Re-take strategy [#permalink] New post 08 Aug 2010, 07:55
Hi,

This is my first time writing on the forum. I took my first exam last week after 2 months of hard studying and did not get as high as I wanted. I got a 610 but want a 700.

My practice tests before the exam were, 550, 630, 640, 630, 670, and lastly 590. I truly believe I am capable of a 700 and need help.

What are the best ways to study?
How many hours a day should I study?
What techniques are best?
Is a 90 point jump really possible?
What does it take (hours) to be able to get this 90 point jump!

I would love some advice BB and anyone else!!!! Thank you.

Buu

I have only taken practices, but i remember my first score ever was a 510, months ago. I have done 5 hours of study a day for 3 months and usually pull somewhere in the lower 700's, albeit, practice tests. Just keep at it!
