Patterns among those who have scored 750+

I am going to start this thread by adding the latest data in it. We already have two old post with the same subject one was posted in 2013 by bb and can be found here. Other was posted in 2015 and can be found here. This post is latest 2019 version. It will help members to assess the change in trend (if any) in use of GMAT Material by GMAT test takers. In this post I will use the data from 2017-2019 so we will be able to assess the change from last 4-5 years. I have also allocated a separate section for some of the outstanding stories having less than 750 but more than 700 score. At the end I have also posted the summary of material used by these test takers. Member will be able to know which material has been used the most. GMAT Club's legend souvik101990 and ChiranjeevSingh are also in this list.

How this post can help members?

  • Members can get inspired by these outstanding stories of hard work.
  • Can get an idea to use which material and how to use that material for effective learning.
  • Can learn different tips and tricks for GMAT Prep.
  • Can assess how the use of material has been changed (or not).

No doubt, SajjadAhmad has done a great work, but i see an inherent flaw in his approach. It assumes that gmatclub is the universe of the test takers.

IMO he needs to add more sources outside of gmatclub to be more accurate. Only considering gmatclub reviews favours the most reviewed even if they have the same success rate within them.

Again undoubtedly SajjadAhmad has done a superb work. I wish if someone could build on top of it.

While your point is valid and well taken, here's another perspective.

Right now GMAT Club is the biggest GMAT site with the most active test takers. More importantly, users are willing to share details of their backgrounds, test scores, prep courses used, applications, results.

That makes it possible to gather and analyze the data and come up with projects and initiatives such as this one (kudos to SajjadAhmad for the painstaking effort!) that would be impractical on most other sites.

It would be very tough to collate samples from the bigger universe of data, right?

GMAC may have the superset of test takers. And while they come out with a lot of helpful reports (like the geographic trends), they don't gather the kind of information that's directly relevant to test takers like GC does.

Which is probably why reputed sites like Poets & Quants publish analytical articles based on data from GC.

Disclosure: My company is not into test prep.

Good to read your sensible remarks and that all make sense, going beyond GMAT Club is almost impossible and if it is possible it doesn't make any sense. No one can guarantee that the data collected out side of GC is representative and authentic, we have verified reviews and this is the real place for GMATers and MBA candidates so even if someone writing Thesis on GMAT prep resources cannot ignore GMAT Club at all, GC is a place you must take seriously if you are talking about GMAT and MBA Program.
