I really could use some advice. In May of this year I took the GMAT, only after one week of studying and got a 300. I feel really embrarrassed because everyone on here is hoping for a 600+ when all I need is a min. of 450 and I can't even get that. My scores from May are as follows....
Verbal 15/8%
Quant 14/4%
AWA 5.0/57%

I took a practice test a few days ago and got a 250. I just purchased the Novermber 17 at 2:00 pm for a retake but feel it maybe too late to get to at least the min. I know I am very rusty, but do you think I have a chance to get at least the min? I have at least 3 and a half weeks until I retake but I really don't know where to start. I took the GMATFocus for the Quantitative and know that my problem solving, real and applied, and arithmetic are weak areas and I haven't even really looked at the verbal. Any advice would be appreciated.

sorry about your previous score. But looking at your previous score and current mock test performance, I feel that probably you are rushing into the retake. Not sure, if there is any special reason behind that, but if i were to advise i'd strongly advise against going for it so soon.
In my opinion what you need at present is a thourough understanding of basics and concepts and loads of practice and with these you surely can reach way above 600, let alone your target of 450.

Pls do not feel ashamed. Realizing the weakness is not a sign of shame but a courage. You must concentrate on official questions especially 3 official guides. Build your basics and practice OG's. Keep everything else on pending list. Give gmatprep to check the performance.
