I hasten to add here that what l alitgmat said is also certainly not easy to come by.You seriously have to lay back all your engineer pretenses when you go into GMAT.Somewhere I heard on a video, where the instructor was asked that 'what type of students are most hard to teach for GMAT?'..and withou...

@ram2:just for your info..a few days later after giving my GMAT, I decided to give GRE. Got 780 on maths and 570 on verbal.I did this for two reasons 1) A large number of B-schools take GRE instead of GMAT 2) I wanted to check the state of my brain :) (if I really had such a brain damage to get so l...

@ram2:I dont know what to say here, because I was also in the same predicament as you.But seeing numerous posts and reading them, I have formed one picture (not good) and that is of GMAC having possibly a different set of quant database set for people giving tests in S.Asia,India,Asia etc compared t...

@Maria7890:I believe the situation can be different at any place and indeed your instuctor could also be a committed teacher, but I believe you would be pleasantly surprised by the MGMAT material itself. (if not the teacher)

@Anthony:Love the way you write a long email in response, but I fear that I would have to side with Maria's apprehensions I don't really want to disclose the name of the center because, personally I really do not want anyone's careers to get jeopardized in the process or to think somehow that somebo...

!! ...this is actually the same response I received word-to-word!!... Is this a computer generated message? (although the name of the guy was in the end and looked personalized)..really one needs to be 'abashed' for reading such automated response from reputed companies!. how about only email to US?...

I think the GMAC service has to come up with the most fickle replies ever! I emailed them for checking the score discrepancy in the test and about Pearson VUE services at the test centre and the customer representative responds back by saying 'the report is made by going three layer process from thr...

@Whintey:thx for the info

I saw the trailing 0' somewhere else. might have been explained by Stacey.It was utilizing the same strategy of 5's and 2's...but I guess the 19! and 29!, made it a little perplexing.

btw, exactly this 'sort' of a question was featured in GRE some time back :)

rishab:if you are too much keen on maths aspect than I agree with you that you should opt for Masters in finance instead of the MBA route.My elder brother (who is also an engineer) used to lament the fact that he did MBA instead of going for the masters in finance.According to him 2 years are overra...

@Night reader:Sorry about the mistake there...I always mix them up....You are right.It is Pearson VUE and not GMAC. The GMAC actually had taken the test from ETS (who administers GRE) and gave to Pearson VUE. GMAC is actually holding an alliance of all MBA institutes, but according to recent reports...

I actually dont know what to make out of GMAC ways here. Some places people are getting (no tech background whatsoever) quant scores up above 40Q easily and at some places it is bringing down to abysmally low levels. I just wish there was some transparency in whether their software is actually up to...
