Need guidance to Improve Verbal Score !!! [#permalink] New post 31 Aug 2012, 11:39
I am preparing for GMAT from last 1.5 months.
I have gone through Manhattan SC, Powerprep CR and OG 12 ( CR and SC completed, working on other section)

I gave MGMAT GMAT 1 - 520 ( Q46, V 17) ( 1month back)
GMAT Prep 1 - 560 ( Q 49, V 17) (2 weeks back)
MGMAT GMAT 2 - 590( Q 44, V 27) (today)

I am sure that can improve Quant score till 50-51.
But looking for suggestion to improve Verbal. ( currently my accuracy in verbal is 67% in CR, 65% in RC and 40% in SC)

I have booked GMAT date as 18th of Oct.... Please suggest... and share your experience...


Thanks & Regards
Prem

To improve your GMAT score, you need to focus on your areas of weakness. Your data suggests that you should absolutely be focusing on SC. You say you did the MGMAT strategy guide, so that is a good start, but you probably need to review it again and take a "topic" based approach. You should start with a category of grammatical issues, subject/verb agreement for example, and work through the section in the strategy guide along with the associated pracitce problems. Then look at the OG problems that test subject/verb agreement. Spend LOTS of time reviewing your work, both the questions you got right and those you got wrong. The explanations in the OG aren't amazing, but they do a pretty good job showing the various errors in each choice. You goal should be mastery of the topic, not just completing all the problems.

How is your timing?

Do a lot of SC questions. One at a time and try to get something out of each question.
Understand what is wrong with every answer choice for each question. Search the questions here for explanation. Great resources and people here but take everything w a grain of salt.
