I am in urgent need of suggestions or advises. I have my GMAT exam coming in exactly 2 weeks from
now. I have been preparing for quite sometime now and was very poor in Verbal when I started. This will be my second attempt as in the first attempt my verbal score was poor(V27).
I started studying from MGMAT books
and then moved to OG questions. For the past couple of months I have been studying regularly. I have been giving MGMAT exams and started scoring (V33-V37). However then I decided to take GMATPrep exam and when I saw my Verbal score I was heart broken. I scored V27. Even after regulary studying and getting those earlier scores, I performed so badly.
Now I am clueless as to how to proceed with just 2 weeks left and how to improve my Verbal GMAT score.
Any suggestions or advice. I am feeling really disappointed now.
At this point, perhaps you should consider only re-doing the OG problems that you've studied and done before. Be honest with the amount of time you give yourself, and see whether you have the same oversights as when you first started. I myself had studied a long time yet didn't gain much understanding on verbal until I re-did a lot of the OG problems I got wrong. After all, you now see that a huge weakness exists in MGMAT verbal books in that all the examples are overly simplified and perfect English. Whereas in OG you have to make trade-offs among each of the five answer choices. I hope this helps.Posted from my mobile device
+1 Kudos if my comment was helpful. Thanks!
Failure forges confidence, and confidence cultivates success.
Proving the answer choices wrong is almost better than calculating what is right.
