Dear GMAT experts, I need your help and suggestion!
I took a GMAT test yesterday morning in HK. The score is extreme low (580 Q48V23), which shocks me! OMG~
I totally spent 3 months in preparing GMAT, even took a Kaplan course
in the first month. After the course, I praticed OG11
(Q & V) at home and went through them around 2 times before the test. Moreover, I also took serveral Kaplan
and GMAT Prep, which are scored as follows:-Kaplan
Prep 01 580Kaplan
Prep 02 590Kaplan
Prep 03 610Kaplan
Prep 04 590Kaplan
Prep 05 610Kaplan
Prep 06 630Kaplan
Prep 07 610
(P.S. Some people in the forum said that Kaplan Prep is more difficult than real test. So we can add 50-80 scores by ourselves.)
GMAT Prep 01 620 (Q49V26)
GMAT Prep 02 700 (Q49V38)
From above scores, you can see that my average score of Prep is higher than my final GMAT score. That is why I was so shocked to see the terrible&unbelievable score in the screen yesterday!!!What is wrong with me???!!!
But anyway, I plan to take 2nd GMAT test. After alayzing my weaks (verbal score is pretty low), I want to spend more time to improve vocabulary and grammar, which can help me to better understand the aritcles and increase hte correction rate of SC.
May I ask GMAT experts to give me more guidance?
1. I plan to re-take GMAT test on early July. Within one month, what is the most efficient way to improve?
2. Since there is a new sector--IR, how could I practice it and how much time I should spend on it?
Thanks again for your kind help and guidance.
