560 (Q49, V17) - how do I handle the beast - Verbal [#permalink] New post 16 Oct 2010, 19:01
Practice test score was around 630-700 (V22-v35). Last GMATPrep score before test day was 690. Official test betrayed me. I have gone thru almost all the verbal books suggested including MGMAT SC, Power CR. I am loosing confidence.

Help really appreciated.

Hi nfs, welcome to gmat club.

Its sad to know your verbal debacle. Its amazing too that you came all the way from 35 to 17. Anyhow, I think you should retake the gmat with a new strategy. Check this thread
should-i-retake-gmat-thread-retaking-gmat-strategies-83339.html

I will suggest you to try an online course. Knewton offers a 50 points money back guarantee, so you can also check that option. This thread will help you out

For verbal, practice & pattern recognition is the key. Have you identified your weak areas in verbal? Do so if you havn't. There can be a possibility that you are good at SC but not good at CR or RC. So identify your problematic areas & work on those. Let us know if we can be of any help.

Best of luck & keep us posted.
