Today I finished my last practice test. 3 more days until I write the real thing, and I can probably safely say I am basically done preparing. Before the actual test day, I’m going to do some of the more difficult problems from the Original Guide 12th Edition that I have been saving. Aside from that, my plan is to just review the list of AWA topics, and some probability questions as that is my weakest area.
My test results were not that great in the middle there. I was hoping to consistently hit the 750+ range on my last few, but didn’t quite manage. The encouraging sign is that I was able to get 760+ on all my GMAT Prep tests, which are supposedly the best predictors of actual performance. My weakest scores were on the Princeton Review tests, with my second last test hitting a 670. I didn’t panic with that score because I was sick that day and I knew my concentration was affected. Overall, I think I should be able to hit my goal of 740+ comfortably as long as I don’t spend excessively long on any questions and don’t have some sort of anxiety attack.
I’ll be posting after my exam is done with my results, and again shortly after with a review of the materials I used and some observations on what worked well to prepare for the exam. Here’s hoping that my next post comes with some good news!
