I´m not very sure where to start. At this moment I must say I am very desmotivated . I got 580 on my GMAT ( 38 on tmath) which was the very same score I had originally and cannot understand what happened. I have been studying for the GMAT for 4 months already, two hours daily on average.... and on the last 3 full test I had scored between 630-660 (around 43-44 math, 32- 33 verbal). What happened to me on the GMAT? This is my third time taking it so I´m familiar with the environment...
Since I am from Chile and so English is not my first language, I had focused hard on math...right now I don´t know where to start because I don´t know where I made my mistakes. I actually improved on verbal, and showed nothing on math. I certainly do not want to give up but I feel I have wasted my time.
Please has anything like this happened to anyone? Does anyone recommend me to retake the test? How long should I wait? I wanted to apply for a November round and so if I retake the exam it would have to be by the end of October, 6 weeks away...any suggestions? Material to recommend?

Hi Andreaa
Assuming that you have done enough of OG Math (atleast twice with an understanding of why you got some wrong and why you got some right), to improve in Math I sugest -
a) do as many re-installs of GMATPREP as possible because each re-install gives you atleast 75% new math problems (for upto 8 re-installs that I have done). You may want to chose to do just Math if you are ok in verbal.
b) While doing the math, flag every question that you "guessed" or could solve but took long time to solve.
c) At the end, take screenshots of each of the questions that you got wrong and the ones which you guessed but got right.
d) Come back to GMAT club math forum, do a search on "GMATPREP PS" and "GMATPREP DS". This should give you most of the GMATPREP problems and your selected problems may already be there. Go through them to understand the logic of solving them. If your problems are not there, post them here and you can expect some great solutions from folks around.

All the best.
