Hi Souvik,

Thanks for such a wonderful explanation. :lol:

Needed a quick clarification : My verbal score has been hovering around 20's (23-28) in the last 2 GMAT preps. However when I have a detailed look at the performance tab my individual scores dont look that bad (CR-42 percentile RC-39 and SC-37). Was too slow and could answer only 25 questions leaving the remaining 16 unattended.
Is the overall drop in verbal score because of not answering the section completely??? Does it fall that drastically? :cry: Assuming that I continue with the same accuracy, will I be able to score above V36 in verbal ; given I complete the entire section. Should my focus now be on improving speed or am I missing fundamentals (which cud be he reason for being slow)?

Attaching the screenshot of the performance.

Excuse me for replying to the post where the basic assumption is to score above V30!

Best-
Amit


Hi Amit989 ,

Always remember that leaving even a single question will punish you very badly.

GMAC spends several dollars to prepare every question and if you leave any question unanswered, you are going to be punished by GMAC.

It is always better to mark a question incorrect than to leave it answered.

Also, to answer your other question, you need to work really hard to complete your whole test on time, else V30+ is extremely difficult.

All the best. :)

Hello Souvik,
I have been studying CR from EGMAT and my verbal score now has reached a 30-32(on Manhattan Mocks). My target is to go up 10 more points. The problem right now is timing. I am taking 3 minutes per CR question. So, I think I need more practice to bring my timing down. I think I have hit my accuracy goal but I need to do the questions within 2 minutes. Right now, I have exhausted all the material I have. Official Guide, GMAT prep and EGMAT questions. Many i did when I was not sure of the correct methods of solving CR Qs and many I did recently, but i definitely cannot use them as i remember the answers. What is your recommendation ? I need may be like a solid 100-200 or more questions with solutions that help me go from a 30 -40. I see a lot of valuable information on GMAT club. Its almost impossible to decide where to start.

Your help will be really appreciated.

PLEASE HELP !! URGENT!!!! SENTENCE CORRECTION
I need to re-write my GMAT before Jan 10, 2018. I scored fairly low on verbal section (28) and am struggling with the the core concepts of Sentence correction. I bought Wiley Gmat official guide 2018 along with Verbal review and Quantitative review books(total 3 books). I also bought Princeton Review Gmat book to learn the tricks and shortcuts. Sentence correction(SC) explanations in GMAT OG makes no sense to me and SC review in Princeton guide is not enough. Could any of you good hearted people please recommend me a guide or book or e-book for Sentence correction as i am consistently doing poor on SC section of verbal section? Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am freaking out. I also bought 7-practice exams through gmatclub.com but doing practice questions wouldn't help much if my understanding of this section is not good. I would like to thank you in advance for any input. Please help.

Hi souvik101990,

Thanks for such a great post.

I sincerely followed your advice and found myself improving from V28 to V39 in MGMAT mock. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed while solving MGMAT & Veritas prep test. In almost all the tests I got more than V36. I don't know what did I do on test day that I got an embarrasing V26. Either I am too dumb to realize that all those scores were out of sheer luck or something peculiar is happening on the D Day not once, twice but four times. Frustrated and depressed with the result, I celebrated my new year by taking a fresh mock, just to gauge my competence, I got V36. I have tried everything, followed all experts' advice but nothing is working out. This is my last and final attempt at GMAT and I don't want to ruin it again. Kindly help me out.

Regards
Manish
