gurpreetsingh how are you doing?
I am writing because I took the test and although I didn't score high in my verbal, I definitely improve it.
I passed from a raw score of 25 to 35.
You can read more here: from-610-to-680-improve-in-verbal-knewton-94237.html
Verbal can be worked it out!!
I definitely think that you are going to rock the gmat!
Just keep pushing!


I m currently doing Norman lewis' How to read better and faster with a hope to improve my reading. I will revise MGMAT SC along with the OG questions as suggested by MGMAT.
You have improved significantly and I must congratulate you for the achievement and thank you for the wishes.

IMO revise MGMAT SC again with OG12 questions given at the end. I also did the mistake of not doing that. We must apply theory to practical examples.

We can study together for the MGMAT SC and OG12 for SC if you want.As I m going to start it next week.

Yes, I have a strong reason for that. I want to give powerprep before starting OG's. As there is considerable overlap among them. I will give both the tests in this week and from the next week I will start with the OG.

If you have decided to work on SC do not stop . Pls proceed with MGMAT revision + Grammar help if required from any topic + OG questions posted at the end of the SC book.

I will join u next week. :lol:

I am glad I found this forum, I too strugle with the verbal part. I have improved SC, but I need to work hard on RC and CR. Could anyone recommend material/strategy to improve RC?

Are these books sufficient as suggested by the members

SC Mgmat SC
CR Powerscore Gmat CR

Do i need to get the OG 11 as well or OG 10, have the OG 12 and i went through it already but now i am trying to improve SC, CR, RC mainly. OG 10 might be outdated, i dont know.

I mean will there be questions referring to OG 11, 10 in either of the SC,CR books.

Thanks.

If you revise MGMAT SC, powerscore CR , OG12, OG verbal 2 at least 2 times, you will certainly improve in those topics. If you have OG12 do not buy lower versions as they have overlap with Gmatprep. Do Mgmat SC and OG12 together.

Thanks a lot, i now need to start with the CR, SC books then, thank gurpreet for informing me that i dont need to get OG 11, 10.

I will work with Mgmat and bible.

Some prefer Mgmat RC, some prefer Powerscore RC, i understand that RC is more about learning to read passages quickly and summarize them but for practice which is better or probably work with 1000rc.

Hi everyone,
This thread is really wonderful & inspiring... I mean the way u guys are helping each other & improving urself is mindblowing.
Well for me I face a lot of prob in CR & RC. When i take the prep tests & track myself with time in verbal my scores go to 30 only else it is always between 19 & 22. I am really worried of that as my quant comes to 47 - 49 most of the times but verbal is simply pulling me back from a decent score.
I want to join you people and will give the updates. :|

Bumz,

I am on the same exact boat. For now, I have reviewed some CR methods posted in this forum and in Kaplan's book and just doing OG questions. Not sure how to tackle RC though. Is English your first language?

Hey gurpreet or any thread members,

Do u follow any strategy to benefit practically from Manhattan SC, i.e. do u read 2 chapters work on OG,Verbal Guide.

My concern is there are a lot of things being thrown by the book like common prepositions, Middlemen, Warmups, even though it might be bearable to remember these different rules for the first 5 chapters, it would eb difficult to keep all these strategies in head by the end of the chapter, what is the solution?

Just revise again or any other way?

Thanks.

I am finished with the Manhattan SC, OG 12 (SC+CR+RC).

I am solving one full verbal test daily and following remaining chapters in CR bible. Meanwhile, I am revising all the questions, which I have posted/replied on GmatClub, on SC and CR.

I Will start MGMAT SC + OG as suggested by MGMAT in its book. This seems to be good strategy. You also give it a try.
