Hi all, I am pretty new to gmatclub. I had a small query. Typically how many questions does anyone who gets above 730 in GMAT get right in the verbal section? Which kind of questions do such people prefer solving (like RCs, CRs, SCs) ?

I used only the four practice tests and exercise sets available from mba.com. However, I did also take one free MGMAT. I found it to be deceptively hard.

What I am trying to say is don't over-study. If you score well (close to your target score) on the official practice tests, you should be in good shape.
