Improving verbal score [#permalink] New post 04 Oct 2013, 06:40
Hi Guys,

I have recently taken GMAT and scored 660 (Q49, V32).
I completed Official Guide 2013 and Princeton Verbal. Post which I relied on mock tests for preparation. In each mock I scored between 680 and 710 (Q 42+, V37+). Hence, GMAT came as bit of a surprise.
I am planning to retake in 1 month and my target score is 720+ . Please suggest how can I improve my score.

Hi Prateek.

Thanks for the helpful links.
I face problems while implementing the concepts. During Mocks, I thought my problem area was RC and CR. But during actual test, i was not able to properly comprehend SC as well.
Are error logs really helpful?

I have one month to prepare and I don't know where to start from. :( :(

Quicky go though basics and practice 10 ques from each topic, maintain error log,after a week come back to it and re read the theory where you need improvement and practice og GC club under timed mode.

Error logs are extremely helpful and critical. Definitely mark down which questions you are getting wrong so you can review them religiously later.

If you are too lazy, you can also use online trackers like this one we made for OG: http://www.gmatpill.com/official-guide-gmat
