I took my third time GMAT yesterday and got a score 640 with Q:50 and V:26, almost the same score that I got last Jan.: 630 with Q:49 and V:27. To tell the truth, I tought that I can get 680+ until I saw my score.
I am thinking about take this challenge again next month; however, I believe the key part that I need to improve to get 700+ is the verbal section. How should I conquer my weakness?
Does anyone can give me some advice? I really need help this moment. I am not a native speaker but I am willing to try everything to improve my verbal skills.
For reference, here are some books I used to prepare my test:
2. Kaplan 800
(not finish the CR part yet)
3. Princeton Review
- Cracking the GMAT
4. Verbal workout for the GMAT
5. Ace the GMAT (I think the CR part is quite useful but need to be used after you get familiar with the basic concept of CR)
6. Manhattan SC
I also downloaded the Spidey's Sentence Correction Notes and collected some common idioms on the GMAT myself.
