Hi guys - I would like to ask some advice on how to improve my current GMAT expected score. I have been preparing since August and I recently (in the last 2 weeks) took 4 different official GMAT CAT, receiving seemingly inconsistent results: 670, 710, 700, 660 (incredibly my last one yesterday). My quant score has been steadily around 47-48 whereas my Verbal score changed a lot (from 35 to 42).

I do not know how to proceed at the moment since I went through the MGMAT guides, all the official Guides problems and I am still experiencing different issues on the Verbal Side (particularly the sentence correction with an average of 6-7 errors per test) and lack of accuracy on the Quant section (I really feel to have mastered the theoretical concepts and I can apply them but I am continuously making accuracy errors).

I would like to improve my Quant from 47-48 to at least 49-50 and stay with my verbal consistently above 40.

Can you suggest me some valuable online prep course to hit my improvement targets? I have one month left. My current idea would be to:

- Use eGmat for the Verbal
- Revolutionary Math for the Quant

I would welcome any valuable advice.

Thanks a LOT!

Using egmat is a good idea. Practice the scholaranium questions twice. It can help you to boost your verbal score till 40. Also, buy the GmatPrep Question Packs. THey contain 494 official questions, which is a good source of practice for both quant and verbal.
For Quant you might consider revising the concepts. You can use Magoosh for that or even Revolutionary Math. Another good source is GMatClub posts and books. Make sure that you do not take up any 700 plus level problems.
Attempt all questions under strict timed conditions. Make sure that you appear for other mocks too and even consider giving the gmatprep mocks twice or thrice.

While e-gmat is a good resource, I am not very sure if you can make the most of it in a month. I would suggest identify which among SC, CR and RC is your weakest and go for that module only. If you finish that in good time you can go for your next weakest section.

Math you are very close to your target. Some practice and conceptual clearance will help. Haven't use revolutionary math so can't really comment on that.

I can't recommend GMAT Club tests enough, specifically for quant. I think if you put some time in there, and consciously track and fix your problem areas, the sky is the limit!
