Before we can really help you sort this out, the GMATCLUB community would need to know how you've worked on your geometry thus far. What books/courses have you read/taken. The MGMAT guides and Powerscore bibles are both real good for ensuring you've got the basic necessities down pat.

I would recommend the MGMAT guides, and even if you don't want to spend the money on all 8 of them, if you just pick up one focused on geometry, you get all the tests. Certainly worth it. I would recommend these as I've heard that they will give you the necessities to build from the bottom up and develop a strength where it was previously a weakness.

Here's the link to picking it up on amazon:
http://www.amazon.com/Geometry-Strategy ... 852&sr=1-1

for less then 15 bucks, certainly worth your while to focus on geometry if that is your only concern.

Don't you love amazon?
That's what I did as well.
Actually, all books un-associated with professors were from amazon too.
