thanks for a wonderful test. I am looking for a great boost in verbal score which is my weakness.will try the above written tips. Already focused on concepts for the moment.

I did not get this part of the original post "Do verbal sets 21-30 in 75 minutes" , where one can buy/ find these verbal sets ?

These are very useful tips. Thanks!

I'm a newbie and would like to test the gap. would you recommend me to revise a lot before doing any CATs, or take a CAT first and figure out my weak spot before revising? If the latter, what would be a good trial CAT? I don't want to waste any really good CAT.

Thanks again

Hi,
I have started my GMAT preperation recently. answered a free GMAT prep test and scored 680 ( QA 50 & VA 31).
I got 14 incorrect questions in verbal. Can you tell how many incorrect questions you used to get in mocks. I know incorrect questions are not a true indicator of score but it does help to some extent.

It's rather easy to practice sets of SC's, but CR's & especially RC's are pain in the a22. They just take too much time and literally drain you.

I'm going to look through the MGMAT SC Guide again tomorrow to refresh and use your tips for RC and hopefully catch a break!

Was GMAT Verbal Review book useful or not really? Some member suggested to use it before OG12. The problem I have, is that I already went through OG12, so could GMAT Verbal Review still help at my stage knowing I have 25 days before the test?

For sentence correction and reading comprehension verbal review is good, but I don't like it for Critical reasoning, very easy.
