I took the GMAT yesterday again. and got a lousy Q42 and V33. I feel misled by my MGMAT CAT verbal scores. Clearly, my GMATPrep and real GMAT Verbal scores show that I am lacking in something. There seems to be a clear disparity between GMAT verbal and Manhattan GMAT
I felt really, really good coming out of the Verbal section. I thought I pretty much nailed it until I saw the score. I am dismayed, distraught. Please tell me what I need to do, tutoring? Classes, OG / Supp questions? I will do anything it takes. Just tell me.
I have gone through Arisotle SCs. I don't think SCs are my problem. I may occasionally miss 1-2, but I am pretty good at spotting the errors now.
I have gone through powerscore CRs, it helped a bit but maybe I need to do something else.
I never really practiced RCs because I believed this is where I was strongest in verbal. But perhaps the 700+ type RC passages really trick me.
But seriously, how can I get the same Verbal score from my base line in 7/1 of last year (when I didn't know my left and right for SC questions, let alone, CR arguments vs premises, etc)
7/1 550 (Q32, V33) gmatprep 1 (baseline)
1/7 640 (Q43, V35) gmatprep 1 retest
2/4 640 (Q44, V33) mgmat 1
3/10 650 (Q40, V39) mgmat 2
4/7 680 (Q44, V38) gmatprep2
4/26 620 (Q42, V34) gmatprep2 (retest on the new gmatprep 2.0 software)4/30 590 (Q40, V31) real GMAT (had to pee in the middle of verbal)
7/14 670 (Q42, V39 IR 3.87) mgmat 3 (ran out of time on the last 2 verbal questions)
7/21 660 (Q42, V38, IR 3.73) mgmat 4
7/24 710 (Q47, V40, IR 4.57) mgmat 5
7/28 700 (Q44, V41, IR 0) mgmat 6
8/4 680 (Q47, V36, IR 8) GMATPrep 18/6 610 (Q42, V33, IR ?) Real GMAT (second time)
Please help me. Thanks!
