Take the GMAT again?

Post Tue Sep 03, 2013 11:32 am
Should I try taking the GMAT again? My score: 730, 48 Quant (76th%) and 42 Verbal (96th%), 8 IR (93rd%), 6.0 Writing

I scored a 740 and a 760 on my two practice tests. I'm thinking take another practice test. If I outscore a 730 again, cram for two weeks and take the GMAT one more time to hope for a 20-30 point improvement.

Dear bb11:
I'm happy to respond. Smile

My response --- in my opinion, absolutely NO. For my logic, see this post:

I hope this helps.
