Struggling with verbal , despite reading a lot of material [#permalink] New post 26 Oct 2011, 09:42
Hey guys ,

I'm really struggling in the verbal part . A month ago , I took the PR CAT and scored a 28 on the verbal ( without any prep) section .

After that I studied the following :
1. SC - Veritas Prep SC - 1 & 2 , followed by about 200 questions from the 1000 SC series
2. CR - Powerscore Critical Reasoning Bible + Veritas Prep CR book + 200 questions from the 1000 CR Series
3. RC - Veritas Prep RC book + 100 questions from the 1000 RC series

I took another PR CAT test and I scored only a 30 in the verbal section . I can't quite understand how I'm improved so less despite studying so much for verbal . However , I took the Knewton Free Test on GMATCLUB test page and scored pretty well on that :
SC - I got 20/21 questions correct
CR - I think I got around 15/20 correct
RC - I got 8/12 correct

Please help , am I overreacting to the PR CAT results ?

Why don't you take a test from a source other than PR to confirm your suspicions? I haven't heard anyone say anything good about PR so i'm gonna assume that that's for a reason... Take a free test from ANY other prep company and see how you do.
