I appeared for GMAT for the first time in October, 2016 and scored 550.
Too much procrastination and lack of a proper strategy lead to this dreadful score.
Now, I plan to reappear on 23rd July (in 6 weeks).
Yesterday, after 2 weeks of preparation, I attempted the GMAT Prep Test 2 and scored a 600 (Q 44 V 28)
After updating the error log, I observed the following things :
Quant Section : Need to devote time to Combination, Probability, Geometry, DS Equation Questions.
I was stuck in 2 back to back Combinations questions and hence, ran out of time. Guessed the last 6 questions (Only 1 out of the 6 was correct)
With some more efforts, I can certainly pull up the Quant score to 48-50!
Verbal Section : Even though I am an avid reader, I zoned out reading the RCs. Guessed all RC questions after skimming through the passage. Almost all of them were wrong!
90% accuracy in SC questions and 60% in CR.
Study material used:
- 1. Completed the OG 2016 earlier. Now attempting the tough questions using GMAT Wiley.
2. Kaplan CD
3. GMAT Club question bank (Bunuel for Quant, Ron SC Tips, Idioms list and, several other for Verbal)
4. Princeton Review books for theory
5. MGMAT CAT and Practice Questions, still untouched.
I sincerely feel that my biggest issue is lack of concentration (fidgety mind) :roll:
It would be very helpful if anyone can suggest me few RC strategies (how to make it less painful) and a definite road map which leads to the 700+ milestone!
Thank you in advance.
