Hi gmatclub members,
Hope you are all well.
A brief background: I'm fairly new to gmatclub, coming across it several times previously to read some discussions on practice problems. I decided to sign up today in preparation for my GMAT retake. I took the GMAT in February 2014 (two weeks ago) and got a horrible 530 Q35 V27 IR4 AWA4.5. I had been studying on and off since early 2011 with the bulk during the past 4 months. However, it is clear that my studying has not been effective or efficient. Upon contemplating on whether I wanted to retake it and speaking with friends, I finally decided that I will retake it by May '14. I have reflected a bit and have some general ideas of where I need to improve. For example, I know that I will need to follow a schedule seriously and stay more focused. I've started to follow Magoosh
's 3 month plan for beginners as I'm hoping the daily objectives can keep me on track. I mostly used Manhattan GMAT
and OG materials previously, and will also reread them where necessary for my retake preparations. I'm realistic about my situation and understand that it's going to take a lot of work to improve my score but I'm aiming for over 700 mostly to try and maximize my score. Any advice or feedback would be appreciated.
