Hey everybody!

This is my first post on here. I want to tell you my Gmat story so far. I hope the information provided can help others who are in the same position I am or was... Also I am trying to get some advice from you guys.

I started studying with the OG 13 and "Cracking the Gmat" by PR, 4 weeks ago. Those were the only 2 books I used. I studied 10 hrs a day, did a lot of practice questions and some CATs around 580 by PR and MGmat. Today, I had my official test and I scored 610 (math:40 / verbal:33)

4 weeks ago I started out with Gmat prep #1 and scored a 480 (math:35 / verbal:22) so I improved a lot already and got a 6xx score which I was aiming for. Now, that I know what to expect I am considering to retake the test because a 650 would make sure that I get in my favorite Masters Program.

My weaknesses are Data Sufficiency and Reading Comprehension.

I have 3 months from now on to study for my 2nd Gmat, however my internship starts in september so I will just be able to study at night and at weekends.
What do you think, what books should I get to make further improvements and what strategy should I follow now. If you need any other information please let me know.

And before i forget it, I want to thank this forum for all the information I could get so far, it really helped a lot.
