Today I gave my gmatprep exam2 and feel completely devastated. I was working hard and thought that I would improve my score from the first test which was 570 but instead I landed up on 470. Feeling completely reckless. Can someone provide me with any suggestion on ho to improve //

It very much depends on what you have been working on/where you are making your mistakes. Veritas Prep quotes John Wooden throughout its books when he says "Don't mistake activity for achievement." This means that you should constantly be gaining lessons from the practice problems that you are doing. There is a big difference between working hard only and working hard and smart.

When you get a question wrong, ask yourself 1) Why was it wrong? 2) Why did I pick it? and 3) Why is the right answer right? Always try to learn lessons from your problems, and after a while you will start to see patterns in your errors. It then becomes much easier to eliminate those errors.

Don't get discouraged!!!

I hope this helps!!!

I think you might need someone who has done well on the GMAT to give you personal one to one consultation. I would need to know more about you and your prep before I can help you with any tips for tangible improvements.
