Just came back from my exam with 690 (Q47, V38) score and definitely want to retake it. Annoying thing actually happened. During the RC passage, my computer was shut down for 15 minutes, and, after this nuisance, I had to reread the whole passage and lost some extra minutes. Wrote an appeal to the Pearson.

1. Background

Three months ago I decided to pursue GMAT and got my first bare attempt - 620 (Q45, V29). As I got into career limbo, I got plenty of time for preparation (actually, as I realized later, it was my biggest mistake to devote so much time to the process)

2. What I have done for these months:

- read MGMAT tutorials (all except for CR and RC), also I reread SC and NP
- gone through all questions from OG17, and later remade all wrong answers
- done tons of verbal questions from 600-700 and 700+ questions banks on the forum
- completed all 6 MGMAT tests
- completed all 6 GMAT prep tests

3. Scores

Mprep:
1. 650 (Q47, V32) - 11.08.2018
2. 680 (Q47, V35) - 11.15.2018
3. 680 (Q48, V35) - 11.22.2018
4. 710 (Q49, V37) - 11.29.2018
5. 720 (Q48, V40) - 12.06.2018
6. 690 (Q49, V35) - 12.13.2018

GMAT prep:
1. 690 (Q49, V35) - 01.10.2019
2. 700 (Q48, V38) - 01.15.2019
3. 740 (Q50, V40) - 01.17.2019
4. 620 (Q49, V26) - 01.21.2019
5. 690 (Q50, V33) - 01.24.2019
6. 760 (Q49, V44) - 01.28.2019

Actual GMAT: 690 (Q47, V38)

4. Plan

So I decided to retake the exam and I have several questions about my plan for the 2 months.

- I think to get GMAT Club tests and try to polish my math to Q50-51 and also, probably, to improve my stamina for this section since for last 4 exams I felt too exhausted when came to the verbal section. One of the reasons is that I decreased my math practice almost to zero and devoted all study time to verbal. Or it is better to spend more time on my weak part - verbal?

- I am stuck with my verbal performance as I depleted almost all official questions. I think I need to redo CR and SC questions more meticulously in order to reevaluate the basic concepts of the questions.

- RC is a bit more complicated - for my last 3 months of preparation, it is the toughest area to improve (I allocate approximately equal times for all areas of verbal) and is still, with time pressure, my weakest spot.

- Is it better to narrow my focus on only GMAT questions or spread on other similar companies? During my prep, I spent some time on Non-GMAT questions, such as LSAT, and found it very challenging. But still can't figure out is it real push for verbal performance.

Thanks for the answer! But can you be more specific - is e-gmat good to enhance performance from V36-38 to V42+?

Hi there!

At this stage of prep, an online course can do wonders for you. It will give you some new insight and a lot of new practice material. In my opinion, you should try TTP's course for a month to ace your quants and magoosh or egmat to polish those verbal skills.

Best wishes!

Hi popovarseniy,

I’m glad you reached out, and I’m happy to help. First off, sorry to hear how things went on test day. I image that had your computer not shut off, you would have scored higher in verbal.

In any case, regarding your plan moving forward, I think your best move is to practice using new and fresh verbal and quant questions. Thus, you may need to look for some additional resources. Furthermore, as cfc198 mentioned, to improve your quant skills, Target Test Prep would be a big help . If you can complete the course, there is no reason why you can’t hit Q50+ on test day.

If you’d like to discuss TTP further, feel free to reach out to me directly.

Good luck!!
