I posted this on the GMAT board also, but it may be better suited for this forum:
I took the GMAT today and scored a 570. My quant was a 44 and verbal was 25. I have been studying for 3+ months including a Manhattan GMAT class
. Before the MGMAT class
I scored a 580 on my practice test. After the class I took 3 practice tests and scored 650, 640 and 650 then studied for another 10 days and took the test hoping for a 650+. Anyway, my verbal score on the real thing was the worst I have ever scored. I wonder if I was just nervous and a little burnt out by the time I got to the verbal section. I am looking for any advice on books to read, strategies, etc. for the verbal section. I plan on taking the GMAT again in 4-6 weeks.
Also, any advice on applying during the 3rd round for business school? I was hoping to score 650+ and have my applications in for second rounds, but that doesn't look like it will be possible. I have been told the 3rd round is very difficult.
I took my 2nd attempt of GMAT today and was totally devastated by seeing the score 580(Q47 / V25).
My 1st attempt was on 11th Oct and that time i got 650(Q48 / V32). There was a gap of 6 weeks between my 1st nd 2nd attempt and I took vacations for 3 weeks out of those 6 weeks. Worked really hard but in the end feel like a big loser.
Even i dont know what to do.
The only way of finding the limits of the possible is by going beyond them into the impossible.
