Hi Django, I noticed in one of your prior posts how you were planning to take the GMAT in 2013. Did you end up taking the Test as planned (and if so, then how did you score?)? As far as scoring a "perfect score" is concerned, that should NOT be your goal. Thankfully, Business Schools don't require ...

You should be taking tests only once you are strong in all the areas My question is how d...

I was wondering what all do i need to maintain in an error log ? and how often should it be reviewed ? think of an error log as your own personal notes..i revise my error log every fortnight and it really helps.. True..An error log is the most helpful...

If I were you, I'd focus the most on Number systems. I think this is the most important area on GMAT Math True. I love number systems..I think this is one area where there are not too many concepts and one can do well even without much preparation. True. Number system is the darling of GMAT primari...

Thanks for sharing your story. I am in a similar boat to the one you were in. I took the GMAT a little less than a month ago and got a dismal 600 but my target score is 720. I have given myself until mid or end August to take the test. I know you already did well on quant but that is actually where...

While my Quant score was a decent 48, it is verbal that let me down terribly with a mere 29, when I was expecting...

Awesome score fred. I liked your prep strategy. Can you please tell me how did you do the questions from SC Grail 3rd edition ? Did you do them sequentially or did you them topicwise ?
