Ok GMAT Score, Bad Split [#permalink] New post 11 Sep 2012, 17:18
I took the GMAT and received a 680 which is ok, my issue was I was 41 Q and V, my question is where do I go from here? I'm applying for masters in finance/masters in management and for the MSFs I feel that 41 will drag down my application.

Does anyone have any tips in how to prepare for taking the GMAT a second time? Also are there any good resources on roots, squares and decimals, I feel that plus geometry are the weakest areas for me. Should I spend anytime on verbal beyond simply reviewing?

Why is your score bad? A 680 is quite good, while the verbal and quant scores are balanced. See this link for guidance on a retake: should-i-retake-gmat-thread-retaking-gmat-strategies-83339.html

As for materials to overcome the specific topics that you mentioned, Manhattan has guidebooks on those subjects. Also look into Jeff Sackman's math sets for practice problems on those areas.

And you should absolutely spend time on verbal beyond reviewing. Always try to adopt an aggressive, active mindset toward the GMAT. The way that you phrased your prospective verbal strategy - to "simply review" - makes it sound like you plan to passively go through the motions. This can get you into to trouble.
