I was booking my slot for GMAT in New Delhi. I saw 2 Centers -
1. Positive Solutions - NEW (Near Pahar Ganj)
2. Pearson Professional Centers-New Delhi, - Old - (Near NIFT)
I know the details about the old one. I just want to know the reviews of test takers about the new 'Positive Solutions' Center, things such as - Noise, Screens, Comps, etc.
It will be a great help. Thanks.
@Mods - I cudn't find any thread relevant for this post. So I have made a new thread. If its not in right place, you may post it there or gimmi the link. But its kinda urgent.
Myth 1: More practice = Higher GMAT score
Myth 2: 1000SC is standard prep material
General Myth 3 (may or may not apply to you) : "My problem was time management"
I will elaborate on each separately.
Myth 1: The explanation
GMAT is a test designed to engage higher order reasoning skills, just more practice will not get you anywhere close to your dream score. It is more important to learn from your mistakes on the OG than doing 200 more questions. Review,not Revise should be the mantra.
Myth 2: The reasons
Authentic material is always hard to find, less in quantity and Always about quality. If you are returning to the OG's and still remember the answers, it just means that you are coming back too soon. Probably you tried to mug up the correct answers while doing it the first time round, rather than understanding what was the real learning, or takeaway from that question.
General Myth 3: Know your current level as best possible
If you are unable to score the first time around, it is quite possible that you could have done better with better time-management, but does it not apply to everyone? Practice CAT's are the tools which provide you with the ability to manage your time well on the G-Day. If you were unable to manage time in both the sections then definitely there was some shortfall in your preps which led to that. Concentrate on those shortfalls rather than letting yourself believe that the next time, better time management will save you. Q46 is 73%ile and V27 is around 41%ile, the only way from here is forward(or Up).
Now my suggestions, if possible, take a break, re-assess the strategies you have been using till now. I am sure you will find a lot of areas where you can definitely improve. Dont rush into taking the GMAT again till you really believe that it was JUST the time-management that stumped you. if that is the case, then you dont need any more practice as such, just give some GMATPrep's, finish the OG's again and take the test 31 days after your first attempt.
I wrote this long post just to let you know that trying again is not the problem, trying at the right time when you are really READY is much, much more important. Please think about your action plan once again before doing anything else.
If you need any specific help do pm me.
A) Which B-Schools to target is a very personal choice, depending on your dreams, goals, choice of location etc. More details will be required to even start to point towards any schools.
B) Her experience seems to be good, at least no. of years wise, the essays need to be well written to make any app look convincing ! (Maybe u can ask her to get her profile evaluated by some professionals )
C) Re-take of GMAT should be attempted if she has the drive to do so, because until and unless she really wants to do it, there would be no point in pushing her to retake. And obviously she should feel that she can improve on the 610 she has got.
D) Since you are already a Puy, maybe you can help add another Puy to this forum and ask her to join and utilize the vast resources available at hand and also interact with experts and commoners alike.
