Are you doing the Toefl? Sorry I'm not sure how it works for the GMAT but I know for the SAT they had it for the non-native speakers. I can't imagine the GMAT wouldn't have something similar. As I am a native speaker, I haven't really looked into it. Just wondering if you have?

I don't see how it would be fair for a non-native speaker to be competing with native speakers.

Your math looks pretty good but the verbal is killing you (thank you Mr. Obvious). But what parts of the verbal are you having issues with?

Samarg, how much time do you have to your GMAT? Which MGMAT books have you gone over?

Samarg,

i had the same problem as you... my first gmat attempt was horrible 470 Q31 V20's (No studying it was stupid of me waste of $250)..second 640.. third 690 just matters what books you study with

to jump from 470 to 640 i increased my math/verbal using all mgmat books
the mgmat books got my math up to 42-47 on prac tests
verbal to high 20's

to make that jump to a 690 i highhhhlyyy recommend powerscore books
CR LSAT BIBLE (After reading this book 2x i rarely missed a CR problem)
SC Bible (Every rule you could possibly think of)
*For reading comprehension readdd the wall street journal and analyze it for better comprehension skills ask yourself what is the authors tone, what is the main point, etc..*

these two books plus WSJ brought up my verbal from 27-29 to 41!!!!

I just think ur math is great, 43 is not bad brush it up do those harder problems shoot for 45+... In verbal get those two books from powerscore and ull do just fine if you master them I dont see how you cant score in the 30s or higher...
