Hello, I just took my GMAC test and I recieved a 690 (49 q, 35 v). I am thrilled with the quant, but need to bump up verbal to get into the 700 club. In verbal, I recieved a 44 in sentence correction, while I received 31 in critical reasoning and 34 in reading comprehension. I have a tutor I am going to meet with. I have one week until my test next Saturday. Do you guys have any advice on how to bump these areas up so I can finally be done with this horrendous test?

Thanks for any ideas!

Hi Chrisb2345 ,

All the best for your exam. :)

Since only one week is left, I would prefer you to relax and don't study too much.

To score more in verbal, you can take one mock test asap and try to be as focused in each question as you can.

The only thing you can do at the moment is be careful.

Read my debrief(in my signature) and see how being more careful helped me achieve V40. :)

Given the timeframe, I think the most helpful advice would be - while attempting CR questions, try to ignore what you already know about the topic in question stem (no outside knowledge, no common sense - the questions says -if true' means if the answer choice mentions something take it as it is). I used to make such mistakes, and ever since I made this minor change in my approach, my CR has improved a lot.

RC's are a bit difficult but then this is the only section where you have all the information in front of you, if you don't remember anything - you can always go back to it. I make sure that first I read the entire passage end to end, and then attempt the following questions. I don't try to retain all the info but I try to keep a mental map of what's where (e.g., If there comes a passage on American history - Para 1 - historically what was believed. Para 2 - Some scholar's theory. Para 3 - author's stand. Para 4 - any exceptions.)

I found this https://gmatclub.com/forum/slingfox-s-gmat-strategies-condensed-96483.html quite helpful. See if you do too.

All the best :-)
