Advice Retake Strategy Urgent! [#permalink] New post 04 Jul 2011, 08:03
Hello,

Here goes my story. I completed Knewton course and took the GMAT 10 days ago. I found the Knewton material useful and felt I was doing well through the course. I was always concerned about their CAT algorithm and read some similar experiences. I was really confident on getting something around my GmatPrep Tests (~650) but I unfortunately got 560! I definetely have to retake the test but I am not sure on what strategy to follow! As I said, I have completed all Knewton material and I am not sure if it is useful to go trough it again.

I have only ~ 7 weeks to retake the test since I have to focuss on my essays and rec. letters in Sept/Oct to apply in the first rounds around Nov.

TOTAL Q V
Knewton Diag Mar 23 480 29 28
Knewton Pract.1 Apr 24 510 37 24
Knewton Pract.2 May 22 560 36 32
Knewton Pract.3 Jun 05 550 36 31
Knewton Pract.4 Jun 11 540 41 25
Knewton Pract.5 Apr 24 570 38 31
GMATPrep 1 Jun 18 660 44 36
GMATPrep 2 Jun 19 640 41 36
Actual GMAT Jun 23 560 (%52) 35 (%39) 31 (%58)

I really appreciate your advice and experiences on similar cases.

Thanks!

Have you seen this thread:
should-i-retake-gmat-thread-retaking-gmat-strategies-83339.html

Test day anxiety/test conditions can cause people to do much lower than his/her real potential. The GMAC also concedes if you take the test twice in a row, your score can vary by as much as 40 points.

Read the above thread, use some other free practice tests to evaluate where you need to improve, make a study plan and go for it.
