2 weeks till test day and discouraged [#permalink] New post 26 Aug 2008, 16:46
Hey everyone,

My test date is two weeks away and I've been scoring in the very low 500's on practice exams. My strength is definitely in verbal and not quant.. but I've been having difficulty improving my score and I'm getting really discouraged as test day approaches. It'll be my first time taking the exam and I've been studying for several months, including taking a Kaplan class a little while back. I've gone through the OG11 and official math books, but I've still been struggling.

I'm starting to get really bummed out, if anyone has been in my situation and can provide some advice, I'd really..really..really appreciate it.

Thanks a bunch
James

you havent been using kaplan have you? because their test scores are unreliable. I would just go in (im sure you dont get your money back anymore) and try your best. remember, if at the end you feel like you totally flunked it you can always choose not to have your scores reported.

My 2 cents.....If you arent' ready, suck up the $50 and re-schedule.

If you are anything like me, your nerves are gonna get worse and worse as D-Day approaches, and if you are not 'mentally' ready, it's likely to be a disaster. A good performance in any endeavor requires confidence!

There's no logical reason to believe you will score far higher than practice tests, especially gmatpreps. If you need a far higher score, you should reschedule and study more.
