How to improve verbal in a short period of time? [#permalink] New post 24 Jul 2011, 16:50
I've got 24 days til the GMAT, and I really don't think I have time to practice huge amounts of verbal questions, but I'd like to improve my score somehow, I still plan on doing a bit more studying for quant, as well as doing several more practice tests. I'd really like to improve my verbal score, and am looking for suggestions on what the best strategy might be at this point. Sentence correction is my best section, but I'm not doing great in any of the verbal areas. If it helps, my current practice test scores are:

June 3, 2011 GMATPrep 1 32Q 27V 500
July 6, 2011 GMATPrep 1 41Q 26V 560
July 10, 2011 MGMAT 1 35Q 32V 560
July 14, 2011 MGMAT 2 42Q 30V 590
July 17, 2011 GMATPrep 1 35Q 28V 540
July 19, 2011 MGMAT 3 43Q 32V 620

Please help!
Thanks!!! :)

Your scores in both sections are all over the place.

Do you know what subsections are dragging you down? Your score is only as good as your weakest section. You should work on your weakest area and then progress from there.

I took another MGMAT exam yesterday and it does seem like the scores are getting more consistent. I got 640 (44Q/34V), so hopefully this is a step in the right direction. I did take another MGMAT test today, but learned that it is obviously not a good idea to take tests two days in a row, as well as woke up not feeling well this morning. I wasn't really concentrating on the exam and it showed, as I only scored a 540. I will disregard that score, as it would not be an accurate indicator in my opinion.
I've only got one MGMAT exam left, as well as a GMATPREP one, so I think I am going to try the free ones from other companies now.
As for weak areas, for verbal, I seem to be a little bit better at SC than RC and CR, and for quant I need to improve in VICs, combinatorics, and exponents.
