I've taken the GMAT twice, each time studied about a month before the test. My Q is always at 49, and at this point I've no time to pull it up to a 51. With the time constraint, I think I should focus on pulling up my V from 35-36 to a 40.

How can I do that though? Finished all the OG questions, finished Prep 02 pack, went through Ron's SC notes. From all the mock exams, I sometimes get 91% RC and score low on SC, sometimes I get 90% on CR and score low on RC. So there's always one section that bombs my score.

Advice needed! Any input is welcomed at this point.

Did you study that why you got unbalanced results? Lack of time? Or get tired? Or other reasons?

At this point it makes sense to fix all your mistakes.
Analyze all the Prep tests that you have written and try to analyze
what are the topics you are making mistakes in(especially CR/SC)?

Work on the weak areas and then do some specific practice in those
areas. After doing that, take more tests and see if you are able to get
rid of your problem areas.

Hope that helps you!

Hi tifamo,

Given how close you are to the GMAT I wouldn't recommend you trying out anything new at this point. If you are particularly looking to discover and improve on your weak areas in Verbal and looking for additional practice; a subscription e-gmat scholaranium is the best way to do that. It is without a doubt, one of the best practice tools for verbal and will indeed help you on the final leg of your preparations. Further taking multiple mocks might help. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

Hope this helps. All the best.
