I didn't know which thread to add to but nonetheless since I have been a regular on this site for the last 20 days I thought I'd start a post. All in all I want to thank all guys for posting questions and solutions techniques. I didn't have a lot of mind space to go through the ebooks you guys recommended but at least for me the posts were like lectures in themselves.

Kudos to all my "unpaid "tutors on the site, my score wouldn't be possible without your expertise in the matter!!

Hello Chris,

Exam day jitters are bound to be a part and parcel. Even I had those, but in the last 20 days I changed how I have approached problems. The only strategy that put me to rest was that I had changed my method from trying to solve them and picking up the pen to giving each problem a minute where I could understand what was being asked. They are all logic driven to some extent and most of the work that goes into the problem is how you perceive it . If it comes to you in a minute you can solve it in less than 30 secs. If ever I hit the 2 minute barrier, I guessed and moved on. But that in fact is very rare because apart from the language of the problem the work that goes into it is very little.

You seem to be nailing the verbal section and anything over the 47 raw score will take you over 700. So focus on getting the first 15 questions proper(even if you need like 3 mins) and on the later ones stick to the 2 minute strategy. DON'T JUST SOLVE LOOK FOR LOGIC!!!!

I do not have a detailed strategy as such for math, pretty much just what I mentioned in the thread.

For the verbal bit, and given the constraints I had for time, I divided my time evenly between RC CR and SC. I referred OG 15 material for concepts and then pretty much used google for practice questions. A big chunk of my problems came from the GMAT club discussion threads. Again I wasn't really looking to perfect all 3 categories. CR and RC were my strong suits and SC, because it has a lot of rules and stuff proved challenging . I practiced the basic errors outlined and let that be.

If someone is telling you to read as much as possible to improve on RC's DON'T do it . You can't really get through any questions reading random stuff from newspapers. Its about an understanding for both RC and CR and I suggest you only solve questions that are considered GMAT material. I personally considered all answer choices for RC and CR and figured out how 4 of them were wrong. For the CR don't overthink they are looking for the answers that follow immediate logic . Killing yourself with detailed thought is something I will not advice. I will stress that I am not an expert since my preparation was limited due to limited time on my hands but an 80% accuracy overall in verbal section should push you >=37 and the advice on math shall take you >=49.

And yes the most important advice : BUY ALL GMAT OFFICIAL TESTS i.e. no 3,4,5 & 6

Congratulations!!

Totally agree, about giving at least a minute to each question in Quant. If you get the logic behind the question, you can solve it in 30 secs or less.

All the best for your applications.


Cheers,
GyM

Yes , I advice you buy the official tests 3,4,5&6 . In all fairness , they should reflect your current ability within the ~ 30 range.

Good luck
