You don't want a long tutor, eh? That's hilarious.
Yeah. its just so funny that I'm depressed as hell. Read tons of gmat books, studied a ton. Got 580-690 on every practice test. Took the test. Thought I did well and got a horrible 550. Thought I aced it. Got 46/20. Its funny that they don't tell you what u did wrong in Verbal. I have no clue. My worst verbal score was a 25. I'm sure I got at least 80 percent of the SC right. I had so much time on the reading that I read the passage over 5 times. I have no clue what I did wrong and if I can even do better. I thought I aced it. I'm depressed
I also suffered in a similar fashion ;In my first attempt i scored 49 on quant and a pallatry 22 on verbal. After the exam even I did not have a clue what had gone wrong. But then I decided to give verbal a completely fresh start took a break for a week and then schedule my second attempt was back attacking verbal. Keys to answering RC is being able to read RC actively. One should be to step into the authors shoe determine what the author would say after reading 1/3rd passage. You must be able to figure topic , scope,purpose and main idea of the passage after reading the 1/3rd of the passage.
For CR Kaplan
strategy worked the best for me.
For SC use Manhattan SC in conjunction wih OG11
Hope this helps
