Retaking GMAT- Need help! [#permalink]

Hey everyone, I am a new joiner and have found great inspiration on this site. I just took the GMAT on Nov 1 and and got a 640 (M:44, V:35). It was a huge disappointment considering I was scoring about 710 on the GMAC software a few days before the test. A couple of things I was wondering if you have tips on:

1. I'll be retaking the test in a month or so. How should I structure my study? I was thinking about keeping a list of all my weaknesses and spending each night drilling into 1-2 of them plus doing a complete run on different types of problems for both verbal and math. This way, I am practicing everything everyday.

Is this a good idea or is this too much? Any other suggestions? Do you guys suggest going over questions that you got right as well -- to validate that your approach is right?

2. What additional prep material would you guys recommend? I took the Kaplan course and have repeat material to work off of. I also have OG 10 and 11, plus Princeton Cracking the GMAT 2006.

Any suggestions on what other stuff I can use? Where do you guys get all the sc1000, cr1000, ds1000, ps1000?

Thanks for your support!!

I would try to do one question type at a time for at least half an hour, so that you get into a good groove. You'll improve speed and accuracy that way.

There's a good amount of overlap between OG 10 and 11. Did you do either of them for your first test? I'd do just OG 11 if you haven't already done it. And the Cracking the GMAT tests are great, definitely do those. Review your Kaplan material if it helps, but I wouldn't redo any practice tests you've already done.

Good luck! Retaking sucks.
