I took the GMAT yesterday and got a 640 and was shocked when I saw my score.
I used the Manhattan guides and OG 12
Manhattan SC and Powerscore CR
books for verbal.
I was consistently doing well on GMAT Prep and Powerprep tests which was the reason I booked an appointment and went ahead and took the exam.
Here's my practice test scores
Gmatprep 1 - 650
Gmat prep 1 repeat 720 Q49 V40
Powerprep 1 and 2 740 Q49 V41
Gmat Prep 2 730 Q48 V41
Gmat prep 2 reinstalled 770 Q50 V47 (very few repeats)
GMAT 640 - Q42 V 36
I badly need a score of atleast 720. What do you suggest I do?
I did self study and did not use shortcuts and the bullcrap but learnt all the concepts cold and was pretty confident I would do well.
At the same time, I dont think I saw any questions which threw me off balance or those which I couldn't do. I ran out of time in both the sections - I normally finish verbal with atleast 10 minutes on the clock. I had to guess the last 3 Q's on both the sections.
I'm not a morning person but wrote the test in the morning - which must have partly contributed to the decrease - maybe a lack of concentration or maybe my nerves got to me.
Im very disappointed and confused. I would be grateful if the Gurus here can guide me - retake in a month or retake in 2-3 months(take about 10 days off and then come back full force)
Also, I think Ive exhausted all the resources - tests and practice problems I have - It would be nice if you guys could suggest more practice resources/tests
P.S. I think I might have messed up the first few Qs in quant - another probaale reason for my low score.
