Hello, welcome to gmatclub :-D

The new posts link on the top-right corner will show you every post that has recent activities.

In each post, there is a timer on top of that post. You could use it for time management. The ideal time for each question is no longer than 2 mins :-D

In each post, there are some tags so members could realize the difficulty level of that question and the source of it.

Also, contributing to forum will receive kudos or points.

I just reveal you a little information about some feature functions on GmatClub. Just pay for time with forum and I'm sure that you will find more interesting things on this forum :-D

Thank you for that information
I went through links given in your reply and wanted to ask this can you shed some light on this sentence
"Kudos inflation and cheating is punished by banning"

I have given multiple kudos to different posts of different people You can see from my profile
Going through this site i found there are people here who gave less kudos then amount of kudos i gave in whole day so will I be banned for doing that?
Also what constitutes as "cheating" and "inflation" what are guidelines and other stuff

Hi shwetachauhan ,

I could see you have given very large number of Kudos few minutes after joining Gmatclub.

Ideally, it will not be a problem but yes you will be under our supervision to see whether you are dealing with any kind of cheating.

So, its better to use everything wisely to avoid getting banned.

P.S: When you started doing so, I was the first one who pointed that out but didn't say anything as I have not found anything suspicious yet. But I may keep an eye on you. ;)

Hi Pooja,

Since it sounds like you're just beginning your studies, then it would be a good idea to take a FULL-LENGTH practice CAT Test; you can download 2 for free from www.mba.com (and they come with some additional practice materials). If you want to do a little studying first, so that you can familiarize yourself with the basic content and question types, then that's okay - but you shouldn't wait too long to take that initial CAT. That score will give us a good sense of your natural strengths and weaknesses and will help provide a basis for comparison as you continue to study. A FULL CAT takes about 4 hours to complete, so make sure that you've set aside enough time to take it in one sitting. Once you have those scores, you should report back here and we can come up with a study plan. As an aside, many Test Takers spend 3 months (or more) of consistent study time before they hit their 'peak' scores, so - depending on your score goal - it's possible that you will need more study time than you have allotted.

I'd like to know a bit more about your timeline and goals:
1) What is your goal score?
2) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
3) When are you planning to apply to Business School?

abhimahna Please keep that i love when guys notice me in a non-creepy way :P
Jokes Apart

I considered kudos as facebook likes so i kept on liking everything where i could say thanks or found the reply or the question useful or witty
That is reason i did this many kudos.
Main thing i wanted to ask is
Doing this many kudos will lead me towards a ban? if yes how many kudos can be given in a day?or should i restrict myself and give kudos to question or good answer and avoid giving to simple "thanks" or replies like that?
What is kudos cheating can you link me to an article or provide an example for that
Also, what is kudos inflation?

Maybe considering kudos facebook likes is the reason why this guy comment for notice :lol:

While facebook is a social network, where people could express their opinions freely, gmatclub is an academic forum, where people are active for some specific purposes. Hence, you shouldn't use kudos as facebook like button.

Actually, considering kudos cheating is sometime based on Administrator's or Moderator's opinions. When they suspect some strange activities, they will follow these traces. In fact, the forum offers many tools for keeping dirty traces, so they will know whether a member cheats or not.

Hence, you should use kudos button only for the post you think that it is useful for you, and for other people. Since kudos could be trade for some benefits, kudos could also be considered a type of currency on this forum. Thus, you should contribute kudos only for useful posts, and as a way back, you will receive kudos if your posts are useful for other members.

You are going for a smart exam like GMAT and you really need to start figuring things on your own.
No one can explain you all the things completely even if they want to help.
So please explore each and every branch or subsection starting from the main forum and especially don't miss out the important topics marked at the beginning of every section by admin or other experts.
All the best and welcome to gmatclub. :)

Hi Pooja,

A 720 is an exceptionally high score for an initial practice CAT, so I'm hoping that you can answer a few additional questions:

1) Had you studied at all before taking this CAT (and if you had, can you describe your studies so far)?
2) Did you take the FULL CAT in one sitting (with the Essay and IR sections)?
3) What were your Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores?

Rich

Hi Pooja,

Based on this score result, you clearly have strong 'critical thinking' skills and you likely have most (if not all) of the necessary 'content knowledge' that you need to score at a high level. However, this score result is likely a bit 'inflated.' Since you skipped the Essay and IR sections, you took a shorter Exam that required less effort and energy from you. In the future, you should plan to take the CAT in a realistic and test-like fashion, including taking the ENTIRE CAT (with the Essay and IR sections), at the same time of day as your Official GMAT, away from your home, in a test-like environment and not do anything unrealistic.

1) What practice materials do you currently have?
2) Going forward, how many hours do you think you can consistently study each week?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

Hi Pooja,

To score 760+, you will need to make some improvements to how you handle the Verbal section (even if you hit Q51 in the Quant), so I suggest that you use the materials that you have and focus on the Verbal section for the next 1-2 weeks. After that, you should take a new FULL-LENGTH CAT (with the Essay and IR sections). Once you have that score, you should report back and we can discuss the result.

In general, we recommend focusing your attention on specific areas - perhaps sentence correction first, for example. But recognize that the actual exam will mix up verbal questions during the verbal part. So during your studies you might do lots of SC questions. But once you finish "studying SC" - you will want to "mix it up" - so practice doing one SC question followed by an RC question, followed by a CR question - because that's how the actual exam will be.

For purposes of improving during your studies, we recommend focusing your attention on specific subsections. To do that, you can study through the OG book, which is categorized by question type. You can also explore new questions in the Practice Pill Platform: http://www.gmatpill.com/gmat-practice-test/
