Just got your PM - unless you feel that the materials are confidential, I would just post it on the forum - many other visitors may find your question relevant and helpful.

Next question - what were your weaknesses?
Specific subjects (RC, SC, DS, Geometry) will allow us to help you better rather than just general categories such as Verbal or GMAT

Verbal - From The Weakest

1. CR
2. SC
3. RC

Quantitative

1. Technique to solve the Question
* Coordinate Geometry
* Probability

The biggest weakness is SPEED

Generally speaking, this is what most people will recommend:
1) CR - Powerscore Critical reasoning Bible
2) SC - Manhattan GMAT SC
3) RC - Practice from OG11 or Verbal Review for speed and accuracy

It sounds to me like you probably need to work on your fundamentals. Your speed will improve considerably if you memorize basic calculations like squares and cubes of common numbers on the GMAT. There a number of resources out there for studying number properties, MGMAT's book is good, but I really liked Kaplan Math Workbook for covering all of the fundamentals.

If you need more guidance, don't hesitate to ask

you need to ACTUALLY know your stuff first because doing CATS without actually knowing doesnt help much.

check the other thread about it has a list of GMAT tests etc that you could try.

I like to take a practice test once every two weeks. It gives you enough time to learn new concepts, but occurs often enough for you to get comfortable with the exam and reduce anxiety.
