hi,

This is the first time i write something in the forum. I hoped this would be a debrief of my 700 GMAT score ...
3 months ago i scored 640 with a 31 - 47 split. I didn't took a course the first time. I mainly solved questions from the official guide.

This time i registered Knewton's course. I felt like i am getting better, especially on the verbal part. I retried the prep exams and scored 770 and 720. Tough i had already done these tests 3 months ago. The verbal scores were 44 and 38. My last CAT in knewton was 730 with a 40/49 split.

I slept good at night and basically did everything the same. But apparently the score was not quite the same: 49 on the math and 25 on the verbal.

I am in complete shock. Might give it a last try a month from now.

I don't intend to learn anything new for the next exam. Just want to keep the same level. Can anyone recommend on a set of exams with a good correlation to the GMAT Veritas maybe? Or the 800 score exams. Next time I will try to take some remedies to handle the stress. Tough I didn't think i was that stressed.

If anyone has anything comforting to say or a similar story to share i will be happy to hear it . The last couple of months were very hard and i didn't expect such a disastrous score as a comfort.

Thanks,
Youval

do not forget about luck factor.

You are shocked - leave that emotion behind and have a light preparation for the next exam.
