Hello All ,

I took Gmat Prep today and its the first time I took gmatprep or any other test ever.
I am pretty good at quants and could score 49. Still I got some 12 incorrects and I know my weak areas in maths and I am about to start preparing them.....

However I seem to have a very bad reading speed and could not complete the verbal (I had to 5 questions in last 15 secs....).
I answeres 19 of them incorrectly , there were a few silly mistakes , the major problem I observed is my reading speed only...


Could someone please suggest a way to tackle verbal .....?
Also , could someone tell me if the OG Verbal reviw has the same set of questions as the main OG book?

I am done with OG11 , I am planning re-solve it though , then I may go for OG10.
I am plannig to write GMAT in the month of may '09...

Waiting for your suggestions guys....

You can find a number of suggestions in the Share Your GMAT Experience forum - look at these threads:

1. t60945-780-q50-v47
2. t57409-750-q49-v42-my-gmat-experience

Also here is a thread that recommends prep books:
t74310-recommendations-for-best-gmat-prep-books

Finally, what found in my experience helped a lot with RC was to read serious books. Magazines, in my view, are too short and too distracting. Books, on the other hand, will draw you in and will get your mind into the focused reading mode. Here is a thread with recommendations for books - if you are a non-native speaker, I would say it will be very hard to cross over the v35 barrier without this:

t76079-books-to-read-improve-verbal-score-and-enjoy-a-good-read

P.S. The verbal OG has different questions from the 11th edition Official Guide, but I was lead to be believe that 11th and 10th editions had 95% of the same questions.

Hey John,

I never said that I am the only one with these problems.... :lol:
I just couldn't find the information of my own....maybe I am not good at it........I am new to this forum, so it may take some time.

I guess its not wrong to be honest and ask for some help.....which I got .......thanks to BB.

By the way , why dont you just ignore some of my queries if you find them silly .... :lol:

agree 8-)

however, if everyone who is new in the forum asks always the same... well, the forum will have plenty of question all of them the same, won't it?

BTW, in my country (Spain) we name your behavoir as "minimum effort law" which means "let's to ask instead of spending a few minutes looking for the information"

just my point of view

Cheers
