i am no expert but I think full length tests are the only way by which you can improve your accuracy.

HI Pallavi0102,

I’m glad you reached out and I”m happy to help. Before providing specific advice, I’d like to learn more about your situation with the GMAT. 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, verbal, and IR scores, as well as how you were feeling while taking the tests. Also, please tell me where these tests came from (ex: mba.com).

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

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?

5) How many hours a day, on average, can you study between now and your next GMAT?

Hi Pallavi0102,

Timing problem is mainly because of the “process” you follow to solve a GMAT question. When you follow an inefficient process to solve a question, you will either take more time to solve it or answer it in correctly. To improve on it, it is important that you use effective processes. How do you approach questions in SC and CR? Do you use meaning-based approach in SC and pre-thinking in CR?

    • Dheeraj (730) mastered "methodical approach" (3-step process in SC, Pre-thinking in CR, reading strategies in RC) and scored a V38. He compares the process centric approach to Leonardo's art. Click here to read his de-brief

    • Bhavya improved from a 570(V20) to 730 (V41) in 3 months. Learn how she leveraged “meaning in SC” “Pre-thinking in CR” and “RC reading strategies” to achieve this feat. Click here to watch her interview.

Learn Meaning based approach in a webinar on 4th August

We are conducting a free webinar on 4th August. Register here and reserve your spot to learn the meaning-based approach to solve SC questions.

Learn Pre-thinking approach to solve CR questions

We have over 25+ videos and 350+ practice questions in our Free Trial. I am sharing direct links to some of the lessons for your convenience, for more lessons you will have to sign-up for the Free Trial.

Hope this helps!

Regards,
Aditee
