Hi Prateek,

Have you considered taking a class? It sounds like there are some elements of the test you are struggling with. I used Manhattan GMAT and found it to be very helpful. Not only did they do a good job of teaching and testing concepts in a slightly more dynamic way than the books presented them, but it was helpful to be in a class with other bright people who were asking good questions.

A number of the test prep services offer online courses you can take from home. I would recommend looking into one. It may be able to accelerate your learning.

Good luck!

Feeling lot more confident after reading chapter 1 word trans.....Day before yesterday i had 0 accuracy on mgmat problem set but after reading a practicing again.....Tested my self on OG....It really looked easy infront of mgmat problem set....

Today plan will search forums n practice word problems on gmatclub......
