Hey Ardent! Hopefully I can do as well as these other two on my test. Yeah the GRE verbal basically tests your vocabulary... Too much luck (getting words you know) involved in it... The gmat verbal isn't easier but BETTER in my opinion since it's testing your REASONING skills as opposed to how well you can memorize 3000 words.
I hope I can replicate these scores during the exam... I honestly don't know how much time I've really "spent" on studying so far... But I'd say it's been 2 months now since I started investigating the gmat... I've read the 5 mgmat math guides twice just to learn a the minutiae tested in the exam. I haven't really studied for verbal. My grammar has always been good so SC isn't an issue and my reasoning is also good. RC is a hit or miss depending on the passage (Women's rights always gets me). Most people spend around 2-3 months or 100 hours (excluding CATs) so expect to spend that much if you want to do well.
Hello Getienne! I hope you'll replicate the same scores in the actual GMAT
Why not, you have an incredible consistency!
Even i have set a target of two months of prep, by the Jan1st week i should be able to take the Test.
My reasoning is fine but when it comes to grammar i am dumb! BUT again with the practice i can improve, as GMAT has very predictable grammar i.e. 8-9principles are enough to sail through SCs. isn't it?!
I haven't taken any full length test yet, i will take one on this weekend and will let you know about it.
