I am shamed to say but I score 460 (Q32V22) in GMAT Prep...
So many times I have read the amazing stories at this site, so many times I have said to myself that it can be done, but now I am here to ask any advise because I do not know what to do next. I dont want to give up...
My preparation began last November. That was super time, when I thought that GMAT would take 1-2 months of my time. Thank god, that it has not taken years yet. I attended GMAT course and at the fist day I saw that it was not for me... My dream to apply in February flow away and now, one year later I understand that only some wonder can safe my goal to apply this February.

max Math 35, max Verbal 32
Last week GMAT Prep test 460...
All these months I have been solving hundreds of Math and Verbal questions, each day I spent 2-3 hours on GMAT.
I know my weak areas - I work on it, I have error log
My biggest problem is an inattention, BUT I am always in time at GMAT and I am afraid of it because it means that I am too self-confident when answering...
By the way I have when preparing:
PS - about 70-80% RA (right answers)
DS - 50-60%
SC - 70-90%
CR - 50-80% depends on day
RC - min 50 max 90% depens on text
In GMAT Prep test I had 20 incorrect math answers and 18 incorrect verbal answers, why is my score so low????!!!
I am tired of GMAT but I cant give up... Please, help with advise.
PS I have 9 years of work experience, 5 of them as top manager. I am married, have 2 boys, youngest is 8 months. As you see I am not an English native speaker...
Thanks, It was a scream of my soul.
Take a good Sleep.....Wake up and sit down to retrospect what went wrong both during Exam and during your preparation.
1. Are you really confident in solving PS and DS?
2. Are you really confident in handling SC, RC and CR?
If you get "No" as answer then you have to identify your weaknesses one by one and then start overcoming those weaknesses by doing more and more practice.
Time is also an important factor....You may solve a question with no time constraint but under time pressure you may make more mistakes.
So practice to time yourself.
GMAT prep reflects your present ability so if you score less then you have to look at your weak areas and focus more.
Don't be so hasty.....GMAT requires fair amount of time to prepare....
It's not just about clearing the GMAT but also about to improve yourself....
Looks like you need improvements in all areas, so divide your time wisely and spend time on each section until you gain enough confidence to face GMAT again!!
Always have faith that you can do it.....
Sometimes we may have to think in practical but first we should try our best and then see if GMAT is really meant for us or not.....
