My target score is 680 V 36 Q47-i.e a 10 point increase in both quant and verbal.I am ready to do whatever it takes to achieve this end.i have already gone through power score CR bible
and the first 4 MGMAT books
once.I took a practise test after two months of prep fron june to august and was shattered.470 Q37 v19.So I have decided to start everything afresh(2 hrs a day on week days , 6 hrs a day on weekends)...
