Hi,
Thanks for looking into my case.
I have taken GMAT last week and scored 460 (Verbal: 13 and Quant: 42).
My verbal is very weak however my maths is on due to my engineering background.
Could you please suggest me what should i do?, what notes should i follow?, should i take GRE now? and when should i write exam again as i am looking for January?

Dear Andysingh,

I'm happy to respond. :-)

As you may have read, we don't regularly answer questions in the Magoosh subforum on GMAT Club. I am sorry that you had to wait a little for a response.

I will make a few recommendations. First, read this blog:
How to Improve Your GMAT Verbal Score
If you want to improve in verbal, you need to make improving English your #1 priority. Practice reading every single day. Push yourself to struggle with hard reading material every day. Have you heard athletes say "no pain, no gain"? What's true in physical exercises is also true in mastering a language. If you are not making yourself uncomfortable every day in how hard you are pushing yourself, then you are not learning as fast as you could be learning.

I'm going to recommend these free English lessons:
Magoosh English
Watch all of those repeatedly until you absolutely master all of it.

Here are some GMAT Idiom flashcards. Drill these until you master them all.

Do you need to take your TOEFL or have you taken that already?

Once you have mastered the Magoosh English lessons, then you would be ready to sign up for Magoosh GMAT.

If you take all these steps, you can eventually work you way to a respectable GMAT score, but it is going to take sustained effort and dedication. If you want easy shortcuts to English mastery, you will never get there. If you are willing to put into this effort your blood, sweat, and tears, then you will make substantial improvements.

Does all this make sense?
Mike :-)
