Hi Everybody,

I'm in a need of help deciding how to go about the GMAT. When I first took the gmat i scored a 310. Then I hired a tutored and score 380, and then I did self prep and scored 480 (35Q, 22V). I need to score a 600 to get into my dream school. I have been accepted into a public school in my town, but I would have to start taking summer classes on June 26. I don't want to pay that money if i were to be accepted into the school i want to go to more. My dream school wants my official so obviously that would be 20 days. If i took the GMAT on May 28, do youu think that I would be able to raise my score 120 points? Or should I wait and take the GMAT on June 1, 6, 7, or 8? I feel like the sooner the better, but I just dont know what to do! Any advice would be helpful please! I used the mgmat books
thanks!

What the worst if you try again for the GMAT? You made good progress from one session to the next. It's also worthwhile asking what would you do differently to improve your score?

I would also ask do you have to start your Course this year?

Good luck!

From my experience, the best way to improve your score is through practice. You must know all the rules cold first. The gmat is all about rules and the basics. The gmat tries and tricks you by making the basics look extremely tricky. You only get screwed when your foundation isin't 100% solid. If you really want a 600, do the following:

1) Go through the mgmat books. Make sure you know every rule cold: example a line is perpendicular when the slope is the negative reciprocal. I cant emphasize this enough.

2) Get Jeff Sackmans Total gmat. This is the practice. He uses the same question logic, whatever that means, and has created a ton of questions. Once you do all of these, they will become second nature and you will be exposed to so many different types of scenarios. If you do all of this, I can guarantee your score will go up.

Conclusion: You can ask these questions and read posts all day. However, at the end of the day you have to do the work. I started off with a 530 diagnostic score. I was scoring in the low to mid 700's before my real gmat. This came through practice, practice, and practice. Seeing a ton of problems will get you extremely conditioned.
