Strategy / company to go from v40 to v45+ [#permalink] New post 24 Sep 2013, 12:46
Guys,

I have my GMAT in exactly a month from now. Overall, my performance is pretty good overall - scoring q50 - q51 and around v38 - v41. However, I would like to increase my verbal to v45+ (q51 - v45 is a killer). Is there -any- company or method that offers excellent training around this level? I am NOT looking for a method that starts at the basics, because I do not have the time and commitment to go over all of that again. I am only looking to consistently answer level 700+ questions correctly, especially in Sentence Correction.

I am hitting around 80% accuracy on level 700 CR / RC questions (at least, according to 'collection of level 700 questions' on GMATClub), but my SC is lacking behind.

Any company or method that will help me improve my score is appreciated. Prices are not a major decisive factor - quality is.

There are a few avenues to pursue. There is no course or book per se that will do it for you since you can't have a book on how to win a gold medal in olympics or earn $1MM per year (sorry, I stand corrected actually - there are hundreds of those books). Let me try again, in reality you need personalized help and the best way is to hire a tutor who can provide you with a personalized plan and save time at it. You can choose a cheap tutor or an expensive one. I believe Veritas Prep and MGMAT make their tutors available at $200 per hour. That's the best route in my opinion.

After certain point it's come down to basic things like reading speed/speed at which you can understand an argument. Unfortunately there is no easy way around this. I am not sure even a tutor can help someone go from 740 to 780. Maybe guys like Ron/Stacey can but my best guess is that majority of tutors would fail to help someone achieve that level. If you read some LSAT forum where people go from 90%ile to 99.9% ile you would find that people spend an insane amount of time doing threadbare analysis of past LSAT questions. Google "Blind Review" LSAT to get an idea.
