Hey All,

I'm posting my latest verbal scores to debunk the belief that one does not have to know SC. I just took a PR Verbal test to score a terrible: 33. I usually score a 38 and was hoping for a 40 today. What a let down.

Break down of incorrect was:

RC: 5
CR: 2
SC: 8

I only got 1 wrong in the first 10 problems. What does everyone make of these scores? Is 5 still to high in RC? Must one hit a 95% in RC to make a good score in Verbal? It is my opinion that SC killed me here. Most of my incorrects were at the end of the test as I had to speed up sensing I was running low on time. Thoughts?

Missing no SCs may have resulted in the 40 you were looking for.

It just seems like Verbal is graded differently then Math is. I know all say its not, but all the passages etc seem like the same difficulty. In addition, I have gotten 1 or 2 more questions right and boosted that 33 to a 38. Seems like a huge jump for a few questions. Thoughts?

of all parts of verbal i think sc is the easiest to improve on and it represents the largest portion(16 0ut of 41).I hear that the manhattan guide is neccesary in this area.you should get it.

just my thoughts
