Retaking GMAT after 5 years - need help in verbal study plan [#permalink] New post 13 Nov 2007, 14:37

Friends,
I plan to retake my GMAT after 5 years. The first time around I scored 570(Q 47/ V23) after 5 weeks of preparation - a bad score and hence did not do anything about it then.

I am looking to improve my score substantially - around the 700's. I started my preparation this time by taking the crack gmat test (since it was already installed on my computer) and was disappointed with a score of 545. I am looking for advice in following a structured approach to tackle the verbal section. Also, information on the material to be used will be of great help.

Thanks

Thanks for your suggestions. One more question. The 1000SC does not have explanation for its answers. Is there a place I can refer to for answers? Or do I look for help on the forum.

I would look for help in the forum. Try searching for them first, though... there are tons of stuff out there.

I would also recommend the Manhattan GMAT Sentece Correction (red cover). It's been a great help to me.

When are you taking the GMAT?

I am not aware of this either.
Also, has anyone used http://www.litesee.com/

I find it very difficult to finish 25 questions in 15 minutes. Is that the expected pace?
