I took my GMAT yesterday and got a 550. My Q was 41 and V 25.
I did this with about 6 weeks of study. I want to redo the test. My target score is in the range of 650-700. obviously my verbal score is poor.
I want to use a strategy for improving my verbal. Any suggestions ?
SC ?
CR ?
RC ?
This time i want to spend a little more time before i sit for the test. I am working full time.

I am confident of my Math. In the real test, i did miss a few simple questions. With lots of practice i will be able to improve further.

most here will tell you that SC is the best place to make up some verbal ground. 41 quant is good (I'd be happy ) but with CR and RC, it can be tough for people, especially non-native speakers.

One way to improve that has been suggested for RC and CR is just plain reading. Specifically, journals, business books (Kellogg on Marketing is tough), and the like.

Many prescribe the Manhattan SC book for SC help. I do not have the book, but it seems to be highly recommended on this board.

My suggestion for CR and RC is to study each and every problem in the OG Verbal and OG 11. I'm no expert, but I have improved greatly by just spending a few minutes every number (including the ones I got correctly.) Also, try to familiarize yourself with the questions. They are almost all the same, just written differently.

Good luck, we can do it!

Is it true that the GMAT test questions are almost all the same as OG, just written differently ?
