Quant: 50
Verbal:27
Overall: 630

I had never done so bad in Verbal. My GMAT prep scores were 720, 680. I think i messed up CR and SC.

I will retake it on 17th of coming month. I have already solved Kaplan, OG and Princeton CATs. Any pointers how I sho

Beyond just more "book" work and studying. Read... A LOT! Read the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, McKinsey Quarterly. Read to understand, and pull apart the arguments presented.

That will help "ingrain" the knowledge.

Dont worry Buddy,

I took my GMAT recently and got a shock too.I ended up with a 640.

I had also been scoring in the 680-720 range in the practise tests.

Take a couple of days off.Let things fall into perspective and then start again.

I cleared my head off for a couple of days.Just gives you a better perspective on where you went wrong.I second Kz regarding reading Wall street Journal and stuff.

Also, do small but timed sectional exercises for verbal.1000 SC is a good source.......
