I feel helpless here. The verbal section is kicking my butt. Any suggestions?

Which sections are giving you the most trouble? Are you having equal difficulty betwen RC, CR, and SC? Is your timing during the RC passages causing you to rush though the CR and SC?

If you can accurately diagnose your weakpoints, it will be significantly easier to improve your score :)

Thanks for getting back.

You mentioned that it's critical to diagnose where my weaknesses in verbal are. What I can say is that I actually tutored someone in verbal who scored a 35 on her first attempt. I believed that my strategies worked, and that I had sufficeintly gained improvement in all three areas. In otherwords, I am having trouble rediagnosing where I'm now week because of getting most of the questions correct in all 3 areas by now. It was like -3 here and minus -3 there.

On the exam questions 1-10 were no trouble. Then questions 10-20 I began with a tough RC question and it was all down hill from there. I understand the concept of "imperfect options", but the answers just weren't there on the test??? I started to feel like I was guessing.

When I take any of the practice stuff (E.g. PT, Challenges 1-6, OG 11th, Etc. . .) I always narrow it down to 2, then one answer is uselly a little more offensive, doesn't address the claim, scope issue. . .) On the real test, the answers just weren't there. . .Again it was like I was guessing.

So 22 man, yep! It's laughable.
