Hi guys,

My exams is coming in two weeks, I just did the practice exam from ManhattanGmat with the score 610 yesterday...
I did my previous two for 640, when after some studying, i thought i would have improved...but my score just lower to 610...I did all the OG12th Quant pro and score average 87%, I duno why just cant beat 44 on my Quant when i did my practice exams...my verbal is around (32-36 each time)

Exam is coming in two weeks...did most of the problems in OG12th already, what else should i do..=(
Target is 680...I dont know how can i get it...=(

how is your GMATPrep score? Also, are you handling exam pressure? If you get tough questions in beginning, are you able to stay focused for remaining questions?

Work on GMAT club challenges. That would help you to increase few points in Quant. Identify the reason for your low score, go through the concepts for that section again.

I have not taken any GMATPrep exam yet... since they do not give explanation, so probably I wont work on it or wait til the day or two before my exam.
I am using OG12th, and the books from ManhattanGMAT. I think my most problem for the Quant part is running out of time, the last 8 questions I am doing them from educated guessing. Verbal part I feel like really depends on whether I can concentrate during the exam, and the verbal part seems hard to improve.

Thanks dreamy, I am trying to look for that challenge questions.

I feel you should take GMATPrep early rather than waiting for your actual GMAT. Here is why..

1) There are two tests in total. both these are official tests with official questions, resulting in more realistic estimate.
2) if you take it day or two before the test, what can you improve at that stage? What is the benefit of knowing how much you will get when you can't change it? It is better to assess your score now then waiting for last day.
3) Some people even try GMATPrep multiple times. Why? because, it contains is lot of real GMAT questions, and practice of real question matters the most when you compare with other unofficial questions. If you wait till last day, you don't get enough time to practice the pool of real questions that you already have with you.

for verbal, I am in the same boat as you. So, I am not the right person for advice. I hope someone on this forum helps us both.
