Hi Guys,
I'm new to the Gmatclub. I found you guys in search of some info on how to get my score up. I took the test twice. The 1st time, 6 mos ago, I took it cold w no studying or strategy & scored a 570. Well, that was enough to get me into a back up school, but it wasn't enough. So I did the veritas program & studied for about 2 months. Well, I def feel like I gained a ton of knowledge, scored mid-600's on the practice tests (none lower than 620, highest was 690), and yesterday scored only a 600 on the real thing. I was a little tired & took it early in the morning, but I wanted to see if anyone had an oppinion, bc I'm very confused as far as building a new strategy. I don't see how studying for 7 hours a day for 2 months could only push me up 30 points, and if thats the case, I'm uncertain as to how I can push it to 700.

Any suggestions would be great guys....

this is one of the problems most of the guys around here have at the moment. only thing i can say is to practice practice and practice again. you did not put your breakdown for both of the scores. you should be able to identify your weak and strong sides. so let's see that and start from there.
good luck

570 to 600 after Veritas Prep ! Did you get stuck with a problem that took too much time? Any postmortem assessments?

GMAT exam from what I have gone through is obviously what I call intelligent practicing.

What you'll need to do is start analyzing how you do in the practice exams. At least one per week and then on the exam week at least two exams to get you into swing of things.

IF it takes you 3 hours to complete the exams you'll need to spend additional 3 hours just understanding your % hits, identify your weakness and then build proficiency in you weak areas and then check out if there was any improvement.

Furthermore, I have heard good thing about Veritas Literature and teaching. I am sure you have access to the recordings. Identify the classes, which focus on your weakness and review the recordings again. Don't read solutions to the problem. Take a crack at it first and then give it a shot.

Good Luck
Rohit
