I am just 1 and half moth away from my GMAT test still I have many problems in Verbal and Quant section. Could you please suggest me that how should I study remaining days to improve my score? I need to improve verbal section more than that of quant.
Currently I get 500 but my target is to have 650 at final test.

Materials I use

GMAT Club Quastion Bank
OG 15, 16, 17, 18
Varitas Prep
GMAT Bible
Usually in Passage section I am not so good that's why I want to improve SC and CR section. In these two section I can correct 60% question but I want to improve here.

So what technique should I apply to read quickly and correct maximum questions in SC and CR part?
and for the quant section some easy question I do wrong and some extreme hard question I do correct. So here, what should I do?

Hi Faridtalukder,

I am glad you reached out and I’m happy to help. Before providing specific advice, it would be helpful to learn more about your GMAT experience and score goals. I have some questions:

1) How many practice GMATs have you taken? Please list the dates on which you’ve taken any practice GMATs, the total scores, and the quant and verbal scores, as well as how you were feeling while taking the tests. Also, please tell me where these tests came from (ex:

2) Please describe how you have been studying. For how many hours a day have you been studying and for how many months?

3) To what programs will you be applying? What are the deadlines for these programs?

4) By when would you LIKE to take the GMAT? By when MUST you take the GMAT?

Hi FaridTalukder,


We strongly believe that every student is different and therefore their study plans should not be the same but tailored to their strengths and target score. Read below to know why.

1. Many Paths to the same Target Score

Let me give you an example of this of how there can be different paths to the same target score.
• M, a Czech lady and Humanities background works at one of the Big 4 Consulting Firms. She is poor in Quant and average in Verbal. Her target GMAT score is 660.
• A, an Indian man with Engineering background, works in an electronics company. He is good in Quant and average in Verbal. His target GMAT score is also 660.
These are two students with different backgrounds and strengths and even though their target score is the same they can leverage their different strengths to reach their target scores. One can plan to score higher on Verbal and the other can plan to score higher on Quant. The below being the two combinations they can plan for:

This difference in the target sectional scores will drastically impact their study plan in terms of the time they spend preparing for each section.

2. Customized Study Plan better than a General Plan

With a personalized study plan, you can reduce your study time by 30% to achieve the same score. Or if you have scheduled your test already and intend to spend the entire pre-planned time for GMAT prep then you can add 50 points to the score you would have achieved if you followed a general plan or no plan at all.

The 50-point score difference that I mentioned above could be the difference between getting an admit or being waitlisted or being out of race for your dream college. While a 700 may open the doors of quite a few good colleges for you, a 750 will ensure you get scholarships/fellowships from these colleges.


I can help you craft a study plan and strategy to achieve your target score. To do so, I just need some more details from you:
    a. Which mock tests have you taken?
    b. What were your sectional and sub-sectional scores in that mock tests?
    c. How many hours per day would you be able to devote till your test?
    d. Write to a support team with the above data for a personalized study plan
Write to with the response to these questions to get a customized study plan.

Here are some examples of students who improved from a low GMAT score to their target score:
