My first GMAT try - 650 : A little disappointing [#permalink]
15 Dec 2005, 18:56
I took the GMAT today and got tripped in the Quants section. Here are my scores:
Quant: 39 - 57 percentile
Verbal: 41 - 91 percentile
I have been working on the quants for sometime now and seem to go into tail spin when I cant solve a problem within time. A part of me thinks that a greater amount of practice would help me through, but another part suspects that I may have reached my limit.
Your opinions and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Also, if you have any suggestions on alternate ways of preparing for the quants, it would be great.
Thanks for very much for your encouragement comeongmat. For verbal, I just went through the OG questions and also went through a document posted on this website that provides some basic rules for sentence correction, reading comp and sentence correction - I have attached the document with this posting. I hope this helps.
For my quants - I will do as you have suggested. Hopefully, I will be able to overcome the "third question trap".
Live with OG for the next couple months...then you shall do ok on math.
The key to do well on math is to do many challenging questions.
I think integers, probablity and statistics problems are very very important.... these concepts appear frequetly on Q section .
if you do well on these questions, you will move into a difficult bin of questions and score above 48 or so..
i will say again...
integers, probablity , in equality and statistics are very important...
try to master concepts and rules......of course, watch out for ets traps...
that's how i score 49 on a real thing........
always look for shortcut and avoid ets traps...
