All:

I scored a 710 on my first gmat (Q48 V 39), I am really looking to push my score up to a 730+.

I took my gmat a second time and scored a 690 (really poor performance day as I was mentally exhausted).

What tips do you have for me to increase my score? My main weaknesses are in Sentence Correction on the Verbal side (Sentence correction is by far my biggest overall issue) and on Quant I feel overall confident just get tripped up by the occasional question related to algebra and geometry.

Any preferred study material or online solutions to help raise my score would be very helpful.

Thanks!

I have used the official GMAT guide and just online Manhattan prep and Official GMAT Practice tests. Those have helped getting me to a 700 but I need the extra push to get to 730+. On my second test I took the test after work (not a smart idea) and was just not on my game which led to some stupid mistakes.

You may find this article helpful. It talks about the difference between a ~700 score and a 99th percentile score (at the time of writing, 760). https://www.manhattanprep.com/gmat/blog ... and-a-760/

First of all, let me mention that scoring 700+ in the GMAT is definitely a good reflection of your level of preparation. However, you must ensure to keep this up so that you can improve your score further.

In e-GMAT, we stress on precision targeting – identify the exact areas which restricting one from reaching a higher score. You can figure out the procedure of the same in the following manner:

• As per your Enhanced Score Report, first locate the areas or specific modules in which your performance is not upto the mark.
• Take the specific modules only for rework, at first. Like if your score is not so good in Sentence Correction, take up that module and revise all the concepts as well as application quizzes.
• Repeat the same for all the necessary modules for both quant and verbal, so that you don’t leave any possible gaps in your preparation.

Once you are done with this, you should consider going through a topic-wise Workshop/Webinar, to ensure that you have left no stones unturned. You can also get a taste of different varieties of questions on varied difficulty levels, in platforms like Scholaranium.

Also attend a free session on the Strategies of GMAT, to ensure you leave no stones unturned.

There are students who started with 700+ attempt in the original GMAT, improved their scores to 770. So, it is definitely a case of focused preparation, added with continuous effort.
