Dear friends, my real GMAT date is 4th Dec. So far its been 3 weeks that I am preparing for GMAT. Initially when I taken dignostic test I realised that I have forgotten most of the math concept. Hence I studied just basics of all sections of GMAT. Today on Sunday, I took first GMATPrep test. In math section I could solve only 25 questions out of which 8 were incorrect answers. Hence I scored 31 in math. I did not realise I am falling short of time. In verbal section, same thing happened. At the end of 28th questions I had just 5 minutes left. Hence I have to do guess work from 28th till 41st questions. In math I did not get time even to do guess work. Overall my score is just 430. I am pretty much depressed.

I guess I have to improve a lot on speed. Whatever I prepare if speed is low my efforts will not pay me right result. Hence please help me on improving pace..speed of GMAT.

I wanted to ask you gous - how was ur first experiend when you take GMATPrep first time? Did you take any other test before GMATPrep.?

thanks..

Yash

I took

Kaplan diagnostic test first. and ended up with 480. mostly guessed i guess

then took Powerpre, guessed at the end 2 or 3 questions.

took Gmat prep. i think i did well on it. just met the time.

only problem i got is Verbal. it takes me too long to read the passage and figure out what i am reading.

now i hope i have some improvement. but have not taken any test yet.

do not worry about the time for the first attemtp or the first ones. you have to do practice on no-time mode first and then try with timed mode.

initially everyone does have problem with time and speed. you improve it as you go through GMAT prep process
