help! tips for score improvements [#permalink]

I've been studying GMAT since beginning of June and got decent scores on two practice tests. One was the Princeton Review and the score was 630.
I was confident to do good on the actual GMAT exam, but I did horrible on my first one which was 470.
I am really really depressed with this score but gotta do something to improve this score (my target is 600-650) but I do not know where to start.
My GMAT materials are Kaplan and Official Guide for GMAT review. Should I keep on practicing with both books? Is there any point that I should focus on practicing? Any advise will help, since I am kinda lost...

Hi

No need to get depressed... Start afresh again with OGs.. analyze the correct as well incorrect expalantions to answer choices.
I'll recommend you find out your strenght and weaknesses as soon as possible and then lay emphasis on weaknesses.
Use CR & RC Bible, OGs, MGMAT stategy guides..

Practice a lot as time management is of great essence..

All teh best..

Hi,

You can check my GMAT deberief to boost you moral
570-to-700-my-gmat-journey-133461.html

Coming to study material. I followed teh following books and sites:
how-to-start-gmat-preperations-136048.html

Regarding improving the score
Prepare a xls sheet (topic by topic).. and keep a track of your progress on a daily basis. Use color coding (Red,Orange,Green).
Red: You are weak in theory - brush up your concepts.
Orange - Done with theory but weak in application of the concepts
Green - Done with the topic

Hope it helps!

Thank you very much narangvaibhav for your cheer and suggestions.
I was thinking to find out more on my strength and weakness as you suggested. Do you think it is good idea to take another practice test to find out my s &w and start from there or just work more on OG?
