awesome! congrats!

Did you also use the The Official Guide for GMAT Verbal Review [Book]?? i don't think i will have enough time before i take the exam to do all the verbal questions from the OG. Did you do all the verbal questions in the OG?


No, I didn't do all the RC problems. I did about half the RC problems in OG and the Verbal Review, all the SC and CR problems in OG12, and probably 75-80% of the SC and CR problems in the Verbal Review.

If you're short on prep time, I'd skip RC unless you're taking a practice test, or just do the second half of the RC questions.. Most RC questions are either slightly easier versions of CR, or "find the detail" type problems that just require careful reading to get right.

Great review! Just a quick question -- your scores (as you said) "jumped" from 710 to 760 on the CAT exams, in August even during your family emergency. And looking deeper, your Verbal improved a lot.

Care to share what you did during that time to prime yourself for that jump?

The biggest thing was giving myself the full amount of time and energy required. Fatigue was a problem or I was somewhere with distractions on my early CAT's. I also spent a great deal of time reviewing problems I had missed earlier and working on them until I fully understood them.

Smart attempt buddy !!

Your strategy was good.... :)

Your verbal really rock...

I have couple of questions regarding the difficulty of the tests as compared to Og;s and Gmatprep. Could you please provide the comparison among OG's Gmatprep and real test for all the 5 question types : Cr,sc,rc,ds,ps.

If possible provide some detailed analysis for verbal sections.
