Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Look who is responding to your post- all of us. We all know what you went through; that you may have been a little shaken up by the cosmetics of the real test because it is VERY different from all practice tests available. It actually IS computer adaptive and DOES choose questions that you have never seen before. 1% of test takers get their ideal score on the first crack, so take a day or two off to revamp your verbal strategy, and jump back in wholeheartedly. I too am trying for attempt #2 after being mortified by a 570 last September. But the past is the past. Learn from it and move on...
There is no doubt in my mind that you will be shocked when you see your second score next month, a full 100 points higher than today`s.
That is not your score. Your score should be much better. There can be so many reasons that are beyond your control. Probably you didn't have a nice sleep the night before the exam. Probably it was just a bad day all together.
Just forget about today, on any given day you should get a better score than today.
Man your math skill is just killer. There is no way you can get anything less than 51 on the math. And on the verbal part, I bet you are as good as anyone else.
Just try to find out what went wrong today; if possible schedule the test in the afternoon. I am sure you will break the 700 score.
Finally don't worry at all. Look forward to the future.
duttsit... common dude.. if guys like you give hope. . then ppl like us should not even think about scoring aboove 700.. I know you can do it.. everyone else knows you can do it.. Give it one more shot.. One bad day, you know so..dont ruin it.. just give it one more shottttttttttttttttttttttttt

I have seen some of your explanations in the math forums and there is no way a 49 in Q appropriately reflects your ability. I scored a 46 in Q today, and if you deserve a 49, i should've gotten a 30 . Good luck on your second attempt. I'm sure you will do very well. By the way, my biggest improvement was in verbal, you can reference my post (which i will type soon) in regard to the strategy I used.
Once again, disregard this score and good luck on your next attempt!
