Hi,

This is my first post on the forum. My first attempt in GMAT 620 ( Q49, V27)

I had solved a lot of material OG, Manhattan, Princeton.. I even gave the mocks and although dint excel in Verbal but was always in the range of 32 - 38.

The score of 620 came as a shock and want to retake gmat. Any advice on way ahead for Verbal section only. As quant has always been good and in the range of 48 - 51 always.

Need tips for Verbal, how to improve which material to refer. I have a months time for preparation.

Dear dishaagarwal,
I'm happy to respond.

First of all, here's a one-month schedule.

Since you are very good in math, I would suggest skipping the math videos and watching the verbal videos twice.

Here's a free idiom ebook:

Now, I have an important question for you. How much do you READ? If you want to make major advanced in your verbal score in the next month, then you need to read at least an hour a day over and above any GMAT preparations you are already doing. Here are some suggestions about what to read for the GMAT:

I hope all this helps.
Mike

Hi

It would help if you narrow down what you think went wrong exactly- what areas gave you trouble. If you are constantly in the 32-38 range there can be an issue of timing strategy of course, but there may be a few gaps in knowledge here and there (although probably not all that many) r perhaps it is an issue of changing the paradigm for yourself a bit as to how to look at certain quesitons and how to attack them. With reading skills, for instance, these are skills we develop from a very young age and we therefore navigate through and organize texts very differently from one another- it may just have to do with teaching yourself a new way of looking at and attacking text. It is certainly doable but first we would need to diagnose what exactly is going on.
