i just returned from giving my gmat and i am very disappointed with myself.
i scored 640 (q43,v35)
the thing is i am not that bad at all of my practice test i have always scored above 48 and scored 50 couple times too.i know the i don't know what actually happened.maybe the pressure got to me.i really don't know.
so i am planning to give gmat again after 2 months or so.i would really like the experts to advice me how to approach quant and verbal too
what things should i do right to score 720+
i have been pretty good at SC,my accuracy would 80-90% where i lack is critical reasoning and reading comprehension.
as far as RC is concerned i can improve by practicing more and more passages.
what should i do for critical reasoning.
and please suggest me how to score 50 in quant too.
i really really and really want to beat the gmat.
Kindly help !

Q 35 out of how much?
V 43 out of how much?
Are you talking about percentile?
