I have started with Manhattan Verbal since 2 days.
Its really tiring to read RC passage and answer and SC am really not sure yet what is going wrong!! Sad
First CAT breakup (SC-40%, CR-71%, RC 42%)- all 3 section seems not good..

Hi Rshmie,

A 760 score is a performance that requires a complete understanding of the exam, a strong sense of organization and thoroughness, and no silly mistakes. It's an elite score that most Test Takers who study with just books are unable to achieve.

With a Test Date in early September, you have approximately 8 weeks to study. If you're serious about this task, then I suggest that you find a GMAT Course that fits your personality and budget - and do so as soon as possible. Most Test Takers need 3+ months to achieve their goals, so your shorter timeline will make this task more challenging.

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

Hi Rshmie,

A 530 is decent for your first practice CAT (the average score on the Official GMAT is about 550). As you continue to practice, you should be sure to take the ENTIRE CAT every time, so that you can train yourself to handle the endurance and pacing challenges that will be a part of Test Day.

You mentioned in your prior post that you wanted to get on track in one month. When is your Official GMAT scheduled for? And what is your goal score?

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