You most certainly will need to retake as I'm sure you know. I would recommend an instructor or a class given how low your score is. There are many services like Veritas Prep that offer both in person and distance courses for your GMAT Prep

First, let's not assume that everyone on here is a dude ;)

hitesh1411, your quant score is relatively strong, though if you can raise it a few points, all the better. You'll need to bring your verbal score up into the high 30s at least to crack a 700. See here: https://www.manhattanprep.com/gmat/gmat ... alculator/

You don't give us any information about how you prepared before your first exam, or what the breakdown was on practice exams, so it's impossible to give you concrete advice. Taking a class, as Dozie recommended, is probably your best bet. You'll get all of the resources you need, plus expert advice and the structure of a syllabus.

This forum is also helpful for advice on how to improve specific areas and how to create a general study plan. Search around.

Here are some to get you started:
