I took GMAT 2nd time this past Friday and got 640(q40/v38). I took it for the 1st time a month ago and got 620(q41/v35). A 20 point improvement is good, but I was trying to get 650 or better. The 2nd time around I took a more balanced approach to my studying. Specifically, I gave equal study time to quant and verbal. Whereas, 1st time I studied quant almost exclusively.

This time around I also read throught the MGMAT, the timing strategies for quant and verbal in this book were really helpful. I also read through MGMAT number properties book and did all of the problems. This really helped my understanding of number properties. But, I think it would have helped if I would have went through this book twice. I also read through the Kaplan Verbal workbook and all of the problems. Although, in this one month time period I did not get a chance to revisit any of the other MGMAT math books like Foundations of GMAT Math or Word Translations. My MGMAT prep tests indicate I need that I am most in need of a better understanding of probability, geometry, and statistics. I should have known that my real test results would end up around 640 because most of my MGMAT prep tests that I took over the past month resulted in a score of 640.

Having said all of that, I want to ask bb do you have any advice on what I should do from here to improve my score? I don't know if I will be taking GMAT a third time. But, would having my MGMAT prep tests reset help? Also, would keeping some sort of error log help? If so, how do I do that? Thanks!

error logs are useful in targeting your problems that gives you trouble. Which you can use to review to see why you made that mistake or was it just simply not understanding the concept of the question.
