Hello,

I am an indian candidate planning to apply for fall 2013 intake

My verbal in my last gmat was 30 and my AWA was 3.5 only, i dont have any problem with quant i scored 47 in quant in my last gmat and i am sure i will be able to score 49/50 in quant.

Now, i am retaking my gmat, so if my verbal improves then there is no issue, but i really want to demonstrate that i have worked on my verbal skills since last gmat attempt. so in verbal even if i end up improving 4/5 points, i have substantial points to talk about my efforts to improve my verbal

The first point that came to my mind was taking TOEFL , do you think that this will work ?

Else , please suggest me the ways by which i can demonstrate my serious efforts to improve my verbal when i apply next time.

Versatile,
Are you asking whether TOEFL will help you improve on the verbal GMAT? It can help you get more familiarity with english in general which is good. Probably sentence correction is an area that can directly help you the most. But since sentence correction is learning to apply a certain set of rules, if you get the right prep that alone could help you improve. The TOEFL is just additional practice/familiarity and perhaps you'll learn a few things as you study for TOEFL.

You'll need to identify whether the weaknesses in verbal are a particular section or overall. If overall, then studying for the TOEFL will not help verbal overall significantly. My guess is that it will help in familiarity which can help in SC, and *maybe* some of CR and RC.

Do you think good TOEFL score can help to offset low verbal ?

thanks
