GMAT: how to maintain quant score while improving verbal?  [#permalink]

I just took the GMAT last Tueaday. I scored 730 with a Q48 and V42. I've always had a pronounced weakness in math, so I decided that I would focus my studies entirely on the quant section for the exam I just took. So, that verbal score is a score with no practice in GMAT verbal questions. I'm thinking that if I really bust hump the way that I did with quant (may literally sign up for an LSAT course), I might be able to raise my verbal to a V47 to V48 and round out my score to 770 or so. The only thing I used to study for the math was Target Test Prep, but I've already finished the course, so I'm not exactly sure how to proceed from / not sure what to practice with for quant. Has anyone else been in a situation similar to mine and come off successfully raising their verbal score while maintaining a decent quant score? Again, keep in mind I am not a natural at quant. I need to keep practicing to keep my skills. Looking to put roughly 4 hours / day into my studies. Thanks for any comments you might have.

Just a little context, white male currently in last year at a deep non-target, about to start in an IB analyst role at a BB in NYC so I may need an MBA to transition into the buy side after banking.

Dear candyandy

Congratulations on the score! Further, sincere appreciation on trying to aim higher!

Improving a bit on each of quant as well as verbal shall get you to your desired score. Our study resources have been prepared keeping the 99th percentile in mind and they may be the answer to what you need. I suggest that you opt for a demo access to get a feel of the conceptual videos and the practice questions (you will get access to 15 videos and ~100 practice questions on some of the topics that students generally struggle with). I also recommend taking the free mock test you will get here to diagnose your five weakest areas in quant as well as verbal- that insight will help you in planning your next attempt.

Rest, make sure to analyze your mistakes carefully and learn from them- that is crucial when you try to left a high score to the 99th percentile.

All the best!

A V42 with no prep is really, really good. I'd say maybe a little bit of time to start off with. What would be important here is to keep taking GMATPreps regularly to check whether you need to change the time allocation.
