Help needed on strategy to ace gmat verbal [#permalink] New post 01 Mar 2013, 01:04
Hello,
I had completed practicing verbal questions from both OG 12 and Verbal Review Supplement 2nd edition once. I answered around 65% of all the verbal questions correctly. I studied from Manhattan strategy guides before solving questions. I also looked for explanations for the questions that I answered incorrectly and recorded in my error log where I made mistakes. Now that I am finished with this stuff, what to do next to improve my accuracy in answering questions correctly?
Kindly help me out!

Make a grid. See the question types where you are making mistakes consistently. Mark the accuracy in each section. Identify the section that is your strength and the section which is your weakness. For example sentence correction may be your strength where the accuracy is 90% and RC may be the weakest where the accuracy may be only a 50%.Work more on your weak area. Also in each section categorise the question types according to your own personal order of difficulty. For instance in the CR section you may find the assumption question to be the most difficult and strengthen ones to be the easiest. Make a map for each section in a similar way and try to master the techniques for answering a particular type of question. If you are done with OG 12 move on to OG13. Also try the drills from Manhattan books. It is important to try all the questions of OG 12 and OG13 twice if you are targeting a 700+ on the GMAT.

A small suggestion : OG12 and OG13 are almost similar. You wont get different questions in both the guides. What you can alternatively do is register for a test series . Your preparation also depends hugely on mock exams. Since there is no information about how many mocks you have taken, i suggest take enough for the d-day preparation. And do a lot of practice after analyzing your weak points through Error Log..

I would make a problem set of the ones you got incorrect last time through and then do them under timed conditions in sets of 10. Make sure you know why every answer choice is right/wrong. I would definitely recommend the error log as well. The more you practice the better you will get at seeing the patterns that they use to trip you up.
