verbal vs quant time allocation [#permalink] New post 26 Nov 2009, 20:48
From practice with various GMAT materials, and simulated test taking, I am seeing:
- scores in high 40's for Q (45-49 GMAT Prep and MGMAT CAT). Lot of 700+ level questions and most answered correctly.
- score in the v is in low to high 30's. (many 500-700 questions and not so many 700+ answered correctly)

I see that in Q I am unable to get beyond 50. (still working through the math gmat club tests).
In V, my strength is RC>>CR>>SC.
I have a few options till my exam at year-end. I can keep boosting Q to raise it to 50 or higher or get up to speed in SC and may be raise V to low 40's (I will be much content with that). With the time constraints, both seem difficult.

What would be better way? leave V as is and boost Q? or Focus V?

Hello tusharvk,

If you are scoring 47+ on quant, I would focus your time on verbal. The few points you might gain in quant at 47+ will not be significant to your overall score.

Going from a mid 30 to a high 30/low 40 will have a much larger impact on your score.

As long as your quant is consistently in a small range (+/- 2 points), I would focus on verbal.
