Hello, I'm not a native English speaker. However, I think my English is good. I scored 112/120 in TOEFL.

On the GMAT though, I scored Q49 V29. This was a big big disappointment. I am 100% sure that I can do better on verbal. Now I'm planning to retake. I'll make a 3 month study plan for myself.

1) How much of my time should I spend on verbal vs. quant?
2) Which books except OG would be a good fit for my case?

Thanks!

Well, I would recommend Veritas Prep books (although perhaps I am slightly biased?). We do a very thorough coverage of all verbal topics, and I think the books are excellent.

It appears that you are scoring quite high on the quant already. I would push for a 2-1 split on verbal vs. quant. Make sure to not let quant get rusty, but I think that a 2-1 split makes sense for you.

I hope this helps!!!

Yeah, as long as you are just getting responses from Experts who work for Prep Companies you will get biased responses about what Verbal materials would best fit your situation. It would be good if you got some responses from other people who are in a similar situation as you. I would definitely recommend that you start your study with some foundational work before you get into Verbal Strategies. We've got a nice Verbal Foundations book you should check out (http://www.manhattangmat.com/storeitems ... ItemID=596).

Put together a plan that includes Foundational work, Strategy Work, and OG work (with solid review) and you will see your Verbal Score improve significantly.
