Thanks for the replies.
Some info as sought: I am planning to give the test in 10-2 slot. So I am giving the test only during those timings. All the tests were given at home and under almost similar environment. Breaks are taken as instructed and the sections are taken at one go.
@BB: I gave the first test around 1.5 months ago. After that, I have been preparing mostly for SC, because my performance in other areas was fine as per my analysis. I gave the first MGMAT test within 2 weeks, I could not complete quant section (2 questions were left over) but I cannot really say, I took the test in professional environment. Study time was generally during office hours and/or after work. Material used was MGMAT SC
, OG 13
and GMAT CLUB
I continued to concentrate on verbal SC and added CR too (MGMAT verbal CR showed that I needed some improvement). After that I have been preparing for .5-1 hour a day and gave the 2 test last week. This time one verbal question left unanswered.
I was elementarily aiming to get 40+ V score as I was "assuming" my capabilities in quant. MGMAT seem to have toppled that, but I am now confused. However, I have now re-strategised and added quant too to my daily preparation.
My results are as follow:
CAT 1: Q 34, V 38 IR 3.7 (I have been giving IR too, could that be a factor?) 2 qns in quant were unanswered.
CAT 2: Q 43, V34 IR 5.27 1 question in Verbal was unanswered.
I am really desperate to cross the 40 barrier for verbal. I am confident about quant in spite of not-so-great performances, because I know I am not practicing quant.
Please let me know your views on my approach, should I continue to concentrate particularly on Verbal until I get desired results? I have now added a 30 minute slot for Quant review and practice, though.
