I have a relatively weird question.
I've been studying for my GMAT for about 5 months now. I gave the exam a month a go and scored a 690 (Q44, V40). Although I reached the exam with a heavy burn out due to 12 hour days at work + 2 hours of GMAT and 9 hour GMAT sessions during both days of the weekend this score was a deception (specially math) since I know I have the knowledge to do a lot better and I'm doing a lot of unnecessary errors in the math section.
The thing is that after this and after an additional month of hard study, I still have not being able to lower my quant error below 12 per test. By re doing every wrong question and seeing that I know the content and I have very little knowledge questions I'm starting to think I have an "attitudinal" problem. At first I though that the error where a result of me getting very tense during the practice exams, but I think I managed to relax little bit more and the error ares still there.
This is getting quite frustrating as I think there nothing worse than knowing you can give a really good exam and not being able to do it when it counts
Has anyone experienced this? How did you deal with it? How did you conquer this trap?
Thanks in advance for the help
Hi! Have you tried using additional sources?
What are the sources you're using now?
I too am in the same boat. I have come to a point where I already memorize OG.
However, I am now tapping on other sources (BTG, GMATClub, Manhattan, Kaplan
Try doing the same.
I'am using other sourced besides the OG but actually I think I'm under relatively high degree of burn out and need to work on other aspects of test taking.
Does this happend to other GMAT Club Members?
It would be great to hear other stories. Being the GMAT not only a knowledge centric test but also a time and stress management examination this must have happend to many of the members of the forum.
Thanks for the reply and hope everything improves
