690 43/41

by thunderdogg » Thu Dec 06, 2007 1:50 pm
So i studied for about a month and took the test this afternoon. I feel like this is an adequate score. I was very shocked at my math 43, was by far the lowest i received on any test yet, so i was pretty disappointed in that, but my verbal score was actually the best i've ever got. I was shooting for 40/40 hoping that would give me a 700, i guess i was a little off. I think i somehow fell behind with the timing in the math section, the questions weren't difficult, just time consuming. LOADS of averaging and overlapping data sets questions. I think i probably guessed on 3 or 4 questions toward the end that would've taken too long to work out.

i feel like a 690 is probably okay, so i don't intend to take it again.

this website was pretty useful, good luck to everybody else!

the breakdown was

quant - 43 - 70th percentile.. (yikes i know!)
verbal - 41 - (93rd percentile)

Total - 690 90th percentile.
