Congrats on your score. And thanks for writing this post. I've been toying with the idea of using meditation to help ease my test anxiety and this post shows that it can be helpful.

All the best!

First of all, congrats!! I've also been using Veritas Tests and found a discrepancy between my Veritas score and my score on the tests provided on MBA.com (my Veritas score is consistently much higher). How often did you use each? Did you use one more than the other? Is it just a matter of drilling ...

Thank you for sharing your story and your practice plan. Congrats on the fab score! If you don't mind me asking, did you study a different topic in the morning and the evening or did you find your self sticking to Quant on some days and Verbal on others?

Ugh, the GMAT can be overwhelming at times. Sorry. As far as whether or not you should apply now, that all depends. When do you want to go to B-school? What schools are you looking into? If you have time it may be worth making an attempt to get a better score after researching schools and creating a...

I'm sorry to hear that you're getting frustrated with this test. Outside of the 8 mock tests, how are you studying? Maybe changing your study methods will help improve your score.

I don't think it's impossible at all. Just make sure you create and really stick with a study plan. And don't forget to review questions you get wrong. That's something that has been very hard for me to do but has improved my success. Best of luck!! :)

Congrats!!!!

This gives me hope. I too took a class and didn't see a huge increase, but I plan on using their tips and progressing from there. Your tips are great as well! Congrats again (On Tough Mudder...my friends just finished that race...and the GMAT)! Best of luck with your Grad School apps. :)

Congrats on your admission and on getting a 700! People may post 760+ scores, but the test is only out of 800 so don't sell yourself so short!

I don't know how encouraging this will be, as I am also trying to improve my score, but I think you should take a step back and maybe reevaluate how you are studying. Have you been using books or just taking practice tests? And where are you taking the tests? Maybe you can try taking them in a "test...
