I got a 650 and went down to 620, It's really frustrating my verbal went down while my match went up. I was pretty consistent with getting high 600's on practice exams. I have done mgmat practice exam all 6 twice and GMAT Prep 2x. Anywhere else I can go get more practice exams?

When you review a question what do you go back and review and what do you look for?

Did I burn out too much? I study a lot but I still have the motivation to go in everyday and study for 2-3 hrs and weekends 5-6 hours.

Not sure what I should do....

Taking more tests won't help you. You must review the tests thoroughly. It seems there are few concepts that are giving you tough time and you are not able to identify them. Check for all this issues while you review the tests also i hope there is not timing issues, i mean whether you are spending equal time through out or rushing at the end and guessing on few. A drop in performance is a clear indication of a flaw in the study plan and to improve ur score to 700 , you need to identify this flaw.

Though it's important to practice , however, more important is to have clear concepts/fundamentals. Most of the people ignore this important aspect. I' following a study plan in which i regularly revise the concepts besides doing a lot of practice questions. Everytime i read MGMAT Sc guide, i learn something new, same is the case with POwerscore CR and MGMAT RC. I feel one needs to keep his or her mind very open while reading these books. After some time , you tend to understand the questions and answer choices better, thus improving ur accuracy.
