Hey all,thanks for taking time out and reading.I wanted to take advise from all of you to improve my score.In terms of my score, I have come a long way(like really from 470 to 600ish),but somehow I am feeling that plateau effect.I have given three tests so far and scores are:- GMAT prep1 = 670(48Q34V) GMAT prep 2 = 650 (46Q32V) Kaplan online test = 660

Verbal --

I mostly used MGMAT SC and Powerscore books.I have tried OG12/13.I frequently commit mistakes in Sentence correction(5-6 q wrong) and 2-3 Q in RC(due of lapse in concentration)

What should be my action plan to improve my verbal score and how to gauge the progress?

For Quant, I have identified some of my areas and I would like to see Q50 by working on them.Whatever I have read on the forums it is matter of 3-4 more questions.

-Work on Geometry,Probablity questions to improve my Math score.
-Keep working on Number props.

But the real boost I need is in verbal like a V38 and above is what I am aspiring for.

Thanks.

Dear arkle,

I'm happy to share what I can.

I don't know your time frame remaining, but I want to recommend this 3-month study plan that is simply designed for folks in your situation:
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/3-month-gm ... l-focused/
If you have less time remaining, perhaps you can pick and choose from that plan --- certainly some of the introductory stuff would be too basic for you at this point.

On the math side, here's a blog:
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2013/how-to-stu ... gmat-math/
You will also find several articles about geometry on that free blog.

On the verbal side, here are a couple collections of questions:
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2013/gmat-criti ... questions/
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2013/gmat-sente ... questions/
That second collection links to a bunch of individual articles, each one explaining grammar points you may find helpful.

I hope all this helps. Let me know if you have any further questions.

Mike

Mike, Thanks for taking time out and guiding me. It seems to me that the way to improve is practice and more practice.Unfortunately, there is no shortcut which I can take and skip the good ol' fashioned hard work.I have read many people talking about going over OG 12/13 multiple times.I wonder how much that help.What purpose does that solve. Also, what is your opinion about 1000 CR/SC/RC. Thanks so much.

Dear Arkle,

I am not familiar enough with the 1000 CR/SC/RC to comment. Here are some reviews I will recommend:
