Hi, GiuPao94

I’m sorry to hear that you are struggling with a sleep pattern. Physical condition is one of the most influential factors on your test day. So, it is true that you should change your life-style. To be familiarized with normal sleep pattern, you should actually keep it for at least 2 weeks to 1 month. Then, your body will start to adjust to your new life style. To perform at your optimal level on the day, your body should be already set perfectly for the test. And given my experience, only one week is not that enough for your body. There are two thing helpful to get sleep. The first one is lower-body bathing. Before you sleep, bathing for 20 minutes can help your body relax. Also, it brings your temperature down, which enables you to sleep sound. The second one is drinking some hot milk or tea.
And here are some tips that can be helpful right before taking an official exam.

[Physical Condition]
Do your intensive studying until the week before the exam, and make sure you get enough sleep at least 3-4 days before the exam. Maintaining good physical condition while taking the exam will help
you to get a good score.

[The power of Chocolate and Banana]
The day before the exam, eat chocolate and banana. According to the research on education, secretion of glucose increases rapidly for logic tests. If you eat chocolate, sugar is converted into glucose the next day and helps you when you take the logic exam. Also, banana helps you strengthen your concentration.

[Abdominal breathing on the day of the exam]
All exams make a person tense. Before the exam, relieve tension by trying abdominal breathing for 3 or more minutes. It is also useful in between the breaks. (1) Put both hands on your stomach (2) Slowly take a deep breath (3) Hold your breath for 3 seconds (4) Breath out very slowly.

thank you Math Revolution
I booked the second gmat to 15 march because of working reasons. I'm working on my weaknesses and I plan to take another week off.

Hi guys,
took the gmat again yesterday, got 690(Q48 V37)
I'm pretty satisfied now, I just have to apply for a master degree. I will aim higher for the MBA, but now it is more than enough.
Thanks to anyone
