I am looking for some advice on retaking my GMAT.
I took the test last week and did not perform as well as I had expected, now I'm not sure how to allocate my time for a new study plan.
I started studying for my GMAT June, but really did not focus as much as I needed. After a couple of months of working through the Kaplan
book, I decided I needed a course to keep me on track. At that point I was scoring in the high 500's on my practice tests (up from the high 400's initially).
I signed up for a 6 week course in September and dedicated myself to doing it right.
I attended all classes, watched all supplementary videos, and did all the homework problems. I studied pretty much 6 days a week for 9 weeks.
My goal was to break the 670 mark on my exam.
My last practice tests were in the 620-640 range.
I wrote the exam last week and scored a 600 (Quant: 40, Verbal: 32).
It wasn't a timing issue, and I don't think it was stress related.
Aside from feeling dejected at this point, I feel lost on what to do now.
I know I need to retake the exam, and I would like to do it before I get busy with the traveling for the holidays in December)
SC is definitely my weak suit in verbal (from how I was performing on practice tests), but my quant could probably use some all around work.
Can anyone advise me on how to tackle the next 5 weeks (or so)?
Are there any quiz banks/ sets of questions people would recommend?
Should I buy another package of practice tests? Official GMAT?
I feel like I just need to get a tonne of practice questions in at this point, but I'm certainly open to suggestion.
Thanks in advance
