Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Of the GMAT verbal sections, SC is the easiest to improve and RC is probably the section that will take the longest time to improve. These RC videos may help.
Some people recommend reading the NY Times. While that may be beneficial in the long run, it's unlikely that reading NYTimes will actually help boost your score in a few weeks. Focus on keywords in the passage so you know when you should really pay attention and when you can "skim" parts of a paragraph. This is almost an art rather than a science and takes time to develop. _________________
my exam scheduled on july 15. as a non native english speaker faces problem with verbal so by which strategy i can score at least 600, verbal 30 at least quant i belive to do 45+ plz offer some suggestions
i am using OG 10-12 AND 2ND edition guide books mean powerscore cr and mgmat series 4th edition interesting point is that always i stuck between 2 options say for A and B, if i choose A then answer is B and vice-versa
You have the right books for verbal, so put in as much effort as possible for those two books - especially Manhattan SC. In fact, I advise you to read Manhattan SC at least twice.
It's also important to fully review every OG verbal question - even the ones that you answer correctly. This reinforces the material, helps you to get into the GMAT's logic, and builds confidence. Also keep an error log, which is crucial for improved performance.
But I'm still not satisfied with my response. What else can you tell us about your studies? What do you find difficult? Are the Powerscore CR Bible and Manhattan SC guidebooks easy to understand, or do you struggle at times? _________________
It seems that haven't fully absorbed the material just yet. But that's okay; you still have time. Another plus is that you have so many OG questions. And don't forget that GMATClub's Verbal forums have lots of practice questions too. Other than rereading and fully reviewing OG questions, I usually recommend members to take an active role in the SC and CR forums and answer questions.
For now, though, focus on the concepts covered in the guidebooks. Try to supplement that with some GMAT Fiction in early stages of your preparation. _________________
