Hello Everyone,

I have 15 days left for the GMAT.
I am looking for more info on how I can improve my score.
I scored 620 on last GMATprep. Q47 V28.

I am looking to improve my score by 3-4 points.

It would be very helpful if you could let me know the effective strategies.
I have solved 20+ gmatclub test on quant and thinking of going through them too for errors.
Though it would take quite a lot time, is it worth evaluating them at this stage?

I have not analyzed the error log as of now. Planning to do so this week.
Gone through BB's post on 30-14-7-1 days left for gmat.

When nothing seem to help, I would go and look at a Stonecutter hammering away at his rock perhaps a hundred time without as much as a crack showing in it.
Yet at the hundred and first blow it would split in two.
And I knew it was not that blow that did it, But all that had gone Before

3-4 points in what. For your case, its easy to see a 3-4 points, may be 5-6 points, increment in verbal that in quant.

No, considering that your quant score is 47. Go over OG - and make sure that you can solve all medium and easy level problems with 100% accuracy. Any time of the day - if I give you 10 easy and medium level quant problem, you should be able to solve it with 100% accuracy. The key to get good score is not doing super difficult things - but doing easy and medium level questions with 100% accuracy in 2 mins. You will be on your way to 49-50.. may not be 51.

I have the same advice for you in Verbal - but with 27/28, its better you train your mind in the next few days for perfect accuracy in "easy" level questions, with some handsome accuracy in "medium" level questions.

Don't even bother to touch super difficult questions - considering the time frame you have.

Hi Prashant10692,

Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on EACH of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
4) What is your EXACT goal score?
5) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
6) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
