Dear Paushali , First of all I would really want to thank TPR and its faculty for the immense help provided by them during my GMAT preparation. I still remember when I first thought of preparing for the GMAT and started to refer the Kaplan 800(I still don't know why I did that!!) and was so stumped by the level that I really thought GMAT was probably not my cup oftea. I joined Princeton. When the classes was about to begin I remember me giving the CAT 1 and probably scoring around 450!! That time I was now unsure about my goal of the GMAT. But then the classes started and I started listening to the tips and tricks and all the tactics to deal with all different types of questions. I started to get the main point and in turn gain confidence about the exam. I though remember me getting a bit scared sometimes due to the mistakes I used to make while solving both the manual questions and the OG and by seeing my classmates getting them right :P .But then the workshops and a bit of preparation from my side started which concentrated on the things learnt in class and hence my also tuning started. Before I realized I was getting relatively stronger in my SCs. An important point to mention here is that I am from a state board background and being from a Bengali Medium, my English base was pretty weak. Since I am an engineer, my math was probably relatively stronger. In Math, problem solving was never a big problem but data sufficiency was often a lot of pain to visualize and finalize. That started improving a lot during this course. Finally the exam day appeared and to my utter surprise I was not much tensed, but feeling kind of alright. This was a long shot and probably a dream compared to the first day I opened a GMAT book!! I got 690(q-51, v31).That was the time I really felt bad and sad as the score was like "So near yet so far!". Had a bit of luck been on my side, I could have really managed a 700 which was my target. Anyways no regrets!! I am though not too ...
This is to thank you for the great support and help which I received from you for my GMAT preparation. I had scored a 670 the last time when I appeared for my GMAT and a 640 in the Diagnostic test. This time, with your able support and guidance, I was able to get a 40 in the verbal section and this went a long way in helping me to score a 720. The class room discussions helped me understand the nuances of the verbal section and the booster questions me identify and focus upon my specific weaknesses in the sentence correction questions.
