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.
Any advice?

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!!
