So I practiced for about 2 months. Took both OG exams, w/ 720 (43/40) and 730 (48/42) took the second one only once so I thought I was good to go.

During the real test today, took too long on early math problems. Later problems seemed much harder than on either of the OG's. I ended up having a lot of questions left with just a little time.

Verbal I did slightly worse than I usually do, but not so poorly that I am terribly concerned by it.

Wondering if I could get some input; I dont really know what my specific weaknesses are.

Anybody? I will almost definitely retake, but debating how soon to.

I have at least 3 years left at my job, so there's no real pressure there, but I also know that I'm in a fairly decent spot from prep and could probably benefit from hitting math really hard.

Also, what are the absolute best math materials to study w/? I have OG and Kaplan premiere, but haven't heard much in the way about manhattan math prep so I dont know what other guides to buy for that. How about OG Quantiative review. How would I incorporate flashcards w/ math?

Thanks in advance.

looks like you just had a bad day. i was scoring in the 700-730 range on gmatprep software and scored 640 on my first test. i signed up for a test 1 month later and got the 710 score. i would sign up again and go over concepts and do more and more practice probs

dont let the pressure get to u either..

43/40 doesn't get you 720. Perhaps a typo? Either way, if you've scored 700+ twice on GMATPrep, then you're good to go.

I'm not 100% certain about the 43/40 I suppose it coulda been the other way around maybe 40/43 verbal maybe something else altogether. I'm certain on the 730 breakdown. Anyway. Do I retake in 31 days or wait six months since I have a bunch of time? It looks like I significantly underperformed in quant and slightly underperformed in verbal compared to averages. I have a thread posted in the GMAT area asking about the best math materials to prep for speed, as this was the major issue I did somewhat poor time mgmt 5 questions or so to go w/ about 2.5 mins left.

I'm locked into my job (military) for at least 3 years. I could tell ya more about my background if you think it would better help illustrate my situation and what I should do.

GMATPrep probably inflates your score a little because you don't feel the real exam pressure and you might have done some questions before.

it's a good grade, don't be bored about that. What about investing in some quiz banks or challenges? maybe help. For the moment I am not the best to give you advise, because I did not take the test yet. But is some support is helpful you have mine.

I scored 700+ 3+ times (GMATprep) and scored a 640. However, I have seen other scores same as mine with a 650 (42/38). I was robbed 10 points!
