Hey guys

I'm taking the GMAT in 3 weeks and need advice. I did a few MGMATs and I am not scoring as well as I would like to on the verbal (mostly on the RC and CR). What can I do to improve this?

I've done the OG, OGverbal, GMAT800, MGMAT SC, all of the GMATClub tests (quant & verbal), and 3 MGMATs. Note that I am a native english speaker.

Thanks!

Hi All,

I also need advise.

How can I improve my score? I started my GMAT Prep some time back and I joined Kaplan class but my prep is not good at all. I have my GMAT TEST after one week and I am thinking to postpone it for some more time as I gave GMATPRP yesterday and I got just 620. I am so much frustrated.

Here are my Kaplan Scores;-
KAPLAN
CAT1 -660
CAT2 -620
CAT3-620
CAT4-600
CAT5-590-
CAT6-630
CAT7-650

Here are my princton scores:-
CAT1- 590
CAT2 -580
CAT3 -640

I am good in Quant but I am very bad in verbal. can you please tell me how can I improve my verbal score?
I have already given above test so I am running out of CATs. Can you please let me know ant other resource for GMAT TEST.

I read on this forrum about "1000SC" and 1000CR". This is new for me. Can you please let me know what are these and where can I get them?

I will really appreciate your help.

Regards
VKG

When studying and you are scoring in the range you are currently scoring, then you need to change your strategy.

Typically, people just study sections/topics and test themselves using OG questions.

But if you are scoring around 600 and you end up practicing 700 and over questions, then no matter how well you are doing on higher level questions, your score is not going to improve.

CAT isn't going to constantly test you on 700 and higher level questions (that you prepped for) unless you get 600 to 700 level questions correct.

My advice (if your score isn't climbing) is to start from easier/lower level questions. Master those and worry about difficult questions.
