BOOKMARKED
Hi Everybody,
Thank you for your company in my GMAT journey. Its all started with year November 2004, when I prepared and got a low 640 score. I was destroyed by a local coaching class of my town. Then, I took a break of 6 years and started my journey again this year in April.
My test history is in my signature.

My Strengths:
1. Problem solving

My weaknesses:
1. RC
2. Silly mistakes in PS/DS

I will be engaged to you guys till my exam dates. I appreciate your valuable suggestions.

Hi,
I test date after 40 days. I have completed everything except AWA practice. Now I am looking for accuracy and speed.
I need score > =720 which is really a challenge.
Should I practice with different online and paper based tests?
Thanks.

Wow you have a pretty big swing in your verbal scores. Seems like you have improved in verbal if these tests were indeed taken in chronological order. 19 to 36. I think you should find out what your weak areas are. And then concentrate of them one by one. Just a suggestion

Today, I took another test of GMAXonline CAT 2. I think there is some difference in eveluation of MGMAT and GMAXonline. Unfortunately, I had to take phone calls two times, but I can't give any excuse regarding that.
I got 640 ( Q48, V32).
I have to reach the 720+ benchmark.

I want to share my one experience with you all- take a paper based test one day before any mock CAT. You will do better. It may be a causal argument, but it works for me.

Another MGMAT CAT#3 today....
Man, the quant surprised me today. Can anybody tell whether MGMAT CAT#3 quant is too tough?
After quant section, I was sure that my score is in a mess. I know that its not at all a good strategy to think like this. I did verbal very well till half way and then lost the concentration. Though I am better able to concentrate, I can't remove unwanted thoughts completely. How come somebody think what your wife will think about today's score? What grocery you have to purchase after completion of the test?

Anyways....
Can somebody share his experience regarding the toughness of MGMAT CAT#3? Are all tests equally tough?

My exam is in exactly one month. Today, I have got Aristotle SC Grail. I hope it will help me as much as powerscore CR bible has done.

Amid the test preparation, MBA completion is also very challenging.

Last but not the least, AWA...hummmmm......I have thought to do AWA practice in office.

Took the Veritas Free CAT today and result was an effect of festive season in India. My lack of practice was reflected in my poor score.
I need to catch up up in quant and RC.
There is some improvement in SC.
Its only 24 days to go.....I want to cross 720+.....I hope I will be able to help myself.....

Took another MGMAT CAT (#4) today....
I attended e-GMAT seminar on GMAT strategy yesterday.
Yesterday, I learnt few things:
2. Find the gap
3. Fill the gap

I wanted to cross the 700+ level. I wanted to get 50 in Quant and 38-39 in verbal. I found that I do silly mistakes in Quant and fail in tough quant problems. I practiced quant with toughest math problems in GMATCLUB. I improved my quant skill, but it spoiled my time management. I was running short of time in last 10 questions. I was making no mistake in the beginning and CAT started giving me tough questions. And, I was not prepared for this at all.
I was disappointed with my change of strategy. I wanted to abort the test. Then, I thought to take the verbal part to see only verbal score ( I mean I wanted to ignore the quant score after the exam).

But after the exam, I got a score of 690.

Now, I want to know to that how to maintain the time while making no mistake in quant.

Hi gmatpunjabi,
Since two days, I am having back pain. I think that this was the reason why I could not concentrate well in the exam. Yesterday, I was little bit worried that if the back pain persists, how will I prepare and take the exam.
