Course of Study for High Verbal/Medium Quant [#permalink] New post 29 Nov 2011, 13:26
I recently took a MGMAT practice exam and scored a 700 with Q44/V41. I would like to know if it would be better to focus on the Quant section or continue focusing on both sections. Any help is greatly appreciated!

v41 is a pretty good score and so is the Q44.

I would focus on the area you can improve the most. if you are at a loss, the Q score looks like it could be improved more and usually easier than the V score.

In my opinion, quant is not only easier to improve, but it is also more variable. You could get lucky and get questions that you know how to do on test day, or you could get unlucky and have the test emphasize question types that you're weaker at. Verbal is more stable, at least for me, because for quant not remembering a geometry rule or a formula could sink you, even if you could otherwise solve the problem. There isn't really a parallel to this in verbal (aside from grammar rules in sentence correction if you don't play them by ear), as its much more difficult to forget how to read critically, or how to analyze an argument. Verbal draws on broader skill sets, and I was therefore less worried about failing to show the GMAT algorithm my best effort in verbal. Schools also like to see at least 80th percentile in quant, which is a 48, especially in quant heavy fields. So I would focus on quantitative more than verbal, but brush up on both if you have the time and the drive.
