Hi,

I took my GMAT yesterday and got 640[q:49, v:28](was aiming for 700+) .I am not atall satisfied with my performance in verbal. I prepared for around 2 months for this attempt. Studied mainly from Kaplan, OG and Manhattan SC and gave test series of Kaplan, Manhattan, Princeton and GMATPrep.
The only reason which i can think of for this bad performance in verbal section is slow reading and lack of concentration.

I need advise - should I give it another shot or go ahead with this score?! I am targeting Universities in Asia (mainly in Singapore ) or Europe. Also suggest me some other decent Universities in which i can apply (apart from those in US ).

My profile is average.I have almost 2.5 yrs of work experience in IT industry and have won few awards for projects done in Graduate school.

Since, you have already tried MGMAT SC and verbal resources, why not to have a try on Knewton. They offer a 50 points money back guarantee. So, IMO, you should go for a retake. You can also check this thread out for devising a retake strategy

Best of luck!!
