V47 is just insane. Even your baseline verbal of V35 already set you in a good path. Can you share a bit more about your background in English before you started preparation?

thank you very much. As for my verbal background - I would say I read a lot, for work, but also outside of it. I work in policy and I would say my CR skills come from my debating background in undergrad and grad school. Honestly, even though I had a decent verbal background to start with, I read A LOT through the course of my preparation to prepare for RC and CR. We are talking 4-5 articles on the economist a day. Especially for the sciences. I definitely needed help on SC. The GMAT SC is very different from how I was used to constructing sentences.
