Today i had my first GMAT test and it was disaster for me as i scored 510 in real GMAT (48 Q,15 V :( ).I am preparing from last 3 months for GMAT,took off from work. Initially in the mocks..i used to score 550-560(GMATPREP) and 580-90(FREE MGMAT).Then after i did Manhattan SC guide and CR bible. Then after used to score 600+...after putting some extra efforts in some weeks i crossed 650 mark..Then i purchased MGMAT test series and did all the tests..I used to score 700+ in all the tests (Max was 740)....In GMATPREP2 i scored 710..An average i used to give 1 mock in 2 days.Then i decided to appear for GMAT on 5th June 2013.

One day before GMAT i couldn't sleep due to anxiety and pressure.My head was spinning during the test. Still i manged in Quant but in verbal i couldn't concentrate for first 10 ques.Then after i felt somehow normal. According to me verbal was not that tough..easy RC,SC,CR...I was thinking that i would get atleast 35+...But when saw pearson VUE screen...I just scattered....Don't know what happened...Is it the result of my anxiety or something i am missing.

But still i want to retake GMAT after 1-1.5 months as i know hard luck was also there in my low GMAT score.
Can someone please suggest what should i do now....How to start prep again ?
:shock:

Honestly speaking I do not think is a good idea to retake the exam in such short time.

what you have not been able to do until now is really difficult if not a chimera thinking to jump from 510 to 700 and over.

im not saying this to discourage you but only a fair gauge.

back to the roots, to the basic in particular in verbal part.

Do not esitate to ask :)

I agree with you....But i scored 700+ not only in MGMAT CATs but also in Veritas Free test,Princeton Free Test,Platinum GMAT free test,GMATPREP2,Kaplan,800 score....I exhausted all the free GMAT mock available on the internet.

I want to say 500 to 700 jump in score was not just instant...I did a lot of practise from GMATCLUB forum and OG. Then after i improved score from 500 to 600,600-650 and then 700+...

Please help :(
I am just blank now..
