Analysis of Recent Verbal Results - Advice? [#permalink] New post 24 Aug 2006, 13:19
From various topics of discussions I think we have seen that people who are getting around 33-38 in practice scores go either way, i.e they are living off the edge.. as Ruby mentioned..
Also it seems that the verbal difficulty level varies with ppl..

i have seen that once i cross the medium level I generally get most Hard questions right.. My hit ratio on hard SCs and hard CRs were 90%.. but on medium are around 70%.. Rcs is another uissue..

but how do we improve our verbal so that we get the first few medium level ones right so that we get more harder questions.. It seems like official gmat somehow zones you in medium level because you keep getting half of medium right.. the question is how to climb that mountain of getting most medium right? and not just the hard ones..

On the MGMAT tests, I got 40 twice because I got the harder problems right.. because it was not adaptive but on the official gmat I think I did not cross some of the medium level verbal questions..

RCs is another issue that is supposed to be concerned.
we don't even know what is really weak point of ourselves in official test?
Eventhough someone 's so sure that he/she is weak in SC
but the fact is he/she might screw up RCs on test day.
Some might think they ace RCs completely but they may actually
fall into 4 traps consecutively. The result is after combo of RCs
they start to continue on their journey in lower score band.

Another problem is definition of "hard" in SCs
In most complex Scs, I usually find them related to modifier problems
which sometimes can be solved in 1.5-2 minutes
while some of 500-600 level Questions test idioms which
test-creaters consider them easier than modifier problems

But what is easier between these two ? how can test-creaters
judge that idiom and tenses are supposed to be tested in 400-500 range
questions while modifier will be tested more in higher range questions
If our own knowledges don't correlated with the standard they set up
,we may find ourselves solve "defined as hard" questions easily but don't even permitted to solve them because of struggling in "defined as easy"
questions.

I think one possible way to solve this problem is to build up
knowledge from ground to top. Solving extremely hard questions is not enough to build good score. Knowing how to solve easy type of questions
might be even more important.

For quant guys who can always stay their Q more than 48
formula of Q 51 V 33 total 700
Q 50 V 34 total 700
Q 49 V 36( not 35) -700
can be applied to set goal on 700 barrier
