Congratulations on your score. How did your application process go? Looking forward to hearing from you.
I absolutely loved your "success Mantra"
One of my guiding philosophy in life is that If you do the same thing, you'll get the same result
Probably,this couldn't be more true for the GMAT. If you keep on doing things the same way, you'll get the same results. I had to fundamentally change the way I studied to move beyond the ceiling that I had hit.
Thanks,
Anup

Unfortunately I could apply to only 2 schools this year but didn't make it through any of them...I will be applying to schools this year.I hope I get through one or more of them this year.

For CR, just try to simplify questions into easier language. That worked really for me in high difficulty level questions. Otherwise i'd simply get confused

Hey,

Are there practice tests online? If not where can we get practice tests?

Almost all the practice tests are online. You can go to MGMAT website and purchase them

Your question is quite weird. If you won't get practice tests online, where else would you get them ?

True that. The scoring and the type of questions is bad in Kaplan CD companion

I'd recommend people to buy the additional tests that GMAC has released. GMAT tests are the closest that you can get to the real GMAT. Worth the money

Yeah, they are pretty good but when should one starting using all the GMAC tests ? Towards the end of the prep or keep only 1-2 towards the end ?
