660 -- help please

Post Thu Jul 26, 2007 5:01 pm
I recently took the GMAT and scored a 660 (45Q 34V). This was a major disappointment as I had done the following over the course of the past two months:

--OG 11th Edition PS & DS (did twice)
--OG Quant Review (did twice)
--ManhattanGMAT class & books

I scored 680 on an official practice test (42Q 40V). I've struggled a lot with getting nervous in the test and making stupid mistakes. Any advice on the following: (1) how to learn the content of number properties and combinatorics (2) how to master some of the stupid mistakes etc.

Any book recommendations? I am willing to do any amount of work to learn the content and really break into the low 700s.

when applying, a 660 and a 700 isn't that big of a difference.
