in my prep for the GMAT, i was breezing through the quant section and having trouble with verbal. i took about 10 practice tests and this was the case every time. however, on the real GMAT, i got an incredibly difficult quant section and a easy verbal section. as a result, i did better on the verbal than i did on the quant. overall i got a 650. i'm thinking about retaking it because i had NEVER done that poorly on the quant.
what are some people's thoughts on this. there is one school of thought that would say go for it because i just got unlucky in getting a strange quant section, but there is another school of thought that says i probably wouldn't get as easy verbal section again. i know that the test is supposed to be uniform and standard, but from hearing what other people saw on the test, i am certain that my quant was harder than some others, and my verbal was definitely easier than some others. ANY THOUGHTS???
yes, for some reason occasionally people jump into a Quant swamp - and even the most confident takers are shocked.
I scored on the Verbal section much better than I thought I would do, but my quant was not too hard either, at least it did not look so.
Even if you don't get an as easy Verbal section again, you can raise an argument to the Adcom that one time you were emphasizing quant and the other Verbal
you will at least demonstrate that you can score well in both....
