640 (Q: 50, V: 26) - Another disappointing score :( [#permalink] New post 30 Nov 2005, 18:19
I took GMAT on Nov 28 and my overall score is 640. Verbal is my weak area and it contributed to my lower score :(

Here is the split-up: Q-50, V-26. It is such a dis-proportional score and my total prep time is about 2 months.

I would like to convey my thanks to all the GMATClub forum members and Paul for enabling access to GMATClub challenge at the right time. Overall, GMATClub has contributed to my quant score.

The univ, I planned to apply required more than 50 percentile in Verbal to waive TOEFL. I am debating between whether to take up GMAT and concentrate on Verbal or take up TOEFL iBT. The main reason is TOEFL would be a new ball game and I need to prepare from scratch. On the other hand, I do not have much idea to crack the GMAT verbal.

I would appreciate any suggestion on this regard and any ideas to crack the verbal part.

Thanks again folks for your help

yup verbal really killed you ....i would suggest that you should try again ..as you have such a good hold on Quant you can concentrate on verbal. I am sure you can score 700+. Find you weak areas in verbal and try to improve on those.....and write another sucess story of 700+ on this club.

best of luck ...

This 640 has been a 'magic' number in the last 2 months!
Hey Sudhagar! I was wondering what happened to you. Didn't see you around much off-late. Anyway, that's a killer score in Quants! Keep it up! There was no doubt that you would do well in Math!
But I don't remember seeing you much around in the Verbal forum?! Participate more over there and definitely your verbal score will improve (if you take the test again!).
Anyways, 640 is a very competitive score. You may not need to take the test again and instead concentrate on essays, application and toefl.
Good Luck with the next steps!!

sudhagar,

First of all congratulations! 640 is a very good score indeed. your math score is simply outstanding. yup verbal is little disappointing. I bet if you stick to this verbal forum you can significantly increase you verbal score, that will easily take you to 700 +. take care.

Thanks for your response and encouraging words guys.

GSR: I was occupied with verbal preparation for the past couple of weeks. Hence my participation was low in the forum.

You are correct, I did not participate much on the verbal forum. I would start preparing verbal again and give a shot.

buddy, 640 is not a bad score, at least you and we all know you're very powerful at maths ( this, from my observing of your posts so far as well :) ) ..like duttsit, you now should have an even more intensive review of verbal parts ...you can definitely break 7XX range next time!!! ^_^ ...good lucks to your endeavor, buddy!!!

hi, your Q score is awesome i wish i can get 50. my verbal is weak too, try to pratice in blocks of 75-80 mins with 20/10/15 SC/RC/CR questions at a time or similar groupings it helps build stamina. 640 is not bad at all. good luck on the apps and heads up.

Go as deep into the verbal archives on this site as you can.. Do about 100 SC/CR questions a day, timed, and carefully read each OE. After two weeks register a retake and your verbal should be 30-35.

Hi Sudhagar,
I am in the same situation as you are since I got GMAT 600 (Q47 and V27). Iam planning to go for round 2 in March.

I am looking for some study partners. Verbal is my weekest area,especially the Reading Comprhension part of it.

Please let me know if you are interested in teaming up with me in case you are planning to take GMAT one more time.

By the way, i am a new member to this forum. You can see my post on 'Share your GMAT esperience' thread for details on my back ground.

Thanks
