Just scored a 400 - totally frustrated [#permalink] New post 27 Aug 2012, 16:07
I took my test today and i scored 380, 400, 440, and 480 on my prep tests. I was wanting to score at least 500. I got 24 on verbal and 21 on the math sections.

I know i need to get both scores up but any thoughts on how to do this I have to take the test again before december 1st and was hoping to reach a target of 520+ any advice would be appreciated.

A fresh start will really help you; just clean your mind for some days and forget everything that happened until now.
Start like you never heard of GMAT. I am sure you can improve well above 500. Cheer up!

Also, You can check out the link to the materials I used for my gmat preparations in my signature (how to start gmat preparations)

I used all the MGMAT study guides mainly focusing on the QUANT reasoning, and math problems, My main problem in the verbal seemed to be the CR so I focused on those 2.

Now with a score that low i know i need to review it all again just not sure where to start because it all needs to improve a bunch to get my score up that much.

I hope that explains a little better
