Dear all,

thanks in advance for reviewing my case and any suggestions you might have.

My case:

    I took the GMAT a week ago and scored 700 (Q48, V38)
    - I have the feeling that I can score much higher and will take the exam again on June 9th.
    (previous exams: Q48 | V44, Q49 | V43, Q47| V42)

    - Because of my comparatively low verbal score, I figured that the issue most likely was, that I was not used to the tiring test circumstances
    (I took all my previous test exams without the AWA / IR sections, thus sfhortening the test exam by an hour).

    - This is supported by the fact, that in my very last test exam before the GMAT, which I took under real test circumstances (all sections), I scored very closely to my real GMAT result (Q48, V39).

Thus, my plan for the next weeks is:

    - Practice questions in "test" setting (75 minute sessions with 8 minute breaks in between)

    - One test exam every day during the last two weeks before my next exam

My question(s) to you:

    - Could you please comment on this strategy (i.e. do you see any logical flaws in my conclusion?)?

    - What would you recommend to get my quant score a little bit higher?

    - Is there anything else you would recommend?

Many thanks for any hints you might have, they are much appreciated.
Regards
Brock

Look at this link: http://www.veritasprep.com/blog/categor ... s=48+to+51
The top 5 posts discuss how to go from 48 to 51 in Quant.

Do not take more than 1 exam in 3 days. One day you will take the test (real time conditions) and in the next two days you will evaluate and review the gaps. You will need one free day to relax. Don't take any test in the last 4-5 days.
