Hello my name is Bruce and I took the GMAT several weeks ago. I am ashamed but I scored a 390 on the test. My downfall was the math. My verbal was percentile was 30%. I did get a 4.5 on the AWA which was better than I thought. However I soon realized I had horrible study materials. I have since purchased the OG 10th ed. and raised my score immediately 50 points in 2 weeks of studying according to the practice test I took on Sunday. I feel like I can do better with help on the Quant section. I am not ashamed to admit my goal is to score a 600 on the test. I am applying for a part-time program at lower tier school. Please help me folks. I have 3 weeks left to study. I am going to take the test again on 07-19-03. Do I have a realistic shot at the 600 score goal I want.

You have a lot of improvement to go, but it should not be very painful - just refreshing. Try Kaplan's books - the MATH book would be the most effective to go through

The general Kaplan's book with CD is quite "short" and should not take longer than 2 weeks to run through.

3 weeks' prep may not be enough... [#permalink]

If you want to raise your score that much, you really should prep for more than 3 weeks, or take a prep class. A verbal of 30% needs great improvement too. Get Verbal Workout from Princeton Review, and keep doing the official guide questions. If you can delay your test a bit, try a PR course - they give you as much free help outside of class as you need, and the classes are small so you get help there too. I really think you should practice a lot more before retaking. Why the rush to retake again so soon?
