From 580 to 710 in one month...

by SalamiPBRG » Thu Oct 08, 2009 7:55 am
Hi

Previous score a month ago : 580
I was sick and not really prepared
I read a lot of posts and focused on one strategy
BE PERFECT ON BASIC QUESTIONS
Only when I mastered the basics I attacked the 700-800 questions in less than 2mn30
For me the gmat was as a preparation to a sport competition. Work out all the muscles needed progressively don´t be impatient but disciplined

I will soon write a post on my study material because i want to offer it to a member of BTG who can´t afford it (OG 12th, Q & V Review, All MGMAT books)if possible to someone from Africa (because i think they are underrepresented in the mba - maybe i am wrong..just my feeling)

Question:
- Final GMAT score 710 (92%) Q48 (83%) V39 (87%) AWA 5.5
- French
- French Business school and Master of Finance in Germany
- I speak fluently French/English/German + some arabic
3 Years experience in Big4 in several countries of europe
3 years experience in a industry world leader in finance (70% traveling in Europe and North America)

What are my chances for a good US mba

thanks for your advices
