Hi NDiwan, I'm curious to know more about your practice exam results. Take a few minutes and analyze your performance to identify any specific question types that tripped you up. Once we know more about how you did in both sections, we'll be able to give you more specific points of action. Best, Rich

Hi Azizakaria, I'd definitely reinforce the power of keeping an error log to track your progress. Most students enrolled in GMAT Tutor spend at least 3 months preparing for the exam, and one of the ways we've found to be effective in fostering regular growth is to go through previous practice CATs a...

Hi carey, Although your goals of perfection should be admired to some degree, it's also clear that you won't be sure of where you need to improve to get your target score if you haven't taken a full-length CAT. You'll learn a lot about where you currently stand - and more importantly, where your str...

Hi Dondarrion, The good news here is that you've made a considerable jump from the 480 you reported on a previous attempt. This is something you should be very proud of, and is a good indicator that you are making progress, so keep at it. You'll likely learn even more as you dig into this attempt to...

Hi nitinmenon89, Sorry to hear your GMAT didn't go as you had hoped. However, a 590 is not as bad of a score as you might think. It's also important to remember that students typically vary +/-30 points on any attempt. Given the fact that you've identified a few weaknesses in your test-taking abilit...

Hi Azizakaria, I'd also suggest that you go through your practice exam again and make a log of the question types you answered incorrectly most frequently. You'll also be able to see any timing issues you might have had that kept you from finishing sections at times. While it sounds like you'll need...

Hi Andre4, Have you had the chance to take a full-length practice exam? If not, I'd suggest diving right in. Don't worry too much about your score. This baseline score will give you an even clearer idea of your strengths and weaknesses, which will allow you to hone your study plan to tackle your wea...

Hi Anjali07, Once you've taken your full-length practice exam, take advantage of the free trials offered by most online resources (in addition to any books you find helpful). While one program might work for some students, use the trials to determine what works best for you. To help you get started,...

Hi vedanth,

Boosting your score from 590 to 700 in 30 days will be difficult. With that in mind, I'm curious about the following:

1) When are you hoping to apply for business school?
2) What are some of your specific weak areas in Quant?
3) Can you possibly move your test date back?

Best,
Rich

Hi kanchank, Just want to 3rd what everyone here has said - before you can focus on GMAT-specific strategies, it sounds like you'd benefit from focusing on some of the fundamentals for a while. Khan Academy is a great place to start, but it'll be good to know what your original timeline was as well....

Hi schelljo,

Could you also repost your previous practice exam scores? It sounds like you've developed some bad habits in quant that are holding you back, but reviewing your previous scores will help us confirm this and make some additional suggestions.

Best,
Rich
