GMATPrep 2, can I retake? [#permalink] New post 08 Jul 2007, 09:42
Also posting in this section..

I just took my GMATPrep2 last night and didn't score too well. I have my exam tomorrow. Can I take the test again? I did decent on the math, got a 42, but I know I can do better. Verbal I completely tanked because half way through I freaked out about the time. I got about 8 of the last 15 wrong because of it.

So I want to give it another try today but I am worried that I will get many of the same problems, specially for Quant. I know I can score in the high 40s but I don't want to get the same questions or else it will be inaccurate.

Is it worth taking again? I really want to do another test today since my test is tomorrow!

Hi Sal, If I were you, I would definitely NOT take any test today with my GMAT morrow !

The best thing you can do today is to keep a relaxed mind and go over the mistakes you committed and try to take your mind off gmat as much as possible ..

U can hang out by the gmat club forum for a couplla hrs this evening -working out some problems frm both the Q and V sections ..

G'luck with ur exam morrow !!

salr15,

IMO, u don't need to take another test today. Most experts suggest that one have a rest and relax on the day before test. And I am completely agree with them. Just enjoy ur day today Do whatever u like if you think that helps you to feel good and concentrated.
On test day actual GMAT quantitative is a little bit easier than that of GmatPrep or Kaplan So don't worry too much.but Be very careful. Try to read the question thoroughly
Quantitative problems are wordy.
This is my personal opinion. My official Quantitative is 48.

GOOD LUCK!!!. I wish u all the best in ur test! I hope tomorrow the # of of 700+ clubbers will increase by 1 more.

Thanks guys for the inspirational words. But not sure if it makes a difference, my test is tomorrow at 5:30 pm. So I planned on taking a practice today and relaxing all day tomorrow. What do you think?

I'd recommend relaxing as much as you can between now and the exam. You might take a few minutes to review topics where you think a little additional practice might help, but taking an entire GMATprep exam is a waste of time and energy. It's too late to learn from the GMATprep, and it's too late to really do anything about it if you discover something.

As many many many test-takers have pointed out, test-day execution can make a significant difference, 30-50 or more points. Make sure you are well rested, properly fed and most importantly confident. That will allow you to do your best.
