First GMAT debrief - 700 (48Q/37V) (4IR, 6AWA)  [#permalink]

Hi all,

I am a graduating senior in undergrad and just took my first GMAT exam after about 2-3 months of on and off self-studying. I used just the GMAT OG Guide and some explanations on GMATClub. I really did not have much structure when I studied and am looking for a more methodical approach the 2nd time around. I took a diagnostic from Veritas a few weeks before my exam and scored a 660 so I was pleasantly surprised with my score.

I am aiming for around a 740 and will be applying to primarily to M7 schools in a few years.

Few questions:
What are some recommendations for prep courses for a retaker that really wants to hit that 740 range? I've read a lot of reviews but I'm not sure which ones are best for retakers/those aiming for scores on the higher end.

Should I focus more on raising my verbal up or should I try to raise both scores? My sentence correction is definitely weak and could use some work.

Any tips for IR? I'm trying to get it to at least a 6.

I'm planning on taking a few months off and then starting studying again in August. Is this advised? Should I try to do a little studying each week to maintain what I have learned so far?

Any other general tips and advice would be appreciated!

Thank you!

Hi jzheng3,

Welcome to GMATCLUB. Congratulations on a great score. I think you should focus on improving your Verbal. To improve your scores in verbal, you can consider e-gmat verbal online or the e-gmat verbal live course. They are both amazing courses especially designed for non-natives. They offer almost 25% of their courses for free so you can try out their free trial to decide which one you want to go for. Plus the e-gmat Scholaranium which is included in both the courses is one of the best verbal practice tools in the market. You can easily track your progress in that you can identify your strengths and analyze and improve on your weak areas.

Further taking multiple mocks might help. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

Further another advantage of taking many mocks is to build up your stamina. Apart from the GMATPREP tests, taking practice tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

I would also encourage you to purchase the GMATPREP QP 1 for some great additional practice. Here is a link that will help you with your decision.

Hope this helps. All the best.
