Strategy going forward. [#permalink] New post 02 Apr 2013, 16:43
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.

Let me know your thoughts.

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:

Let me know if you have any further questions.
Mike :-)
