How to crack the GMAT verbal section? [#permalink]

I have been studying for GMAT for a while but somehow my verbal score is stuck at 30. I have read the MGMAT books but nothing seems to change the score. I am aiming for a 700+. Kindly suggest a plan.

P.S - RCs are my weakest point.

Manhattan guides are great. But if they do not provide any help go through SC grail for SC and Powerscore CR bible for CR and read manhattan guides again.

Hi Stuti17,

Here is what if followed will help you improve verbal immensely:

The real issue:
those who have not been the avid readers are going to take time to improve in verbal.

SC:
Meaning
MGMAT SC - Do this as many times as you can
e-GMAT

CR:
Patterns
Pre-thinking/Paraphrasing/finding the weak logic or be able to criticize
MGMAT CR/Power Score CR Bible

RC:
Read 2hr everyday (from sites like newyorker/wsj/havard magazine/Novels)
MGMAT RC

Overall:
Read Read Read.
Practice alot.
Do only official material or MGMAT
Spend as much time as it takes to learn from every single word from a question.
Revise Revise Revise
Make flash cards or Sit silently and think about the patterns - just keep them fresh in your memory. Do it till the time those patterns are not 2+2=4 for you.

Remedy:
READING: Improves timing and reading of relevant topics gives you background of the topics discussed in GMAT.
PRACTICE: We know it all :D
REVISION: It helps our mind to recognize the patterns and remember the mistakes we made. We get better at deciding on a choice.
Pattern recognition: Saves alot of time. Specially in CR. This is one big thing that helps in prethinking.

Hi Stuti17,

Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What materials have you used besides the books that you mentioned?
3) How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for each)?

Goals:
4) What is your goal score?
5) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
