Sorry , But I have no idea where to post this query.

I have rescheduled my GMAT couple of times. And now I am planning to give it in next 2 weeks.

Today I scored 340. I am really disappointed. What should I do to improve my score in 15 days?

Any suggestion will be a great help.

Thanks

I would not recommend taking the GMAT again in two weeks if you just scored in the 300s. Work the material, starting from a basic book, and improve your test taking strategy. Retaking the test over and over again with poor results is only going to frustrate you and make it hard to achieve a really great score.

Do you have any sense why you scored poorly? Were you constantly running out of time, were the early questions too difficult, etc.? If you have a sense for what your greatest challenge is moving forward, you can probably make significant improvements by focusing on that first. For example, if you're failing on the first few questions, it doesn't matter how well you do later in the test -- you will be sunk by screwing up the early ones.

One idea is what Skitalets advised.
Another could be taking the test so that you can have a real time experience that would be a grate way to boost your understanding of gmat. But whatever you do, do with strong purpose.
