Dear all,

I have 10 days (full-time) before taking the GMAT (aiming at +700).

I am scoring as follows:

POWERPREP: 750 (almost all the questions are familiar from the Official Guide).
GMATPrep: around 710-720
Kaplan: 640
Manhattan GMAT: 640

As you can see, very different scores, so I dont really know what will be the real one...!!!

Taking into account that I am not native but with good math background, what do you recommend me to invest my time during the coming days?

Many thanks in advance.
-Noboru.

It would have been helpfull if you had given the breakup of your quant and verbal ...

anyways .. i guess concentrate on GMATPrep and identify your weak areas. revise them and work out Try to uninstall and install it again for a new set of questions ...some say it can be taken upto 3 time on each test with a repetition of only 20%.

Mostly ignore Kaplan for sure, it tends to demotivate quite a lot of people.

Like gmanjesh said, it's hard to give you advice without knowing the breakdown of your scores. If your Quant score is pretty strong, I'd suggest that you work on Verbal. As I'm sure you've read, GMATPrep is the most reliable indicator of your capability.

10 days... u still have enough time...

if u are good in quant, focus on v more since the total score is more skewed to the v score.

My last try (Manhattan GMAT)

TYPE SCORE ESTIMATED PERCENTILE RANK
Quantitative 44 73 %
Verbal 35 77 %
Total 650 84 %

Not too bad, but i do need more.

Thank u all.

That's actually a pretty balanced breakdown, so you'd be well served to study either section. I'd suggest that you identify the subjects that are giving you the most trouble in each section and study those. Since there are only three subjects in the Verbal section, you can make a big improvement by mastering one area.
