I am planning to give my GMAT in a month. I have prepared for CAT earlier and so my concepts of quant are decent. I had given a practice GMAT test and scored a 50 in quant and 22 in verbal. I need to improve my verbal skills.
How do I begin my preparation for verbal.
Is it possible to improve it in such short time.
And when is the appropriate time to book a date.
what is your target GMAT score? if you are looking to improve verbal score by more than 10 points , it will take you more than a month.
It took me much more than that , years honestly , to reach V 34. But I was so happy the day I scored 700. It is a great feeling.
theory books ! theory books is what you need.
For my last attempt , I had stopped taking tests for a couple of months and created a strategy for each type of question.
There are many books out there for theory and it will take you good amount of time.
In my observation good theory books have minimal practice questions. I think thats a good sign if you are looking for theory books.
what helped me
SC - Manhattan SC
CR - Powerscore CR
RC - novels
a month for theory books and then a couple for practice. Dont ignore math please.....
i really dont think there is a shortcut for gmat prep
