Hey.. just got back from my second GMAT attempt, a shocking 450 (Q 30, V21).
First attempt was in early Feb, hardly studied-490. Since then, I took the Kaplan Course, studied OG material, and answered Kaplan 800 questions book. Took 10 practice exams including 2 GMAC prep ones, score in Kaplan exams ranged from 560- 590 (once 650), GMAT prep 560 and 570.
Went it today, no anxiety or anything, scored 450, after spending 2 hours per day, 8 /weekends, on top of a full time job (consulting).

I dont know what to do. Do I take it again in a month again, meanwhile, do what? go over all my books again? PLEASE ADVISE! I was confident that I will score at least 560-580. Couldnt believe my eyes when i saw the 450.
Math section I spent alot of time on the first 12 questions, ended up rushing on 22+....that probably killed me because I normally scored 39-41 on quant, and 29-35 on Verbal. English is my second language.

I was aiming for 580 +

Wanted to ask some last questions if I may.

How was the Data Sufficiency and Other Quant questions compared to the OG11 and Gmat prep?

How was the verbal compared to OG11 and Gmat Prep?

What techinques/strategies would you suggest for Quant and RC/CR?

Thanks.......

PS What types of Questions did you receive mostly on quant?

It is possible to increase your score. Have to taken GMAT challenges. They are really hard, and they will make to have a firm base. Start taking the challenges. Group all your mistakes while practicing and try to go over them frequently. Do the SC, CR and RC collections for practice.
