Dear Mates,

just to let you to know that I'm starting my 3rd attempt to crack the gmat. After 2 previous chances in which I did poorly, I think this time will be different.

Relating to the math part, well, I'll try to do the same becuase I thing I did well: 49 in my last chance

Relating to the verbal part... aaah, here is where I have to improve a lot. I'll use the MGMAT manuals, and in the meantime I'll try to improve my reading skill, by reading news in cnn, financial times or in theonion.com

I'm having the text again on April 28th...

we'll see what happens!!

Cheers

hi JL,
Keep putting pressure on both math and verbal. Focussing on just one part may be harmful to some people (such as me).
For verbal: SC - you might need to go beyond MGMAT SC guide. I read Elements of Style by Strunk & White and extensively using online resources. CR - Powerscore's CR Guide is a good place to start.
Good luck in your prep!

I'd suggest that you read the Wall Street Journal, the Economist or Scientific American if you'd like to improve your RC score. Financial Times is okay too. But I wouldn't use cnn or theonion.com if your sole purpose to browse those sites is to improve your GMAT RC score.
