Please advice! last 4 days and my prep score disheartened [#permalink] New post 01 Sep 2013, 09:39
My GMAT prep test score is a bit unusual. I had relatively low expectations with the following practice test scores.

GMAT Prep 1 (June 10th) – 530 (Q49 V14) --> after quant prep
GMAT Prep 2 (June 16th) – 610 (Q50 V23) --> after Sentence correction prep
GMAT Prep 1 (July 21st) – 640 (Q50 V27) --> after all parts of Verbal prep
MGMAT CAT #1 (Aug 18th) – 720 (Q51 V37) --> (didn't do AWA) after hard practice and practice
MGMAT CAT #2 (Aug 25th) – 690 (Q51 V34) --> Full-test with same conditions
MGMAT CAT #3 (Aug 29th) – 670 (Q48 V33) --> (Quant score is lower because of my careless about time management )
GMAT Prep 2 (Sep 2th (Today)) – 620 !!! (Q50 V23) ---> Really disheartened !!

My Actual GMAT Exam is on this Sep 6th ! but today result have made my mental health really bad. (actually a bit crying out)

Today (my time) is Sunday, I've only 4 days left before the read test (on Friday). Thursday is going to be relax day, could you guys please recommend what I should do on the other 3 days? (Take another mock exam / Review all of Verbal and Quant / or just rest) I really don't know what to do.

Please suggest me, Thanks a lot.

PS: My target score is 660+

The truth is you should probably postpone the test. The verbal score on this test is fairly consistent with that of the other gmat prep tests. There is no reason to think you would score high on verbal if you took the test in four days. You need more prep time for verbal. Four days is not enough. I wish you the best. I'm sure you can do much better than v23 with more prep time.

Hi BB, I got 630 (Q49 V27). I've a bad luck on test day, as I got food-poisoning and can't fully focus on the test.

Anyway, I appointed the next test on 15 OCT, about 5 weeks from now. Could you Please advice me how to rise my Verbal score? My worst part is Reading Comprehension (I'm non-native speaker). I've done OG13 questions twice (both verbal and quant), go through SC Grail & CR Bible Twice.

Next time, 1 day before test, spend some time with yourself. Just sit and dont look at the books or materials... 1-2 hours... concentrate your thoughts, and revise what you have learnt; in your mind. This definitely helps. Then you will figure out what u remember and what not. And those will be the exact same knowledge that you are going to remember on test day.
This helps to calm down, believe me.
