4 days till test - what to do?  [#permalink]

I have four days until my test and my quant score has been inconsistent .
Moreover work is killing me these days and I have to write tests starting 00.00 AM OR 1.00 AM in the night.
My Quant is generally strong although last night's practice test was horrible in both areas.

I scored 680 (47,37) :cry: - PowerPrep1. I took this test starting 01.10 AM.(maybe thats why I answered 7 wrong. 4 of them were silly mistakes.)

I have been studying for 5 months now .I've gotten a 620 to 710 on MGMAT (In MGMAT6 I got 710 (51 ,37)), and 600/680 on GmatPrep.

I wonder how come I never got 700 in GmatPrep ? MGMAT is considered more tough right?
Inconsistancy is my biggest concern at the moment.(Moreover , I am a novice astrologer and I know that I have no manner of luck on the test day. Whatever I will score ,I will score out of hard wok I have put in so far. Maybe I shouldnt think about all this right now.)

Anyway, should I try to find more quant questions to practice on (I've done everything in the OG 10/11/ MGMAT) or should I keep taking MGMAT tests (I am planning to reset the test pool , as I have already taken 6 of them.)?

I really just want a 800, please advise.

Given you only have 4 days, I would suggest you postpone the test if you want to assure yourself a high quant score. However, at this point I would just go over previous errors and keep doing problems you got wrong. Unless they are all careless errors, it's probably a certain type of question that you have trouble with.

You'll actually have to pay a fee and lose the $250 deposit on the test if you cancel this late. Just take the test and make the most of it :) If you don't hit the score you're hoping for, try again in a month. You've already been studying for a long time, so you're probably due for an official score.

Increasing your verbal score will have the biggest impact on your overall score.

I have decided not to worry too much about the GmatPrep score at the moment.

My Quant seems strong looking at the MGMAT scores. I have decided to review all the wrong ones(Quant) and put in more time in Verbal practice.

Powerscore / MGMAT SC revision will be good.

I am not in mood to postpone test / cancel the score. Lets see how it goes.
Wish me luck guys!! 8-)

Good Luck!!! Give it your best shot and don't stress if you feel it is too hard or too easy.
Make sure you check your math twice and don't get stuck on any question longer than 3 mins.
