I am gonna re take the GMAT soon

Long story short I messed up a couple years back when I took it, among the problems was a cancellation after poor administering of the test.

Long story short I am a lot better at approaching problems and can probably get a perfect score on Quant..don't care about my verbal and can do just as good if I put my mind to it.

I'm at the point I haven't sat down and taken any full length practice tests, and am just thinking "i'm prepared, I'll just show up on test day"

Or should I take a full CAT and focus on my weaknesses fore the full length of three+ hours? I feel like I may not have the mental stamina to repeat this again for a LONG time if I do do this, since I usually sit at home and my mind will be thinking about the last time I arduously took the test.

Hi manimgoindowndown,

Before I can offer you the specific advice that you're looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied for this attempt at the GMAT?
2) What materials have you used?
3) How long has it been since you've taken a FULL CAT (with the Essay and IR sections) or the Official GMAT?

Goals:
4) What is your goal score?
5) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
6) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

Off and on a couple of years now, but most recently 2 months or so. i had 40 pages of problems i got wrong, reduced it to 12 in a doc I have compiled over the years
2. barron's gre prep (this is actually for the gre)
3) a long time, i wanted to figure out the nuances of the test and tricks (ie not going back and answering the prompt that asks for 3x, when i solved for x) and have just gotten better at taking tests

4)100% on math if possible
5) two or so years from now, but I am not employed right now and rather get it done with

Take a full CAT and focus on your weaknesses.
Don't think too much as it will make your depressed and restless.
Even if you are not able to solve the questions correctly, don't stop and continue to give it.
And analyze the test at the end.
