Hi Vaibhav. How does it feel to achieve a 770 on your first attempt?
Feels great. Although this is my first attempt, I have been preparing on and off for over 2 years.
Oh, is it? Can you tell us a bit more about your preparation?
Initially, my preparation was very random. I was going through the Official Guide and randomly browsing forum posts on GMAT Club. This continued on and off till mid 2015, when I realized that I need a more structured approach if I have to ace the GMAT. That’s when I joined e-GMAT Verbal Online.
How did you prepare using Verbal Online?
Initially, I just quickly completed the course and consequently, was stuck at a 710-720 on the mocks. However, after booking my exam date, I studied more seriously using the course and was able to see significant improvement in my ability.
How did e-GMAT help you with the GMAT Verbal section?
Before enrolling for the course, my accuracy in SC was somewhere close to 50-60% in 700+ level questions. I realized that this is not enough if I have to break the V40 barrier.
After studying using Verbal Online and consistently practicing the processes taught in the course, I could see a significant improvement in my verbal performace. Towards the end of my preparation, I was consistently scoring more than a V40 in each of the GMATPrep mocks.
e-GMAT’s Verbal Course is worth every dollar spent.
Glad the course helped you, Vaibhav. Any preparation related advice that you’d like to give to your fellow GMAT aspirants?
Do not wait until you are in a situation where you can study for multiple hours everyday for 2-3 months. It is okay even if you study only for one hour or less some days. Do not procrastinate.
Also, make sure to frame preparation strategy and follow a methodical process to solve questions in order to ace the GMAT
