just gave my gmat on 23rd and got 640(V-32,Q-47). Yeah i am from engg background and thats why I maybe i am strong in quant, but my english is also not bad. I did study from manhattan sc(3 times), read powerscore lsat reasoning and did everything possible to get atleast 40 in verbal. In the first gmat prep, got 680 and in the second got 710, so was expecting atleast a 700. had also solved all the problems from og. apart from that also solved 1000 scs. Whenever I used to get answers wrong, I would straight search in gmatclub.com and would always make mental notes on the reason why the answer selected was wrong.
After reading my story, can anyone tell me if i can ever touch 700? or should i just resign to my fate?
Basically even while I was giving the verbal section, at no time could I imagine that I was getting many of my answers wrong. I wanted atleast 740 so I could try for ISB after 3 years when I would have 5 years work ex. But now it seems next to impossible. I am prepared to give one more shot if any one of you can guide me how should I target verbal.
badly needing help.
rohans84, don't be discouraged. My first attempt also yielded a 640 and after two more tries I was finally able to achieve a score that I was satisfied with.
