Hi,
I wrote my GMAT Prep first test and scored 550. disappointing coz i expected to get atleast 600. But no excuses and I only want to focus on improving my score. Please help me do it.

My score break up was :
Quant - 24 correct questions.
Verbal - 24 correct questions.

I answered the last questions in both incorrectly coz of time running out...

I have 3yrs exp in IT and am still working.

Please Please guide me to achieve a good score.

thanks.

Please go through the verbal and quant forums thoroughly. There are pointers at the beginning of each forum that'll direct you in your endeavors. There's too much information to just put in one post :).

Hey dont worry. 2 months is enough if you buckle up and focus on your weaknesses.
Count the number of weekends, count the number of tests, plan and start.
And being in IT, don't work till late, make sure you squeeze out 2 hours daily from your deadlines:)

What was your split between verbal and math?

What target score are you looking for?
