Ok, I have been posting a lot recently. I hope my GMAT practise scores would be directly proportional to the number of posts(just kidding,bad joke :-D )
So, I took my third MGMAT CAT today and scored a 590. I'm not happy but I'm relieved that there is some progress.Unfortunately, my individual section scores are not really steady. I need your suggestions/opinions on this.

The schools that I am targetting need a 620-650, apparently the mid-80% range has in increased to 640 from the earlier 600. I need to make sure that my scores stabilize to 650.
Here is the break down:

MGMAT CAT 1 520 Q40,V21 --- got almost all RC wrong ----------22 jan
MGMAT CAT 2 530 Q33,V31 ---I feel the Verbal score may be fluke,got many CR right ---29 Jan
MGMAT CAT 3 590 Q44,V27 ---I guessed on 2 quant quest, RC accuracy is up, CR and SC are down--------8 feb

Clearly the only explanation is that you are possibly getting less intelligent as you study more. It is probably a negative linear relationship.

Since your Q is pretty good and V pretty low I'd suggest focusing the most on verbal.
Have you scheduled GMAT?

Yes, my Verbal score seems to fluctuate a lot. I wonder what this could mean,
GMAT is on March 26 - 45 days to go :)

My opinion/advice would be that you should first and foremost focus on improving your basics and worry about tests later :-)

Yeah, typically my SC and CR questions in OG questions have weird patterns - sometimes right and sometimes wrong. I really need to improve that

EDIT: is it possible to improve these 2 sections in under a month?

Beside the MGMAT guides, are you using other materials to prepare for the exam?

SC Grail, RC99, PS CR, and GMAT club test are some of the materials that will help you become more prepare for the test.

I would not worry about test scores at this point and continue to work work on fundamentals. Your quant is pretty good. I would work on SC as improving scores in SC is the the easiest.

I am using only MGMAT guides for my entire prep except for CR,in the CR part I couple MGMAT CR with Powerscore CR.

Yes, my quant scores are ok. Frankly, I will be happy with a 40 too on the real test. But, I need a 35+ in the verbal part.
I am using the MGMAT SC book, not reviewed it entirely though. Still in the Basic section. I need to do the Advanced part. May be once I review SC and CR a little more, I could take another test to see where I stand.

I have been working on CR recently just to make sure that I learn the basic' right answers' and 'wrong ones'. I have reviews 3 question types uptil now: Assumption, Strengthen, must be true Questions.
After having completed the MGMAT CR guide and powerscore CR guide, I find that my accuracy has still not improved. I get about half the quest wrong. Could this be a case of an inverse relationship between my studying and accuracy? I'm really worried now because when I was not concentrating so much on CR strategies, I found that I performed the same,if not better :( .
