarly, RC And SC Have Helpful Strategies And Courses.
Other Than These Empower GMAT Has Summary PDFs And Tips For Exam Preparation, After Doing A Course Consistently For 5-6 Weeks I Was Confident Enough And Booked My Test Date.

Few other tips

Persevere: if you perform poorly do not blame yourself. Figure out which sections are your strengths and which are your weaknesses. Once you know this as a sculptor polish your strengths, and make your weakness into your strength. I knew I was weak with verbal, esp. CR and SC.

I gave in total 34+ mocks, so by that time I was super used to exam timings, and in fact in my mock just before the exam I finished quants with 15 mins left.

Diligently review your mistakes after each mock, empower GMAT has a mistake tracker you can use.

Keep your eye on the big picture of getting your MBA done, and GMAT is just a stepping stone.

Hi aru010,

That's OUTSTANDING news! A 700/Q48 is an outstanding Score - and raising a 590 to a 700 is a fantastic achievement! With that 700, you can comfortably apply to any Business Schools that interest you, so you shouldn't hold back when it comes to your applications! I can't recall if we've ever discussed your application plans before.

1) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
2) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

Hi aru010,

You've named some highly-competitive Schools, so beyond needing a competitive GMAT Score (which you have), you also need a strong OVERALL profile AND you need to properly 'market yourself' to each individual Program that you apply to. As such, you might want to work with an Admissions Expert on your applications. We actually have a go-to Expert who we recommend - and as an EMPOWERgmat Alum, we can set you up with a free consultation. If you're interested, then just let me know.

Congratulations again on all of your success so far!

aru010 - with a 700, you would probably be competitive for Judge, SAID, and nearly there for LBS and INSEAD. Having said that, you should definitely aim for higher scores if you want to secure a scholarship. Take a look at these articles below:
