Help: increase from 610 to 670-700 [#permalink] New post 11 Nov 2011, 21:18
hello everyone,

I took my first GMAT attempt last Nov. 3 and got a score of 610 (Q44, V29). I'm planning to retake on Dec. 8, which gives me around 3 weeks to prepare. I'm currently working also which gives me limited time to study for long periods on weekdays. Although lately while studying for the TOEFL, i tried squeezing in a few sample/practice questions during my lunch break.

Any suggestions on how i can increase my score to 670-700 range?

Thanks in advance.

Definitely take advantage of the holiday season and the long weekends to study hardcore for your retake. This will be helpful especially because you are also working during the day. I would not recommend studying for the TOEFL at the same time. Remember, to optimize your performance on test day, you'll want to keep as focused and relaxed as possible. Don't complicate your life if you don't need to.

Follow this 1 month study plan. For ambitious students, you can do this in closer 2 or 3 weeks.

Since you've already taken the exam, you have a rough expectation of what to expect. Certainly don't overlook the psychology component of the test. Remember, it's like a mental marathon.

Your verbal seems quite weak. What are you most weak in for verbal? I recommend the SC/CR guide from Manhattan. Also make sure you go through the OG Verbal Review.
