Retake GMAT or not -- PLease advice [#permalink]

New post 21 Apr 2010, 04:04
Earlier, in Nov 2009 I gave GMAT and received a score of 550 (Q44, V23). I was not prepared in this attempt.
Today, I appeared for GMAT and received a very pathetic score of 600 (Q47, V27). This was my second attempt.

I studied consistently and I was scoring more than 680 in Kaplan and Manhattan online exams. In the Kaplan CAT 7 and 8 I scored 710 while in Manhattan CAT 5 and 6 I scored 720.
I was confident that I would be able to tame GMAT this time, but somehow GMAT tamed me.

I feel that the English section was very difficult. At least very difficult from the Kaplan and Manhattan CAT’s.

As I wanted to apply to some European colleges, I really need some advice at this stage.

• Should I appear for another GMAT soon or should I wait, prepare again and then appear? I am too bored or demotivated to start all over again.
• Any anyone recently given GMAT and found GMAT verbal section tough than regular GMAT prep exams?
• Any suggestions are welcome

if the colleges you want to apply to has ~50 points over your 600 then you should. Note that this wont be "all over again" since you really only need to focus on your verbal and a little on math. Know where you are getting questions wrong on verbal - SC? CR? RC? With difficulty of questions between real/prep i dont think anyone can really tell you and even if someone can it is really irrelevant on test day. Oh yeah make sure you use the standard OG + MGMAT books.
