Disappointed - Bad Score. What to do ? [#permalink]

Hi , I just wrote GMAT and scored 430 with Quant 30 percentile and Verbal below 20. I am preparing for last 2 months and have completed the following :

1. OG10
2. Kaplan
3. Kaplan Verbal Workbook
4. Manhattan Sentence Correction.


I am really disappointed with my score. But I still have high spirit and wanna give GMAT again. My target score is 700. I think I am lacking strategy to shoot a question.

Please help me and suggest how to do well. I am ready to put 2-3 months or more if required.. But I really wanna do well.

Thanks in Advance

Toyo,
Have you considered using one of the prep classes: Veritas, MGMAT or Kaplan. I think you may find the structure and guidance of a live class helpfull. As i have previously stated I would do as many practice exams as you could possibly do.

May want to consider some of the suggestions for materials here: t74310-recommendations-for-best-gmat-prep-books

Classes are also an option, but they are not everyone.

(moving this to the appropriate forum)
