keep doing what you were doing before?

You're 4 points in quant and verbal away from that magical 80 percentile score. This will get you in the 690-710 range. In the 650+ difficulty range, problems that can mix topics do (multiple grammar rule and meaning in SC, mixing topics in quant, more obscure RC, etc.).

To break into 700, you need to hone your skills and figure out where your weakest point is (geometry, SC, RC, algebra, word translations, etc) and work from your weakest up.

Usually the verbal kills me. If you feel ok with all quant problems then go for verbal.

If SC is one of the issues that still is in your error log - prefect! Easy to fix. Moving up from your weakest verbal spot could get you faster into the big numbers.

Say math is +1, because you did well. Rule out some verbal mistakes and with a +7 your already on a sweet 700.

But to emphazise mohater: Look for the weakest spot, thats the fastest way to score better. If its RC, maybe tackle the next one, because I am currently trying to work on it (pain in the a**).

Cheers

This should help: http://gmatclub.com/forum/all-about-the-error-log-11754.html

And some nice examples: http://gmatclub.com/forum/gmat-error-log-86232.html

Already going through a few questions should give you a good idea which ones you usualy get wrong.
