I really feel for you.

I guess first thing I would do is take a break of at least a week - just relax, go on a vacation or party or something. Just get out of the hurtful depression.

After you've had some time away (at least a week - maybe more). Come back to it. Think of the gains that a better score will get you. Motivate yourself.

Then take a look at the score, try to remember what could have gone wrong during the test and start building each area (eg, SC, CR etc.) from scratch. If I were doing it for a second time, I would not be in a hurry either. I would take my time and really build up 2-3 areas, then 2-3 areas and so on.

Just some suggestions.

First thing - don't compare your score to others on this site! Each person has his or her own capabilities and expectations.

I know how you feel. I was expecting at least a 550+ but got a 480 (Q27, V28) on my first attempt last week. I've taken this week off to clear my head and get motivated again so I'm going to start back up tomorrow. I've been more active on this board and I think it has helped. Everyone here has a great attitude and offer great advice.

My advice to you is take some time off and clear your mind. Then come back with a furious vengeance to conquer the test! Keep an error log and go to town. Start with the basics and go from there.

Hang in there and don't give up! People generally say to plan for 2-3 attempts before you get the score you want so if you think about it, we just took a "warm up" test Very Happy
