PLS HELP - from Q32 V29 to Q48 V27 [#permalink] New post 28 Feb 2009, 15:55
Hello All,

Just got back from GMAT test center. I improved my score from 530 to 610 but was really expecting around 700.

I thought I had Verbal under control but I guess I was wrong.

Guys, I want to go to NYU for part time MBA.

Q1. With 610, can I make it to NYU part time? What else can I do to get into NYU (extra course work/credits etc.,)?
Q2. How can I improve my Verbal score from 27 to say around 37? (I did all the Manhattan series books + numerous GMAT prep tests)
Q3. What other good schools can I get into?

I am down but hopeful that I will crack this test. But with family, work and health issues its getting a bit tough.

Thank you in advance.

Welcome!

Verbal is the toughest area for the majority.
Do you know which area you need to improve the most? 27 to 37 is a significant jump and there are specific books and strategies for each (RC, SC, CR)

Hello bb,

Honestly, I think if I can improve from 32 to 48 in Q then I can definitely improve from 27 to around 37 in Verbal.

I do need help in SC. When I read the sentence (SC) I think I understand what the problem is and majority of the time I can narrow down to 2 answer choices but will end up picking the wrong one.

Also, in CR, I do find assumption questions tricky.

Thank you,
Dreamer

By the way, your Q2 and Q3 would probably find more attention in the appropriate MBA forums. Most folks move over there by March and then it is the other way around June through October.

If you are mostly suffering from SC, that's great - it is a much easier area to improve than RC and I can recommend to you the usual suspects - Manhattan GMAT SC Book and Kaplan Verbal book. They seem to resonate with most people. After you are done with them, it is usually nice to polish it off with OG if you have it or if not, you can get the OG Verbal Guide. Even though it does not really have any strategies, it does have the real questions, which Manhattan and Kaplan do not, so the Verbal OG will get your ear tuned, so to speak.

However, my secret weapon against SC was a book currently discountinued - not sure why as I loved it and still have a frail copy in my library: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/076458 ... 0764586092


Edited to add: actually my SC book was previous edition from 1995:

Gurpreet,

I did all MGMAT Math books (revised them numerous times) and GMATClub tests (2 times). Also, make sure that you do GMATPrep tests multiple times. Even if the test is a repeat, you will still have some new questions in it. So keep doing them over and over unless you dont see any new Math questions.

KEEP THE CONFIDENCE HIGH WHILE DOING THE TEST AND DONT SPEND TOO MUCH TIME ON A QUESTION. KEEP MOVING IN THE TEST.

Thank you.
