hey take it easy bangboy...700 is not bad...n done cannot be undone....so just cheer up!!
n congratulations!!...n all the very best with the app. procedure
Firstly Thanks to Erin and Spidey ( for the wonderful SC notes ) !
Just finished the test and Oh what a royal mess up it was !
I felt that the verbal was quite difficult but anyways its always been the bad one for me. What is shocking is how I managed to get 50 in Quants. I revised again and again each question and still finished well before time.
Again failed to manage time in verbal.And maybe all the guesses made when I could localise the answer to one to two choices or so were wrong!
Btw, I have not explained my preperation as I hardly did any. Anyway here it is :
Prepared for 2-3 weeks.The first week I tried out the crack-gmat test and got 670.
Then I tried out the powerprep1 and got a 730. Confidence went up. Second week, was inactive. Third week, I got 680 in Powerprep2 and thats when I realised that its not
gonna be smooth sailing.
So I went through Spidey's notes and the verbal ability sections of Official Guide.
Accuracy levels :
RC :95 % ( Did 20 % of Official Guide )
CR : 90 % ( Did 20% of Official Guide )
SC : 85-90 % ( Did whole of Official Guide )
Kaplan diag - 690.
Three tips :
1. Official Guide is "not" the same as the real one ! However, this might be just my perception. If I did not have good results in Official Guide, maybe I would have done better.
2. Overconfidence is a bad thing.
3. Keep your cool ! I did not, was agitated don't know why!
Anyway Its finally over, but will always haunt me as the cat I could not bell.
