Hello friends,

Recently i gave my gmat and got a very low score of 470. My quant was 31 and verbal was 25. However in my mock that i was giving a while back. i was getting 550 ( quant 43 verbal 23).

I am planning to take my gmat again. May you please suggest me how to take thing forward. Also, i read that a gmat score only increases by 30 points. i need a score of 640 +.

May yo help me with the same. ( plan / material/ question bank.) I have kaplan premier with me.

Thanks

It is not true that the GMAT score only increases by 30 points. There are several debriefs right here on gmatclub to illustrate the same - like these ones:
god-s-kindness-from-570-to-710-in-a-month-n-a-week-160881.html

Make sure you go through your material completely and are strong in the basics and make sure to take a few mock tests before sitting for the actual GMAT. There are several free resources on gmatclub (the navigation bar on the top left is a good place to start). Self prep is more often than not sufficient for the GMAT.

All the best.

It looks like your score was a good amount lower than your mock score - and you'll need a lot of improvement to reach your target score. Since this is a retake, I'd recommend creating a plan and looking at your schedule and figuring out when you can fit in time to study. You want to make sure you allocate 2-3 hours per day on weekdays. Increased familiarity should help your score go up a bit -- but even more is if you critically understand why each answer choice is correct or incorrect.

You can check out this video clip on the 1-month study plan we recommend at gmatpill.

There are various plans out there but what we found most useful from our students is when you master one section at a time before you move on to the next section. Spend about 5-7 days dedicated to each section. Then mix it up. Hope that helps.

And also try a free practice question. Here's one to get you started:
