How to improve verbal with big push ? [#permalink]

Hello,

I took my GMAT yesterday and disappointed quite a lot with my verbal score. I got 610 (Q47, V27). I knew I am not that good at verbal but didn't expect score of this low...at least past 30 would have been littled convincing. This is first time I took GMAT.

I am looking for some good advice on how can I give big push for verbal while also improving quant further as much as possible. I want to beat 730+target in my next retake.

Does taking any course (like SC course from manhattan) on Verbal would help me ? So far I have used OG and Manhattan SC for my earlier preparation. What other resource, approaches would be beneficial in my situation ?

I am more than willing to put my effort down to earth to beat the target score. Please provide me your feedback which would help me to achieve this.

How much did you score in verbal in your practice tests?
You also got a V 27 (the magic number) that few others in this forum have got. If you have scored consistently above 35 in your practice tests, it is good to read the post by batiagp.

If you have consistently keeping 35+ in all your GMATprep CAT tests and Manhattan test then 27 is not just the score. It seems something really wrong with GMAT test. Well you do not have other options than reappearing for exam if you really like to go for a higher score.

I think you should practice with the SC1000 and CR1000 questions. Go through them until you start getting 9 out of 10 of them correct.
