Hello achievers,

Sorry I am using this thread to post my query because I don't know how else to tag experts. I seriously need guidance. I have my gmat in next 10 days. I gave Gmat prep exam pack2 two days ago and scored a 730 (Q-50, V-38, with 1 RC and couple of other questions repeated, so I am assuming that it is little inflated because of that). I had 8 questions wrong in Q and 13 incorrect in V. Prior to this, I had 14 incorrect in Q and had scored a Q-49. I have given around 16 gmat club quant tests and have been scoring in the range of Q 40-44. I assumed that with this prep I can nail Q 49 but today's Q score is a shock.
Today I gave Gmat prep mock 6, and to my greatest disappointment, I scored a dismal 620!! (Q-46 and V 30).

Detailed break-up :-

13 incorrect in Q (Q-1, 5, 9, 12, 13, 19, 22, 24, 26, 27, 31, 34, 37)

and exactly 13 incorrect in V (

Q 2- SC

7, 11, 12 - RC

15- SC

19- SC

22, 23 - RC

28, 32, 35 - SC

37, 39- RC

I generally struggle in RC and CR and very comfortable with SC but to my greatest surprise, today I got 100 % accuracy in CR (tried pre-thinking properly), but 6 SC wrong and 7 RC wrong . I know that I can't do much to improve RC in such a short span but SC mistakes are a big red flag.
My biggest concern is that number of incorrect questions are same when I got a V-38 in last mock, so how exactly algorithm has failed me!
Also, this is my lowest score in Q of all the mocks, I found questions in first 10 to be quite challenging today. Almost same number of incorrect questions but score took a dip by 100 points!! this is very scary, please guide me on what could be done? My confidence has taken a great hit with this score.

Score: 770 (Q50, V44, IR 7, AWA 6.0)
Date: August 2016 (repeat attempt)

Most useful study material:

1. Manhattan Quant Guides (very simple to understand. Fantastic shortcuts, tips, and tricks)
2. Manhattan SC (indispensable)
3. PowerScore CR (best to understand the various question types)
4. Official Guide (absolutely essential, particularly the verbal section)

Best Tests:

1. Official GMAT Prep Exam Pack 1 (Tests 3&4 are fantastic indicators of what the actual test looks and feels like)
2. Official GMAT Prep Free Tests (1&2)
3. Kaplan Tests (challenging Verbal, Quant difficulty at par with the actual test)

Also used, but perhaps not the best resources:

1. Kaplan 800 (doesn't add much value).
2. Any verbal tests apart from official materials (fail to effectively mimic the actual question construction or adaptive nature of the test)
3. Manhattan GMAT tests (great to give you a wake up call, but highly flawed scoring algorithm. Additionally: Quant- unusually hard and time consuming; Verbal- nothing like the actual test).
