Need suggestion on improving the score from 700 [#permalink] New post 30 Jan 2011, 05:45
Hi,
I have been consistently scoring around 700 in my practice mocks. But, my target is to score above 750.Until 700 it was easy for me. But now I am finding it difficult to move ahead and above 750. Request your suggestion on the preparation required to take the score above 750. For Your information I have scheduled my GMAT on June17 2011, which means I have plenty of time. Any suggestions will be highly appreciated.

Thanks and Regards,
Sashikanth.

Well, it appears that most of the opportunity will come from the verbal section. Books to use include the Powerscore Cr Bible and the Manhattan SC guide. For RC, incorporate some LSAT passages. And don't become passive while studying verbal. Read and re-read the books in order to be very familiar with all the concepts. Also, fully read every explanation - even for the questions that you answer correctly.

Your score is already quite high for quant, so perhaps use the GMATClub tests. These 25 tests will help to improve your performance in this section.

You really need to mimic test conditions as closely as possible (AWA, time limits, etc.). Otherwise, you end up with inadequate test preparation - an a lower test score.

A 700 is quite good, but what is the breakdown? That will allow us to identify any weaknesses. Focus on those areas, as they will have the biggest room for improvement.

I do have a few suggestions, but let's learn about your AWA, quant, and verbal scores first. Also, do you already know which areas give you the most trouble? And make sure to mimic test conditions as closely as possible during your CAT practice.

Hi,

I have not included AWA in my Practice. Breakdown was Quant ranging from 47-49 and Verbal ranging from 34-39.
