What the hell is going on? I don't get too much time to study due to work pressure. Maybe 30-40 mins a day and couple of hrs over weekend, but I've been focusing and steadily increasing my score. I plan to do the test end of August. Problem is..I feel I'm stuck now!

Did an ETS paper test - got 690
Did PowerPrep1 - got 710
Did MGMAT CAT2 - got 690
Did Princeton CAT2 - got 690

WT?!!! I seem to screw up in one place or the other and miss the 700. It's Quant sometimes, It's verbal the other. Did any of you face this?

In terms of prep, I haven't ploughed through OG11 completely yet, and I have another 20 challenges to go. I haven't had time to go thru the SC1000/RC1000 either :( hopefully that practice should bump me up at least 10-20 points. I'm planning to take 5-6 days off end of month to just focus and practice.

Any tips/experiences that are similar?

hi necromonger,

stuck in a similar boat. with a job and other pressures taking precedence i have been a little behind in terms of daily prep. sometimes i can avg. 2 hours, others its between 45m-1hr. just started my prep roughly a month back.

im stuck at 650 as my scores were 660 (powerprep), 650 (pp2), 640 (pp), 570 (princeton!). verbal is my bugbear everytime.

where are u getting stuck at? i guess it must be more practice that helps.
