Help internationals in Verbal section [#permalink]

Hello, I took GMAT yesterday and got terrible scores.(Q50/V23.T620)
The problem is it is not my first exam. I already had took 3 times in two years ago-almost same score as now. Before I gor result, I expect high vebal score because I am studying in U.S and prepare 1 and half month, more than 6 hours per day.
Because I plan to go to ph.d in Business, that score is too low to apply to school. Unlike MBA course, Ph.D course require much higher GMAT scores, at least 700.
During the verbal section, I went to only 32th question but I saw 4 RC articles, it was really time consumming.

Could you advise me for higher score in verbal. I have to took class prep course such as Kaplan?, but my firend said that the approach of natives is very different and thus it is not so helpful to internationals.

Thanks

Hi,

What is your strongest question type?
What is your weakest question type?
What is your background in English or, more specifically, American English?

Are you a strong verbal student in a language other than English?

Thanks,
1. I think SC is the hardest especially in Test day, Sometimes Screen seem white.
2. I think CR is not so difficult.
3. Rc is really time consuming.
4.Time management is critical to me. I only solved 31 questions in Verbal section. But, many GMATter emphasize "accuraccy" How can I do?
