Hi,
I took the gmat today and scored a 590(Q49,V23). Bad score.. yes it is!!!
I prepared for 4 hrs a day for the last one and a half month, excluding the weekends.I ran out of time towards the end in verbal and guessed almost 5-6 of them. Math was very easy, was left with 7 mins at the end, and thought i would have done better had i spent more time in those intermediate questions. Although i had no idea about almost 3 of them.
Any suggestions on improving the verbal would be a great help. I am planning to go for a die hard preparation for the next two months and give it a shot again when i am ready. not setting the deadline for the exam this time
I have take gmat prep 1 and 2 , scored 630 and 680 on them. took 800score exams got 630,640,680, 700, 730 on those, still such low one on the actual one
Any pointers for reaching the 700 marks are welcome, thanks all this forum has been a great help!!!

You could start by reading some business publications and paying attention to the grammar.

If I was as good in Math as you, I'd probably end up with a 700

I can dedicate 2 hours at most to my studies, but I've been doing so consistently for the last 6 months and still can't get above Q41.

you have to improve one section and consolidate the q section..that's a good start.
So you can focus and spent your time studing on v...i would say try some lsat exercises...you will love it
