I understand that, but my question is what if I score low and then the schools will have my low score on the file. If I score high then I can always send the scores later paying 17 bucks. Basically does it matter to the school that there is a low score in TOEFL and also does TOEFL reports all your s...

Hey, quick question, I am not sure whether I should select my schools before the test or after the test. I am scoring 80%+ in reading and listening but not sure of speaking and writing. I took GMAT twice and got 5.5 and 5 in AWA. The reason is if I do not do well and send the scores to the school th...

Thanks guys, I agree, that we havs about 20 mins per RC but in total we have 14 questions also. Besides, I wanted to know the real need to read the whole passage. My understanding is for each question the specific para is identified in the question, it is only the last question in which we need to w...

TOEFL RC

Hello, I have already taken GMAT and planning to take TOEFL. I am a little concerned about the approach for TOEFL RC, in GMAT I would typically read the entire RC and then start answering the questions; however in TOEFL I seem to have the flexibility to read the passage in part and answer the questi...

If I were you, I would use GMAT Prep for Quant and MGMAT for CR. Last few days you want to concentrate on OG Material and concepts, avoid doing new material.

I did not take MGMAT course's but I did write all its CAT's. I also wrote GMAT Prep 10 times, but that was not in full exam conditions, I was just trying to get as many questions out of GMAT Prep as possible.

uwhusky, just to bring to your notice that although MGMAT questions are tricky but its score is fairly representative of the GMAT. 3 weeks before I took its test and scored 690. Actually MGMAT is really good to teach time management, something I struggled until the last test. You have to figure out ...

For quant I used MGMAT guides they are actually very helpful, do go through their advanced sections, but as far as questions are concerned OG is really good but GMAT prep should be your GOD, take the test like 20 times, just quant. MGMAT questions for quant are quiet difficult. In quant GMAT doesn't...

If I were you I would wait, I am not sure what is the avg GMAT for the school you plan to apply but unless you can show significant achievement in verbal in some other area, it might be difficult for you too pull it off. I totally understand about the sinking feeling in the end, I had a similar feel...

Guys, I finally achieved my target. First of all I would like to thank Stacey Koprince, Ron Purewel, Stuart Kovinsky and Testluv. Without their help it would not have been possible to achieve my target. I would also like to thank BTG and all the members of BTG for making this forum really helpful. A...

Guys, can you please tell how did you know that 4+x=1, the way I was moving is 1 + -5 + m = 4. But you did a cross section addition.

My question is how did you know that you had to do a cross section addition and not the way I mentioned

I didn't find it simple man, but I would go with 6. M =8, N I couldnt figure, I guessed it should be closer to 0 but less. Between 5 and 6, I pick 5, but have no clue what is N.
