Hey guys,

I finally sat for the GMAT and scored a 610. V34/Q39. Very disappointed.

I'm pretty sure I ruined myself when I selected to take the test in a different order than how I've been practicing - Verbal/Quant/Ir/essay.

I've been scoring in the 650 range on practice tests averaging around 40 on the verbal. V34 is the lowest verbal score I've ever seen. I assume My brain was not warmed up for the verbal and it really messed me up.

Looking to retake after I take a couple weeks completely off. Any tips or suggestions? I ended up studying for about 4 months last time and I really got burnt out the last 3 weeks. Maybe study for just 2 months before retaking??

Any guidance is appreciated as I really want to bit 700.

It will be important to plan HOW you study, not only the amount of time that you study.

Creating an error log may be helpful so you can understand your frequent mistakes. Additionally, it may be helpful to purchase the score report so you can see exactly which subsections within Q and V you performed worse on. If there was one subsection that you clearly scored lower in, you can then focus on that section to study. All the best!

If you are able to score around 40 in verbal. It is really a good score. Your Quant seems to be very low. Concentrate on building your basics for quant. use GMATclub Math book to refresh your quant basics. Solve all the OG questions. And try to get accuracy of 80% in OG Quant questions. And maintain the error log. And redo the questions you got incorrect after some days..

For Verbal- Try to practice OG daily and maintain your score between 37 and 40. All the best!

Hi, your verbal score is good you really need 9 to 10 points improvement in quant and 8 points on verbal
Have you ordered your esr report? it might help you where u went wrong..
I will suggest you to go through gmatclub quant tests those are awesome and will help you a lot.
I dont know anything about verbal because u havnt mentioned anything specific about Rc, CR and SC.
But yes for SC manhattan Sc guide is awesome
for CR i will suggest u powerscore cr bible and for RC practice atleast 5 Rc's daily
