Hi fellow GMAT'ters',

reflecting on my test on Sunday (scored 660 with insufficient time to prepare) and reading all those dedicated posts I decided to retake in may and aim at joining the 700 Club.

First thing to tackle is verbal.

Adding to the Kaplan Premier that I read for the last test I am going to take more online tests. I preordered the McGraw-Hills Conquering GMAT Verbal and Writing (1st February).

All the best
Ben

You've got a great starting point, you need ~1 point in math and ~5 points in verbal to be 80 percentile in each section and over 700.

Few points:

Your weakest subsection (SC, RC, CR) is what keeps you from breaking certain score barriers. Work from your weakest verbal section up
Keep an error log to identify any underlying issues and figure out WHY you answering problems incorrectly.
Buy materials that address you specific needs (since you're at that point). Going through the mostly general material will not have the return it has for people who are scoring at a lower level.

Best of luck,

SC and RC are my weaker sports in the verbal.

It is also great to hear what that means in points.

Is there a calculator that gives you an impression of the total score?

Right now I always look for other members

e.g. what would Q49 (+2 from the current point) V39 (+6 from current point) mean?

Moving up in Q is an option as well. Only weak spot is geometry, so with some more basics there and advanced strategy for logic I should be good to go.

Read thorugh the 650+ and move to 700+ thread yesterday and certainly will go for the error log.

Ok, will give MGMAT (Equations, Inequalities, and VIC's) to improve in math a try and also ordered Sentence Correction to move up in Verbal.

Thanks!
