Hey maverick, you can be my wingman. Sorry, I had to say. All seriousness, keep your head up and retake it. I have taken the test 3 times already and I have not fared well compared to how I should. I will be retaking it in a month. See my post for info. I have consistently score over 700 in all my practice tests (save the Kaplan
tests), but can't seem to get over 640 on the real thing. I would say that the real test is getting a little tougher over the years, and for good reason. If you read some posts from a few years ago on this forum you will see that the content was a bit different, and by different I mean possibly easier. Although I don't think that it is much harder now. My problem, and maybe it is for you, is that I get really nervous for tests like this. Maybe minset is your flaw (like mine). I am currently working on improving my mental state (taking yoga, breathing exercises,etc) so as to go into the test with a positive state of mind, not getting rattled by guessing or time constraints. I guess what I am trying to say is that if you have the fundamentals down, have done well on practice tests, and are overall very confident in your abilities, then maybe you should try to fix your mindset and definitely retake it. You will do better. However, if you are scoring in the high 500s or low 600s on practice tests, then work on the knowledge and fundamentals, get involved in the challenges on this forum, use an error log
etc. I hope this helps.
