Confused.. 2nd Attempt at Gmat 640 [#permalink] New post 14 May 2012, 10:33
I gave the Gmat for the second time today and scored a 640(Q48 V30).

I am confused about how to prepare now.
Last time I got a 590(Q48 V23).

I went on verbal rampage. I covered the anhatthan SC. Solved all OG problems again. Gmatclub SC problem
(I was very weak in SC)

I gave 6 test in the last 2 weeks alternates days.

GMAt prep 2 690 (47,38)
Manhattan 3 700 (47,38)
GMAt prep 1 new software 700 (49,37)
Manhattan 2 700 (48,36)
GMAt prep 2 new software 710 (50,35)
Manhattan 3 730 (48,41)

The last prep i saw many repeat.
In the actual exam also I actually had a very good RC and i think i went down in CR and SC only.

The problem is I want to give it again but don't know where to study from.

what exactly must be going wrong?

Maths also I found many difficult questions of hexagon which i never saw on the prep exam.

i would suggest you to take the break for few months.forget about gmat .Before that just analyze your mock tests and see in which part you are weak.I feel you have a habit of making silly mistakes that same problem i also face.When i analyze the questions i choose the correct answer.After 2-3 months start preparing again
