Hi all, I just took the GMAT on Monday after 3 months of studying, and scored only a 620. I want to take it over again, but I am not sure what practice tests to use for the second round. I’ve exhausted the GMAT prep tests, and manhattangmat tests. Would anyone be able to guide me around what would be good practice tests to tackle going forward? I am afraid that I won’t have any real GMATPrep material to use this time around.

Appreciate any help!

From what I understand, once you have done all 6 MGMAT tests you can reset the exams and try them all again. That will give you 6 additional tests. Unless, of course, you have already taken all 12 tests in addition to GMATPrep.

Just redoing the tests will not help. What you need is some level of introspection. Tell us what were you scores from the GMATPrep, MGMAT cats you took? What are your shortcomings? Did you try to address them before your GMAT? Whats your score breakdown from the real GMAT?

Best step forward is to take some rest then figure out areas you are weak in and focus on those by diligently practicing.
