I gave my first gmat mock (manhattan) with no practice before. I scored 600. Is it possible to score a 720+ in a month's time?
Quant - 43
Verbal - 30

Hi mp123,

A 600 in first ever CAT without practice is really good. So it really shows your potential. Why don't you prepare for a week and give GMATPrep CAT-1 and after another week of prep give GMATPrep CAT-2. These CAT scores can be relied upon.

There are 4 more official CATs available Exam Pack-1 & 2 (both has two CATs each).

If you consistently score near your target score then go for the final exam.

IMO Quant score of manhattan is 2-3 points lower than GMATprep and verbal score of manhattan CAT is 2-3 points higher than GMATprep.

Hi mp123,

To start, a 600 is a strong initial CAT Score (the average score on the Official GMAT hovers around 540-550 most years). That having been said, raising a 600 to a 720+ will likely take at least 2-3 months of consistent, guided study - and you'll have to make significant improvements to how you handle BOTH the Quant and Verbal sections. Unfortunately, with your current timeline, you have less than 6 weeks of potential study time. As such, you will likely need to change your score goal or change your timeline/application plans. Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on your goals:

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

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
