Can anyone help explain my scores? I don't understand why my scores are going down! I've been practicing for about 2 months. This is ridiculous.

Looking at your GMATprep scores [560 and 570]

You're score is fairly stable and unchanged.

If you've been studying during the period between these two scores, then you most likely have to change the way you study.

Find better resources or start detecting your weaknesses and work on them.

I had about a week of studying between the two GMATPrep tests? Thoughts?

Side question - Is RC and CR weighted more than SC? I heard it is? Also, do you agree with the theory that scoring in the beginning of the test is much more important then the remainder?

a week of studying ? no wonder you got the same score.

If you're looking for a 700+ score, then think about at least a month of dedicated studying.

GMAT is NOT easy, yet NOT Impossible.

I think all different types of verbal questions are weighted equally the same, or at least very close.

I believe the first 10-15 questions are "relatively" more important than the rest of the test, but Not much much more important. to get a good score you have to consistently answer questions correctly throughout the test.

This was my stats for the last PR test:

Right/Wrong
PS-->12/9
DS-->12/5
SC-->11/4
RC-->10/3
Arg-->8/5

I don't think thats to bad. What is your thoughts? I've been studying 8+ hours a day for this test. I believe maybe I'm beginning to see some diminishing returns from studying to much.

Also, you think I should ignore the PR practice tests? Some say they are good judges, but I'm finding their scoring system might be off. Yes, I'm looking for a 700.
