So I'll be taking the GMAT on Tuesday and I have been feeling fairly confident with my studies but just had a bad (based on what I'm aiming for) practice exam (GMAT Prep). I got a 710 but it was heavily weighted by my verbal score of 44, I only scored a 42 quant. My quant scores on Manhattan tests have been steady around 44 or 45 although my last Manhattan on my last Manhattan test I scored a 49 (the week after I took one and scored 43, but terribly hungover so I've not been counting it, still better than what I did today).
I know I'm capable of scoring a 48 or a 49 on the Quant and 10 out of the 12 questions I missed today were questions I could have gotten right, but I don't want to mess my Q score up by having a bad day and making stupid mistakes. So I a wide open right now to any recommendations about how to steady myself on this.
I'm thinking of re-taking just the quant portion tomorrow to see how I do. Would that be a good idea? I am also finishing out the OG Quant
Review book over the weekend, I still have about 50 PS and 50 DS to go and I wanted to use them to keep me focused during these last few days.
Also, if it's important, I missed the first 2 questions on Quant today. Looking back on them they were both very easy, but I overthought them. How much could this initial downset have affected my score? After this, the questions I missed were sporadic and spread out throughout the exam.
Thanks a million!
To those who have struggled with them, the mountains reveal beauties that they will not disclose to those who make no effort. That is the reward the mountains give to effort. And it is because they have so much to give and give it so lavishly to those who will wrestle with them that men love the mountains and go back to them again and again. The mountains reserve their choice gifts for those who stand upon their summits. (Sir Francis Younghusband)
