What should I study? [#permalink] New post 27 Jul 2011, 12:54
Hi I need some advice in what should I study in order to improve my GMAT score:
English is my second language.
Toefl ibt = 85
I need a 500 with 50 percentile in both Verbal and Quant.

5 months of study:
Gmat prep(first attempt) 200
Actual GMAT 17 31 410
800score 34 29 530
800score 28 32 510
Actual GMAT 18 36 460
800score 18 30 400
ManhattanGMAT 27 36 530
GMAT prep 18 30 400
Actual GMAT 17 33 430


My weaknesses are vocabulary, grammar and Speed. Sometimes I think I got the CR and RC problems right but it's an entirely different story. I have been studying grammar and RC strategies to improve the Verbal part but it has not move at all. I already took a course twice(Veritas Prep). I called Veritas and their answer is pay for tutoring or do the quizzes to see your weaknesses. I'm just don't making any progress. Now that I did not enter to the course that starts on August 8 2011, I have more time to study.

I need a reinvention on my study schedule and strategies . What do you guys recommend?

We have many students similar to yourself who are weak in verbal. You may need a variety of resources to address your issues.
Make it a habit to mark down all the questions you get wrong. Then GO BACK and attempt them again in a few hours or the next day.

Ask yourself: Why did I choose the wrong answer? What could I have done differently to think on the right path? Were the GMAT guys trying to trick me and I fell for their trap? How could I have reduced the time I spent on this question?

These are all the things we teach. We do recommend sticking with OG questions and redoing all wrong questions until you can get them all correct in one shot. There's more than plenty practice questions in the OG to train your mind for efficient GMAT thinking.

Good luck on your studies. And we are here to help.
