Hi Guys, This is my first post in the gmatclub forum.
i have started preparing for GMAT 3 weeks back , focussing mainly on verbal, and some advice would do a hell lot of good in my preparations.
For SC i am referring to ARISTOTLE SC GRAIL (almost done with it) and MGMAT SC guide.
For CR i have started with Powerscore CR Bible and for RC MGMAT SC guide (almost done).
Given some free mocks and my accuracy stands at 50% at best now. i am getting the harder one's wrong most of the time.
Currently i am dedicating 2-3 hours daily and i hope i could continue with the same.

Since my accuracy is a concern at the moment , i would like to get some advice on how to improve on the verbal section and what all i need to do to equip myself to get a score of around 710-720.

TIA

Official material is always better than non-official when it comes to score estimation. Take a GMATPrep if you can, and focus on the scaled scores you receive at the end. Considering only accuracy may or may not be useful for an adaptive exam like the GMAT.

I'm not saying that you stop using any other material you have decided is good. But don't benchmark yourself on the basis of your performance there.

Hi abd15,

Have you taken any FULL-LENGTH CATs yet (with the Essay and IR sections)? If you have, then how did you score (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores)? If you have not, you really have to take on before we can assess your current skills and what you should focus on going forward. You can download 2 for free from www.mba.com (and they come with some additional practice materials). That score will give us a good sense of your natural strengths and weaknesses and will help provide a basis for comparison as you continue to study. A FULL CAT takes about 4 hours to complete, so make sure that you've set aside enough time to take it in one sitting. Once you have those scores, you should report back here and we can discuss the results.
