dear,
i have given my GRE General test two time in the recent past BUT in both tests i got the GRE Quant score of 150. Despite of hard working and solving different mock tests (even i got 159 in the ETS powerprep online practice test 1 and 2) and also completed all questions of real GRE and of mock tests in given time frame, my score did not improve. What should i do now?
Any expert advise.
my target is minimum 160 (and i was so much confident to achieve this target)


Your post is kinda confusing. Ideally the sequence of the events should be more or less as follow

1) Practice questions no timed

2) Questions timed

Notice how you should give more emphasis to those areas in which you are weak in the ratio 1:4. 1 in which you are strong or good and 4 where you are weak

3) Keep error log of everything

4) Reliable mock tests such as GPC tests or MGRE no kaplan or princeton

5) PP free

6) PP Plus

At the end of this process, you can assess where you stand in a reliable manner. From that, you can move forward to improve even more where is necessary

thanks for your kind response. But if it is so as you replied, then why my numbers are higher in the ETS mock tests or others.
Are these tests not reliable?


Hi There!

Let me dive in for rx10 :)

These tests are surely reliable, but the level of difficulty might change. And it is also possible that a simple question might have been framed to look difficult or vice versa and you got into the trap. So, what I mean is, it is possible that you misunderstood the questions on the actual test and selected a trap answer.

Apart from this, did you analyze your PP mocks? Because at times the method you follow is not the desired way of solving a question and COINCIDENTALLY you get the answer correct. Here, you will have to strengthen your base, and learn the common trap that ETS has. For eg. if the question says number it mean positive & negative integer, decimal, zero, fraction etc. And it is highly likely that if you do not consider either one of them you easily become the prey.

Conclusion: Know the topic well, get in to the deapth of the topic and not know it superficially.

Hope this helps!

Regards
S!
