Hello fellow GMATers. I gave a second shot at my GMAT and failed again. 590 (Q48/V23) (worse than my previous score- Never imagined in wildest dreams)
I will appreciate if my fellow mates with similar experience can help me analyze where I went wrong.
I gave my first GMAT in JAN 2012 and scored a 610 (Q47/V27). It was a quick 6 weeks of preparation and no strategy and very few full length tests.
Three months back I thought about giving another shot at GMAT. I completed the knewton course, brushed my basics from Manhattan books and did a lot of practice.
MGMAT scores 670/670/640/700/660
GMAT Prep 680.

I am really demotivated!! I really want to give another shot. One thing common with the people, who score really high in GMAT, is that they participate in gmatclub discussions and learn from peers!!
For me this is a new begining. Can someone please suggest as to what I need to do to raise my score in next 4-5 weeks!!

Hi,

the very first thing which i want to tell you is to make an error log if you have not made one.
What i suggest to most of the guys is to make a progress chart also. Something like this:

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

Also, check out my post on how to do gmat preparations:

Also, you can check out my gmat debrief to keep keep yourself motivated!
