Hello everyone

To get into my school I only need a 560 which isn't hard to get but based on my practice questions I'm atleast a 40th percentile quant student and a 60th + percentile verbal student.

Hi
First of all, I would suggest to appear for a Gmatprep test. You will come to know your current level, then you can prepare accordingly. It is difficult to tell based on the given percentiles. But I would suggest to prepare from the MGMAT guides for Quant and Verbal. They are comprehensive and will help you to score a 650+.

Hi buddy,

could you provide a little more details with regards to the expected timeframe of your studies as well as a glimpse on which materials you have been using so far?

Based on your stated percentiles you should already score somewhere in the high 500s according to the following matrix:

Best regards & all the best for your prep,
Chris

Hey Chris, my exam in Thursday. I've been prepping for the past 3 weeks hard with about a year on and off (mostly off, because work etc etc etc.)
I went to Quantum which wasn't really overly helpful, I did all their verbal questions, and a majority of the math. Next I bought the Official GMAT guides, which were for the most part useless. I finished all the verbal and a majority of the math questions, but had a lot of help from the GMAT Club people with solutions.
So far I feel ready to score a decent score on Verbal but not on Quant. I've only purchased GMAT exams from the gmat site. I've scored 600+ on the paid ones and 540-600 on the free.

If your exam is already tomorrow I don´t want to give you any super detailed tips. that will end up doing more harm than good.

Try to review your weaknesses once more and be confident mate.

All the best!

Hi! How did you conclude that you are atleast a 40th percentile in quant and 60th percentile in Verbal. Have you given any mock? if yes, what was the source?

Secondly - If you are really at the scores mentioned above then you are already at 560. Refer to :-

https://www.mba.com/exams/gmat/after-th ... means#tab3

40th percentile in Quant is Q40 and 60th percentile in Verbal is V31. According to following calculator it translates into 590.

All the best!!
