Hey,

I just took my first GMAT prep test and scored a 690. My Aim is to score a 740 at least.
My GMAT exam is scheduled in a month.

I took the test after studying a for around 3 days so i know there is scope for improvement.

I would appreciate any suggestions for how to improve my score, especially verbal.

Are there any other advanced level preparatory materials that you found useful?

Thanks.

Hi there!
Haha what a coincidence, I just took the first GMAT prep test today and scored exactly the same 690 Q48 V36. The difference is, I've got only 10 days left to lift the score up a bit...
Any suggestions?? Anything worthwile doing in these few days??
P.S. I've read Manhattan Books and already finished all OG 12, OG Quant and OG Verbal questions.

If I were you at this point I would do two things:

1. Practice 1 or 2 CATS for stamina practice (but not too close to the test date).

2. Practice OG questions. Look at your error logs; see which problems :
a. you got wrong
b. took too long
c. you got right but are still unsure about.

Redo these problems until you get them right/can do them under two mins/feel comfortable.

Yeah, I will probably do that:)
When it comes to time management, I finished both quant and verbal 5-7 min before time limit... At the beginning I was scared that I won't finished in time so rushed a bit but then it turned completly opposite. Got to do sth with that:)
