I took my GMAT exam today and scored a horrible 320 with 27 in quant and barely made 10 in Verbal. Although my preparation was for 2 months, I regularly read the blog and questions posted by members. I was way to nervous after giving quant portion of the exam. I couldn't focus on verbal and it was my fault, which cost me $250 dollar today . Can someone please share tips and technique or plan i need to focus for retake GMAT. ?

That's heart-breaking. Sorry, I am. I suggest you build your basics first reading some strategic books for GMAT. Take a long-term plan. I hope you will be able to beat the GMAT subsequently. Best of luck!

What was your study plan prior to the test? Did you take advantage of all 8 MGMAT guides and the OG12? Based on that verbal score, I am going to take a shot and assume that English is your second language.

I would by the foundations of verbal and math to help you grasp the concepts better it is what I am currently reviewing now. I would def reccomend at least the verbal since that what you are struggling most with and the MGMAT gudies. This will most likely be over a$100 investment, but will be worth it once you reach your target score.

I hope this helps
