My Mock scores are in my signature.

I just took the GMATPrep II - Scored a 700 (q50 v34)
I made 4 SC, 4 RC and 3 CR mistakes!!!!

I had 17 SC, 12 CR and 13 RC questions. It felt as if I am seeing only SCs!!!

Now I am very very upset. What do I do? Any ideas?

You're doing fine. Just maintain composure on the real thing. It's apparent verbal is what is driving the up/down in your score. Your mistakes are split fairly evenly between the subsections. Keep cranking through your error log and make progress.

Hi there,

I know you only have 15 days left, but keep your head up! I do see that you've been taking a lot of practice tests over the course of your studies, and I wanted to make sure you've been analyzing the tests as you go, and really working through whatever problem areas you may have, as opposed to blazing through practice questions. I know GMAT Prep doesn't offer as in-depth analysis as our tests do, but it's definitely worth looking into where you can bolster your weaknesses in these last two weeks. We actually have two articles dedicated to exactly the time frame you're in:

The Last 14 Days: Building Your Game Plan - http://www.manhattangmat.com/blog/index ... game-plan/

The Last 14 Days: How to Review - http://www.manhattangmat.com/blog/index ... to-review/

Hope those articles are helpful!

Best Wishes,
Caitlin Clay

Thank you for the advice. I do spend a lot of time analyzing every single test to recognize patterns of conceptual gaps. In fact I spent the last couple of days re-working on the questions I answered incorrectly in all my mocks. At first stamina was a major issue so I took so many tests.
After all this while I am not able to recognize the major area that is pulling my score down. My CR accuracy has always been 90% but all of a sudden it has dwindled. GMATPrep SCs caught me slightly off-guard. I faced 17 odd questions and some of them were way beyond my abilities. Its just the matter of 5-6 mistakes that is making all the difference!

Do you think working through the vast GMATPrep Documents give me an edge on the test day?

Well that was the plan - I have mastered my weaknesses, so that is not the major concern. Now the loopholes have become very erratic and cannot even find a specific pattern in them. I am clueless what to do. I will practice some material tomorrow and retake the GMATPrep keep my hopes high! Guess thats all I can do!

Aside from keeping your hopes high, maintaining composure during the test is very important.

1. Monitor time, but not too much. Check at specific intervals to make sure you are on point to finish
2. Don't let one problem drag you down. If you get stuck, make a best attempt to solve and move on.
3. Don't let one known incorrect answer ruin you. You can make it up.
