Burnt out - need help/advice

by sadams07 » Wed Dec 09, 2009 5:02 pm
I've been studying for the GMAT since August. I took a Kaplan course & unfortunately, performed about 40 points less on the GMAT than I was getting on my practice tests.

I'm scheduled to retake it on Dec. 19th - and I am burnt out! I took a week off after my exam to just "not think." Since then, I have a hard time making myself study, I can't stay focused when I take practice exams, I am getting more problems wrong than ever & I am just TIRED of this darn thing!

What do you think I should do? Is it best to push thru it since my next exam is 10 days away? Am I better off taking a step back & not overdoing it so I am fresh for the exam? Should I just do practice problems here & there rather than trying to do a whole exam?

Any suggestions/thoughts are greatly appreciated...
