Dear BEATTHEGMAT ,
I can see your post is from 2006. This post will have value for the next GMAT generations.
I now believe I can beat the GMAT. After just a couple of weeks being ininvolved in GMAT preparation and after many years being out of school I was almost there to give up the GMAT. Yesterday I did a first mock test after some preparations in a GMAT class and with Magoosh online system. However the Mock test didn't show any improvement to the diagnostic test. I was thinking today all day, maybe GMAT is not for me. And maybe I have to find other ways to develop my career. And than while searching about how people in the world are preparing I was linked to your post. And I read it complete. And I want to say THANK you. I now will recover from the latest frustrations and will start new the GMAT preparations. Your tips and advises absolutely impressive and I hope you acknowledge what you have done for many students with your blog post... Thank you very much and now it's up to me to beat the GMAT.

Certainty I will review more of the blog posts.

Congratulations for the result..!!

Here is the thing, i started my preparation on 26th Jan, 2017, and i gave the diagnostic test and scored 310(dont remember the quant and verbal score) and i know i have to study very hard to be in 700 club.
after reviewing the solutions, i got to know that i have to focus mainly on quant and i can manage verbal with practice.

And i have both OG 2017 edition and Manhattan GMAT 6th edition and am doing from both of them.

I have some questions so i thought to ask you:

1. if i get a question wrong, shall i go and check the explanation and move to next question or give that question another try to get know where i got worng(but then i think, if have already got that question wrong, i should go and check, what's right...?

2. if i get a question right, shall i move to next question and follows the same or check for the explanation the book have to solve this question(it might be time taking)....?


Please suggest.




Thanks
Ankit
