Folks: I need some advice from you guys about the GMAT verbal Section:
I've took the GMAT thrice and scored a 26,27,25. I've used the PR Cracking the GMAT
, Kaplan Verbal Workbook
and the OG and PR Online Material. During my practice tests i've scored scores as high as 42 and my "mean" score was around 35-36. I've took more than 10 tests (PR Online Tests, PP, PR CR-ROM).
During the real test i ALWAYS run out of time. I feel like the GMAT Verbal section (ive took the test thrice) is harder than the tests i've practised. I get easily frazzled with RC with lots of technical jargons/'words that i dont understand. During normal conditions (2 minutes per question for CRand 1.5 mins for SC I get atleast 80% of the questions right). But during the "real test" i run out of time and this has a "snow-ball" effect on my CRs and SCs.
What kind of material can i use to improve my RCs & CRs (something harder than the real GMAT test) so my timings get better; Would you recommend the LSAT RCs and CRs? My principles/conceptual workingsof CR and RCs is good. I just run out of time........During my practice i ALWAYS go back and figure out why i got something wrong and analyze my "train of thought" and see where i went wrong.
