Hello everyone,

On the 13th I will be doing the GMAT for the first time and my target is 600 minimum with 630+ being the best.

However, I just did my second GMAT prep exam and I scored a 560 ( 44Q 23V ) while a few months ago before I even started studying I did another GMAT prep exam and scored a 530 ( 37Q 26V ).

Unfortunately I only started "seriously" studying for the exam 3 weeks before, which was not a wise decision at all.

I'm specially bad at Sentence Correction, from my last prep exam I got 54% of all SC wrong, 22% of all CR and 21% of the all RC questions wrong.

Therefore I assume it's a better "return on investment" to just focus on verbal to try and go from a 23V to a 32+, I'm notoriously bad at remembering stuff, grammar , both in English and in my native language, was never my strong suit, I have been reading some grammar guides, incluiding Gmatclub's, however it just "doesn't stick".

Any thoughts?

Thank you

EDIT: "Review" of the questions I got wrong
QUANT: (44)
.............Wrong %Wrong
Integer 3/6 50.00%
Statistics+Prob 3/9 33.33%
Geometry 1/4 25.00%
Equations 2/4 50.00%
Inequality 2/2 100.00%
Other 2/6 33.33%

PS 9/19 47.37%
DS 4/12 33.33%

VERBAL: (23)
.......Wrong % Wrong
SC 7/13 53.85%
CR 2/9 22.22%
RC 3/14 21.43%

Hello

Unfortunately I have to send my application for the Masters I want to get into by the 26th of February and I will be away the rest of January, therefore rescheduling seems impossible

Hi AndreC,

Since your GMAT is in just 5 days, improving from V23 to V32+ likely will be difficult. Is there any way you could keep studying and take your GMAT at a later date? In any case, would you like some general advice on how to improve your quant and verbal skills?

Hello Scott,

Unfortunately the latest I can do my GMAT is on the 5th of February but I will be away from the 17th to the 25th of January and once I come back I will have very few hours to study since I will need to catch up with work.
But, I would be more than happy to take your advice. For these past few days I have been mostly studying idioms, some grammar and just grinding away some SC questions. Any advice would be welcome, thank you!

Thank you,
André

Hello Scott,

Somehow I ended up getting a 35 on Verbal and a 42 on Quant resulting in a 640, however, I will still be trying again on the 5th of February to see if I can raise this 640 a little bit.

Thank you,
André
