please advice - how to improve verbal [#permalink] New post 06 Apr 2011, 22:26
hi I took the gmat twice already once in college (710) and once last year in august and although I had planned to study before the test, due to a project I ended up taking the exam without any prior stuydiny (I did only 1-2 practice exams) and got 730 (Q51 - V36)
now I have 1-2 months of spare time before starting to write the essays and I want to try again in an aim to get 760 or higher..

first : is it worth taking the risk, spending the money and time?
second: what would the book you recommend to me.. I want to see hardcore verbal questions and will not spend any time on the Q section.

thanks a lot..

If you haven't used the Manhattan GMAT verbal books, get them.

I think most will agree that if you are really after hardcore verbal practice - you will want to get the LSAT materials - clubbers who have used them (either in the past for actual LSAT purposes or intentionally for GMAT purposes) have achieved remarkable results ( example: V50 )

I haven't gotten the GMATClub tests yet (I intend to), but from what I hear, they provide you with good 700+ practice questions (one of the toughest question/test packs from what I hear).

More:
Usefulness of LSAT books & materials?
LSAT for GMAT : GMAT
Review of Powerscore's LSAT RC Bible : GMAT Reading Comprehension (RC)

Even more here.

I hope this helps.
