Hi brownman777,

First off, a 710 is a good score and since you have said that you have improved you profile, it might be sufficient to get you into a to B-School.
However, if you have set a target of 750 for yourself, then you should go for it.

You should opt for a score guarantee course. Obviously you would not want your money back, but a guarantee shows the confidence of a company in its course. You can find the details of our course and take a free trial too.

Since you have not been in touch with GMAT, I would recommend you to take a mock CAT ad post your scores here. Post which, we can take it up.

Hi brownman777,

The advice that you received back in 2015 (when you scored 710) is still practical now and you can still comfortably apply to any of the Schools that interest you.

Your two Official GMAT Scores are remarkably similar. This is important to note - GMAC has publicly stated that a Test Takers Official Score is within +/-30 points of actual ability. Your two scores seem to bear that out - your ability is right around 700 (with remarkably consistent Scaled Scores for the Quant and Verbal sections). Whatever work/study you did between your two GMATs, you ended up approaching BOTH Tests in the same general ways - you did many things consistently well, but you made the same general mistakes. This implies that you have some minor 'bad habits' that you were not able to eliminate. If you do end up retaking the GMAT, you really must consciously make the minor adjustments to how you 'see' (and respond to the GMAT) - otherwise, you will likely score in the same general range as your prior scores. There might also be external factors that impacted your performance on Test Day (you mentioned feeling tired and 'burned out' - which could certainly have cost you in a number of subtle ways across a 4-hour Exam).

If you have any questions, then you can feel free to contact me directly.

Hi! I am in the same boat as you are. I gave the GMAT and got a 720. I am planning to retake it next week.
From my experience, it will not take you more than 1 week to get back to the position you were in. Just redo the OG and Manhattan Guides and you should get back to the 700 range. From there, completing the Advanced Quant Manhattan book and the Gmatclub test series should take care of Quant. Do not waste much time on Quant. You are good at it!
For verbal, it should not take more than 15-20 days.

RC- Rhyme's strategy
CR- Powsercore
SC- Manhattan plus practice from all the official sources!
And buy the 2 extra GMATPREP CATs for 50$. They are absolutely worth it.
