This is my first GMAT test. I have taken the Diagnostic Test before actually starting Preparation for GMAT to know where I stand.

Correct Wrong
Quant 21 16
Verbal 16 25

Score
37 41

GMAT Score : 440

I know this is pretty low score.

1. I need to pay more attention to verbal part of test
2. Need to bring down wrong answers in Quant
[b]

I have around 8 years of industry experience.

Thanks & Regards,
PP

hi PP,
its good that after 8 yrs in industry, you still have energy to give GMAt and for that matter 440 is good in first test.

The scores reflect, you need to focus on both the areas equally. So, take some time off in sharpening your both the skills.

well then, bye

Hi pp2020,
I think you need to go back and see what were your mistakes and identify the pain areas. Find out your weaknesses, for example in Verbal what part was the most difficult, why did you go wrong in a particular question.
This analysis will only make you understand how you can design your study plan and use it more effectively.
There are plenty of resources on this forum where you can start. There are some sample study plans and many people have shared their study plans / advice on the sticky notes posts.
Good luck!

To do well, you're going to need to master both the fundamentals (math skills, grammar rules, etc.) and test-taking skills. If you practice diligently, it can definitely be done. (btw when I took a diagnostic cold, without any prep at all, my score was abysmal too!).

I would suggest starting with an overall review guide that explains the GMAT and how it works (there are a lot of built-in traps). "Cracking the GMAT" from the Princeton Review has the best review and tips, IMHO. It also has great practice tests that have answer explanations, and that are closer to the real thing than any other simulated tests out there. Be sure to analyze both your right and wrong answers so you see the patterns. Their tests also break down your score by question type, so you can see your weak and strong areas.

If you are still struggling with verbal after you get more into your prep regimen, then I would get a separate verbal workbook. Again I would suggest PR because their verbal prep is particularly good.

Hope this helps get you started...and definitely use the error logs as described on this site!

Dont feel bad, I scored a 430 on the actual exam after a month of study, I guess the anxiety got the best of me. Too much stress, too short time, not enough FULL lengh exam challanges.

Now that the hype is over, I can study at my leisure then take the gmat again. Im wont give up until im DEAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!
