struggling with gmat

Post Sun Mar 12, 2017 2:19 am
Hello,

I have been preparing gmat for the past 6 months. As i am working, i am not able to fully spend time for preparations. However i am spending 2 to 3 hrs a day. I am scoring 560 in mock tests. Q39, V18. As my verbal is poor, I studied mgmat books and improved my verbal. I finished mgmat CR, did all og problems and was able to solve with ease even for most of hard questions in 2 weeks. I studied SC mgmat and i was able to solve 600 level questions easily in 2 weeks. But now I am not able to solve even 500 level CR question because i did not touch CR at all for past 2 weeks.

Due to work pressure, I didnot study for a week. Now I am not able to solve both CR and SC questions. I seem to have forgot all the concepts and i am in same stage as i was before 1 month. It is really stressful.

Please help what is should do? I have my gmat on May 27, 2017. I am desperate to score above 720. So Please guide me
