590 (Q49, V21).. any suggestions :( :(.. [#permalink] New post 28 Mar 2013, 06:12
Hey guys,
Well, I appeared for the GMAT exam today. I scored pretty good in Quantitative but I sucked in Verbal. Is there any way, which can help to improve my verbal score?
Although, I tried a lot to improve my CR, RC, SC but I panicked in my verbal section. I was not able to eliminate the answer choices and as one cannot spend more than 2 minutes on any question, I ended up scoring very badly in the verbal section. I tried every damn thing to improve my RC, CR and SC but, unfortunately nothing came in my direction during the exam.
I did gmat prep thrice, manhattan tests six times and improved from 540 to 640 but I think it wasn't enough. But i never expected such a low score in verbal. So if you guys can suggest anything to me, I will be very thankful like what to do now? where to start from?
I will plan to give my next gmat after 3-4 months and I really want to score above 700 so as to get into good universities.

@rakeshd347 - Thanks for your reply. I appreciate it :)
Well, as I don't have a good habit of reading and as I cannot concentrate for a longer period of time on a given passage or a paragraph, I loose interest. This is the most important issue, I need to work upon. Yeah, practice is the most important tool too, but I think, I need to work a lot on improving my fundamentals.
I will try my best to improve upon my reading skills and extracting the maximum information out of it.
I have gone through the link. It does provide a lot of helpful information. Thanks a lot. :D

Well, the thing is, I don't find the RCs boring rather I find, making a selection between two answer choices, very difficult. In most of the cases I end up selecting a wrong answer choice.
I have decided to go through MGMAT once again and focus more upon fundamentals.
Yeah, I will start with short passages for sure. I will solve OGs 12th and 13th edition again and would try to improve more. I will keep fighting and practicing till I get a good score coz I know I don't need to focus more upon Quant.
Thanks a lot for sharing your experience. :D I will try to make the most of it. :)
