Hi, Your GMAT score is really great, so why are you looking to retest? Your missing points are clearly in the verbal, but it sounds like you're taking the "long" way to answer verbal questions. I've found the empowergmat material to be fast and easy to use. It might help you with your paci...

How have your verbal scores been? I think the ultimate measure of the material is how well it helps you to achieve your goals.

Hey Jay, My verbal wasn't originally that great either, but I think it comes down to how you "view" the material (and what types of wrong answers you're picking). I've used the empower gmat course and it's helped a lot (plus it's a monthly subscription, so you don't have to spend a ton of ...

Hi, The advice that I've received is that it takes 3 months to hit your peak, so you shouldn't be too down on yourself since it's only been 2 months. Also, your quant score is something that a lot of math people (bankers, engineers) score. If you want a higher quant score, then you need more strateg...

The advice I've heard is that, with your scoring range, you SHOULD take your gmat. If the sco...

SCs and DSs show up a lot on the gmat, so you have to be solid in those areas if you want a great score. Some are listed on this site, others can be grabbed from other sites (mba.com, empowergmat.com, gm...

Hi, It sounds like you didn't do the proper endurance training for the actual GMAT. Most people think that it's just about mental training, but the gmat has other factors, including physical/endurance (that's something I've picked up while prepping). When you took your practice tests, you skipped th...
