Ebzy, it defintely is possible for you to hit a 560.
Focus on your verbal. Based on what I've seen, bringing up your verbal score will do much more for your overall score (especially to get to 560). Also, I believe you are on the steep part of the curve, so a little bit of improvement in performance will translate into very significant gains in score.
I highly recommend taking the Manhattan GMAT
CAT and thoroughly
going thru the Overall Score Review afterwards. They do a good job of breaking down various different question types (reading comp, sentence correction, critical reasoning) and topic types. Learn to drill down and detect your weak areas.
There are certain strategy concepts, such as clumping sentence correction choices, and pre-answering critical reasoning choices, that should get you to your goal.
I have been studying for the GMAT for a total of about 3 weeks off and on. I recently scored a 460 on both Kaplan
and GMAT club. I have 2 weeks or I can reschedule for 2 weeks after that. So I either have 2 weeks or a month to prepare. I need a 560 to be competitive in the program that I am applying for. This is not the average but a little below, but what the admissions consultant over the program told me I should score. I made a 30 on the Q and a 24 on the verbal. I have gone through Cracking the Gmat Princeton Review
book, and have work about 1/2 of the Original Guide Quant questions. I have taken CATs prior to this starting at a 380 and 470 being the highest. Is there any way that I will be able to complete this goal, or should I just try the next semester. I already have my application prepared with work experience, recommendations, etc. Any suggestions? I study when I am off work from about 5-10 everyday, and on the weekends for full days, so time and effort is not the issue.
