Hellow everyone,
I just took my first GMAT yesterday and the score was very disappointing. It is the lowest out of all the practice tests I have taken but surprisingly my verbal score went from 33 to 27 on the actual test. Can anyone help and advise on what probably went wrong? I really haven't spent much time on verbal as quant has always been my weakness. I will be taking a second GMAT in less than 8 weeks, is this enough time to improve my score? how much improvement do you think is reasonable given another 7 weeks of time to prepare?

Also, I would like to hear any suggestions on preparation for CR. During my test yesterday I did feel that all the CRs I encountered I was not 100% confident with my answers. Lastly, what would be a good way to keep all the quant materials fresh in my mind now that I need to devote more time to verbal?

thank you all, anything helps.

How did you feel while taking the exam? Calm? Nervous?

I was nervous but I felt much better after quant because quant has been the section that's bothered me most. I felt confident taking the mgmat cat verbal sections but I think maybe they are way too easy than the real GMAT verbal. What should I do now? I definitely want to focus more on verbal but don't want to forget the math.

7 weeks can be a lot of time for some and not enough for others. It depends on how far you are from your target and how much effort you are willing to put in.
For CR, check out the Veritas CR book. It gives you very clear directions and helps in building strong fundamentals.
Practice and regular review should keep Quant concepts fresh in your mind.
