Hi everyone,

Jut finished with my GMAT and got 720 total with q50 v37 split.
Despite that 720 is not bad at all I will retake the exam in 1 month targeting 760.
The reason is that my Verbal score is very imbalanced as I got 51 in both RC and CR but miserable 27 in SC.
I just feel that I can improve in SC in 1 month while keeping everything else on the same level.

So asking for your advice here on how to achieve that goal.
I already went through Manhattan SC book and e-gmat SC online course during my first attempt.
My plan is to revisit these two and to solve as many questions from different OGs as possible.

So the question is, will that be enough ? Or I need to completely somehow change my approach for SC ?

Any help is really appreciated.

ps. I am non-native English speaker.

Our approach toward SC is different and perhaps what will help you see a big improvement. Check it out here:

Both Manhattan SC book and e-gmat SC online course are some of the best resources available in the market, and Manhattan SC book is considered the bible of SC. So to improve your SC score, you need to figure out your weak areas and what are the mistakes you are making, then concentrate to improve on those areas. Additionally you can buy GMATPREP QP1 and also refer to the SC videos of "Thursday with Ron". SC is more like math and it is easier to improve SC quickly. So best of luck for your next exam!
