How should I assess myself on verbal  [#permalink]

Hey guys,

I need to evaluate myself for Verbal. I have just completed studying Verbal.

I have target score of 730 in mind

I have studied CR from Powerscore Bible, SC from Manhattan and Ron Videos and RC from Manhattan

I have solved questions from OG 2018 and OG- Verbal review 2018

My accuracy was 85% in CR, 80% in RC and 70% in SC.

I know that for SC, I'm definitely far from my target score. Is my accuracy for CR and RC is close to my aspired score? Or do I need to work on these topics also?

Hey buddy,

the OG questions are always the material that is closest to the real test.

However, to asses how your current skills would translate to a respective verbal score you would need to complete a full CAT test.
Due to the computer adaptive format as well as the strain of sitting through 36 questions combined with the time pressure creates the most realistic score prediction.

Thus, I would recommend to do a full length CAT (given that you have already finished your Quant studies)

Regards,
Chris

Thanks Chris for the reply.

I have not yet started quants.

Would you suggest that I first complete quants and then assess myself on a CAT?

There are some providers that offer Verbal only CATs (e.g. Gmatclub), that could give you an early indication.
However, a full length CAT is always paramoung with regards to its score implications.

Most people recommend to "safe" the full length CATs until you are familiar with Quant and Verbal concepts.
This has two major benefits:

1. The score you receive in the respective CAT is a more realistic image of your current abilities.
2. You can identify potential weaknesses, rather than just attributing wrong answers to beeing unfamiliar with the respective concept.

Best regards,
Chris

People generally suggest that you cast a wide scope when you first begin studying. Go from concept to concept and familiarize yourself with the material. You can follow one of the suggested study plans on the forum if you want.

I suggest the Manhattan SC guide. I found their CR guide useful as well.

There's a post on the forum about a list of SC questions for building questions. Just google "gmatclub 100 sentence correction building concepts" and it should come up.
