Congrats on the score - can anyone help me out????? - I have taken the test 3 times already (YIKES!!!!!) Consistently scoring 46 -48 in quants and 24, 26, and 28 in Verbal. I suck at Verbal. I feel so embarassed by it. I am desperate for any tips available. Unfortunately, I am not one of those people who naturally do well at Verbal ?s. I get killed when it comes to SC (during my 3 experiences, its as if I can't fully attack the questions with the right approach, my brain goes fuzzy and I start to panic) and then when it comes to the RCs, I need help figuring out the correct approach to digesting the passage under time constraints. PLEASE HELP!!!! I am so nervous and on the verge of giving up - I can't score in the 20s range again- it will be devastating.

Taking the test again October 3.

for SC, start with basics, go through OG 12 problems carefully. note down the strategies mentioned in the solution. Also Manhattan SC guide is a must. Read it and understand the concepts. its important to understand why an answer is wrong,and other is right. This will help minimizing mistakes.

For RC : practice more. Read more and more. Do a lot of RC practice, day in and day out. You cant master RC without doing a lot of practice. You should reach at a stage when you are not doing any mistakes in any passages, or may be one odd mistake in 10.

Do not panic. Take a lot of mock tests, and under test environment.Don't let anything disturb you. Take the GMATPrep tests seriously. And try to concentrate on the question at hand, not at the questions you already answered.You cant go back anyways.

I would suggest that since you have already taken the test thrice, take some time this time around, and postpone the date if you think you are still under prepared.

Thanks! Do you think I should take the GMATprep tests multiple times?? I would love to use as my GMAT CAT prep but the lack of explanations makes it difficult. Please let me know what you think.

Take care.

Just reviewed the link for GMAT prep tests and some feedback from others on taking it multiple times. This is definitely a great GMAT forum. I have taken your advice and have pushed back my test which will give me ample time to apply before second round deadlines. I am fully committed to improving my verbal.
