GMAT Strategy Recommendation
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Folks,

I need your assistance on the following:
I have been studying for GMAT for the last 4 months or so.At this juncture I have been attempting questions from Official Guide(OG) 10th Edition.I should have completed about 70-80% of the questions. To gauge my competence level,I took Test 1 and Test 2 off the PowerPrep Software.My scores are as the following:
Test 1-
Total Score:580
Quantitative:82%
Verbal:33%
+++++++++++++++++
Test 2-
Total Score:570
Quantitative:78%
Verbal:33%
+++++++++++++++++

I did see number of questions repeated from the OG book in both exams.Thus,I am wondering if the score is a true reflection of my ability.Or should I scale the scores down to get the true score?Is the Power
Prep the closest reflection of one's score in the real GMAT exam?

To move ahead I have done the following:
-->Quantitative:
a)Identified my mistakes in both exams.
b)Identified the pattern of mistakes.
c)Comapared this pattern with the type of mistakes that I made in OG.
d)I will be working with a MATH Tutor to address the conceptual and careless mistakes made in (a) and (b).
-->Verbal:
i)Identified that Reading Comprehension(RC) and Critical Reasoning(CR) are my areas of weakness.
ii)Need to Identify the reason for the mistakes that I made in these sections.
iii)Upon knowing that,I will be working to address the weakness.
iv)Collated all the mistakes that I have made for Sentence Contruction(SC) in both exams + OG.I will
be working with an English Tutor to understand the mistakes further.
v)Finish reading "The Elements of Style."
++++++
Please let me know your thoughts on the above.In addition,can you also let me know other practice exams apart from PowerPrep and ETS exams that can act as a good grounding for the real exam.Thank you for your time.Rgds,

Anna
