Hey everybody,

I want to make the GMAT-Exam at February 2015.

Today I tested my Skills in a first GMAT-Text (veritasprep).
My score is only 500 (IR: 5 of 8, Quant: 37 of 60, Verbal: 22 of 60).
To appraise myself:
Is a score of 500 without practicing good?
Quant: 37 of 60, how good/bad is that?
And the Verbal: only 22 of 60, is that really bad?

Target: Score > 700

I know, that my english skills are very bad, that's why I'm now for 3 month in New York for an internship. I've 2 more month to improve my english skills in New York.

About myself: I'm 22 years old, I'm studying Business Informatics and working in a german bank (Controlling and Regulatory Reporting).

My studies will end at September, 2015. After it I want to make a Master in Management at a really good business school to learn more about other cultures and languages.

Hi there,

Improving 200 points is tough but you have nearly a year to do it. Living in the U.S. will certainly help your English. Before you officially start to study for the GMAT, perhaps you should make a big effort to read publications in English; Read newspapers like The New York Times, the Washington Post and The Economist. You'll soon get a better grasp of English grammar concepts.

Good luck!

Regards,

Elizabeth

Hi there,

My plan is to learn the grammar with some grammar pages and reading some articles about banking. Also I'm learning right now with the e-GMAT application.
Starting to learn with the manhattan GMAT full collection do I schedule at the end of August, because of my first target (August 21st TOEIC score ~950).
Also I like to learn the with the math section of GMATclub app for iPhone while I'm sitting in train.
I hope that my target is realistic and reachable for me.

All the best,
Sonny

Looks like your verbal needs some work. I'd recommend focusing on SC first -- since a better understanding of sentence structure and implications -- can help you read CR and RC questions faster and retain more.
