Hey All,

I have been preparing for around a month and appeared for the test last Saturday.
I am quite unhappy with the actual GMAT score and this happened in spite of me scoring 720 in both the GMAT Prep Exams .

I have attached the enhanced Score Report for reference , can anyone look into it and suggest how I need to go about my Verbal Prep.
I need assistance in the verbal part since the detailed report has some very frightening numbers of me not doing well in the certain sub sections ( 0% and 50% correct in some sub sections)
Please suggest the right resources so that I can end up improving my Verbal score to at least 38.
P.S: I plan to re take the exam in the next 20 days.

Well SC pretty much stands out as the area where there is maximum scope for improvement.
Another observation is you took much more time to answer questions on an average in the third set as compared to say the second set and yet accuracy was lower in the third set despite the difficulty level being the same. Guess there were more SC questions in the third set.
In terms of resources, you can look at Manhattan SC. If you are willing to invest, you can opt for e-gmat's SC course. Used it personally and benefited from it.
Good luck for the next attempt.

Hey Hareesh2992

Welcome to GMATClub!

You should also try to get the Quant score up to Q50-51. In order to achieve this, my recommendation
is to go with the GMATClub Quant tests, which IMO, are a worthy investment. This slight jump will ensure
an overall score increase. For SC - I would blindly go with eGMAT as nishantd88 has already suggested.

Q49 - V38 will get you an overall score of 710
Q50 - V38 will get you an overall score of 720
Q51 - V38 will get you an overall score of 730

For the next 20 days, divide your time in such a way that you spend 30% of your overall time doing the
questions in the GMATClub Quant tests and 70% improving your SC while keeping in touch with RC & CR.

Hope this helps you!
