Hi roxleslie,

I'd like to know a bit more about your studies and your Official GMAT Score(s):

1) How long have you studied?
2) Have you used any other resources besides the class you mentioned?

3) When did you take each of your Official GMATs?
4) How did you score on each of your Official GMATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores)?
5) What is your goal score?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?

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

A few questions come to mind here.

First, I am wondering what your verbal scores look like. Some of the skills used to get right answers to quant questions are similar to those used to get right answers to verbal questions. So I would like this detail as a clue to what's going on.

Secondly, you mentioned your scores "on the actual test." I am not sure whether you mean that you score higher on practice tests or that you get practice questions right or what.

Finally, you talk about doing practice questions. When you do those questions, do you do them on a timed basis or an untimed basis. Some people do most of their practicing on a timed basis, and so they never really develop the skills necessary for finding right answers, because they constantly interrupt their work and end up going to explanations rather than working all the way to answers.

Whatever the case may be, one thing is for sure. You can figure out how to increase that score.
