Hi,

In my last attempt in GMAT in which I scored 700(Q49, V36), I chose verbal first, and felt that the vocab was pretty difficult since I came across few really difficult terms/words specially in the CR section. I'm retaking GMAT next week, and I'm thinking to go with quant first this time since quant for me has never been much of a challenge. Also, I didn't do any warm-up questions before starting the test and had time-anxiety issues during the verbal part, because of which even though I was scoring 42/44 in the GMATPrep tests, my score dropped that badly during the actual test. The ESR showed 66 percentile in CR, 80 in RC and 82 in SC.

Any feedback/suggestions on the same? I would be grateful if someone could please suggest something I can do to improve.

Thank you for your time and kind help in advance!

Hi RR1,

Congrats on your score. 700 is a good score too.

Selecting the section order should be based on your strength.

Though selection of section differs from person to person, One should always prefer to start with section in which he or she is super strong.

If you feel you are better in Quants than in Vebal. Please opt for it.

But retaking GMAT exam won't help if there is no major score improvement.
