Hello,

I gave 1st test today! I scored 590 (Q45 V27). How to prepare further?
I think I've concentration issue. Correct or incorrect answers are in chunks. How to improve on that issue?
Also I struggle with time. Are there any pacing techniques ?

Also, is the test completely adaptive ? In my verbal section, the weightage of question was not increasing even after answering multiple questions correct.
Can someone please take a look?

One small suggestion, can there be one more report in the review section, which distributes each and every question according to question type?
This will help immensely to maintain error logs.
800Score has those graphs, maybe your development team can take a look for reference

I just checked your test performance. Everything seems to be in order. If you get a few questions of a certain level correct, you are given questions of a higher level. If you answer those incorrectly, you come back to your original level. That's what I see is happening in your case.

I see errors across the board though more in SC and RC. Pay special attention to both these question types.
Check out the SC video: http://www.veritasprep.com/gmat/
and practice RC passages from the book.
If your comfort in the section goes up, your speed will also go up. Focus on your basics right now. Worry about speed only after you have sorted them out.

Dear Karishma,

I really want to thank you and appreciate your simple yet detailed explanations that have been extremely helpful in allowing me to get a grip on my Quant weaknesses.
I was initially struggling with Mixture problems,but today after going through the content shared by you and practicing the questions,I get no question wrong in Mixture problems and I am able to solve in less than 1 minute.
Likewise reading and practising against the theory shared on overlapping sets,I am feeling much more confident about such problems.

Sometimes it is about explaining in the most simple manner that can open that block in mind.

KUDOS to a trainer like you.I am sure that had I taken quant tutoring from you I would have definitely scored a 48/49 with ease.

Just wanted to thank you.
