Hello everyone,

I am at home and not working as of now. So, i have time.
I am considering to appear for the test in end of September, 17.

I would need your sincere advice on the following.
I am right now depending my preparation on Official Guide and other free materials available the internet like E-GMAT etc.
I am on budget.
My strength is Quant and Verbal is just below average to be true.

Should I join a verbal course?
What would you recommend the best

Angshuman Manhattan Sc is the best source for Sentence correction
Power score Cr bible is best for CR, even you can practice LSAT questions, veritas and Manhattan to practice some 650-700+ level questions.
You will find below 650 level questions in OG and verbal guide but all of those are important. Practice questions and find out that why wrong choices are wrong.
E-gmat is good and specially designed for non-native english speakers.

Hey buddy. I too was in a similar scenario. Had strong quants and average verbal with very low budget. I invested in E-gmat and official mocks.
I think the decision was perfect. E-gmat helped get improve my verbal by quite a bit. The SC and CR are particularly good.
The official mocks were the best way to gauge my position and my final GMAT was within 20 points of what I was scoring in those mocks.

Hey friend, Hope you are fully engrossed with your preparation for GMAT. What I suggest to many users in GMAT CLUB is to improve your quant score you need 1 month and to improve your verbal score you need 2 months.
You seem to be good in quant probably in between 50 and 51 score. So, solve atleast 10 questions daily (Both 600 and 700 level). 600 level to avoid silly mistakes and 700 level to maintain your competency level. This can be done on gmatclub itself. You will ultimately end up with a score of 51..

So, basically you now need to improve verbal and try to maximize your overall GMAT score.
1. Read MGMT guides carefully 2 chapters a day from verbal guides.
2. Start solving questions on gmatclub of different levels.
3. Solve OG guide with time tracker.
4. Solve more questions.
5. Optional : You can also solve egmat (you can get egmat tests by scoring points on gmatclub) to improve further.
You will get a score in 40's..

You will ultimately end up with a score above 750.. All the best.
