How to improve your verbal skills [#permalink] New post 16 Feb 2008, 01:48
I must say that I´m pretty new in the forum...I should have found you earlier!Anyway, I still have two months until my GMAT test. I´ve been practising with the GMAT review, with Kaplan 800 (difficult this one) and I´ve completed the Quantitative GMAT official book. I´ve just received GAMT premier program 2008 edition too.

When I started studying back in January I couldn´t almost solve any quantitative problems...however after 1 month I must say that I´ve improved a lot, not perfect but really good improvement. I believed that the most easier part would be the verbal but when I started solving problems I´ve seen that I was completely wrong. I am feeling now much more difficulty with verbal rather than with quant. Are there any good tips that you can give me to improve this part?

I still didn´t do any test. I am keeping the GMATprep tests to later on, is this a good decision?Or should I see what my score would be now and try to improve the most difficult parts for me? Any tips are valuable. I want to apply to INSEAD and I´ve seen that their average GMAT is around 700...I know that your application is not only your GMAT result though but...you know.

Can you help me to define my strategy for the next two months?Thank you for your help!! :wink:

Same to You people but mine is a little different. I can answer correctly all questions in OG but it takes a huge time [20minutes/RC]. I think I am able to improve this difficulty later. What you people think? Am I in right way? Oh I am 1 month old, GMAT student ofcourse and I am not a English native.
