At 700, Want to reach 750+ [#permalink] New post 03 Jun 2012, 02:22
Hi Experts,

I scored a 700(48Q/37V) last week.

Even though it is a good score, I do not think it gives me any competitive edge, since I am eyeing a top school, among others considering my average profile and around 34 months of work experience.

I have exhausted most of my prep material. MGMAT CATS, GMAT Preps and OG12.

Please provide insights as to how should I go about preparing for my next attempt. What additional material should I obtain to particularly obtain higher scores given my current preparation. I am comparably weak in RC while SC is my strongest area.

Please suggest some good additional material that I can refer to and really boost my preparation and push my scores.

Let me know if I may provide any additional information to help you suggest better.

Thank you,
Shubham

Try the Veritas RC book. It has some very good theory and lots of high level passages.

Make sure you are not overplaying your strength in SC. The SC section has shifted more towards meaning over the past year so I think some test-takers might actually have fared less well in SC than they think they did.

Cheers,
Der alte Fritz
