Hello,

I gave my GMAT today and the result was very disappointing. I could only manage a 570 . I know this score wont take me anywhere and since this year is going to be my first and last attempt at GMAT, I would not be able to get through IIM Ahemdabad since their application deadline is NoV 5. However, I am still hopeful of other schools and going to give another shot at GMAT in late November, 2018. I have cancelled my current score as it really meant nothing.
Now, I need to prepare really hard as I am looking at a jump of around 150 points. I scored 43 in Quant and 25 in Verbal. Could you please guide me as to how I should strategise my study, particularly verbal part of it in order to get a competitive score of 700+?

Hey! Try doing OG 12 n 19 all three official books.
For Quantitative, check out bunel notes and Quant 700 level questions. You can search from Gnat club. Review OG maths book until you answer with 100% accuracy.

For SC: Read and practise GMAT grammar book ; manhattan ; Arostotle SC... jot down notes.

For CR: Read Powerscore CR and Gmat club questions series

For RC : Gmatclub question series : this you can find by searching here. This platform has arranged the RC topicwise. Understand various topics such as Humanities, science, etc and build up your vocabulary as well. Make small note while reading passage.

Hope this helps

Welcome to GMAT Club

Here is a study plan for you

Best Books

For learning Concepts

Manhattan Quant Guides
Manhattan Verbal Guides
For CR: The Powerscore GMAT Critical Reasoning Bible
For RC: Aristotle RC Grail

For Practice

The Official Guide for GMAT 2015-18
The Official Guide for GMAT Quantitative Review 2015-18
The Official Guide for GMAT Verbal Review 2015-18

Best Courses

1. e-GMAT
2. Empower GMAT
3. Math Revolution (Only Math)

You can start with Quant or Verbal which suits you. If you have started with Quant then Start with the Arithmetic but if started with verbal then start first with Sentence correction. One month for learning Quant concepts and one month for practicing question and same practice for Verbal. During you Practicing question don't forget to make an error log to track your weak areas after practice. Once you know your weak areas revise your Concepts related to those areas and do some more Practice. 6-8 CATs are enough for practice the real tests. Make your Stamina for sitting 3 hours in the test and don't study more than 2 hours in one sit and 4 hours per day

Top CATs for Practice

1. Official GMAC CATs
2. Manhattan CATs
3. Kaplan CATs
4. GMAT Club Quant CATs

Good Luck

Hi preetisuman,

Welcome to GMATCLUB. You should dedicate around 3months to improve your score. It's a good thing you have given GMAT once. You now know your weaknesses and can work on them. If you are willing to study dedicatedly for that period, you are sure to achieve your goal. I believe you may benefit from taking a GMATPREP course. You need to work on solidifying your base and clearing your concepts. If you are willing, there are some great GMAT prep companies that can help you with your preparation.

In order to make an informed decision I would highly encourage you to go to their websites and try on their free trial and decide for yourself which one do you like better. You try out free access to EmpowerGMAT, Magoosh and Optimus Prep as they have great reviews on GMATCLUB.

Also for verbal, I would highly encourage you to 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.

You can also use MGMAT guides for your preparation. MGMAT guides are phenomenal and cover the entire syllabus really well. I must add that if you are particularly looking to discover and improve on your weak areas in quant; a subscription to GMATCLUB tests is the best way to do that. They are indeed phenomenal and will not only pinpoint your weak areas but also help you improve on them.

Further taking multiple mocks might help. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have a 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 practise tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

Lastly, you can check out a very interesting article by Mike McGarry from Magoosh detailing a 3 month study plan

https://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/3-month-g ... -students/. You will find it very helpful as it gives out a study plan as per your needs.

Hope this helps. All the best.

Hi preeti!

I am an IIM Bangalore alumnus. You need to identify your weak areas and focus on those for the next month.

PM me and I can share some materials.
