Same situation- Very low 500, lost concentration [#permalink]

I got the same situation than yourself,
I just did the GMAT few days before, and I got a very low score of 500 (Quant 44, Verbal 16). I am an IT Engineer from Montreal, working full time since 5 years.
During the Exam, I decided to guess on the some Quantitive questions in order to be able to finish the 37 Questions. I remember getting some very hard data suffic. ones like prime numbers and squares of the primes etc... I probably decided to guess on 4 questions and succeeded to finish the quant section on time.
I was very tired during the verval section. The section started with an Easy Misplaced Modifier question. It was getting harder and harder after. I even remember getting a Extra long bold face question. They even gave me two RC passages one after the other. All what I remember is I wanted to finish this exam very fast and I wasn't patient at the end. I finished with a very low 16 on the verbal where I beleive that I diserve between a 25 and a 30 when I am more concentrated.
I am planing to retake the GMAT before oct 1st, I am only working on my weakness right now,
