Hi guys ,
I am an active member of gmat club . But I dont post much ,just silently observe and learn from all the posts . I am Indian male working in a reputed IT firm with 1.5 yrs of exp ..did my Engineering from tier 1 coll (NIT Surathkal ...i doubt if anybody of u have heard it
) . Today I gave my gmat and scored a 700 (q-49 , v-35) . During my prep also I found it difficult to cross 40 mark in verbal . During Gmat exam also i mismanaged my time in verbal and had 11 questions left with 16 mins remaining . Quant was over with 4.5 mins remaining (not bragging but sersly if ur quant is strong dont waste mch time in preparing fr quant in gmat ).
I know with this score i wont any good college
, but just wanted to ask all the gurus on gmat club please advice how to push that verbal above 40 . I will literally slog for 24 hrs if required to do it . Any how I want to touch that 750 mark . Ya one more thing I started my prep in Mid dec(2012) and gave GMAT on 27 feb 2013. When i say GMAT prep that mostly constitues Verbal prep . Quant i used to do occasionally. (*Quant i dnt do mch bcoz i think When u prepare fr CAT it covers GMAT QUant .)
my performance -MGMAT Exams(sersly its way tuf than actual gmat ) 1-640 ,2-630,3-680,4-650,5-690,6-680
GMAT PREP 1-710
Plus it would be great if some one could advice me how to begin my second round of prep for gmat . the dos and the donts .
