I would like to get some tips and advices about how to prepare for the gmat in 30/40 . I took the test recently and I scored 580 ( Q 48 / v 22 ) I have been preparing for this test in the last 3 months and I was scoring very well
MGMAT 1 650 - Q45/V35
MGMAT 2 640 - Q40 / V37KAPLAN
GMAT PREP 1 - 710 - Q50/V36
GMAT PREP 2 - 710 - Q50/V36
800SCORE ( AVERAGE 5 CATS ) - 680 Q 45 / V38
So my practice test scores were pretty solid but I screw in the test day on my verbal strategy , I was wondering what is the best next step for me ?
Does anybody have can recommend something . I confess that i was not expecting 580 and looking at my scores on practice tests this 580 is definitely underestimated .
Check up this write up on surprise low scores in verbal. That should give you some ideas: http://www.veritasprep.com/blog/2013/03 ... bal-score/
Also, how exactly did you 'screw up' your Verbal strategy on test day? Was it fatigue? Did you just 'not care' anymore? Did you not eat anything during your breaks? With a consistent V36, I would expect you to be at least above 30 in the actual test. It's not easy to explain V22. I would understand if you ask how to go from V30 to V40 but before you do that, you need to figure out what went seriously wrong during the Verbal section. If there was nothing odd about the test, you might want to rethink your strategies. Perhaps then, you need to start from V20 level and revisit all verbal concepts using some source such as Veritas Prep
On Demand. Thereafter, you need to practice the strategies discussed.
