I started studying for the gmat during the last days of december. now i scheduled the exam on the 20th feb. i would like to get a 720 score, but i don't know if it is possible since i don't have much time. here's the practice tests i took.
I'm non native English
1 Gmatprep 1 660 q44 v37
2 Gmatprep 2 700 q49 v35
3 Manhattan 650 q45 v34
740 q51 v35
5 Gmatprep 1 680 q48 v35
i see that i can't improve my verbal and i'm stuck to 35. i think my weak point is RC, especially the question like "according to the argument". i have to read again the whole test and i often don't get it. the other parts in verbal i think with more attention i may score better. any suggestion?
time management is ok. no problem about that
And another problem is that i'm really bored to face RC question. I postponed a lot of time excercising on that:P but realy it's too much:(
Your scores are good; the lowest you have scored is 660 with an average of around 690. A score of around Q49, V38 would place you around 720 in GMAT.
Yes, RC could be a pain and could be really boring as it usually contains topics that we do not really read frequently. I think you know the solution to your problem. If you are scoring well on SC and CR then surely you need to improve on RC.
You have 12 more days left; in this circumstance I would advise you to not adopt a totally new strategy for RC because you will not get enough time to practice. What best that you can do during these days to make your mind as familiar as possible with GMAT language. Attempt a few RC passages from official guides and GMAT prep daily. Even If you do not attempt RC daily, try to just read a few official passages. I did the same, and I too struggled in RC.
Solidifying your concepts in Inference CR question would also help you greatly in solving RC inference question and in general. Most of us face challenge in answering inference questions in RC. Moreover, if you can answer SC well, you will have some backup time which you can utilize in RC. In the last two weeks it's all about solidifying your existing concepts and optimizing our strategies.
I would also suggest that you take 2 -3 retakes of GMAT prep before the actual deal.
Last but not the least focus more on verbal but do not neglect quant. You have good quant test scores and a score from 49 to 51 would compensate for a few score points in Verbal.
All the best.
Hope that helps,
Press Kudos if you want to say thanks
