Hi there, nice to meet you all!

This has been a long time coming, but I have finally added a brief description of my GMAT experience in my blog: https://rubicksjourneys.wordpress.com/2 ... -the-gmat/

I am very happy to say that I achieved a score of 710, without paying for any tuition or premium tuition packages.

There is some very useful free content out there, which I have detailed in my blog entry above.

The key for me was a lot of studying of the areas that I was less strong at.

If anyone has any questions then I will be happy to help wherever I can.

All the best

This is an amazing score Nick, and thanks for sharing your debrief. It really helps and we can take a lot of guidance from this.

Can you share your RC strategy and what resources did you use?

Thanks for all help.

Hi QZ,

Thanks for the compliment :-)

With regards to RC, I would once again advise to use the free Veritas Prep app.

Another back up option is to use the Economist tutor app - they give you a 7 day free trial which I used. If you are really struggling with RC then it may be worth taking this free trial, and making as much use of it on RC as possible over the 7 days. RC is definitely one where it is more the strategy you apply, rather than lots and lots of repetitive practice as seems to be effective with the quant problems.

I'd be interested to hear how you get on!

Thanks for the suggestions Nickrubick. I am having a hard time in RC as most of the GMATers have. Trying to improve. I ll certainly get back to you.
