Busted on the GMAT

Post Fri Sep 29, 2006 12:53 am
GMAT Score : 680
Q - 48
V - 35

Planning to retake the test probably in 5-6 weeks time.
Had gone through all the material available but the focus is that i did not concentrate hard on the Q part. Got some relatively tough questions and was guessing all the questions towards the end.
By the time i started my verbal, i was not ready to think anymore. The concentration was rock bottom and all i wanted to do was to get out of the test center. Not a good strategy though...

Did ok on the practice tests...
PP-- 700(Day zero) , 730 a month before
K -- 580,600,610,630
Princeton -- 720, 680

Any thoughts on preparing for the xm again....

Your Quant performance was awesome! If you normally do well on verbal, I'd give more time to structured full length tests so you don't fizzle out on the second half.

If verbal is not your thing, then you have some work to do, but I think that is still just a matter of practice. More than anything else you need to get in the mode of sitting still for 3.5 hours.
