Hi,

I Got 680 in my first attempt at GMAT with 31 in verbal & 50 in quant.
My target is 750+ score.

I have roughly 20 days , Completely for GMAT, as i have taken break from work.

In last attempt i didn't give any practice tests.
I did OG11, 450 Qs of SC1000. I didn't practice RC at all.
My Quant is decent and i believe i can make it 51 in my next attempt but verbal is such a mystery.
please suggest me how can i work to meet the target, or how should i plan my work in coming weeks.
I can dedicate my 20 days completely to GMAT so time is enough for the cause.

hello, I didn't want this thread to go to the bottom of the food chain before someone realizes. Since you've already had a grasp on the quantitative part, I figure I'd give some suggestions regarding the verbal section.

I wish you the best of luck and I hope you achieve your target score (though 680 is already an awesome score)

Hello punoo23,

I would not spend any time on math. There is little to no benefit in moving from 50 to 51.

You will have much better success boosting your score by getting your verbal score up.

Take a full practice exam (see the thread for practice tests):

Use this practice test to
1. Make sure your 50 in math was not a fluke (make sure you score within a small range). If this is the case, your math is solid and should not more prep time.
2. Go through the different questions in verbal and come up with an action plan. Focus on your most deficient areas (RC, CR, SC) and then take another practice test when you feel you've improved.

Best of luck,
