You are where I once was. I had learnt french, salsa, digital marketing, etc etc. In fact, I couldn't believe all that I had done. And I got into a few schools too, but not into my target schools. You know why? Schools don't really tell you why, but this guy who interviewed me at this one top school...

You are not alone my friend. People have gone from 400s to 700s before. Sure, some people are gifted with High IQs, but effort will always trump IQs. Don't believe me?

Congrats on the amazing score. All the best with apps.


Hi, No score is too less. Since you obviously were in a rush. Retake the practice test, without rushing through. And make sure you analyze your performance once you are done with the test. Here is a recent resource that tells you how to analyze the practice tests: http://www.beatthegmat.com/mba/2015...

Simple example, say you put bananas(a) and milk(b) into a mixer(f). You run the mixer for a minute and you get an output= banana shake So, function is something that takes in variables, works on them (just like the mixer) and yields results (banana shake).

I went through what you're describing. You need a timing and quitting strategy. Just search through BTG forum. Expert articles and vids are also available. You need a psychological edge. Although, I'm happy that Jamboree helped you get a jump on your quant, I would advise you to use official questio...

For SC, instead of a guide, you could go through BTG forum and free videos. But, if you're set on a guide, you could try Manhattan's. It will help you focus on specific areas. For quant, official texts- OG and Quant review should be sufficient. For concepts, explanations, etc. BTG forum is still the...

Wow! So much knowledge in one conversation...

Just remember to have fun and rest too. Don't work on a billion problems, burning yourself out in the process. You have time, so try to analyze each and every question you answer.

Good Luck....

IMHO, one way to look at it: Have/has + been -> Used when some action was completed in the past and is still relevant in the present. Or still continues into the present. For example, I have been doing my exercises. In your second sentence comparison, since the pictures have already been attached at...
