Note that I’m not an English native speaker.

Hi Tamim11,

Raising a 410 to a 550 is an achievable goal; you might find that simply by becoming more familiar with the general content and 'style' of the GMAT, you could potentially pick up some easy points without too much trouble. Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on your timeline and goals:

1) What study materials do you currently have?
2) What were the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for this 410.
3) Did you have to 'rush' to finish any of the sections (and guess on a bunch of questions)? If so, then how many questions did you guess on at the end of each section?
4) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
5) What is the application deadline for the Program that you plan to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

1) Still I don’t have any materials, i need suggestions.

2) Q29 V17.

3) i guessed few questions, because I didn’t know how to solve them, and to save time for other questions, and for the sentence correction part I solved it based on how the the sentence sounds.

4) i still have plenty of time as the deadline for my application is April 1st, but i wanna get rid of the gmat within 1-1.5 months, so i can have time for application essay and visa.

5) April 1st.

Hi Tamim11

Going from 410 to 550 is very much achievable even if you are not a native English speaker. GMAT tests higher-order reasoning skills and not language skills so it will be important that you build core skills that are required to score well in GMAT. In order to help students plan for their GMAT in a manner that suits them, we created a detailed article on Personalized Study Plans for 100+ score improvement. Along with guidelines to create a personalized plan, we have also provided 3 sample plans that you can adapt to your situation.
- Richa followed a methodical approach and improved from 470 to 720 (V16 to V39). Click here to learn how she achieved this feat.

Hi Tamim11 ,

Welcome to GMAT Club!

As others have mentioned, your target is certainly achievable. It sounds like you're looking for a full course and as you may already know, there are many options out there, from self-study to private tutoring companies to online platforms, most of which cover the same material with slightly different approaches. As such, before making a final decision, take the time to view your options, see what works best for you.

At examPAL, we use an AI and wisdom-of-the-crowds based algorithm to fit each student with the learning method that works best for them: as different students have different strengths and different weaknesses, there is a great need for this personalized approach. Feel free to check us out here, even if you don't decide to purchase you can view all of our lectures and introductions free of cost.

Best of luck!

Hi Tamim11,

Studying for the GMAT now - well in advance of when you plan to apply to School - is a smart choice. It allows you the flexibility to study however you choose and make adjustments to your studies as needed. Considering the variety of subjects that you will need to learn, you might need more than 1 to 1.5 months though (it will likely take you at least 3 months of consistent, guided study to consistently hit your Goal Score).

1) Going forward, how many hours do you think you can consistently study each week?
