This will be my third time taking the test. The first time I got a 660, the second time I should have canceled my score....didn't get much sleep and did worse! 570.

My plan is to:
- complete all of the problems in the official guide, as many times as I can
- take several practice tests to make sure my timing is ok

What else should I do? Is this too risky? I've got to clear 700.

Buddy,

Nothing is impossible. Sometime back I had written about my friend who score 590 in first attempt & 780 in second attempt.

I suggest you to read the posts of members who have scored well, if possible, send them private message/mail & take advice. I'm sure people here will definitely help you :)

Most important, never give up!

Cheers,
Vivek

If you have a 660 in the first attempt, I am sure you know what it takes to get that kind of a score. You just need to focus a little bit more on some of the weaker areas and get to that 7** magic number. I am sure you would have hit that number in your practice tests.

Good Luck and I am sure you will be there in no time.

very open ended question, but if you scored 660 once 700 is not far away. Three weeks with good planning and excellent execution should lead you to 7xx club.

In terms of whether or not you can hit 700+, I would look at your practice scores for the answer. If you have hit 700+ on at least 20-30% of your practice tests (including MGMAT, PR, and GMATPrep, but not Kaplan), then I would say you have a shot. But if you have not done this, I would say getting a 570, 660 and then pulling off a 700+ in just 3 weeks is a huge stretch and I would encourage you to take a bit more time (5-6 weeks) to ensure you really get the core concepts and timing down perfectly.

I did 640 to 730 in 5 weeks. It can be done. I would however urge you to just postpone and prepare properly if you can. Why rush it?
