I took the test a month ago and scored a 600 (V27/Q46). I was surprised by my score. I expected a least a 650, scoring in the top 90% in Math. My low verbal score was crazy.

My weakness is SC and through my studies I have improved. I need to re-take the test within a week; any advice? I have taken all the PR, Kaplan, and PowerPrep tests in preparation for my first test. (I scored 700 in PR and PowerPrep). Now I do not have any pratice tests to give me an idea of how I am doing (I familar with all the questions).

Please help! Target is 680, but a 650 will keep me happy.
Thanks

If you got 700 in PowerPrep before doing the OG then that should be your aim as it is achievable for you.

You can get a few paper tests from GMAT PLUS and VSTUDY and many practise questions from the links section on this site. They are very helpdul. Try sentencecorrection.com too and get the SC concepts from there. If you search a little bit more (yahoo groups and all) you can get your hands on 800score tests too. You may also try the GAS tests.

Lastly, do not make the mistake of ignoring Quant while concentrating on Verbal. You may be surprised on the exam day.

All the best.

Thanks! Also, for anyone who is taking the test! KNOW HOW TO CALCULATE THE STANDARD DEVIATION! I am a Math Whiz, and I thought that the Math was extremely time consuming and exhuasting! But I didn't get anything that surprised me except for the standard deviation question. When you take a practice test, take the time to confirm and recheck your answer. That will consume an extra few minutes on the exam.
