Feel Discouraged....Can I boost up my verbal? [#permalink] New post 27 Mar 2013, 04:26
I need your help. Today, I took the fifth GMAT test and I feel discouraged. Do you have additional test for Verbal especially CR and SC? I need to boost up my verbal.

@phiphatt: I must really commend you for your resilience. How have you studied for GMAT Verbal so far.

I used to read CR Bible,SC of Manhattan book and practice with the OG 10th, Verbal review 2nd edition. However, I simply practice the questions without analyzing each choice in the questions. What should I do next? Can you suggest me the GMAT materials?

I think at some point better to cut your losses and focus on other aspects of the application. I know they take the highest score but doesn't it start to look weird with so many tries on the report?

What finetime has suggested is one Strategy. However, it will probably not get you to your school of choice. I am curious as to why you did not prepare for the GMAT using some other resource. We have had students who have appeared for the GMAT multiple times and have done well. For example, the student below gave the GMAT 5 times and secured admission to Darden.

We have a free session on assumptions this weekend. Attend the same and see if it makes sense. Click on the link below:

If you work hard, there is no reason why you should not see an improvement. A 100-150 point increase is certainly routine. With a V17, there is tremendous scope of improvement. I am not sure exactly how you have been preparing but I think you are in need of some serious guidance. Also, do not take the test again till you see scores matching your expectations. Consider taking a classroom course/online course/tutoring (though my suggestion would be either classroom course or tutoring since you need personal attention, at least to begin with).
