. . .
Thanks in advance.
but don't worry! it happens. i too am struggling with same issue (always was 700+ in practice but 660 in real test)
1) DONT apply in first. i have done enough research and there is no difference between 1st and 2nd round results. Plus if you start APP now you will have a load on your mind (as you did less than your potential). Its not healthy frame of mind to be in. I suggest (also had discussed save with bb, GC's founder) take GMAT within 6 weeks. so that your concepts are fresh. .. you just need to build up on your base
2) there is nothing like that. Schools take the best score. period (i have checked this with many schools). ONE GOOD TIP: in next exam do not choose and school. if you score well, then have your new scores sent to the desired school, and in case you don't, simply don't worry. schools will never get to know your new score (its correct. i have done enough home work on this aspect)
3) My gut feel about three ways to have best performance in three sections:
RC: GMAT PILL
CR: POWER SCORE
these are perfect combinations. another IMP thing: just stick to OG + VR. don't use any new source. even if you know answers re-do. Just 'learn from your errors' and also 'review the questions which you got correct'. keep doing so . . stick to the simple strategy. you don;t need to do anything complex
6 weeks and you will achieve your true potential.
hope it helps
