WHEN YOU HIT A WALL? [#permalink]
18 Jan 2007, 13:09
I've taken the gmat prep cat, princeton review, kaplan, arco cats. I've studied a ton, but I seem to hit a wall. My math scores range from 45-50 and Verbal 25-30. So basically 580-620 on everything. I use the Manhattan verbal formulas for the Verbal part. I'm not sure how I can get better. The questions I get wrong in verbal are nothing I can really study and prepare for. Its just a lack of being smart in reading. Anything I can do?
golfpro20050, I'm afraid I can give you only some general tips, but no specific solution
1) Plz refer to the stickys on each of the forums, for useful tips on how to improve on each of the question types. I would suggest to go through some of the posts of guys who have done well in their second attempt after a not so good first attempt.
2) Practice. Practice as much as you can. Make sure you analyze all your mistakes closely. Keep a log of all your errors and review them frequently. Make sure you are able to eliminate choices before picking the correct one. The real GMAT has the choices structured in such a way that you would definitely be able to eliminate choices based on some rule.
3) Make sure you have all the good standard material to refer and practice from.
