7 Weeks From Test Day. Any Advice?  [#permalink]

New post 29 Jun 2019, 19:07
Hi all,

I have 7 weeks until my test and I am looking for some advice/easing of the mind if getting a 680+ is feasible. I just invested in a tutor that will hopefully help a bit.

I took one test to get a base score after going thru the MGMAT books and got a 590 two weeks back.

I just recently took my second MGMAT test today and got a 610 Q-42, V-32. Quant is not my concern, timing played a role and my mistakes were due to feeling rushed. This will improve will more time/exposure/practice.

Verbal is my crutch. I have been really focusing on SC because it is something I knew I would be weaker at. I am definitely improving and feel much more comfortable than when I began 4 or so weeks ago.

RC I also struggled with on this test (6/12 right). I have not practiced much here, but I plan to hone in here.

CR is no problem I got maybe 3 wrong from both tests combined.

Any advice/resources on SC/RC. I am looking to get a 39/40 on V. If I can achieve that I know I can reach my target score!

Any advice is greatly appreciated and thank you!

Hi mtm2353,

Welcome to GMATCLUB! To improve your scores in verbal specifically in SC, you can consider e-gmat verbal online or the e-gmat verbal live course. They are both amazing courses especially designed for non-natives. They offer almost 25% of their courses for free so you can try out their free trial to decide which one you want to go for. Plus the e-gmat Scholaranium which is included in both the courses is one of the best verbal practice tools in the market. You can easily track your progress in that you can identify your strengths and analyze and improve on your weak areas.

Further taking multiple mocks might help. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

I would also encourage you to purchase the GMATPREP QP 1 for some great additional practice. Further you should also consider LSAT Questions for some great RC practice.

Hope this helps. All the best.

Hello mtm2353,

We appreciate your confidence and wish you the best of luck for test preparation. It is good that you know about improving areas. A score of 590 is decent, but not sufficient enough to get into a top university. All top ranking universities will require a score of at least 700 or above.

We appreciate your score in Quant as 42. Now you need some quick and alternative approaches to solve math questions that will save you time.We will appreciate if you check our Q 51 shortcut module to learn the best method to deal with DS/PS problems.

Also, visit our website, https://www.mathrevolution.com. Check our free trial lessons and free videos.

The verbal section needs more attention in your case. To achieve the desired score of 700 or above various possible combinations are V37/Q50, V39/Q49, V43/Q45.

For Sentence Correction, you should check Aristotle Grail, as it caters to the best grammar basics. Also, try solving 700+ level questions to build up the confidence to deal with RC and CR.

Also, make sure you give as much as a mock test as it will help to track your performance. You may try one free diagnostic test on our website.

You can connect with our experts if you have doubts about math. Check this forum for reliable resources and updated questions for verbal that meet with GMAT trends.

Gradually, with the help of mock tests, you will be able to compete with time and hence will be able to learn time-management. So you should keep a proper track of your mock test scores.

Let us know if you have further questions.

You can reach us at info@mathrevolution.com

Success is within your reach.

Good luck!
