Hello everyone,

I'm trying to prep up my verbals mostly based on the PowerPrep CR and Manhattan SC. I also have the OG13, Verbal 2, and a number of all-in-one tombs at my disposal. I'm looking for advice on what is the order should I go through these sources? Would the best way to prep be going through the questions from all-in-ones to get familiar with the topics first, then "read-in" with official guides?

Hi

Please start with OG, do analyze each answer explanation in detail.

Then move to MGMAT SC and finally Verbal2. You will be ready for the finale

Meanwhile you may also attempt additional verbal questions on MGMAT website/tests.

All teh best

It looks like you're looking for resources for verbal studying. The sources you mentioned sound fine - it looks like you have a source for SC and CR. If you haven't found a resource for RC yet, you can consider taking a look into the gmatpill RC pill - a few free videos you can check out.

With RC - you want to do a cursory read of the passage - focusing on understanding where the author is coming from, what direction he/she takes, and then connecting the dots in the passage. Then you approach the questions and determine whether it's something you can answer by connecting the dots OR something in more detail that requires you to refer back to the passage. Good luck.

Hi zmender,

Whatever resources you use, remember that studying is a cycle:

Build your foundation ---> Assess your progress ---> Attack your weaknesses ---> REPEAT!!!

  • 1. Build your foundation by learning methods (SC splits, CR finding the conclusion, RC note-taking, etc.) and theory (SC parallelism, CR assumption types, RC wrong answer traps). MGMAT SC and GmatPill RC Pill are examples of good resources for this.
  • 2. Assess your progress by taking a practice test - the OG13 diagnostic, online practice CATs, or even picking random problems from the OG Verbal Supplement are good ways to do this.
  • 3. Attack your weaknesses. Look at the problems you missed in step 2 and figure out what you are good and bad at. Find practice problems from OG13 that test those topics, and study them intensely. If you still have trouble, go back to step 1 and learn more theory about that particular topic.

Hope this helps!
