Practice Test 1: Super Low Results

I am just now starting on my GMAT/MBA journey and haven't done any studying yet. This afternoon I took my first practice test and am horrified with my results. My overall score was 310 (11 Q / 19 V / 3 IR). ? I am planning on taking the actual test in June/July, so about 4 months from now and would like to get a 700ish. Do you think this is a realistic goal or should I just give up now? I also wasn't necessarily planning on using a test prep service, but after this practice test, I should probably think about using one.

DO you have any professional work experience?


Mark O.

If you do have significant professional work experience, like say 5 years, a lot of good business schools waive the GMAT. In fact, most good business schools prefer an MBA applicant to possess substantial professional work experience.
