Scored 15/25 on Mgmat SC question bank. I performed badly, but learned a lot from the sc bank. Very good questions.

For CR and RC, PowerScore CR and MGMAT RC helped me well.

For SC, I obviously use MGMAT SC, and I'll be reviewing this book and corresponding OG12 problems a few more times. SC is still my Achilles heal.

Do you have any idea what should be the accuracy in order to get V40+

sorry no idea. But make sure you do not lose many questions initially and consecutively.

There is no accuracy for a score alone.

You could get 50% correct and score V40+
You could get 50% correct and score V25.

Accuracy is meaningless without the difficultly.

I think it's a bit exaggerated. With only 50% accuracy, GMAT won't provide you with hard questions or at most very rarely.

On GMATPrep, I got V40 with about 80-90% in CR/RC, and 65% in SC. Prior to that I scored V35 with roughly 55% overall in Verbal.

I have kicked off my verbal preparation yesterday starting with CR portion. I am using MGMAT CR guide. After reading the first three chapter. I have solved the the exercise on assumption question. I could get only 2 right out of 10. I am very much woried now about the CR. I felt like I will not be able to achieve my target score with this kind of results. I am totally confused at this point and not sure what to do for verbal.

Please help?

I m short of time, thus I couldn't work on Rc99.

For CR - You will have be patient. If you do not have good critical thinking skills, then the only way it to practice hard and revise your mistakes every week.

If you have time then do read powerscore CR. I have not done Mgmat CR, so I can not comment.

Hi Friends,

I have solved OG and Verbal Review for RC. What you suggest specially for RC practice ? Are LSAT passages good enough.
Among all 3 verbal section, I am never ever correct 100% except science passages. Going to put more efforts for RC.

Please suggest about LSAT RC or anything comparable.

Thanks,
Shilpa

It depends upon the time left for the exam. If you have ample time then you may practice few LSAT RC passages. But before GMAT do not forget to revise og's. It is very important to mimic your mind with the gmat pattern.

Whatsoever material you may use, near your exam revise the official material as much as you can.

PS: You do not need 100% accuracy to score high. Keep all the sections covered and have confidence in your preparation. It is very important to score well in all the sections. Make habit of practicing 2 RC's per day.

Good luck.. when is your exam?

Thanks Gurupreet.

Yes, good suggestion about reviewing from OG. I didnot think of that earlier but sounds great.
RC , I mean to say 100% accuracy on easiest questions.
My exam is on 17th Nov. SC is improved after going through Manhattan. Guys, I realized that understanding the sentence structure is important. Even though I am not experty yet, I have seen quite improvement in SC.
What you guys are up to?

Hi there,

Yesterday I tried to solve first(and only one) LSAT RC passage. Solving LSAT passages seems way to difficult to me. Obviously I still struggle with GMAT passages so I guess it is not a good idea to go through LSAT Passages.
What do you suggest ? I admit that I am not a regular English newspaper reader so it is not easy for me to acquire RC skills for GMAT. After OGs now what is ideal for RC pratice? Anybody solved LSAT Passages here ? Were they beneficial?

Thanks,
Shilps

How are you all doing? I am panicked by reading one other thread here in GMAT club by a person, who went from 570 to 530. I haven't done much preparation for RC yet. My score can easily go down to 10 or 15 also in verbal as I get so panicked about RC. How are you all preparing for the RC? What preparation material are you using. As I have already taken GMAT, I remember most of RC passages from OG. Is there any other material, I can focus on. I have taken off from work for 2 days just to focus on RCs. Please help me with identifying prep material for RC. I am going to read the MGMAT RC book today on and off and practice some RCs.

In order to become good in RC you must first become good in CR.

Most of the incorrect answer choices in RC are usually out of scope, or too specific for general questions. I highly recommend MGMAT RC book, which teaches very useful tips on what strategies to use for specific questions and what strategies to use for general questions.

Would have loved to see this thread alive...but the last post was on May 2010...:( Anyways guys , I am one amongst the many who has sucked at the verbal part of real thing(V=29) and I don't want any stone left unturned this time . I was thinking of starting to categorize questions according to what it demands . For eg , If we find a question on parallelism , then we know that under it , there can be different varieties of parallelism like parallel verbs , parallel phrases , parallel clauses etc . Classifying different types of question asked may help us build an exhaustive list and if we see similar type of question again , then we may not feel that question to be so difficult . Another example I would like to take is that of weakening questions from CR . Of all the questions I did , I could only realize two types of scenarios under which a question can be weakened . Most of them were weakened by the additional info and some of them by cause and effect reasoning methods . I think that building exhaustive list makes it very less probable that we face questions which we categorize as "new" . But building exhaustive list will require the support of you guys . Looking forward forward for your contribution if you like my idea...:)
