Hi,

I have given my GMAT on 5th Aug, and got a miserable score of 530(Q47,V17). I could not believe i received such a pathetic score. Before giving actual GMAT test, I did gave Kaplan online test and I scored an average of 560 and I gave one OG test and i scored 630.

I don't know what went wrong that I scored so low, and I am targeting the 2012 MBA class of some good B-schools, but with this score all my dreams are shattered. I have no clue why I scored so less in the exam and especially in verbal, i guess it was my lowest score ever.

Kindly advice should i retake test and if yes what is the minimum time i should take to reappear?
Secondly from where should I prepare verbal?

Its kind of strange i was doing OK in the verbal practice tests and in the short verbal test in Kaplan and OG but still received this terrible score. Not sure where I was lacking on the test day?

Its for sure when the verbal section came, i started loosing sort of focus and was taking a lot of time to understand and started getting restless

Thanks
VIvek
