I took the GMAT back in July and scored a 420 (35 percentile in Verbal and 10 Percentile in Math). I did take the Kaplan course
which is really helpful, and I study seriously for about a month, averaging about 4 to 6 hours a day. I was scoring between 550 and 620 on my CATs from Kaplan
. I felt ready and pretty confident and to this day, i just dont know what happened and why i failed. I have never failed anything in my life and it was quiet devastating for me since I couldn't get in to Graduate school and lost a year of my life because of the GMAT. I am planning on taking it around June 10th so i have 5 weeks. I am really hoping I will beat the GMAT this time, but I am just not motivated and feel very discouraged. I just feel that I cant pass it and get the score i need. I consider myself as a smart person but the GMAT makes me feel like a dummy and kills my confidence. I always screw up the Quantitative portion which i don't understand, i have always been good in math. Please help me and give me any insights you might have:)

Keep your head up! You've done significantly better on practice exams so focus on glass half full. Look carefully over the types of questions you got wrong. Ask yourself why you get them wrong and what you could have done to not make that mistake in the future. Are you thinking efficiently and effectively? Open yourself to help from others who have been successful. How is your thinking different from their thinking?
Don't forget the psychological aspects of the exam--many people underestimate these components: http://www.gmatpill.com/about/studying- ... trategies/
Good luck--you can do it!
