Improving the GMAT score-Based on personalised details [#permalink] New post 29 Sep 2013, 00:22
Dear All,

Good Day!!!

I have been targeting a GMAT score 600-630. However my score was fluctuating between 530 and 580(MGMAT TEST) and 530 in GMAT test prep 1(not taken the 2nd test yet). I am able to score in Quant at an average from 39 to 42. My verbal is not going above 30, it just fluctuates between 23 to 27. My aim as per the score comparison chart against the scale I need to achieve 42 in Quant and 34 in verbal to get my desired score. I am pretty confident that I can nail the required score in Quant(but not greater than 42 I suppose as I am aware of my strengths) but Verbal will bring me down I guess. I have made analysis on the verbal part of exam and not able to get the areas where I want to improve. This is because sometime I score good in SC bad in the other 2 section or vice versa. Please also note that in 2011 I took the exam and got 450(I know it is devastating). I am using the materials such as OG 12 and 13, OG quant and verbal supplement(for OG 13), manhattan 8 series book based on OG 12. Please help me out my to improvise my study plan as I have scheduled the exam 30 days from now. Thanks in advance to you guys for the information.

Best Regards,
MBA aspirant.

You have excellent recourse, just make sure your learning 100% before moving to next topic...Few things to make learning innovative..

---Jot down points or create a short guide.
---Once you finish a topic just try to explain the whole topic to yourself.
---Give value to OG questions and solutions.

You have a lot of resources - put them to actual good use.

Don't just skim through the OG books - record your answers, revisit them, view video explanations: http://www.gmatpill.com/official-guide-gmat

For a 30 day study plan - be sure to first focus on your weakest section. Dedicate at least 5 entire days solely on that one section before dedicating 5 full days on your second weakest section. Details are here: http://www.gmatpill.com/gmat-practice-t ... study-plan
