URGENT - Verbal Prep course [#permalink] New post 18 Sep 2011, 23:55
Hi all,

I am really struggling with my verbal score. I have my GMAT retake in about 7 weeks and want to approach the verbal section differently. I score around the 27 - 28

What I did last time around:

Books used: MGMAT SC, CR, RC
Practice: OG 12 SC (exhausted), CR and RC

I find CR and RC the toughest. To make it even harder, I am based in Melbourne Australia where not many in person classes are held. I don't mind going in for an online course or even a private tutor. Could you please guide me.

Appreciate your help.

Hi Aanchal,

Indeed CR and RC are perhaps the most difficult sections of the verbal portion. RC, in particular, is not easy to teach.

See if these videos in RC are helpful for you: ... -guide-rc/

For CR, it helps to visualize logic diagrams and see how different elements relate to each other. This will take a bit more getting used to. In general, try to solidify your SC skills so you can free up more time in RC and CR.

Hope that helps.

... and more
