I am an Indian Civil engineer working in an Indian MNC.I am situated in USA as CSA lead for a big project.My heart has always been in MBA & I am chasing my goal.The first milestone for me right now is GMAT.I am aiming for 720+ as I am targeting at Harvard,Wharton,ISB,Ross,Darden.
I have started preparing for the test & I thought It would be worth to share the experience with others.I will keep you guys posted.As of now I have started with math & verbal practice.

My scores on GMATClub test are as stated below.
M01-84 percentile
M02-87 percentile
M03-52 percentile (took last night at 11:40 pm,I was almost in the zombie state.I wanted to check how well I can perform in high stress level)

I am planning to take the GMAT within next 30 to 45 days with a full determination & preparation.
Stay tuned!!

D-day

The "Dhoni-dhamaka" did not work on the final day.
After the convincing performance on mock tests, I was pretty sure that I will score above 700 but the destiny wanted something else.

I scored 660 (q47v34) on GMAT!!

Hey buddy

Thats ok don't be disheartened......things might not have been in your favor.....nothing else...otherwise you were preparing well....

take some rest....relax your mind....you are in form n touch with your studies.. take a date within like next 20-25 days n give the exam.

you deserve a better score...no way 660....
Best of Luck buddy

Day-1
Did 6 RCs from RC99 (2E,2M,2H) with 85 % accuracy
Also, Completed 20 questions from Aristotle-SC with 80% accuracy

Today's focus will be on CRs & quant.
I always feels like if I stay away from quant for a long (a week) then my math skill become rusty & I need to go through the concepts for one more time..Same happens with Verbal too!!So I am trying to stay in touch of every topic as much as possible!!
That's it for now!I will keep you guys posted!

Day-4
Finished reviewing some hard Probability, combination & ratio-proportion problems (my weakness in quant)!!
Given M04 & scored 77.3 %ile!! (Spent around 6:30 on one ratio-proportion problem, which made me rush at the end of section)

One thing which is bothering me is I want to study (practice) more before I give my GMAT-prep test!No-matter how hard I have studied I still think that I should practice few more questions before I do my 1st test...

Day-5

MGMAT Test#1 Scored 660 (Q 44, V 36)
Improvement is needed in Verbal section for sure, RC was the area of concern where my accuracy was pathetic (60-65 %)
Quant score was also below expected score..
Now that I know my weak spots , it's time to improve them!!

Day-6
Revised Manhattan SC guide & gone through Aristotle-SC grail!!Must say that SC-grail is a good book for the SC preparation!!Specially its question-bank!!One more thing which I feel is anxiety & nervousness account a lot!Everyone has credential to do well but it's your capacity (to bare the pressure) which decides your fate!!

Day-8
I don't know why but I feel relaxed when I approach GMAT questions (Math/Verbal), well whatever be the reason a balanced state of mind is needed for successful GMAT stint!!

I finished around 60 Verbal questions yesterday.While doing SC questions from GMATCLUB questions (posted by users) I found that so many questions are not written correctly or their answers are still under debate, so I have decided that from now onwards I will practice questions from reputed materials only.
I have started doing ETS' paper-based test#14.My accuracy in Verbal was as stated below.
SC-90%
RC-66%
CR-100%

RC is the area of concern right now.But, I can & I will.

Day-9
Finished the questions from paper based GMAT test (number 14).I must say that I found the quant section far too easy.I am quite amazed by the level of difficulty in quant.At the same time the verbal section is awesome.I simply loved it.
There were few challenging verbal questions whose answer I could not figure out.I have posted them on the forum for discussion.
I would like to thank BB & other creators of the forum if any for providing such a platform for knowledge sharing.

'till later,
M.S.Dhoni

The actual GMAT questions will not be so easy. If you like Math, you will enjoy them. They will be tricky, yet do-able!

Day-10
Finished the Verbal section of GMAT paper test# 31.Once again "RC" was the game changer, I got 6 wrong out of 18 RC-questions.
I could see the improvement in my performance in SC, I got 4 wrong out of 22 SCs.The CR has been my strength so far,I got 1 wrong out of 16 CRs.
I guess its time for another full-fledged test.

'till later,
M.S.DHONI

Day-11
I could not figure out when the day started & when it ended.I was slacking the whole day.May be It was a much required break from study.My father says me if you want to cut the wood you need to sharpen your saw.You can't go on if your saw has become blunt due to continues use.
Anyways, I did little bit of productive work today.I downloaded GMAT-CLUB flash cards & gone through the math portion.It was almost same as the math section provided in GMAT-toolkit.I am planning to give a Mock-test tomorrow.Let's see what happens.
