I took the GMAT back in nov 2010 and got a score of 690 Q49 V35. I took a break and started studying in March again and was mainly focusing on my verbal score...mostly SC. I was able to get up to 730-740 on all of the GMAT prep tests, with Q 49-50 and V 40-42. I was pretty confident going in the test today. However the result was disappointing -- 690 Q45 V40. I've never had a Q score < 49 since my first gmat prep test. 45 is a big drop from 49 and I don't know how I managed that.

I'm seriously fed up with gmat...but I still think I should do it again in a month. I'm thinking of doing the knewton course. I think if I went it again now I will probably get a Q score of 49. I really which I could review my mistakes made on the test.

This is the MGMAT Challenger set I was referring to. I was at work so didn't have time to look for it. "More than 250 extremely challenging questions" for $29 is probably worth it.

If you think Quant is your weakness, try GMATClub tests. Although I have attempted only few tests, I'm confident that anyone can achieve Q 50+ with these tests. Knewton questions are not harder than GMATClub math tests. BTW, did I tell you that I've enrolled in Knewton ;)?

I agree with rg1.
I myself had enrolled in Knewton, although the course is good but it wont really help you get a 49 from 45. Its good to have good base but if you have been getting 49 in quant on yr practice and even inthe first GMAT then u already have a pretty good base.
I would suggest that you go through GMAT club tests.

All the best ......

I want to spend some time increase my verbal score as well since I have to wait 31 days. would knewton help in that area? I ran out of SC stuff to work on and need to find new source.

in my opinion, Knewton is good for a developing solid base ... but if you already are at V-40 then u wont find the questions (apart from some advanced sets) challenging. Most of their questions are modelled around OG....

Yeah, I've found the GMAT club tests to be very good practice. It's obviously not the same as taking the GMAT, but it seems like there's very good coverages of the topics you might face.

I did half of the gmat club tests before my first test. I found that it was still hard to push to 50.

for 2nd test, I didn't study quant at all since I was consistently getting 49/50 on the cat tests.

I agree with some of the above posts that Knewton is probably not much helpful for you at this stage. It helps you build good foundation and get to the level you are at, but for 45+ scores, you probably have some other options to consider. I am currently enrolled in Knewton. If GMAT club tests didn't help you, look for some other advanced books. I don't know which books would help, may be Jeff Sackmann, Kaplan 800, MGMAT Advanced question bank, just some options to consider.

Thanks for the advice. I don't think I'll go with knewton then. I'll finish the rest of the gmatclub tests and then see what happens. Can you guys recommend any good verbal practice questions (SC in particular) I can use to get over 40?

Can anyone suggest good SC questions to push my score pass 40? A lot of people mention 1000RC but I haven't been able to find a link to them.
