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:
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 .
Please HELP .....
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
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.
Thanks In Advance.
