Help for Improving Scores [#permalink] New post 19 Jul 2012, 20:27
Hi,
I have been following GMAT Club since long, but this is my first post.
I am from India, a Management Graduate with 3 years for work experience in both pubic and private sector.
I had given GMAT last year and got 460, a dismal performance which was not good for any course admission.

I am trying again this year...studying almost 5-6 hours daily. But, could not see any major improvement in my score.
My scores are
GMAT Prep Test1 520
Manhattan1 530
Manhattan 2 580
Manhattan 3 530

I am following Manhattan Study Guides, GMAT Club, and some material from a coaching center in India.
I plan to take GMAT in the last week of August or first week of September.

Please advice how to improve my current scoring by 120-150 points.
Looking forward for sooner response.

How do you study exactly? what were your verbal/quant breaks and what strategies do you apply?

Those are very, very important to figure out in order for you and anyone here who might help you to understand.

Thanks Andy,
I have done all Manhattan guides, Veritas questions and lot of other online questions.
My Individual scores in Quant and Verbal are as under
MGMAT 1 Q34 V24
MGMAT 2 Q42 V29
MGMAT 3 Q33 V39

Right now I am doing 25 SC questions from 1000 SC daily. 20 CR and atleast 4 passages daily for Verbal under time limits.
For Quant, I do not have any strict regime. I sometimes doe Manhattan Questions, test,GMAT prep etc.

I have ordered OG 13th Edition for more practice.

Are you keeping an error log?

Standardized tests are designed to exploit weaknesses. If you have certain innate behaviors when approaching math or verbal questions, simply doing problems and reading explanations is not always helpful. An error log is key to overcoming these types of obstacles.
