I took my GMAT last month and scored 660 [ Q-43. V-38 ]. I was totally knocked out by my scores, took me 3 days to recover. I had quiet a few questions on probability that I could not solve, in fact the second question of my test was probability. That was one of the reasons for my bad scores. Another was that I got my passport in hand like minutes before the test was to commence. Took me sometime to gain focus.In India the passport is the only form of accepted ID. I had sent the passport for stamping my visa at the US consulate and there was a delay in dispatching the passport from the consulate.

Anyways, am all re energized for another take at the test. Please help me with these

1. wondering if there are any websites that have downloadalbe tests, would love it if its free 8-)

2. Have a poor AWA score [ 3.5 :( ], anypointers to improve here.

I am so glad that i found this site, have found some invaluble tips so far.

Since your verbal score is 38 - i guess its not going to be difficult for you to improve upon. Quants is the section you need to improve and if you get a 50 then you reach 720 level.

About AWA - its good to make some templates. You can refer to templates of Princeton or Arco's essay book.

Finally - There are many yahoo groups and I wont name any places where you can download material but there are many chinese and korean a bit of googling and you would land up with the material you want.

For verbal - i found the Official guide to be the best. Just repeat the questions - internalizing the should be able to distinguish why the wrong answer is wrong and the right one is right. If you can follow the same for almost all the OG questions then i am sure you would breeze through.
Try not to make silly mistakes in quants...practice harder - try getting different kinds of material. Take the challenge test offered on this site.

All the best.

To be or not to be....
