All,
I took my GMAT today and got a 660.totally devastated :( .. I panicked in my verbal :(
Below are practice test scoresp

Mgmat1 - 680 - before beginning to prepare - May 20th
Mgmat2 - 730 - untimed - June 5th
Mgmat3 - 710 - June 15th
GmAtprep 1 - 730 - June 18th
Mgmat 4 - 730 June 25th
GMAT prep2 - 750 July 2nd
GMAT prep1 repeat - 760 July 4th
GMAT prep 2 repeat - 750 July 7th
I had taken mgmat 4 and GMAT Preps with AWA at the same time as the GMAT and in exam setting.


Actual GMAT - 660 49q 31 v July 9th
Started verbal with some easy SCs and CRs and I thought I was cruising along pretty well and started taking it easy I guess. I got lost somewhere in between and suddenly realized that I had to finish 20 questions in 23 minutes and my brain stopped working :(((

Planning to retake in a month

guys.. Don't loose focus during the exam...

cryptoner,

Nice work on the quant. Any advice for us on the quant?

It's very important to give breaks to your eyes (take notes in the RC section even though you will not use them) especially in the verbal section. After 2 hours of concentrated effort your brain is on auto-pilot mode and your eyes are just ready to give up.

overall i dont think that 660 is such a bad score, but looking at your mock scores it is low. dont worry buddy, just a matter of 30 days and then you can fix it. i know the wait seems long but just have confidence in yourself (and ur mock scores) and it will be a piece of cake.

all the very best for ur next attempt..!!

Don't lose focus -

so easy to say, so hard to do.

I'm sure you can do better -- best of luck with your inevitable retake!
