Was this a mock test or the GMAT exam or the first diagnostic test before you start with your GMAT preparation? Please give more details.

Are you still looking to improve? At Q22, I suggest you begin with basic 10th-grade level math. Don't even think about the GMAT yet. GMAT tests fundamentals heavily and will destroy you if you're not up to scratch. If you're really passionate about doing an MBA, then it's going to be a long road to improvement but you will be able to stick with it. Begin by revising school-level Math and English. Khan Academy is a great, free resource for this. Please don't rush this part; take your time with it and build a solid foundation. Then, I suggest you drop a few $$ and enroll in an online tutoring program. Unstructured self-study helps those who already have a great grasp on the concepts. I suggest you save time and take no such risk. The $$ you spend will sting in the short term but will save you money on GMAT retakes. GMATClub has some fantastic offers on courses, and each course has a free trial. I personally used e-GMAT and thought it was worth it; would highly recommend. This is a 7-8 month long journey you're about to take so mentally prepare yourself. The worst thing you could do is rush it by diving straight into solving OG problems - it just won't work. Take it easy and be patient. Hope this helped.

Hi Sharang thank you for the suggestions. This was the thread I post few months back and yes I have joined an institute and understood the concepts. Now a bit confidant that I can score well. Being from Science background I am are used to stick to Standard operating procedures which I need to unlearn and get into the logical aspects of GMAT.

Hi mbapharma,

Since it's been over 3 months since your original post, I have to assume that you've done some studying since then (and your follow-up posts confirm that). Before I can offer you any additional advice, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied in total?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on EACH of your CATs/mocks (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
4) What is your goal score?
5) When are you planning to retake the GMAT?
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
