Advice to improve accuracy [#permalink] New post 22 Dec 2013, 05:37
Hello, my verbal scores don't seem to improve even though I have done tons of practicing from og13.

In cr and rc I am able to eliminate 3 options, and from the remaining two options I always tend to choose the wrong answer.

In sc I know all the rules but often it happens that I don't even know what is wrong in the sentence and only by seeing the answer choices I am able to find errors. But my accuracy is not improving at all in sc.

Can someone please let me know how to approach or what to try ?? i am following manhattan series and solving questions from og13 and verbal guide. I still have 40 days left for my GMAT. Right now I am scoring around 28 and for my target score I need 38 verbal score.

Hi - I have one bit of advice that served me well on the way to getting 48V.

It is not about quantity of questions, it is about quality.

What do I mean by this?

There is little point in doing lots of questions if you don't truly understand each one before moving on. So, do a few questions, see what you get. Then go back over the ones you got wrong, and really get into WHY they are wrong, if you don't understand - ask on here, every question has a thread.

Then, if you are satisfied you know them move on.

Then the key bit, the next morning, do the same questions you did yesterday as a 'warm up' - you saw them yesterday and understood them, so it should take you 10seconds each..

This forces you to understand every single question before moving on. It's also a good confidence booster to set you up the right way for the day ahead.
