Today I took the diagnostic test in OG 2018, and I am very disappointed :(. I took 5.16 Hours to complete 100 Questions. 48 were Quant based and other 52 were of Verbal section. In Problem-solving out of 24, I got only 7 right, 2 answers were Guessed. In Data sufficiency, I got only 3 right out of 24. In Verba part, I scored 16 out of 17 in reading comprehension. I thought will do better in Verbal but unfortunately, in critical reasoning and in sentence correction sections, I got 5/17 and 4/18 respectively. I am new here, I posted this in the chat box. Sorry about that. I want to score in the line of 700+. I know it's quite impossible considering my scores, but I'm eager to put my time in this. On top of that, I don't have good grades. So, I really need to practice now. I'd love to hear your suggestions for tackling with extremely low skills. Any help is appreciated. Thanks :)

You are doing a lot better than you think. RC is the only section that literally cannot be "trained" efficiently, but it can still be trained. :P

Welcome to the forum and keep GMATing.

Thank you, man. I needed that. I was demotivated by the results for some time and was thinking of giving up on this. :?
:x But I got mad the other day and started with maths basics. :-)

It's all about persistence, mate. Last time I took it, I didn't get the result I wanted. I was back on my study train the afternoon of the same DATE I took the test. I didn't actually study a lot, I spent a lot of time researching on technique because it was painfully obvious that whatever I tried, didn't work. Now I'm feeling a lot better, I think my Verbal skills have probably tripled since the last time I took the test.

It is probably one of the most difficult test on Earth, but it's conquerable just as the one hand stand push-up. Put in your effort, pace yourself, stay calm, and GMAT. :D:D
