GMAT Select Section Order

Hi, I have received an email from GMAC stating that if I am planning to retake the GMAT exam (which I am), I will now have an option of selecting the order of sections in the exam. This is a pilot experiment and they are presently testing this on 1% of test takers for analytical analysis. Only the o...

Start there and dive into more problems. There are a few new problems in OG 13, but not that many. The old paper exams are a decent way to go, but there are not answer explanations... Thats where I am struggling to get my hands on decent question bank. I guess I am going to bisect OG12 and OG-VA 2n...

Hi Vaibhav, I'd be happy to elaborate and put you on a path. Understanding your proportions that are right and wrong isn't enough to go on. I would need to review with you your particular, idiosyncratic patterns to recommend any more detailed an approach, but in short, your solution is problems, pr...

Hitting a scoring plateau in a particular section is a common occurrence. That you were uncertain of your answers strikes me as a key problem that your prep has not adequately addressed. In each verbal problem, there is a clear correct answer. Often, the correct answer doesn't seem clear, or you ha...

Hey, Thanks for the pointer. I have started with CR and I have started to solve everything and anything under CR and look to get it right. I wish to continue this till I reach 90% consistently. I also ordered Aristotle SC book (I already have MGMAT SC), hoping that the book will help me achieve 90% ...

Hi, I took GMAT today and got a 630. (QA: 48; VA: 29 ). :( :( During the exam, I was uncertain of my answers in VA which actually turned out to be very disastrous.

There is no abyss. Do not think of it that way... You are in a process, you may not have everything click until you get closer to the test date. You cannot lose faith now. You need to keep trying to understand what is happening in CR and SC. It is about understanding the reasoning process. It can b...

Hi David, I took manhattan gmat cat test (test2) and scored another 630 (v31,q46). This is really demotivating. I dont know where I am going wrong in verbal. Atleast the score should be on increment even if not touching the perfect score. With 2 weeks to go for GMAT (9th April) I am looking down the...

Well 7 more questions right is quite a few so that would have certainly helped if you had not made those silly errors. I am not sure it would have taken you all the way from a 640 to a 700, but it would have helped a lot! I am not sure that we can say that your knowledge base is not lacking, it may...

Adding to the above post, I have analysed my verbal incorrect questions and I have found that I got 6-7 (4SC + 1 CR + 2 RC) questions wrong in particular which I should have got right under all circumstances. (silly mistakes). Is it OK think that if I would have got these 7 questions right I would h...
