Scored 650

Post Sun Jun 03, 2007 10:56 am
Hi all,

I wrote the exam yesterday and I scored 650 ( 49Q,29V). I was a bit disappointed with my verbal score. I guess the two months of preparation I put in, weren't enough.

For the exam , I used OG 11 and Kaplan 800. They did help me improve my scores from the ones I got in GMAT prep. My GMATprep scores were 1) 570 2) 600. I am planning to write the exam again since I am confident that I can improve my verbal scores.

I would like to thank the site and contributors,for the suggestions and discussion. They guided me throughout my preparation. This forum is one of the best as it is very organized and the materials are quite helpful.( Though I could not get time to go through all of them).

THANKS A TON

I too scored a 650 and felt terrible afterwards. I'm going to try again since I was able to see scores like 720 during the Ultimate Practice Exam in actual testing conditions.

It's another 2 months out of my life. I am hoping it will be worth it.

Good luck to you. Hope you do well.

Thanks ! Scoring a 650 is kind of frustrating but it just shows that we can make it to the 700s.

With my work load getting a bit crazy , it will be a while when I go for a second attempt at GMAT.


All the best to you ..we are near to our goals ..just need to focus and we
are there .

I suggest you download the stuff that is available for download on this forum. I hope it will help you make the next leap in terms of verbal scores. Some of the strategies that people have come up with are quite awesome.
