Hi ,
Gave my exam a couple of days back and scored a dismal 590(Q48,V24)..

The exam started well.After the AWA I was feeling confident.I think I should be getting a 4.0+...

Then came the Q section I did it well..In the break I kept talking to myself that the job is 2/3 done..I just need to score a decent 35+ in V..And I may touch the 700 figure...

Since I am not a native English speaker,I always knew that V was my weakest part and hence I was aiming a 35 which I usually score in my preps.

But when the section started, I don't know what happened to me..I did not feel comfortable in even a single question..I could feel that I am messing it up..But I kept going without thinking too much...And when I saw the scores I was very disappointed....

I don't know how I should motivate myself to prepare again !!!

Obviously you need to get down and dirty with verbal. I don't know how you prepared for verbal 1st time, so if you give some feedback on that it should be helpful for others to give you an advice.

My recipe is:
MGMAT SC
LSAT RC passages (after you finish OG ones and read ALL explanations)
tons of CR practice

don't despair though... 48 in quant is awesome!

For Verbal I had done the following:
MGMAT SC
PR
OG 11
and the CR and SC questions on this forum.
My weakest section is RC followed by CR..But I think what costed me was that I even had lost confidence when attempting the SC in the exam.

Received my Official scorecard and got 5.0 in AWA.I am happy to see AWA 5.0 but I guess its all in vain..Need to start all over again.

I suggest you to consider taking some coaching, it's good option & nothing wrong about it. I heard that GMAX online is pretty good.

On the other hand, you appear strong in quant, so don't worry too much. Go for it again.

Cheers
