Hey everyone,

Just got back from a test and I scored a 680, after doing the Manhattan course, all the practice CATs and the GMAT CATs.

My highest CATs included one 720 and 3-4 700s.

I am a bit disappointed as I wanted to get 710+ (I know I should definitely thought I would get that given my CATs were not consistently 710+, but I took a risk on it).

I am not planning to apply this fall, but a year from this fall, so I figure I have enough time to put some more time into studying try again! My math was very very low (65th percentile), while my verbal was pretty good (89th percentile). Does anyone have any tips about how to improve my GMAT math??? I went through the OG and manhattan books already but could obviously go through a bit more. I am just a little frustrated because I mainly focused on math during my studying, so obviously I am doing something wrong! (and on the SATs, math was my strength).

Any advice would be welcomed! Especially in regards to how far from now I should take the test and whether retaking is a waste of time or something I could improve. Thank you so much!!!!

Doing problems alone isn't always helpful. When you struggle in a topic even after hours of material and practice problems/tests, there is usually an underlying problem the person is not aware of.

I'd say step back and review math on its own, not in a GMAT context. Jeff Sackmann's total gmat math is a very good resource for this (very detailed), there are also free resources online:
