I gave the GMAT yesterday and scored 630 (Q50 V25) , I could not believe it when I saw the score , Verbal has been my nemesis for every competitive exam that I have ever written (GRE , CAT etc). Verbal in GMAT was level higher than what I have usually seen in my practice tests, there were very few straight questions may 5-8 , other than that I only saw questions which required lot of thinking. Here is the rough split of the questions which I can remember :
4RC's - 4 questions (3) and 3 questions (1)
CRs - although I did not get any bold face questions but I got at least 2-3 para completions. The other CR questions were very difficult to comprehend and required at least 2 readings.
SC - whosover has told me that its all about logic in SC has been partially right. I saw at least 3-4 questions which I could not comprehend at all.
I do remember that I skipped at least 2-3 questions , but I solved i think some 4-5 really nasty questions at a stretch reinforcing the fact that the number of questions you get correct does not decide your score. My suggestion to everyone who wants to score high in Quant is take GMATClub tests
, I owe these guys a big time unfortunately GMATClub doesnt have something substantial for Verbal. But GMATclub quant tests are simply the best tests for Quant. I did around 15 of these and used to get around 7-8 wrong in each test. Also for quant if you see you are being stretched in the area you are not comfortable with please leave the question. I had decided before the exam that if I get a probability question and If I am not able to solve it in 2-3 mins i'll leave the question.
Guys whiplash , bb and fluke please help me out so that I can at least reach a score of 710-720. I would need to invest majority of my time solving verbal difficult level questions and get the concepts right straight away. Do you guys suggest taking some crash course in Verbal and If you are aware of any such course please let me know. I am not in position to put my debrief for Verbal as I have not scored very well in that section , however here are my test scores:
MGMAT1 640(Q45 V29)
MGMAT2 650(V46 V29)
GMATprep1 650(Q48 V
MGMAT3 680(Q47 V34)
MGMAT4 710 (Q47 V37)
GMATprep2 710 (Q50 v35)
