from 31 to 36-37 [#permalink] New post 25 Nov 2011, 19:24
I scored 31 on the verbal section on my GMAT.

Need to take that to 36 or 37 (min 35) in order to get the prefix changed to 7 (:.

Need some solid strategy . Somebody please help. I have 1 month of time left with me.

SC - I know the basics. Comfortable with 80-90% of the questions.

CR - Though I have read CR bible but generally follow my logic while solving the questions

RC - I read the passage in detail with a good eye on details. Then simply move on to questions & try to unfold them.

Please help to improve 4-5 points.

I stuck with same problem : ( I received 640 (Q49, V28) last month but I was sick on test day. I'm receiving a minimum V35 on MGMAT tests but think that need to improve to 38-39 to be confident and don't know how.

@gmatpassion: you're definitely good at SC with 80-90% correct choice. In CR, I think the best way is to practice and try to review each question carefully. The more you review, the more you get rights choices. In RC, my experience is practicing, again. Read more passages, learn more new words. Besides, try to understand the correct meanings of the question stems as well as answer choices, find the clues, and get the correct answer choice. Note: Do not miss any keywords when you read. If you do not know their meaning, save them in your excel files and read again each time you start practicing RC in the next times.

The GMAT verbal is arguably more important to your score than GMAT quant as described in this article: ... -strategy/

Of the GMAT verbal sections, SC is the easiest to improve and RC is probably the section that will take the longest time to improve. These RC videos may help.

Some people recommend reading the NY Times. While that may be beneficial in the long run, it's unlikely that reading NYTimes will actually help boost your score in a few weeks. Focus on keywords in the passage so you know when you should really pay attention and when you can "skim" parts of a paragraph. This is almost an art rather than a science and takes time to develop.
