Hi Ray,
Thats quite impressive. Congrats on your score. I have few qns, would be grateful ig you could answer them.
1. I am also using the GMATPrep Qns (the link you provided), my accuracy is 85% - 90% , But while taking the test the SC accuracy comes down to 60% - 65 %. From your post I could read that you also faced the same issue, Could you please tell me how did you overcome.

I don't think I overcame that problem in those last 20 days. Only change in my routine was getting those faster so that I can save time for RC and CRs. But if you have time, may be a month or two, you can study and practice more and more problems(But only GMAT prep and OG). Also try to find authenticate answers. I'm sure that will help to pull up your verbal score.

2. For CR also did you practiced the GMATPrep qns. ? If not than could you please explain your strategy on how did you approach the CR qns.

Yes, I did. For CRs I used OG 12 and V-2nd Ed, and few GMAT prep problems. There is a collection of GMAT prep CR questions in this forum. Although I did not have time to solve, I will suggest you to go though those. Anyway I feel GMAT CRs have a distinct pattern. If you solve around 150 problems you can anticipate what is coming after reading first two lines of a question. In CR the differentiation of 600 level and 700 level is based upon "eye for details" .

Also if you could please explain in detail your strategy for verbal: like was it ok to sacrifice some SC qns so that one gain time for the CR and RC . What was your approach.

Thanks, and waiting for your reply. Thats really a great improvement.

I would not go that far to say 'I sacrificed' SC question. I will say that I made educated guesses in little time and moved on. Leaving questions randomly is committing suicide. Never do THAT! About the timing strategy I have explained in my debrief. Hope that helps.

And I can not emphasize enough - MAKE YOUR OWN GAME PLAN, DEVELOP YOUR OWN STRATEGY.
Let me know if you have any other specific questions.
