Have you taken the free Manhattan GMAT test? This will give you more feedback on where your weaknesses are in verbal. From that, we can help you with an action plan.

If you already know, what sections in verbal are you struggling in?

bb wrote an excellent study plan to get over the 700 hump.

Two weeks is cutting it close, so you'll either have to study at least 3-4 hours a day or reschedule your test. It definitely can be done though, good luck!

oops... double post.

Anyway, I highly suggest you first take a MGMAT practice CAT to identify your verbal weaknesses. MGMAT assessment report will show how many of each type of question you got wrong (i.e. 10/13 SC correct, 2/11 CR correct...etc), as well as what specific types of each question you got wrong (in CR, 0/3 assumption questions correct, 2/3 weaken correct).

After you realize what section needs the most work, start concentrating on that. You don't really have a lot of time, so it's the area of studying that's most important. Quality over quantity!

Do a search around here. People have used a number of non-standard review materials to work on RC (LSAT material, etc.)

Also remember, aimlessly studying for hours on end can yield no improvement. Make sure your studying the right things to address your weaknesses.

With a verbal score that low, the test was probably throwing lower level SC and CR questions at you.

Reading comprehension takes practice. There are some posts here regarding using some LSAT.

Go through the RC forum and see what you come out with and check the book review threads:
