Greetings!

I recently gave a practice test on Kaplan and scored 630 (Q41, V35). I am aiming for a 730. I have 1.5 months left to prepare.

I would appreciate some help to increase my score.

Thank you.

One CAT cannot provide an estimation of your score. I'd advise that you take 2 more CATs to benchmark your performance. Doing so will
Official GMAT Prep CATs would provide the best estimation. Even though it has tweaked the scoring algorithm, Kaplan historically provides lower score compared with actual GMAT. Hence, at this point, a GMAT Prep CAT would provide you the best measure of your performance.
More important, what type of questions are you're getting incorrect?
Usually, test takers take a round 3 months of disciplined preparation to hit 700+ score.

Your Quant score seems very low and Verbal score is quite decent. Since you have total 1.5 months.
Figure out your weak areas from both QA and VA from the tests you have given. Start solving atleast 30 questions for each topic. You can do the same on GMATclub as GMAT club has a good amount of collection of good question from various GMAT resources.

Also keep taking mocks every weekend to asses your improvement. Hope that helps.

Hi kritid99,

Welcome to GMATCLUB. 1.5 months is good enough to improve your score. It’s a good thing you have taken a GMAT Mock once. You now know your weaknesses and work on them. If you are willing to study dedicatedly for that period, you are sure to achieve your goal. I think you need to solidify you base and adopt a proper technique to answer the questions. I believe you may benefit from taking a GMATPREP course. If you are willing, there are some great GMAT prep companies that can help you with your preparation.

In order to make an informed decision I would highly encourage you to go to their websites and try on their free trial and decide for yourself which one do you like better. You try out free access to EmpowerGMAT, Magoosh and Optimus Prep as they have great reviews on GMATCLUB.

Also for verbal, I would highly encourage you to consider e-gmat verbal online or the e-gmat verbal live course. They are both amazing courses especially designed for non-natives. They offer almost 25% of their courses for free so you can try out their free trial to decide which one you want to go for. Plus the e-gmat Scholaranium which is included in both the courses is one of the best verbal practice tools in the market. You can easily track your progress in that you can identify your strengths and analyze and improve on your weak areas.

You can also try out the MGMAT guides they are phenomenal and cover the entire syllabus really well. Just by going through these guides and solving the OG will help you reach 600+.I must add that if you are particularly looking to discover and improve on your weak areas in Quant; a subscription to GMATCLUB tests is the best way to do that. They are indeed phenomenal and will not only pinpoint your weak areas but also help you improve on them.

Further taking multiple mocks might help. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

Further another advantage of taking many mocks is to build up your stamina. Apart from the GMATPREP tests, taking practise tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

Lastly, you can check out a very interesting article by Mike McGarry from Magoosh detailing a 3 month study plan

https://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/3-month-g ... -students/. You will find it very helpful as it gives out a study plan as per your needs.

Hope this helps. All the best.
