I took the GMAT today(June 5). Really upset with my score... I never expected such a low score :(

I have always scored in the 710-750 range in GMATPrep and MGMAT tests. (Q (49 -51) and V (38 - 42)).

Materials used - OG11 & 12, MGMAT books, Kaplan, Princeton, solved few questions from 1000 series(SC,RC,CR). Knewton's course !

I think I need to work more on RC and CR and review the concepts in Quant.

Please suggest some strategies and study material which will help me in the second attempt !!

Thanks.

670 is definitely not ur score. I really like ur SC replies....... Some times things dont turn up as expected.
BadLuck.... Continue to prepare and Crack it next time............

The material u prepared is more than enough..... But i think u can increase ur Math score to 49-50 that will help u a lot.

Was math Section too difficult in the Main Exam?

I believe you should try LSAT sets to increase your CR/RC skills

oh, I forgot to ask you.

Have you increased your score more than 50 points?
I mean does Knewton`s policy really work? What was your experience using its service?

I screwed up the Quant. section by getting a bit tensed(might have made silly calculation errors :( )... The questions were almost close to GMATPrep.. I never scored below 49 in practice tests..

Anyway, hoping for the best next time !

I would suggest you to take a break, clear your mind and devise a new prep strategy. Maybe, as was suggested in other posts, you can work on harder questions so that you can increase your overall level.

I have decided to start reading Powerscore Bible for Verbal(CR, SC, LSAT RC).. and solve as many questions as possible from 1000 Series (PS, DS, SC, CR, RC)

It seems to me that your verbal is the weaker of the two. If I could have your Q mark, I'd be dancing on a random sidewalk.

Yep... Verbal is definitely the weaker one... (i somehow improved from 27 to 35).. but 35 isn't enough for a 700+ score :(
