Hi
I have given two Mock test ,details of which are as below

GMAT PREP
530
Quant : 46 73 percentile 14 Wrong
Verbal :17 12 Percentile 16 wrong

- After i finished the quants part, developed a opinion that quants was not upto the mark.
& screwed the verbal part for the same reason
- The result was totally different of what i thought.
Probably a lesson to learn.

Vertitas
600

Quant : 46 8 Wrong ( 2questions wrong in a row)
Verbal :28 16 wrong ( 8-rc , 4- sc , 4- cr)

Satisfied with Quants, will follow up with practice questions to aim 49- 50
So the main cause of concern is RC.
Please suggest how can i improve in RC so that i dont make mistakes in row, which affects my overall scoring.

Gmat date- 17th September , so still have time to improve verbal skills

For a discussion on various question types, check out the Veritas RC book. It also has tons of tricky passages where you can apply the strategies you learn. Needless to say, try to read as much as you can (though you won't be able to see much effect of this strategy in a month). The verbal section of this forum has a 'books to read' link. Check that out.
