Hi,
I'm planning to retake the GMAT in around 15-20 days and aiming for a 20-30pt jump.
My standpoint is 700 Q49 V35 IR7, my path of Real GMAT Official Scores has been:
620 Q48 V27 IR 4 End of February
670 Q47 V35 IR 4.5 April
700 Q49 V35 IR 7 May
Now, I exhausted almost all CATs materials. Finished Manhattan, Veritas and Gmatclub Quant and Verbal + OGs, +Egmat and Magoosh courses.
I'm ok with Quant but I want to push verbal beyond V40, and I'm pretty confident I have the capabilities to make this happen (since I don't think my last V35 was representative).
Could you suggest me some Verbal materials that can be fairly Verbal boosters at this point? :roll: (especially CATs) and maybe something to keep quant on point. (I still have many questions left on Egmat CR and RC but I found CR to be too much straight forward (I was scoring 97percentile in CR). Right now I'm using manhattan advanced workout sets for Quant and random questions from Gmatclub question bank for verbal.
I'm considering hiring a tutor for this final rush but I'm afraid that he could take more of half the time I left just to understand my weak spots. What do you think?

Thanks so much :) :)
If interested I can upload the last two ESR, I can't find the first.

The last 100 points just require fine tuning. You must already have all the skills to score in mid 700s if you already have a 700. Also, I applaud your determination. Taking GMAT three time in 5 months is not easy. Congratulations on achieving a 700, finally. I would highly recommend that you upload the ESR reports from the previous attempts.

Hi federico199999

First off, a 700/Q49 is an outstanding score, so you can comfortably apply to any Business Schools that interest you. As such, a retest might not be necessary. Depending on the Schools that you plan to apply to, you would likely find it beneficial to speak with an Admissions Expert about your overall profile. There's a Forum full of those Experts here:

https://gmatclub.com/forum/ask-admissio ... tants-124/

There's no harm in retesting, but before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

1) How have you scored on EACH of your CATs/mocks (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?
2) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
3) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

While the Enhanced Score Report doesn’t provide a lot of information, there are usually a few data points that we can use to define what went wrong on Test Day (and what you should work on to score higher). Since you have purchased those ESRs, I'll be happy to analyze them for you. You will need at least 5 posts in the forums before you can add attachments to posts or PMs, so you can feel free to email them directly to me.
