I have been studying the MGMAT materials for the quite a few months and I took the real GMAT a couple of weeks ago. I received the worst score yet 440 (Q-29/V-25), something horrible like that. My practice exams went as follows:
MGMAT - 5/21/2008 460 (Q-21/V-32)
MGMAT - 6/21/2008 460 (Q-27/V-27)
MGMAT - 8/16/2008 540 (Q-32/V-33)
MGAMT- 10/26/2008 580 (Q-42/V-29)
Practice Test MBA.com – 11/10/2008 490
Real GMAT - 11/25/2008 440
Now keep in mind tha previous practice exams I did not spend very much time on the essays and I did postpone my time at certain points but not very extensively. I am very frustrated because with the MGMAT books
and OG guides I learned a lot of concepts but I didn't capitalize on them during the real test. I need advice because the second round deadlines are in April for the schools that I want to apply to and I need to get in the low 600's to remain competitive. Should I hold off until the following year or get private tutoring and still try to get into B-school this year. I am stuck and I don't know what to do. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
