I am about 2 1/2 weeks away from sitting for the GMAT. I am scoring in the 620 to 640 range. My goal is 650. I am scoring around 39 on math and about 38 on verbal. At this point, I think an easy way to improve my score would be to spend a little more time working on improving my verbal score. English is my primary language, so this should be an area I can improve fairly easily. So far, I have the following learning resources:Kaplan
GMAT Premier 2011
The Official Guide 12th
EditionKaplan GMAT Math WorkbookKaplan GMAT 800
The 2 ETS Practice tests.MGMAT Number Properties
.MGMAT Word Translations
.MGMAT Math Foundations
My questions are as follows:
1.) What should I study for verbal so that I can quickly learn the "key tips" for improving my verbal score? Should I use one of my current resources or is there another one I should buy?
2.) Also, I really haven't spent any time on the essays. I am not too concerned with the essays, but I would like to get an average score on them. Is there a good resource available that will help me get an "average" score on the essays?
