Hi

To give a little background- I have given 2 attempts in gmat. My first attempt was in 2 years ago and i had scored a 540. I was well prepared and my mocks reflected better scores. However, i decided to buck up and diligently prepared for another attempt. After 6 months of thorough preparation and with mock scores in the range of 620 to 710, i decided to attempt again. To my disappointment, i only scored a 550, which was nowehere near my mock scores. Currently, I am at the helm of my career and i want to pursue an MBA. I had almost given up but am persuaded to make a another attempt.

I have started my preps since a week. I have brushed up my basics and given 2 diagnostic tests. Princeton review- 660 and Kaplan - 670. Apart from OG 18 and veritas tests i do not have anyother study material. My target score is 750, please throw suggestions on how i can further strategise my prep and what study materials will be useful?

Hello SurabhiKawad1,

GMAT is not as easy as we assume. GMAT math is logic, and GMAT verbal is a real test of English as a language. A score of 550 is a bit shaky and far indeed from the target score of 750. So, it is all about raising 200 pointers. We will like to recommend certain key points which will be helpful.

Various possible combinations that you should keep in mind to achieve a score of 750 or above are: V39/Q50, V41/Q49, V44/Q48 are some possible combinations.

There is a disparity between your mock scores and official scores. We have experienced this issue with other aspirants as well. The GMAT test is cracked by studying reliable materials, by learning alternative approaches and shortcuts and by learning time-management skills. Also, test hall pressure is undefinable, and hence, we recommend aspirants take as many as mock tests to feel that pressure.

In short, the plan that we will suggest you is:

Basic concept building --- Try 600 level question--- Take a mock test ---- Learn alternative methods and shortcuts ---- Try 700+ level question --- Take mock tests.

First, you should focus on building a strong conceptual ground for verbal and quant.

For Verbal you may refer OG or Aristotle grail. For RC and CR, you will get standard questions on this forum.
For Quant, you may take up our 5-hour lesson for a refresher. It is available on https://www.mathrevolution.com.

You may also check our free trial lessons and free videos. Also, take a diagnostic test and check your performance after preparing your concepts.

Once you do that, take the Q 51 shortcut module to learn quick approaches to save you the time in the official exam.

For verbal, try solving 700+ level questions. And then, take as many as mock tests to track your performance.

Let us know if you have further questions.

You can reach us at info@mathrevolution.com

Success is within your reach.

Good luck!
