Re: GMAT. Who's your daddy?? 680

So I don't have 730 or 760 like some great scorers here, but I'm so happy with my 680 :-) This is because I improved a lot from my first test (550) and I reached my target of 650. I decided to write for two reasons. First I want to thank the regular contributors and everybody for sharing your exper...

Re: !!

I'm surprised that you scored that high with 6 unanswered questions. You must have been on a roll! Yes GMATPrep is indeed accurate. In 2 weeks, and given how your test went, I would suggest that you work on your pacing. Take the other GMATPrep, go over the solutions to figure out how you did and ho...

Re: GMAT 500 Doldrums: Help Please

Dear GMAT Beaters, I have been studying for the GMAT in earnest since November 2008 and have taken the test twice. Scores below 1: 410 (AWA 5.5, Q19, V27) Jan 2009 2: 520 (AWA 4.5, Q37, V24) Mar 2009 I'm also a fan of GMATFix. I think though that your quant has already improved so much that maybe y...

Sjaltenb, Don't bother taking Barron's tests. With a week to go, take GMATPrep tests to finetune your pacing and go over the solutions either from GMATFix solutions engine ( http://gmatfix.com/sols/gmatprep_demo.php if you need quant solutions right away) or by posting your Qs here and someone will...

Re: Not giving up, 480 --> 700+, advices please?

480 to 750 is very unlikely as you've pointed out. Please let us know if you find GMATFix OG Companion as useful as I did. Even with the best materials and dedication, it's such a big jump to cross in 39 days. I really really hope you can reach 700+ Why are you not considering getting a tutor? If i...

Re: stuck in a rut :-(

Daniel Chu, Below is a repost of my approach to verbal that you might find useful. Z_I's advice above is also good. For my verbal prep I used ManhattanGMAT Sentence Correction guide, The Official Guide, and gmatfix verbal flashcards. 1) If you don't already have it, consider getting the ManhattanGM...
