Thanks for comment Santy! Youre really kind!

1. I could do only 3 gmatpreps and nothing else. my scores on gmatprep1, 2 and 3 were - 41, 42, 45 respectively. Once you get beyond 44, you will see the following types quite often:
a. SC: long 3-4 line sentence entirely underlined
b. CR: guess similar argument types questions. thus you need to deconstruct 6 different arguments effectively.
c. RC: really long and complicated passages from sociology/science
d. bold face questions

2. what is your weak area? is it SC, CR or RC? Mine was SC so I gave a serious read to Manhattan SC guide and watched gmatprepnow/magoosh SC videos and prepared my notes based on what was new to me or what I wanted to reinforce. I would suggest you to find your weak area and accordingly work on it.

Hope thats helpful. Pls let me know if you need anything else. Good luck and let me know your score

Awesome score MensaNumber! Congratulations!!
V46 for a non-native is simply amazing.. never saw or heard about it anywhere before.
I studied in marathi medium school too, so your debrief is immensely inspirational.

Would love to have your feedback on couple of questions regarding verbal:

1) What were your verbal scores during mock tests (GMATPrep? ManhattanGmat?)
I am interested in knowing how did you improve your verbal, for example from V40 to V46? If you could elaborate on any insights you might have noticed in the type of questions you get at different difficulty levels and any strategies you followed?

2) What according to you is the difference in the skills required/tested at V40 & V46? I am currently stuck at around V38/40 and would like to raise it as high as possible.

Thanks and congrats once again!

Thanks Siva! I took only GMATprep 1, 2 and 3. So don't know how good are other tests. But I would say to build your stamina, you should definitely take 3-4 full length tests. I have disliking for gmat questions that are not from GMAC. IMHO, they are a waste of time. So I would say definitely do 4 gmatprep tests. But more importantly analyze each test thoroughly for errors and timing strategies. Hope it was helpful. Don't hesitate to write back if you have any more doubts. Good luck!

Hi
Great journey to that awesome score especially in verbal...very inspiring....i just have two queries:
1. What is the importance of mock tests in GMAt prep...esp verbal?
2. Which mock series apart from GMAT prep tests do you think were really close to the original test?

Regards
Siva

Thanks SkandanNinja19!
I must confess DS is pain in #\$@%.
Manhattan's Advance Quant strategies is a good book. Please take a look if you have not already read it. It is a thick book so read only theory and skip all end of chapter problems. Let me know if it was helpful. Good luck!

Wov,
that's really inspiring. I am going through OG and feel that SC questions are getting tougher and tougher as I progress. I was very disappointed to see more questions are going wrong while I go through these 100+ SC questions given in OG. is it that difficulty level increases in these questions in an ascending way?

Thanks

Thanks GMatAspireCA! I am glad you found this debrief inspiring. Yes - SC questions will get tougher tougher as you go further in OG. In fact, some of the hard questions in Question Pack and Gprep1&2 data base used to make my head spin too. But the good part is if you can keep going and take your time to understand these question, you will exponentially improve your SC skills. After you finish doing all questions from OG13, Qpack, and Gprep Databse, you will realize that there only a few grammar rules that GMAT loves to test.

Hope that helps. Let me know how things go. Good Luck!

In this part NoHalfMeasures > Exercise: There is tremendous body of evidence suggesting benefits of exercise on brain function. I almost never missed daily 30 min brisk walks. I used to listen to wordlist or math tables during those 30 min.
Could you please recommend me a good wordlist and math tables?
Thank you!
