Hi All,

Today was a very frustrating day when my GMAT score went down from 650 to 630 in my 2nd attempt. Just wondering if it is common and many other folks have also experienced this.

Below is my GMAT break up :
1st attempt - 650 (Q48, V, 30)

2nd GMAT attempt today (9/26)
- 630 (Q-44, V 34)

I was having high hopes today. As I was getting 700+ in last few GMAT tests that I had given at home. Summary below,

Manhattan GMAT Test 1-3 -> 670- 680
Manhattan GMAT Test 4-6 -> 700-710 (Q - 48-49 & V- 36-40)

GMAT Prep 1 - 670
GMAT Prep 2 - 710 (given 1 day before actual GMAT, Q- 49, V- 37)

Was I getting a high score at home, as I had seen few of the questions in above tests (that I was giving at home) couple of months back. Trust me I didn't remember the answer for any of those question. The only thing that I can make out during home test was that I have seen this question earlier.

Any advice/suggestion for me to go for 3rd GMAT attempt or not will be really great. And if it is common to have above kind of experience in GMAT score.

Also which books/question bank you will suggest for this time that will give me a new and more challenging set of questions? As I have already done Quant and verbal, OG twice during these last 2 attempts and I have read Manhattan books too.

Thanks

The GMAC concedes that if the same test taker takes back to back tests, there is a natural 30 point range the person will float in. This is the reality of the test.

Take a few more practice tests (reset GMATPrep, try the other version/Powerprep).

The Veritas books have very favorable reviews and might help you, but test day anxiety has broken many people here. I'd say evaluate where you think you went wrong and use your most recent practice tests to devise a plan.

Best of luck,
