PREP Help: I scored 380 next exam is in a month [#permalink] New post 26 Mar 2013, 15:11
Please bare with me.

Here is my story. I started preparing for the GMAT about around September. At the time i had forgotten all about MATH so i hired a personal tutor and managed to re-learn everything, from the basics to 600+ questions. I was meeting the tutor about twice a week for 2 hours each session, and was doing homework for up to 15 hours a week. I had accomplished so much and felt satisfied. However, due to personal issues i had stopped studying from mid December to mid January  "about 6 weeks" and when i got back to it, i felt extremely rusty so i took the GMAT Prep test to see where i stood and i scored a horrible 350 ... I was devastated with the result so i really took it up a notch and was doing 5 hours a day for the next 2 weeks. Then i took the MGMAT test and score 530 i felt fairly happy, so i scheduled to take my first GMAT test on the 15th of March and continued studying till then, focusing on my weaknesses in quant by referring to the notes and resources provided by my tutor. however 3 weeks before the exam date i came down with a severe flu and skin condition that i couldn't really study at all, i was cured about 4 days before the exam, and studied for about 6 hours each day "i know its a bad call, but i had no choice" I went took the test afterwards and score 380 :( ... I got really depressed. I took a week off and started studying again. Now i have scheduled an exam for the 25th of April as the deadline for the school i intend to join is the 3rd of May. So i have about a month to prepare and focus on verbal as well.

I have the following material:-
-Manhattan SC book
-GMAT OG 
-Other PDF resources provided by my tutor. 
-5 MGMAT tests
-1 GMAT PREP test

I would appreciate any type of help. And i really hope i didn't bore any one with my long article, or breached any forum rules, as its my first time ever to post anywhere. :(. Also, in parallel i'm going to take the GRE test, while briefly learning about their questions styles and not deeply looking into it as i am with the GMAT. MY goal is to score a mere 550 which really seems impossible at this point. I WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR HELP!! Books, tutors ..if you could recommend anything will be highly grateful.

Honestly, I think it would benefit you to speak with someone about potential tutoring. There is a lot of work that you have to do to get to your score in a short period of time. Expert help gives you the best chance at this. Happy to have a free talk with you if you want - PM me.
