I took the actual test today and got a score of 610. Needless to say I am kind of disappointed with my score, I am not giving up on my dream to go beyond the 700 range and go to schools like Carnegie Mellon. 49Q, 25V is the break up of the score.
I am a Masters Student, I have been in the US for almost 5 years and I really did not think Verbal would have been a problem for me, but apparently it is. So I am going on a vacation for about 7 weeks now and thinking to retake in October end - November beginning.What strategies do you guys recommend? I have the Manhattan SC book, and I am going to purchase the Powerscore CR.
On the real test, I noticed the first and the second RC's were very complex and I wasn't sure about the answers. Any RC book you guys recommend? I am also going to improve on my Quant score, but my main focus will be verbal. I used the Kaplan
So Manhattan SC, Powerscore CR
, RC book/practice should do it for verbal?I am giving myself enough time to reach 720.
Thank you for any replies.
