I want to earn my admissions and need help [#permalink] New post 07 Feb 2013, 16:43
I want to know the best way for me to approach my GMAT retake. I took the GMAT yesterday and scored a 580. I scored in the 75th percentile for verbal and 37th percentile for math.

Verbal is certainly my strength and I feel that I should have done a little better. Two nights ago, I took a Manhattan CAT and scored a 45 (99th percentile). During the test I felt rushed during the last 10 or so questions and I likely answered many of those wrong.

Math is certainly my weak area. I did not study anything for math. I took college calculus back in high school (over a decade ago) and often miss many "easy" questions on the practice tests.

Based on this brief information, what is the best way for me to improve my score? I work full-time but am off every weekend. I also get a week off for spring break which I can dedicate to GMAT studying. Thanks a million!

I was in the same position as you are, but I was weak in verbal and strong in math. My suggestion to you is to start off with the Manhattan Number Properties book (~$15). This book is great for small issues in arithmetic and will teach you helpful hints to help you remember basic concepts (odd + odd = even and odd x odd = odd) I would do about an hour to two hours every night after work until you have completed the book, then I would retest to see how your math score has improved.

Hope this helps.
