How to improve V27 to V35+ [#permalink] New post 14 Mar 2012, 10:43
I have taken GMAT twice and each time i got 27-28 verbal. ( I am a non-native speaker.)

Can someone refer good plan and material to improve in Verbal?

Planning to retake GMAT by last week of May 2012. i am working as a Manager at large cap so the time is limited.

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Hi,
you have scored well in quant but verbal is the main concern for you. Go through OG 10 & 12 and Verbal review couple of times and you will realize that plenty of questions that you encountered in your GMAT was of the similar pattern . You should also read Powerscore CR Bible if Cr is a weaklink for you. For RC go through MGMAT RC and try to utilize the strategies mentioned in it . Once you will do all this , your score will definitely go above 35. Wish you best of luck for the next GMAT attempt.

Hi,
For improving the score in quant , you should go through the MGMAT Advanced quant & Jeff Sackmann Total Math. Since you are already scoring 49 in quant ,you should do the higher level questions,Typically the 700 level ones and you can get them in plenty here buddy.
Hope it helps :?

For verbal, its going to be PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE, that's all. I feel it different than math- where yes a lot of problems do help but it's more about taking the test and learning the theories once you hit a 45 and above. For verbal, i'm having trouble getting from a 35-diagnostic to a 40-42. This week I pounded SC and did a lot of cr, I just took a manhattan gmat and got a 38, so improvement already. If I were you I would just try to do as many passes and cr as you can to get the hang of it. Good Luck!

I think you should focus on SC and CR. You should really understand all the rules in the SC part, you can solve most of the SC problems just by applying the rules. One part that is tough for non-native speakers is the idiom part and I don't really think you can improve in a short amount of time to really handle these types of questions well.
You can also improve a lot on CR, I'd suggest to get either the Manhattan CR guide or the CR Bible. It takes some time to get used to the GMAT logic though.
RC is the toughest part to learn in a short amount of time, you can try to read as much as possible, but if you lack the vocabulary it's tough to get through a challenging text like those on the GMAT. If you struggle due to other reasons, I'd suggest to read articles on science, economics, business, politics and history.

A verbal score of 41 is very good.

I disagree that your verbal strategy should simply be "practice, practice, practice"---Practice is definitely important. But many students find they get "stuck" at a certain level. Well, if you follow the "more practice = higher score" logical fallacy, you'll end up in this pitfall.

Do make sure you mark down questions you get wrong and review them religiously at the end of the day and again the next day.

SC is the easiest section to improve.

For RC - improving is a lifelong journey. For short term improvement and for purposes of GMAT, you may find this link useful:http://www.gmatpill.com/practice-questions-explanations-gmat-prep/gmatpill-releases-reading-comprehension-pill-video-guide-rc/
