A poor 620 (Q44, V31)......now let┬┤s see [#permalink]

I took the exam yesterday, very difficult math though I had a not so bad score. I thought I was doing very bad in quant, but it turned pretty well. I had only one combiantion problem (very easy), and one probability (DS).
On the verbal, I started very well with about 6 SC and then 2 RC of about 3 to 4 questions each. I thought I was doing great, but at the end, the result was completely dissapointing. I was expecting somthing like 37. I really do not understand what happened in verbal, as I was sure I was doing great.
Well that was my experience, really don┬┤t know if I will retake yet.
I had already given the GMAT 4 times, 500, 570 and 580, at least I improved every time.
Hi there...wow..4 cracks at the GMAT, full marks for perseverance! You're an inspiration actually because you've improved each time you've taken the test! I guess seeing how far you've actually come from your first score, you should be very happy with this score!
You said the maths was hard, yet you had a good score in the end What exactly was difficult or different that you encountered? _________________
I found math difficult maybe because I was anxious and nervous, but in the end I think the kind of problems were different form what I saw in the OG. There were more like tricky and time consuming. Lot of Algebra, some statistics, 1 comb and 1 prob, etc.
I will not rest till I get something above 650, so I may try it again in some days.
I completely agree with you about math.
The math was EXTREMELY difficult and time consuming.
Being a former mathematician, I hate to do backsolving in math problems,
but I had to do so in order to finish in time.
Don't lose heart! If you have any particular questions (which seems hard for your) I would be happy to help you with them! (but we should move to the quant section of this forum)
