Hello All,

I have just recently found out about GMAT, many have advised taking a diagnostic test to know where I stand so I took one without any revision or practice.
So the following is what I scored in GMATprep software GMAT1.

Q(50) 90%, V(30) 56%. TOTAl: 660 81%
Q I had a total of 8 mistakes(all were silly mistakes) completed 20 minutes early
V I had a total of 15 mistakes. completed 10 minutes early, I think it will take practice to manage time properly.

see the break-up below.

SC: total(17), correct(9), incorrect(8).
RC: total(13), correct(7), incorrect(6).
CR: total(11), correct(10), incorrect(1).


it seems SC questions were more in number, is this the general scenario? or did it happen because I was getting SC questions wrong and getting CR right?
Is the test adaptive not only in the level of the questions but also type?

anyways it seems I am weak in SC and RC, in many cases in SC I felt two options were correct, don't know what to do now.
My plan is to write the GMAT exam at the end of October's so I have around 3 months of time to prep.

what do you guys suggest? which books are good? I think I should improve my SC a lot, will it be tough for me (non-native)? I am thinking to read SC grail, RC grail and Manhattan SC, RC and Veritas SC, RC.

Also do you people think I can climb to 760+?
Thank you. :)

Hi DIII,

I see that you have just started your preparation.

You need to build the concepts/fundamentals before you jump in solving the problems. You can do so by choosing one of the following ways:
1. In person classes/private tutoring
2. Online classes
3. Self paced online preparatory course
4. Book heavy approach

Whatever you choose, make sure that you choose one. Because GMAT tests you on some concepts and fundamentals that you can learn from a course. Most of the preparatory companies including ours offer a free trial of our course. You can take the trial and see if the course suits your needs.

In addition to the preparatory material, buy the Official Guides(both the Official Guide and the Verbal Review), Question Pack 1 and the 4 official mock CATs. They should be an indispensable part of your preparation.

You need close to 3 months to prepare well for the GMAT.
1. Understand the concepts and fundamentals before jumping into problem solving
2. Solve full length CATs including AWA and IR. You can get two free GMAT Prep mock CATs and can purchase two more from mba.com
3. Make sure you solve the official questions from the Official Guide

You can increase your score by drilling down deep into each question type:

SC: The questions test various concepts such as S-V agreement, modifiers, parallelism etc. Find out what troubles you.
As a general guide line, you can start solving a question by taking the following things in consideration:

1. Find out the subject and the verb
2. See that the S&V agree in number
3. Look out for the modifiers
4. Look out for parallelism
5. Look out for usage of certain words - such as vs like, few vs less etc.

CR: There might be certain types of questions that are troubling you. May be Assumption, may be conclusion, inference etc.
You need to find that out and then practice them
RC: This again can be drilled down into different types of questions and also different topics. See what questions and topics trouble you the most and then practice accordingly.
Quants: Again try to break the questions in topics such as Algebra, Number system (very important), Geometry, PnC etc.
