Very nice improvement! It seems that you have things under control and understand how to study for the test.
If CR is your weak spots, then you need to read those guidebooks over and over again. Lots and lots of practice questions will also help; there's a huge supply on the forums, the OG, and LSAT test booklets. And answer as many CR questions as possible on the forums. Make sure to fully explain your answer choices too.
For RC, I used the Powerscore RC
Bible. It's expensive, big, and boring, but I recommend the book in extreme circumstances. The most helpful thing for RC is to practice with many RC passages. LSAT is great for that, so make sure to incorporate those in your studies.
I guess the main thing is to keep your mind on verbal all the time. When you're totally sick of verbal, read some GMAT Fiction
. When you go to the bathroom, bring a GMAT book with you. If you have time to watch TV or play on the computer, immediately stop and get your books or practice questions out. You don't want to exhaust yourself to insanity, of course, but push yourself and stay active with verbal.
Right now, though, you have the right idea to take some time off and relax. You earned it! Besides, you don't want to risk GMAT burnout.
Thanks bmillan01, I thought no one was going to reply to my post~
I tried answering numerous CR questions on the forums tagged 600-below and 600-700, but I don’t really like this approach because I felt like a majority of the CR questions posted online are from the GMAT Prep program. I know it will skew my practice tests later down the road, and looking for postings tagged from other sources are kind of hard to find. I’ll be dropping by my local book store to see if it carries the new 5th edition MGMAT CR
book and see if it’s worth buying.
For RC, I don’t think I’ll do anything drastic other than to read often. I actually finished a few books from the GMAT Fiction
list while I was studying for verbal, but I don’t think it really helped me all that much. Regardless, I’m pretty excited to see how much I’ll be able to improve my verbal score…hopefully the improvement will motivate me to aim higher.
