580 practice test to 760 on actual GMAT!

I don't even know where to start. I took the test this morning, and I am feeling a little overwhelmed at having all that GMAT test prep pay off. I don't have the official score yet, just the unofficial GMAT Score Report you get right after the test. I'm still convinced that it's some sort of compute...

Profile evaluation - What GMAT would make me a contender?

I am currently preparing to take the GMAT, and diving into my studies. I took the GMAT previously with preparation, and received a 630. Based on practice test scores, I think I can realistically shoot to get in the high 600s, and hopefully crack the 700 mark. Am I unrealistic in my business school c...

I was afraid to face the music and actually take my first practice test, but I bunkered down tonight. 34 Quant, 36 Verb, 580 Total. I was hoping the 630 score from the actual GMAT last year would be a little closer to my practice score. Really struggled to set up a number of the Quant questions effi...

Where do you study?

Just started my GMAT prep, and I am realizing that I don't have a great place to study! I study later at night - usually after 8 or 9 pm, and the public libraries near me don't stay open much later than that. Back in college, I had a desk and access to libraries or study halls open until midnight. I...

Thank you both! I should have time this weekend to take a practice exam to reassess my current skill level, and I'll share the results as soon as I have them! (but already looking at practice quant questions, I already feel frustrated with myself) My schedule is limiting - I have a very demanding jo...

Strategy to go from 630 to 720?

I took the GMAT last April with limited and sporadic prep, and got a 630 (7 IR/40 Quant/36 Verbal) I did terribly on the AWA portion. While I graduated college in August 2015, I have a degree in the arts. The last time I took any sort of math class was about 10 years ago. Math was easy for me in hig...
