hello
and sorry experts to trouble you again
I am new to this forum and looking for some help to conquer GMAT
I have already given GMAT twice and scored 580(q49 v21) and 650(q49 v30) respectively

my experience of recent attempt of GMAT was horrendous. firstly struggled with IR and then struggled with sc although my sectional percentile in SC CR and RC were 68,54,and 47.

please help how can i improve my verbal score to a V35 +
resources used :online : egmat and magoosh books: kaplan book,MGMATbooks,jeff sackman challenge set,veritas prep books,chilly hot gmat,Nirvana sc book and grockit book .i am running short on money so cant afford pricey online coaching or tutors

please help me how to go about with my retake,i am ready to learn from scratch
currently I am doing 1000sc after revising my notes and thinking to do 1000CR and 1000RC

please advise

Hello,

At the outset, I congratulate you on your relentless spirit. Keep it up!

I did not see any official material in your list; I hope that you have covered all the official material. In case you have not, please do so.

Here is an approach that I recommend:

1. Revise all the concept books that you have covered so far.
2. Re-attempt all the questions that you got incorrect in your previous rounds of preparation.
3. Figure out the key pain areas and study some dedicated concept books focusing on the same.
4. Undergo rigorous practice under time pressure; use a material that you have not seen already.
5. Take adequate number of mock tests.
6. An additional tip that I would like to give is to rigorously practice RCs. Often, RCs are underestimated by the GMAT aspirants; being good on RCs helps in overall reading and comprehension speed, something that is at the the crux of the 4 hours long GMAT. Have a fine approach for RCs and then practice 4 RCs per day for a month. You may see some significant improvement on your verbal section.

Rest, after the aforesaid, the score you get, must be your best score. Thereafter, proceed and apply. GMAT matters but is not everything. You can prepare strong applications and thereafter, whichever school you land in, you can perform in that ecosystem and go on to have a fine career for yourself.

All the best!
Maxximus!

Hello,

Please find attched 3 RC books, with 155 RCs overall (and detailed explanations). The folder also contains a strategy file that will help you approach the GMAT RCs in an organized way.

I have been unable to attach (may be the file is heavy), so I am sending a link.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/gzd8ovhyoxj1b ... t.rar?dl=0

Hope that helps.

All the best!
Maxximus

oishik2910, in these various resources, which ones would you recommend for Sentence Correction?

I am looking for some in-depth thorough material, because it looks like I am definitely going to need help in SC.

though I am not an expert in SC i get 70 to 80 percent of questions right so as you asked will tell from my experience

For SC i will suggest egmat gives you a thorough understanding but magoosh will give you help with tough sentences and extra verbiage
EGMAT is very good for learning the process but its bit of a time consuming i must say and application becomes very difficult at times
on other hand magoosh compiles some exceptional rules and techniques and other idioms usage that once you get through your thought process definitely works 95 percent of the time and increases your speed

apart from this if you are just beginning go with Manhattan gmat they have almost all the things but no practice so choice for you will be
if you wanna learn through concepts go with MGMAT but if with practice then accompany others
soon you will recognize the patterns and able to tackle them with ease
