Hi BB

I joined this forum today. I attempted GMAT for the first time yesterday and scored 630 (Q47, V28). However, My goal is to cross into 700.
I studied for the exam not so seriously for two months. I never joined any forum or read anyone's replys.
My GMAT Prep tests I and II were also 650 and 640.
I went through all MGMAT Books, OG 12, OG Reviews. Quite helpful for Quants.
I gave all MGMAT CAT exams and scored between 650 to 670.
My Quant is always between 47 to 49. My verbal is always between 29 to 33.
Exam pressure is not a problem for me. I have cleared all 3 levels of CFA examination but GMAT verbal seems to be a different trick altogether.

I know my weakness is verbal. I am planning to practice more on verbal.
If I am wrong, can you please correct me if my book selection is fine.
1> The PowerScore GMAT Critical Reasoning Bible
2> Read a lot from GMAT Fiction
3> Kaplan 800 for both Quants and Verbal.
4> A good grammer book for GMAT mentioned n 650 to 700+
5> Practice verbal from GMATClub tests

And a very serious studies (as I did for CFA) for next two months. Planning to take second attempt in jan last or Feb first week.

Please let me know if I should do any improvements in my plan.

I have a doubt about Kaplan Math Workbook. Is it really good? A friend of mine told me it was really basic and I found some bad reviews about it. I tested 47 twice in MGMAT and 44 in Kaplan, so I think it will not be easy to improve. I don't want to spend a lot with a good tutor but I would really like to break through the 50s in quant. Should I try this Kaplan book?

Nice and helpful post... I have got my motivation back to give the GMAT again... I have score a 690(Q48 V36)... I know verbal needs a lot of improvement. I am going to stick to improving my grammar basics and studying from MGMAT SC and CR.
The kind of English that these sources have is there at the top. Authors from Harvard and other top business schools write articles for HBR. Also try out some books from Harvard Business Press(If money is not a constraint)

I am planning to practice more Maths from Princeton, Kaplan Math Workbook and McGraw Hills GMAT. Will let you know how it goes.

Hi BB,

I've been following your posts quite closely. Plan to take the GMAT in a couple of weeks. Took MGMAT Online test about three weeks back (at night -dead tired after Office) and scored a 610. Checked the answers and found a lot of silly mistakes.

Now (hopefully) much better prepared. My goal is definitely a 750+ score. However, I don't feel very confident right now. RC is a worry. SC I get about 80% correct, CR about 75-80 (Kaplan CD).
I know I've not shared much background, but I am wondering how I can get my confidence that I can score 750+? BTW, I am on a month's leave from Office to prepare for the test. Any advice for a couple of weeks of intense prep which can make a difference in my final score?

Regards

*I apologize if this is against the rules of the forum - I tried to look for stickies about propriety but could not find anything specific, so thought I'd just try. I would appreciate it if a moderator could tell me where to properly post this response instead of just deleting it if it's inappropriate.*

Hi everyone,

If anyone is looking for some private assistance, I am a specialist in test taking and prep, and have worked with many students over the years to get over the 700 hump or even the 750 hump on a variety of tests - GMAT, SAT/PSAT, etc. I completed just 2 sessions over the past few weeks with a student who had previously scored 710 on the GMAT and just today told me that she scored 770 (references available upon request).

My own score is 790 (790 Math, 800 Verbal), and I can prove it with my official score report sheet.

I am looking for students who need help with trouble areas, or to give general advice about how to avoid the stagnation at the 700 level. I offer a free 15 minute consultation, then we discuss how to proceed further. I don't sell any "packages" - just the minimum you need to get the score you want. Just talk to my previous students - they'll tell you I don't beat around the bush and give you value added from the very first meeting.

I am not affiliated with any major test prep company, and develop custom plans for each of my students. I am based in Chicago and am a native English speaker and US citizen, but conduct my sessions via webinar online - I have very flexible schedules as test prep is the only thing I do right now.

Please PM me if you are interested in my services.

Thanks,
John

Hi BB,
I am non native English speaker with 2+ years of experience in IT industry with a big MNC .I started the GMAT preparation 6 months back.I gave the GMAT Prep Mock that time and scored 530 not sure about breakup score but i think it was (48 Q 23 V) .Since i am targeting 700+ so it was quite clear that i need to improve a lot.I am giving my best to study daily according to advices in the forum.
Quant will not be a big problem for me but verbal is a nightmare.
So for Verbal i have done following things:-
Studied Manhattan SC , power score CR and daily reading editorial page of newspaper(let me tell u i was never interested in reading at all before my preparation:) )
Till now i have practiced SC,Cr and RC from:
OG(10,11,12).
Grockit.

So after all this today my Mock scores are:-
Gmat prep - 660 (Q 49, V 32)
Manhattan Cat- 620(Q 43, v 33)(I was surprised to see my quant score, but digested finally since i have never practiced Quant for GMAT).

I have realized that i am improving gradually. One problem which i see in me is i am not able to manage the time in CAT.i.e am not able to finish verbal even..Every time i am making Quick guesses in the last RC passage of mocks.i have read timings strategies that this forum is mentioning but some how i am not able to apply probably because of the stress that ticking clock gives me .
I have to achieve my goal of 700+ for converting my dream to reality.

And Please Evaluate my Study Plan:-
1)Daily 3-4 Passages from RC99 and 10,11,12 OGs. Daily reading Fiction books. Got few books, mentioned in Gmat fiction post .
2)15 days assigned to SC -
Reading Manhattan SC chapter by chapter.
Practice all 3 OGs 10,11 & 12.
Also using Grockit Questions.
3) 15-18 Days CR
Power Score Bible CR chapter by chapter
Pratice Grockit and OGs.

Finished Verbal by now while doing Quant will give Verbal mocks from MGMAT and Gmat Prep.
4) 20-25 days to Quant . Practice from Grockit and OG 12.
After Finishing Quant will practice 6-7 Full tests.
Finally after revision of my weaknesses , Will Give the Exam.
