Hi all,

As the title states, I haven't touched the GMAT in a year as I was not satisfied with my score in time for applications last year.

I am starting again and wish to apply this year. Some background info:

- I utilized Veritas prep course, some private tutoring (outside), and went through all the OG 16 books as well as Critical Reasoning Bible + this forum.

I don't remember the exact breakdown but I believe I had Q45 and a weak verbal. I am definitely weaker in verbal, especially I would say CR. Sentence correction I understand i can review rules more.

Is there any tips as to what I should start with again? I do not have the finances to do more tutoring or a course. Please, any help is appreciated. I still want to achieve my life dream of breaking that 700 so I can apply confidently. Thank you.

I'm hearing verbal is more difficult now with the new format. I guess I could use advice as to where to start again. Perhaps go through all my old questions again?

Start by taking a practice test! (There's a free MPrep one, if you haven't done it already.) If you score 650 cold after a year without practicing, that tells you something different from if you score a 520. Either way, looking at the questions you missed or spent too much time on will help you decide what to study.
