Hi Guys.

This post is conceived by me to give to the rest of us valuable on-line resources outside of GMAT Club to tackle the verbal section or at least in my intention to improve and foster this part of the GMAT exam.

These links are also used by me to practice, practice and once again practice. To make a long story short: the use of them should lead you to use official resources as last stage of your preparation. This thread is a sort of roadmap but they do not substitute in any case OG material, of course. In the end, the aim is to give you possible alternative resources, perhaps that you do not know.

General GMAT Links



CR Links



SC Links



RC links



AWA Sample Essays



Tests/Question Bank

Hi Carcass,

Really good post.
I'm in the final stage of my studies and trying to solve as many 700 level CR/SC questions as possible.

Also when shall i use the GMAT prep pack1 and GMAT prep tests. I have loads of other tests: MGMAT, KAPLAN, 800score, Mastergmat etc

Can you please suggest me how to use this stuff.. which i can skip and which i take immediately.

Best Regards,
Mansoor

do not like 800 score verbal (math is much better) at all

kaplan mastergmat untill 650 or so

MGAMT and if you find on google or scribd SC topic wise by Ivy gmat or this link here on gmatclub from question bank search.php?search_id=tag&tag_id=172 or the general bank about any kind of question viewforumtags.php for 650 and above (and below)

Then go for OG 12 13 gmat prep and question pack . if is not enough go for the set from souvik that contains questions from gmat prep but after this one to revisit the concepts behind, not before otherwise your test is biased

the-most-comprehensive-collection-of-everything-official-sc-140372.html

In the case of gmat "curiosity didn't kill the CAT " :D

thanks a lot Carcass!!

I also felt that Mastergmat SC is not upto the mark and i queried them but they say that recently they have added 120 tough questions and that the material is sufficient to get past 700 easily.

Anyways, im keeping all options open. I'm practicing 700 questions on GMC as well and supplement it with OG verbal review 2. Then as you have suggested.. MGMAT tests n GMAT Prep.

Thanks, man; I really feel the club needs something more as far as verbal practicing is concerned.

Hi carcass. I am new to this forum and currently following this forum and suggestion from you ppl closely for verbal as I am a non native..... Since you asked about our opinion so here I will try to review the links The question banks of sc and cr are good but I guess the question levels are of 650 as not many hard questions are in the links ..... I have not gone thru a lot of RC links... Only a few but I guess I can safely say the same for them too.............. Jumbo material ..... Forget it...... The best of the links is veritas free question bank..... The questions are of good quality and moreover they are quite similar to the manhattan material so I like them as I know that the material from manhattan is considered one of the best.......

Excellent collection of resources, carcass.

Verbal has always been a pain area for most non-natives. So this should help a lot of folks.

+1 for this post.

students pay a lot of money to prepare for the GMAT test. If a teacher or coach can help you overcome the weaknesses of the method proved to perform well in GMAT is a GMAT practice! GMAT practice again and again! GMAT more you practice, the better prepared you are!
