I passed my 2nd attempt this morning and I had Q44 and V20. (my first attempt was Q39 and V21)
I don't know how to improve my verbal. I know that I am too slow in the Verbal part. I took too much in the first 12 questions but I had to rush in the last 10 questions. I took time to analyze the questions.
Did a tutor is helpful to improve ?
Some advices ?
There is a lot of scope of improvement in Verbal. Speed isn't the primary concern. Instead, you should worry about conceptual understanding and your comfort with English language. To remedy conceptual understanding, there are many options:
1. Self study - You need to get a complete set of books for CR, SC and RC. You need to go through the entire theory of these sections and then do lots of practice questions. You will know exactly what to do in each question type. It will help you think faster too. If you plan to pick this option, you can check out our books at http://www.amazon.com/Critical-Reasonin ... s+critical
2. Classroom Course - You can also consider taking a course - in-class or online. In the class, each type of question is discussed in detail and you are taught how to handle it.
3. Private tutoring - A great option if expenses are not a concern. A private tutor teaches you exactly what you need to know and forms a schedule for you to follow. You can work on each individual section till you are satisfied.
As for comfort with English, you need to start reading a national English daily and magazines/books of interest. GMAT doesn't test your proficiency in English (since it's an international exam and for many people, English is not the first language), but it does test your verbal comprehension and reasoning skills since English is the international business language.
