I scored a 700 on my first attempt. My raw scores were Q49 and V35. I had used official guides for my preparation and took all GMAT Prep tests on my first attempt. What should be my strategy if I am looking at a score around 760?

Hey ashishmanit ,

Welcome to GMATClub and congratulations for getting a 7 on your score. :)

Okay, so your first and foremost strategy should be to Order your ESR and find out the weak areas.

Once done, make sure you work on those areas with right strategies and practice as much as you could.

Work on Verbal alot and at the same time practice tricky and difficult level of Quant questions.

Go for Quality rather than Quantity of practice.

Take multiple mocks and get your target score in mocks first.

All the best. :)

You might have to improve your verbal till 42 in order to get a 760.
V35 clearly shows that you have a good grasp of the concepts. Now, all you need is to practice the mocks under strict timing conditions and capitalize upon your weaknesses.
In case you have exhausted the official mocks, you can go for the Manhattan or Veritas Mocks or even Egmat scholaranium, which is very good for verbal.
For improving your Quant, you can go for the GmatClub Tests.
