Should I retake the GMAT now? [#permalink] New post 05 Nov 2006, 16:25
Hi guys,

I am an active reader of this forum and use it to double check my CR and SC answers. I really appreciate everyone's input and willingness to help each other out.

I have taken the GMAT 2 times already (Aug and Oct 06) and unfortunately ended up with the same score Q 47 , V 30 - 640. I was extremely disappointed with the second result as I worked really hard for it and felt like I could easily get a 680+. As you can see, Verbal is my weakness (atleast for the GMAT) even though I don't really consider it a weakness. I felt like I needed to make some improvements in SC and went through the entire SC1000 doc (80% accuracy). I also went through about 10 CR sets from CR1000. I took 4 gmatprep and 1 powerprep tests and my scores ranged from 700-750. I already reviewed the OG 11th and also taken some practice Verbal tests on 800score. So I felt fairly confident going in the second time.

However, I felt like nerves might have gotten the best of me during my second attempt but I do not want to make any lame excuses. I decided to give it one more shot and am taking it for the LAST time on Dec 1. I was wondering if you guys have any advice on how to approach verbal this time around? I felt like I got burnt out last time and do not want to spend a lot of time studying. I want to go in with a carefree attitude and maybe that might take some pressure off of me. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Good luck to others who are taking/retaking the GMAT.

Based on how well you've done on the practice tests, it does sound like maybe just a little bit of nerves on test day that's holding you back.

If I were you I would take a few more practice tests and then don't stress about the test too much. You have great practice test scores, if you just relax you'll do great on the test. Good luck!
