Hello Rich

Thanks for your input. I will follow what you said next time I take the sample test and will report back. Also, I have checked out a few courses since I have started studying and as per your previous advice I will definitely get a course soon.

Thanks

Hi Rich

I have a quick update. I sat a full length Manhattan sample test today under strict exam conditions and not at home. Below are the results.

I still am a fair bit away from my target score of ~650 Sad Current Status of my studies is that I am on Manhattan Book #3 (and still working on refreshing my Quant basics).

Thanks

Hi melguy,

Now that we have a more realistic score to use as a basis for comparison, you can start to nit-pick your performance. After taking each CAT, you should plan to do a full review - with the goal of trying to define WHY you got questions wrong. The first big question to always ask is "how many of these questions did I get wrong that I COULD actually have gotten correct?"

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
