As far as your baseline, your abilities are somewhere around a 580 right now (average of your three scores). In the future, GMATPrep CATs are the most accurate measure of your abilities and when using third party CATs, try to stick with the same set. MGMAT are great because you can get six for about $15.
And that is a good point from GMAT Pill

I was planning on taking the first GMATPrep CAT this weekend to get a better gauge of where I'm at. Or should I wait a week? My test is scheduled for June 14th, so time's flying by.
For MGMAT Prep, I can't seem to find any strategy guide $15 that also has the CATs. http://www.manhattangmat.com/store.cfm

CATs of which 2 I've taken, 12 Veritas

I'm shooting for a 680. Don't know how realistic that is in such a short time
