Hi guys,
i have just started gmat preparation.
quant seems fairly easy to me.
I scored 51 in both the attempts.
My verbal performance has been dismal to say the least.
24 and 25 in both the attempts.
can someone suggest what are the best ways to move forward on this.
what tests shall i give/ materials shall i refer/ strategy that i shall use ?

Hi amitsrivastava1236,

Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

1) How long did you study for each attempt at the GMAT?
2) What study materials did you use for each attempt?

3) What is your goal score?
4) When are you planning to retake the GMAT?
5) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
6) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

Hi amitsrivastava1236!

What are the scores for each of verbal sections? SC is considered the easiest section to improve and RC the hardest.

Hi amitsrivastava1236,

It is very difficult to get Q51 in both your attempts, so kudos on that!
As such, GMAT Verbal is the most difficult section to improve our scores on(especially for non natives)
You can visit the link for a collection of the courses available.
LINK : ... 69396.html

Most of these courses offer a free trial and you should definitely
take a free trial and try to figure out which course works for you.

My personal recommendation will be to go with eGMAT
(which i felt was really good to build the concepts)
Verbal course : ... n-courses/

Hope that helps you!

You've got what it takes, but it will take everything you've got

There can be many reasons for the dismal verbal scores.
I suggest you strengthen your fundamentals using GMAT club grammar book and MGMAT verbal foundations book. After that you can go through MGMAT strategy guides. I was also facing the same situation as yours and I believe I have now improved a lot with these. I still have a long way to go. You can go through Thursdays with Ron videos also.
