Stuck in the 500s [#permalink] New post 17 Jun 2013, 06:57
Hi Everyone,

I've been prepping for the GMAT since March and have my test scheduled for June 22nd. I wish I found this site earlier... :(

I only prepped using Kaplan, completed 8 practice tests but I am stuck in the 500's. The best ive scored is 580. I have completed the recommended target practice but have not seen any improvement.

My quant scores are generally in the 50 percentile range and my verbal fluctuates from 30 - 50%.
 
I have completed the addtional workshops and even in the challenging workshops, I score roughly 7/10 on the quizzes in adequate time. What could be the reason as to why these results aren't transferring over to my real tests?

What should I do now? Since I only have a few days left.

Hi,
First, relax.
Remember its just a test and you can postpone your test day.
Second, I suggest you take 2 days to search around the two forums here.
devote one day for Quant and one day for Verbal.

There are a lot of materials out there. BB, the founder of this forum made a sticky post with all materials available with reviews in each forum.
If I were you I would start there, build a plan and execute.

Good Luck!

I'm not looking to postpone since I'll lose the test fee at this point. I'm thinking I'll try it out....

You can postpone your exam with additional fee of $50.
In my eyes, its better to postpone it than loosing $250 and then paying again for another try but its up to you.

anyway, use my advice in previous post, im sure you will benefit from it.

Hi, I think you can postpone your exam with additional fee of $50.
My exam was on the 29th of this month, I postponed because I thought I needed more preparation to get my desired score!
There is alot of great material here which is very helpful for GMAT.
I suggest that you clear your head, take a deep breath and decide what you want to do.
The decision is upto you!

Thanks for the input, I'm not exactly panicking because I know I can write it again and have no I'll effects.

Im finding that I have timing issues in quant, so I must fix that. I checked MBA online and it says no refunds for cancellations within 7 days.

So I wrote the GMAT this past Saturday and got 540 (Q57,V30). I prepped for 3 months using Kaplan with most of my practice tests in the 500s.

What do you guys suggest me to do? Should I purchase the OG13 and possibly look into MGMAT Prep?

Thanks
