My score-690 [#permalink]

Hi everybody. Just came from the test center-math 48(87%), verbal 38(85%) overall 690(92%) . I'm surprised that with these individual scores I didn't get more than 690. This is not to say that I'm not satisfied with my score but it seems that ETS values math score more than verbal. My friend's individual scores were 51-math and 33-verbal and he got 690 as well even though 3 points difference in our math scores was more than compensated by 5 points difference in verbal. Now about the test.

Math was quite tricky. Lots of DS questions several with statistics and probability. A couple of questions from coordinate geometry. Many questions with long word problems. The level of difficulty rises very quickly and one can expect difficult questions from the very begining. I got bogged down on one question and am sure that all of the answer choices were wrong. That blody question cost me valuable 7-8 minutes. Sometimes difficult questions were followed by very easy ones and I used to panick, but these easy questions most probably were experimental.

Verbal was not that hard. Quite easy SC and CR questions. One so called bold face CR but easy as well. I have to confess though that RC was not easy and I got two passages in succession. Overall, verbal was easier than I expected. At the end of the test I thought my verbal would not be more than 34.

BB and brstorewala thank you and everybody contributing to this forum.
I was out of the town and I'm sorry for the late post.
Brstorewala, you really do not have to be scared with math section. I'm not that expert in math as you say and besides ETS seems to test time-management more than math skills. So work on shortcuts and be very attentive not to fall in ETS traps.
BB thank you for running this forum and wish you a good vacation in Ukraine. I'll continue visiting this site and you wont get rid of me so easy.

Lasha,
Congratulations on your score.
Could you please tell if you found the Verbal comparable with the POWERPREP/ Official Guide. I am giving the test with the next few days.
Just a little bit tensed. I could say im comfortable with material in OG.
got 700 and 750 on the POWERPREP.
Any suggestions/tips?
Thanks

KSS verbal was very much like powerprep. If, as you say, you are comfortable with OG and scored 700 and 750 in PP, you really do not have to warry about the test. Just try to relax and do the test as if it were a practice. I know it is hard than said but try at least to concetrate on the questions at hand and do not worry about the score. Most importantly, do not get bogged down on any question too long. Goog luck on the test.

Just how much Probability did you get. how much did ou have to know. Binomial , hypergeometric or simple combinations and prob ?

I hate Stats and don't want to overprepare unless I have to.

Aren't you afraid that whatever others had on GMAT, you'll encounter exactly those questions which you won't feel overprepared for?

P.S. I had the only permutation/probability problem back in February. And I had to guess as I found myself completely unaware of the approach to the solution. Luckily I've chosen the correct answer. But the probability was 1/5 )

Lasha, Thanks a lot for the words of confidence. I will try to keep calm during the exam and give it my best shot.
