sorry to hear that. Some tips:
error logs - seems you know your weak areas in quant - now you need to figure out the prob with V
devote time to verbal - a 20/80 time split is good.
Use MGMAT books and powerscore CR if you havent done so.
if you never scored over 30 in V it is pretty much a given you wont get a 700+ test day since you need probably at least a 35V to have any chance really...
Keep up the spirit and study hard!

Hey Rashi,

it's okay man. It happens to everyone. Instead of letting it get you down, i think you should let it motivate you to do better as it seems to have done so. PM me if you want particular advice regarding prep to 700.

Seems like the MGMAT word translations will do wonders for you.

I would definitely suggest MGMAT SC and Powerscore CR to you. These are books that address the mechanics of the question and teach you how to utilize logic effectively to answer a question, instead of teaching you tips and tricks (though those are included as well). For Math, I think it might have just been a timing problem, so practice more and use an error log with a timer and monitor your weaknesses. :)
