Need advice!!! GMAT PREP taken [#permalink]

Hi,

I took the first GMATPrep about a month back and got a meagre 580 which was disappointing. I aim for a 700+. I had a low score in V29 but my Quant was ok with Q47. So, I started with SC preparation, followed BB's advice on some external reading for RC and read the powerscore Bible for CR.

I took my second GMATPrep last weekend and although it seemed to more exhaustive and confusing rather than difficult, I thought I would score even worse this time. But the score came up as 670 (Q44, V38). This has motivated me to face the real test 2 weeks from now.

I need the experts' advice on what i should concentrate now and which material should i be going through. I do atleast one GMATCLUB test everyday. On the second GMATPrep, I ended up wasting time on 2 ques and that cost me the last 3 questions. I just answered without even reading any of them. I never had this time problem before.

I am planning on the following:

SC- Go through my error log on the OG12. Where can I get additional practice on harder questions.
RC- OG12 and readings.
CR- Did OG12 but seems I need more practice. Got many wrong, not because they were hard but because I needed focus.

DS and PS - I want to practice those tricky questions and need the appropriate sources to practice within these 2 weeks. I have 8 GMATCLUB tests left.

Lastly, I plan to practice atleast 2 RC passages, 10 SC, CR, DS and PS problems from this awesome forum.

Help and advice would be appreciated.

Thanks!!!

Getting a 670 on GMATPrep and getting 700+ on the real thing in 2 weeks is totally different. Many people have said that if your practice tests are about 20 - 30 points higher than where you truly want to score, then you're ready to take the real thing. If you've not already scheduled your GMAT, I advise you to wait awhile, maybe early August or mid August if you can. You do have apps to start thinking about if you want to start Fall 2010, but the time to prep could be worth it if it can bring your score from a 670 to a 710 or so.
