I started preparing for the GMAT in June 2012 using the Veritas books
. I studied just for the Quant and I didn't spend anytime studying the Verbal because I though ''Ok .. English is not my first language so my verbal skills cannot be improve in just one or two months". In July I took the real GMAT test and I got (33Q / 13V)
I was really disappointed
Then I decided to study for one more month to see what will happen. I bought Kaplan
book, then I study just the Quant without the Verbal. After one month I took the test again and I got (31Q/16V)
I said Ok this is it I will not take the test again.
However, In November, I decide to study for the verbal along with the Quant from Manhatten books. I spent one month and half preparing for the test. then I took the test and I got (38Q/23V). It was a real relief to me because I saw an improvement and I realized that with the right way of studying I can do much better.
Now, I am planning to take the test for the third time in at most two months. So I don't have much time but I believe that I can increase my score especially if I know the right way to improve my verbal skills. I said to myself, your quant skills will not improve that much in this little time you have but your verbal might improve a lot if you know how to deal with it.
please I need your advice and encouragements.
