MGMAT #1 480 (Q28, V27)
MGMAT #2 550 (Q38, V28)
MGMAT #3 550 (Q37, V29)
MGMAT #4 610 (Q36, V37)
MGMAT #5 490 (Q28, V30)

Loved the pace I was on, but I just took one to the gut right now. Not much else to say I guess. Got to get back up and keep working at it. To be honest, I didn't study as much this past week as I would have loved to. I also completely botched DS in the sense that once I had confirmed A to be sufficient, I didn't bother to check B. Not sure where my head was at there.

Anyone else have this happen before? Any tips?

These topics interest me a lot, where people report very dynamic scores. In my opinion, and keep in mind, this is a huge assumption, people that score between 500-620 on practice tests are more likely to have an unpredictable result on the real GMAT. My friend was scoring the same on practice tests as you and ended up with a 590 on his first attempt, and 30 days later, with a 500.

My advice would be to revisit the fundamentals, such as reading the MGMAT books.

I'm not sure I would call these "dynamic" scores. I had a 70 point jump, 0 point jump, 60 point jump, and most recently a 120 point fall. I was working my way up until my most recent score.

I plan to go through each test and organize the problems types that I have most issue with and tackle those sections in the MGMAT books.
