Reached Verbal Plateau - Help!! [#permalink] New post 14 Sep 2013, 07:34
Hello e-GMAT Team

I am a student of SC Package on e-GMAT and my accuracy on any mock test is always above 75-80% on SC. So I am grateful for that.

I will be writing my GMAT again in another 20 days.

Last time I scored Q48, V33 : 660 on the GMAT with a a flawless 6/6 in AWA

Right now, I am using MGMAT CAT's as a standard to test my verbal score and raise the score. Last 3 mock's the verbal scores have been 38,37,38 ( almost constant for last three weeks, even after more study hours ) while Quant scores have been 49,50,46 respectively. I am pretty confident in Quant.

In case of verbal I have been always lagging behind time and by the time I reach 29-30th question , I have roughly 10 minutes to spare only. What I have seen is that due to shortage of time , whenever RC comes in last 10 mins (and it always does on MGMAT) I am completely not in a position to read the passage and answer it. My RC accuracy , whenever RC comes in last 10 Questions is below 30% !! This can have other effects , because of pressure I might make other silly mistakes on CR and SC.

Should I instead focus on getting other questions right and just guess the last RC and move on? Or should I try spend lesser time on CR and RC (my strong areas) so as to make out time for the last RC during a CAT?

I am afraid of guessing on the last RC as I have heard the last few questions matter a lot in calculation of the final score . Need inputs! Thanks!

I need to get above 40 on verbal to acheive my score of >720 ! Please help.

For last 20 days , do suggest any other resource that I should go through [CAT , Study Materials etc]

Hello e-GMAT Team

I have seen tremendous improvement in SC with the help of your course.

I have also purchased CR Course package and I aim to finish it within next 10 days . I already have a good understanding of CR but I don't want to leave any stone un-turned to make it successfully through GMAT. My GMAT is 16 days away. Last time the score was 660.

Can you please guide me on RC as per my query above so that I can cross the V40 on GMAT? Currently
