Hi Team,

I plan to write my GMAT in december. Yesterday I appeared in my first diagnostic test. I scored a paltry 600 .
Following is the breakdown of my score.

Quant : 48 Percentile : 80
Verbal : 25 Percentile : 35
Integrated Reasoning : 7 Percentile : Not Available

Also I could not complete my test. Could not answer one quant question, 2 verbal questions and 1 Integrated Reasoning question. One of the topics in the forum is about how heavy the penalty is if you are not able to complete the test.

I would like your help in planning my studies. When should I give my second diagnostic test ? And any more test series that I should join. I have already bought Manhattan's Sentence correction guide. What should I do about the CR and the RC section ?

Also is it possible to hit the 750+ range with this score ?

Regards,

I conduct a 2 hr. strategy session where we cover these details and answer such questions. The next session is on Saturday, September 15. I recommend that you attend the same. Here is a link below:

Check out a blog post I wrote a couple of weeks ago. It will answer some of your questions.

If you run out of time, you should guess on the remaining questions. The penalty for un-attempted questions is quite high.

As for CR and RC, you should go through a book for each question type. Get acquainted with strategies, questions types, tip and tricks and pitfalls. For a 750+, you will need to get 50/51 in Quant and at least 40/41 in Verbal.
