I just took my GMAT today, and needed a 470, only to score a 440. I simply ran out of time on verbal, and had 2 minutes to answer the last 5 questions. Its funny because Ive done 6 full length practice tests, and never has that happened.

I dont want to linger on this, and would like to take the test again tomorrow if possible.
Is there a set amount of time in which I can take the test again?

honestly,

as long as it takes for you to improve. if you go home and play xbox and drink beer all day and feel bad about yourself, then probably never. if you go home, take the initiative, get down to work, and study. i don't see why you couldn't go back out there in 31 days and knock it out of the ballpark. hell, that's what i did

Thanks. I did all the due diligence, and really worked at it the last 3 months.
Ive been consistently scoring between 500 and 550 on the practice tests.

I guess Im just having a difficult time controlling my stress and anxiety when Im sitting in front of the computer on test day. I can;t believe I made no improvements on verbal, especially since I understand the concepts so much more then 4 months back. It's really disheartening. I have alot of room for improvement, but still wasnt able to show any. Does anyone have FREE tests that really mimic the actual tests. The GMAC cd's haven't done the trick for me.

I also ran out of time when taking the real thing which never happened. I retook today, 2 months after the first time. Just keep your time quicker, and you will do much better.

Practice these tips to help with test day stamina and anxiety: 10-tips-to-improve-your-score-app-with-no-extra-studying-124393.html

Also, you have to wait 31 days between tests.

If you'd like a cheap set of practice tests I would recommend purchasing 1 Manhattan GMAT book... that can run you around 20 bucks and it will come with 6 practice tests. Good luck! and come back with any questions.

With just a little more time and effort, you can put the GMAT behind you.

I used the OG, Kaplan series, and Manhattan GMAT. I felt that Manhattan really mimic the tests well. I will tell you, the juice is definitely worth the squeeze. will i ever go back and study for it again? negative. but am i proud that I am done with it and now it's behind me? yup. damn right

also, is there suppose to be changes to the GMAT next year or something?
