Hey guys.

Looking for advice. Just wrote my first real CAT. (MGMAT). Turns out the tests I was doing before were not CAT's.
Okay anyways.

My score:
Q:42
V:32
Total: 610
IR: 7

During my exam I felt short on time in quant, and I had way too much time left in verbal (20 min left). The quant questions seemed significantly harder than the questions on magoosh. Up until this point I have focused primarily on quant. I actually haven't started studying for verbal at all. What should my next steps be to score 750. Up until now I have been using manhattan 9 book series, magoosh, and OG2018.

My test is in november

Manhattan and OG should be enough for quant. Try to figure out the areas you lost significant time or made most mistakes and work on them systematically. Revise concepts and practice.

Simultaneously, start working on verbal basics too. Since you haven't studied for verbal yet, see by how many points you can improve there with some preparation. You can then figure out what should be your target quant score and then work towards it accordingly.

Also, I don't see any school which would ask for a 750 or more. A 720+ will be enough to reach the average of pretty much all the schools. There's not much extra you can gain with a 20 or 30 points more.

Try to analyze this test and figure out why you made the mistakes you did. Check how many silly mistakes you made, and which concepts you're not comfortable with. You'll need to keep doing this periodically. Set interim targets for both the quant and verbal sections for a total score of less than 750 (work your way up to that score). If possible, decide on your timing strategy. I recommend that you stick to the average (first 10 quant questions in ~20 minutes and the first 10 verbal questions in ~18 minutes).
