Best strategy to start again [#permalink] New post 21 Oct 2013, 05:39
Hi,

A bad note to start.I completed my GMAT exam 10 days back. The result was never excepted in my wild thoughts as it was too low than my bench mark.Its 470.

The movement i completed my exam,There are several thoughts running in my mind,But the repeating question is "what's next? I scored 45 in Quant and 12 in verbal.I always know that i was good at maths.But English,that was a brain teaser for me,always test my patience.

Now,I don't need any motivation or help to get myself in positive state. Because i am always positive.But only the day of exam is not mine. The most i expect from GMAT Club is answer to my big question "what next?". For me, Taking it again was sole idea.But this time i don't want to miss the shot. So,please consider my problem with verbal and suggest me the best strategy to beat the magic figure of 700+

Dear tarak:

I'm sorry to her about your struggles, and I am happy to help. :-)

First of all, here's a three-month study plan designed for folks strong in math but weak in verbal:

Here's a free GMAT idiom ebook:

Here's a good blog to start you back with CR:

That contains many links to relevant blogs.

Here's a blog on SC strategy:

Here's a blog on grammar, with links to several other articles:

One of the very best things you can do for your verbal performance is to READ --- over and above any GMAT studying you, read at least 1/2 hour of good challenging English material every day. Here are some recommendations for what to read:

Even if you decide not to use Magoosh, I hope you get the most out of that free blog. There's a ton there that can help you! Let me know if you have any further questions.

Mike :-)
