How much can I improve in two weeks? [#permalink] New post 01 Jun 2007, 13:48
Hi, first of all, thanks to those who have answered my previous question, you have been very helpful!

I took a practice test today and scored 570, Q32 and V37.

My test in on the 14th.

How much do you suppose i can improve, given the time, and what would your strategy be?

Thank you so much!

It's really hard to say. with two weeks left, that's not much time to substantially improve anything. If this was your first practice test cold, you might be able to improve a little bit more since this was your first time. But if you were already familiar with the test when you took it, your chances for improvement are not good.

But given the time you have, it's good to go over some quick techniques sinc eyou own't have time for any in depth reviewing. go over the types of questions for the diff sections and don't make any careless mistakes!

It all depends...have you already been studying for a while or did you get the 570 cold without any preps. If you got a 570 cold you might be able to do well.

I don't know what your target score is but if its 700 then you may want to postpone your test. Its a pretty tidy sum of money and if you aren't applying until this fall then there is no real rush to run out and take the test.

thanks!
actually i'm applying for a non-profit degree and their "successful applicants scored between 540 and 560, Q34, V33"
So i'm mostly wondering for myself, I'd like to take it up to 640 or something so that i'm confident.
I'm pretty sure the math mistakes i make are all in one of three topics

Just to update -
I continued studying, took another practice test today, scored 610, making some careless mistakes i could probably avoid in the "real" test enviroment.
Also had a ridiculous amount of time left in verbal (30 min!) and 10 min in math. Definitely should read slower :)
Test's on thursday :) Wish me luck :)

if your target score is about 640, you definitely can do it if you keep working for the rest of the time! good luck~
