Hi People. I gave my first ever GMAT 2 days back. I scored 500 (Q-32 & V-26) in 4 days study . I still have a month to give my next and last for this year for applying in India. Hence, I would appreciate a few recommendations on reaching atleast 700 score.

Due to the heavy work load and late sittings in office I literally postponed my GMAT appointment twice in last 3 months, until ultimately it was gonna cost me the complete exam fees for postponing any further.

I had no time for detailed study and hence settled for GMAC's Quantitative & Verbal Review for brush-ups for the fast approaching exam. I hardly had time left for any practice on Verbal questions and AWA. So I have come back with such a terrible score.

Awaiting suggestions on a proper strategic approach that I need to apply to achieve my goal .

Thanks,

Tough one.
Delay GMAT to allow for proper study. If that not possible here are my thoughts below which might be useful:
Increase time available to study this could include taking annual leave, reducing social life, restrict work hours to what's in contract. Studying in morning before work.

Get some good study materials. The offical guide is not going to help. Most people like the manhattan study guides. Other options include private tutoring and online GMAT courses. The forum can provide some support on what are good guides and online courses in this area.
Identify weak areas and focus on them.
Create a study timetable; GMAT pill and magoosh publish one month study plans.
Create some space for relaxation to reduce stress.

For AWA try the template by Chinese burn. Should be able to obtain it on the forum.

Good luck
