Hello gmatclub memebers,

I took the gmat test this morning and got shocked with my scores 510 (Quant: 48, Verbal : 17). I did do practice test at home and normally I got Quant:48-49 and verbal is around 29-31. Therefore, I want to take the test to apply for R2 based on my trial test results at home. But it is shocking to me with that result. I felt so stressful when thinking of the verbal section. I do not know why I have no ideas when approaching verbal questions this morning and totally forgot all the strategy.

I need your help on how to control the verbal section well during the test. I felt so discouraging after the test and still can not find out the reason I did bad on verbal section this morning.

Thanks in advance and look forward to hearing from you soon.

Dear yenpham9,
I'm sorry to hear about this experience, and I am happy to respond.

I'll share some resources. Here's a free idiom ebook you may find helpful.
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2013/gmat-idiom-ebook/
Here's a blog with strategies for the GMAT CR:
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/save-time- ... questions/
The links in that article direct you to other articles with strategies for individual question types. This SC article similarly is loaded with links:
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2013/gmat-grammar/
Here are a few articles on RC:

http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/gmat-rc-el ... g-answers/
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/inference- ... rehension/

I guess I don't know what your timeline is going forward, but I'll make a few more recommendations. This is a three-month study plan designed precisely for someone in your position:
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/3-month-gm ... l-focused/
I don't know whether you are in a position to postpone, take the GMAT later, and apply next year. If so, you could follow that three-month plan. If you do choose to give yourself more time, I have a hugely important one-word piece of strategy that can transform your GMAT Verbal skills: READ. REad hard challenging material in English. Read every day, at least an hour a day. Since you want to get an MBA, it would be an excellent idea to read the Wall Street Journal every day and the Economist magazine every week. Here are some more recommendation on what to read:
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/gmat-reading-list/

Whether you have a lot of time or want a quick turn-around for your retake, I think Magoosh can really help you. Here is a SC video lesson:
http://gmat.magoosh.com/lessons/944-substantive-clauses
Here's a SC question
http://gmat.magoosh.com/questions/3266
Here's a CR question:
http://gmat.magoosh.com/questions/3150
When you submit your answer to those questions, the next page will have a video explanation. Each one of Magoosh's 700+ practice questions has its own video explanation, for accelerated learning.

Even if you decide not to purchase Magoosh, I hope you get everything you can from these resources and from the free blog --- there's a lot there that can help you. Best of luck, my friend!

Mike
