A week isn't enough time to improve Verbal. You might want to consider postponing the test if your target score is way higher. Thereafter, you should get a complete set of verbal books (CR, SC and RC) and go through them thoroughly.

It's certainly possible to improve verbal, but it can take a while. If you want to take the time, let us know what your experience has been so far and what materials you have available. A few general tips:

1) Read every day. Read GMAT material, books, science magazines, everything. Push outside of your comfort zone--if you don't like history, make yourself read history articles! Make sure you are working to understand the material on a paragraph-by-paragraph basis.

2) Follow timed problems with untimed review of those problems. Focus on understanding why each right answer choice is right and why each wrong answer choice is wrong.

3) Know your grammar rules! Our Sentence Correction strategy guide is a great source. Then, of course, you need to practice applying those rules on Official Guide problems.

4) Always know what the question is asking. Reading Comprehension and Critical Reasoning questions are much easier if you have taken a moment to understand the question precisely. Then, if you interpret the material carefully, you will often have a good chance of predicting the right answer in advance. Don't rush into the answer choices!

Good luck!

Hi,

Thanks for the tips. I have a question. When i do SCs alone, CRs alone and RCs alone. I get almost everything correct. I have been studying for a long time and have a good hold of concepts i believe. However, when i sit to take a test, i screw up. I can't get to go beyond 35 in verbal which isn't good according to my preparation. Please help. What should i do to improve my verbal? My quant is around 49-50 and if i do well in verbal, i can get a good score.

Thanks for your time.
