Hi,

It's been two years since I have started preparing for the GMAT. I completed the OG (2 versions) and the MGMAT Guides . But still, I scored 480. I attended so many coachings. I am just so depressed. I am thinking of not taking GMAT exam again. Please help.

I completed my graduation from SRCC, Delhi University. I never expected such a low score. I am very much interested in doing an MBA, but I think all my dreams are just shattered. I am feeling so hopeless. I couldn't figure out how to solve problems on the test.

Please help.

Awaiting for your reply.

Thanks in anticipation.

What was your Quant/Verbal split? And do you have your ESR?
Do provide as much detail as possible.

Hi pramek01,

I'm sorry to hear that Test Day did not go as well as hoped. Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) It sounds like you may of studied off-and-on for 2 years. For how long did you CONSISTENTLY study before taking the GMAT?
2) What specific study materials have you used besides the books that you listed?
3) How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for each)?
4) What were the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores on your Official GMAT?

Goals:
5) What is your goal score?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

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

Hi pramek01,

You should first start with solidifying your concepts. Four months should be good enough to achieve a good score. It’s a good thing you have taken your GMATPREP once. You now know your weaknesses and work on them.. You now know your weaknesses and work on them. If you are willing to study dedicatedly for that period, you are sure to achieve your goal. Although MGMAT books are great if you there are some great online GMAT prep companies that can help you with your preparation.

In order to make an informed decision I would highly encourage you to go to their websites and try on their free trial and decide for yourself which one do you like better. You try out free access to EmpowerGMAT, Magoosh and Optimus Prep as they have great reviews on GMATCLUB.

Also for verbal, I would highly encourage you to consider e-gmat verbal online or the e-gmat verbal live course. They are both amazing courses especially designed for non-natives. They offer almost 25% of their courses for free so you can try out their free trial to decide which one you want to go for. Plus the e-gmat Scholaranium which is included in both the courses is one of the best verbal practice tools in the market.

I must add that if you are particularly looking to discover and improve on your weak areas in Quant; a subscription to GMATCLUB tests is the best way to do that. They are indeed phenomenal and will not only pinpoint your weak areas but also help you improve on them. Further taking multiple mocks might help. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have a good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

Further another advantage of taking many mocks is to build up your stamina. Apart from the GMATPREP tests, taking practise tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

I would also encourage you to purchase the latest version of OG and the verbal review for some great additional practice. Here is a link that will help you with your decision.

https://gmatclub.com/forum/best-gmat-ve ... 68383.html

Lastly, you can check out a very interesting article by Mike McGarry from Magoosh detailing a 3 month study plan

https://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/3-month-g ... -students/.

Hope this helps. All the best.
