Day 21 - PR Practice GMAT 2 - F*CK!
Dammit, dammit, DAMMIT!
I scored yet another 690 (43Q, 42V) today on a Princeton Review Practice GMAT. I don't know what the deal is with that score--I just can't seem to budge above that number! Granted, it's still early in my studying, but I was really hoping to poke past 700 today.
The interesting thing about my test today is that I only got a handful of questions wrong. What killed me is that on each section, I got question number 2 wrong. It's a powerful lesson: so much of your score is determined in the first 5-10 questions. BE SURE TO GET THOSE QUESTIONS RIGHT. [Editor's Note: This is a MYTH. After I finished my GMAT, I did some significant research on the importance of getting the first few questions of each section right, and I determined conclusively that it doesn't matter. You can screw up at the beginning of each section and definitely recover to end up with a great score.]
I'll do my usual analysis on Sunday. I need to get my mind off of this shit for one day.

1. Practice GMAT - Princeton Review Adaptive 2, off of CD.
RECAP OF DAY 21 INSIGHTS:
