Guys would really like some help here.
I appeared for my GMAT yesterday and to my disappointment scored a paltry 650 (Q50,V29). I would really like suggestions on how to improve upon my score.
I will tell you about my resources.

SC,RC and CR - Manhattan,
Quant - Various sources but mainly MBA material obtained for CAT preparation.

The reason why this score is surprising, is because of my scores in the Manhattan GMAT tests. I appeared for 4 tests and my scores were : 610, 650, 670 and 710.
The verbal score was in the range of 34 - 37. The official GMAC - I scored a 610 when i appeared for the first time(3 months ago) and a 650 a week before the exam. I am not able to figure out the difference between the Manhattan scores and GMAC score.

During the exam, I got stuck in one of the RC passages, and was forced to rush through the last 15 questions. That could have done a significant harm to my score. But again looking at the similarity between the test that I appeared a week ago and the actual test, I guess there's more to it.
I am not sure what should I do differently and when should I plan my next test.

Also suggestion on how should i plan my preparation in the next couple of weeks would be helpful.

Thanks
