Need some motivation and advice to achieve that 700 !!!!! [#permalink] New post 08 Jun 2009, 11:07
Hi,

I think the tests here are helping me do good in Quant and for the first time, today I took the GMAT prep Test and to my horror, I scored a 580!!! (Q47, V23)....
Break up fo Verbal score: SC (10/17), CR (4/11) and RC(6/13).......

I really need serious improvement in verbal. This is what I have done so far:

Kaplan verbal workbook, OG11, Manhattan SC guide

Yet, I am lost somewhere and when there is a pressure for time, I really do bad in RC......as far as CR is concerned, I tend to choose the wrong of the 2 last alternatives (1 of which would be right).........same thing with the SC.........
Guys (all the genuises!!) need some help here...........what should I do to improve this ridiculously bad score in verbal???? Should I revise the above again...........any suggestions for a gameplan? I am more than willing ot devote the required time to verbal since I think Quant would suffice.......

Thanks all in advance!!!

The tests in GMAT CLub tests helped me see the details in a question, especially number properties where i would assume certain properties or overlook a detail. Also, the way you tackle problems changes after going through those problems.
It's worth taking those........

gmatprep09, I know you are already reviewing the Manhattan Sentence Correction book but just want to make sure you are using either the Third or the Fourth edition as they have significantly more coverage than the previous versions. The additional coverage could be very helpful.

For CR, The PowerScore GMAT Critical Reasoning Bible is a great resource. I think it helped me quite a bit. It is a lot of reading but if you put your mind into it you can complete a chapter or two a day and finish the book in a week.

Regards,

Nookway

Thanks Nookway,

I already go the Powerscore CR 2 days back and finished about 1/2 the book and highlighted the imp points to attack the paricular kind of ques.

I have the old Manhattan SC and havent really gone thru it entirely.

So, seems I have a long way ahead ........thanks for the suggestions........

Work on stamina and time management..like you said..you feel pressured for time. This is exactly what the test makers want to happen. They want to see you panic when you are under pressure...and possible make bad choices....

Outwit the test makers......

Two things everyone need to consider
1) Proper understanding of material
2) Time management - Very important

I agree with other member, Manhattan SC 3rd or 4th edition is the best source available and IT WORKS too...Understand Powerscore CR Bible....again the best available....

GIve 5-6 practice tests...basically to get your mind working under stress....and then again give GMATPrep....I assure you... you will get improvement...
