Shiven Khosla

quote  My name is Shiven Khosla. I attempted the GMAT on 9th September' 12 and scored a 760 (Q: 51 V:40). I had joined The Princeton Review in the month of June with the aim of getting a score of a 700 on the GMAT. Back then 700 was the highest that I could have thought of. It was only after meeting the super competitive batch that I was a part of here at Princeton, that I realized that I must reset my score expectations. My Quantitative skills have always been decent. My undergraduate degree in Engineering, I must confess, did help me a lot on the Quant. I always knew that anything other than a 51 on Quant would shatter my dreams of a good score. This is where my Quant instructor, Tarun, made his entry. He assessed my weaknesses in a jiffy and gave me ways and means of solving questions in a matter of few seconds. Problem Solving, thanks to Tarun sir, became a cake walk for me. Data Sufficiency was no different. Tarun Sir instilled in me the ability to think the GMAT way and well that is precisely what got me a perfect 51 on my GMAT. Owing to the tips and tricks I picked up from Sir, I was done and over with my Quant section on my final day with 20 minutes to spare :) Though Quant was a friend right from day one, Verbal was a bitter enemy. I dreaded Reading Comprehensions, hated them so much that it was almost impossible to do anything about them. Critical Reasoning somehow came naturally to me, but there were a lot of incidences where I would always get stuck between the last two answer choices. Mansi, my Verbal instructor, came as a blessing in disguise. From pushing my RC accuracy up from a 50% to almost a 90% to helping me confidently pick the right answer choice when down to the last two, she did all that could humanly have been possible. Her responses to the questions on the group were always prompt and accurate. Classes were so challenging and so enriching, that there wasn't even a single moment when I did not learn something new. It was only due to Mansi's constant pushing and her never ending support that I finally landed up a 40 on Verbal. My genuine advice to anyone who is serious about the GMAT: The content that The Princeton Review asks your to solve is par excellence. Listen to what your teachers say and trust me there is no way that you are not touching your dream score.  quote
