Would really appreciate some critique, next steps for retaking if you have a few minutes to help out.

I just sat for the gmat last Friday and scored a 610. I've provided a link to screenshots of my ESR.

AWA was a 5 if you're curious

I only looked at the Quant info. The DS/PS score split is unusual - you have an exceptional DS score, and an average PS score. That makes me wonder if your overall score was an outlying performance, compared to your diagnostic test scores. It might be that you made a careless mistake or two on easier questions in PS that lowered your score, and if those aren't mistakes you normally make, then you'd have very good reason to expect a higher score next time. But if the lower PS score was also a pattern on your diagnostic tests, then that suggests where you should focus your future prep.

The other thing that stands out is the pacing data. You should take note of the time you spent on your incorrect answers. In some sections of the test, you spent more time on incorrect answers than on correct ones. Any time spent on an incorrect answer is wasted - you'd be better off guessing instantly (though you of course don't know that you'll need to guess until you do some work on a problem). But it seems possible that you're sometimes persisting too long on questions that you might not see how to solve during the test, and then end up a bit rushed towards the end (where your performance was a bit worse than earlier in the test). You'd probably raise your Quant score by a couple of points with slightly more disciplined time management.

It's a bit risky to read too much into one ESR though, since the data breakdowns are based on very small sets of questions, so I can't be completely confident about the above. You'll likely have other information from your practice and diagnostic tests that you can combine with the ESR data to get a better idea of your strengths and weaknesses. Good luck!
