Hi All,

I am looking for advice on how to boost my GMAT score from 620 to 650?

My last 4 practice tests (Veritias and GMAC) have resulted in a near identical score of 620 42Q and 34V.

I have 5 weeks until my test but have been studying for about a year on and off approx. 10hours a week with little improvement to my score.

Any advice would be appreciated. Also does anyone know how to see the question explanations on the GMAC practice tests?

Thanks,

Sam.

sam6148 - Welcome to GMAT Club!!

Several test takers commit a mistake of viewing the GMAT score as a three digit number; well, it's not. You have to analyse your sectional and sub-sectional performances. Are you strong in SC, CR, or RC? What is your accuracy rate in each of these sub-sections? Do you find quant or verbal easier? Trust me viewing the GMAT as a three digit number and then putting in several hours of unstructured study hours will do you no good. Instead, doing so can actually actually harm your performance.

That said, I would highly recommend that you enroll in a structured online course rather use free materials and tutorial videos available online. At a 620 level, you may very well need to a few more GMAT concepts and build strong strategies for each question type.

Please take a few moments to review the GMAT Club study plan.

Hello sam6148,

A score of 620 (Q 40, V30) seems to be decent, and you are close to the target score of 700. Remember various possible combinations to achieve a score of 700 or above: V37/Q50, V39/Q49, V43/Q45.

GMAT test needs a balance of both the sections, verbal and quant. You need to pay attention to both to score 680+.

The study plan that we will recommend you is:

1. Go through a quick concept refresher.
2. Take a mock test to check your performance.
3. For Verbal SC, refer OG or Aristotle Grail.
4. For Quant, visit our website https:// http://www.mathrevolution.com and check our 5- hour lesson for math. Also, check our free trial lessons and free videos.
5. Learn quick and alternative approaches to solve questions.
6. Study from reliable resources and solve updated questions that meet GMAT trends.
7. Take a diagnostic test to track your performance. You may try our free mock test.
