Starting Again - Suggestions Needed [#permalink] New post 15 May 2006, 06:39
Hello Guys,

I am back after a pause :peek of more than 2 months because of my transfer from San Francisco to Atlanta. This time more determined :2gunfire: to get 700+ after getting 650 (Q-49, V-32) in my last attempt in March 06.

I know I have to improve on verbal. Any suggestions/plans keeping following things in mind:

1. Out of touch for more than 2 months
2. Completed PR, KAPLAN , OG11, KAPLAN 800 last time.
3. Can spare only 20-25 hours weekly.

After reading a lot about MANHATTAN GMAT guides, I have already purchased SC and CR guides.

ps_dahiya, welcome back! So nice to see old faces (names, in this case) :lol:

Seems like you are set with Quant. Verbal seems to be your nemesis, so since you are already finished with OG, I'd suggest working on the 1000 SCs and LSAT materials for CR and RC. Oh, and going through your error logs to refresh your memory.

For a newcomer here, could you tell me what the 1000 SC and LSAT material is?

Thanks.

1000 SC document can be found in a sticky post in the verbal forum. LSAT materials, you can probably buy them from Barnes & Nobles or Borders.

It seems You and I have the same weaknesses and strengths. I took the test couple of weeks back and was able to score Q50, V39.
In my case, I found 800score's verbal material to be very concise and very good. In case of SC, getting into POE mode is crucial. RC and CR offcourse is a matter of practice (I think).
Good luck.

Hi Ozmba2006,

Yes, I was referring to 800score.com. What I really like about the material was that it was concise. The 5 tests are also quite useful, although I don't see the point of the test pacer.
The extras like tips on essay writing etc are also good.[/quote]

Welcome back. Getting SC straight is necessary I guess to get good verbal score. And for this only practice can help.

Good luck.
