I had given GMAT an year back and scored 740.
Recently I started studying again as I want a score of 760 atleast.
After studying for 2 months, I gave 4 GMAT official mock tests and scored a perfect 760 on each with 44-46 in verbal.
I had given the tests perfectly with gmat like conditions. But on the day of exam, I scored a 710 with 36 in verbal.
I would really like some opinions about why that might have happened.
Also, I am planning to give the exam again in 15 days as I have prepared really hard already and would like some source book suggestions for Verbal section for my final 15 days; need advance questions. Any help would be appreciated.

I'm quite sure that you are capable of getting a 760 (740 is 97% and 760 is 99%). I'd check to see whether you were already familiar with the questions you saw on your GMATPreps (you must have taken those tests last year). As for advice, I'm not sure whether you need any general advice. Generally students with the type of score that you have spend their time working on removing any small weaknesses that remain. That is probably what you need to be working on as well (get an ESR for this attempt if you it'll help).

Also, keep in mind that the very fact that 740 and 760 are so close means that your GMAT score is unlikely to be the reason for whatever it is that is driving you to take the exam again. Take the exam again if you want, but keep in mind that there are probably more important things you could be doing right now to bolster your application.

Hi storm05,

In addition to chatting with folks on this thread, take a look at the GMAT Club reviews for verbal courses, and also read through some GMAT success stories to see what materials have worked well for other test-takers.

If you’d like some specific advice on how to improve your verbal skills, feel free to reach back out, and I’d be happy to help.

Good luck!
