I am from India
After spending 3 months on online courses with Books I took the GMAT exam today and I want score near about 650 to 700 but ended over disaster score of 370. :cry:

Also after analyzing my score, I found that Time management and proper strategy couldn't help me in a way i want.
1) For IR, I was not able to complete the section on time.
2) For Verbal, I couldn't find, in which way I was going in exam.

Its really Disheartening for me :cry: , I want to give exam as early as possible with full confidence.

Please guide and help me on books selection for better preparation and proper strategy to achieve the score I want

vyas65,

That is a result far from target. I really hope you can find the improvement you're looking for, if indeed business school and GMAT are definitely your career goals. In terms of not knowing what to do for IR and Verbal, you really need to understand the structure of arguments and the structure of communication. These are things not taught well in school. I'd encourage you to pick one section -- for example, reading comprehension -- and try some resources. See if they even have the slightest chance of changing your future score.

http://www.gmatpill.com/gmatpill-releas ... -guide-rc/

Reading comprehension is one of those universal areas. It's the basic building blocks for reading which you have to do all the time in business. You read articles, you research, you read trends of competitors and the future. You need to read. So if you don't have a good reading strategy, you should check the above link regardless of whether you take the GMAT again.

That said, if you start seeing signs of improvement, try some of the other resources on GMAT Pill. There are few free resources and PDFs for you to get started - browse around and do your research. But the above link is a good starting point.

Hope that helps.

I went through a similar experience (with scaled scores as following: IR:1, Q:22, V:19) and I have no idea where to begin. I wish if someone could at least give a direction or a set of topics that I could practice that would help me raise my score by a minimum of 150-200 points.

I need some expert advice here, I have just 2 months time in hand.

Hi abir.caza,

To start, you would likely find it useful to start your own thread (instead of piggy-backing on this old thread). In addition, it would help if you could provide more information about how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
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,
Rich

Hi abir.caza,

2 months may be enough to improve your score. It’s a good thing you have taken your GMAT once. You now know your weaknesses and work on them. If you are willing to study dedicatedly for 4 months, you are sure to achieve your goal. I believe you may benefit from taking a GMATPREP course. If you are willing, there are some great GMAT prep companies that can help you with your preparation.

In order to make an informed decision I would highly encourage you to go to their websites and try on their free trial and decide for yourself which one do you like better. You try out free access to EmpowerGMAT, Magoosh and Optimus Prep as they have great reviews on GMATCLUB.

Also for verbal, I would highly encourage you to consider e-gmat verbal online or the e-gmat verbal live course. They are both amazing courses especially designed for non-natives. They offer almost 25% of their courses for free so you can try out their free trial to decide which one you want to go for. Plus the e-gmat Scholaranium which is included in both the courses is one of the best verbal practice tools in the market. You can easily track your progress in that you can identify your strengths and analyze and improve on your weak areas.

You can also try out the MGMAT guides they are phenomenal and cover the entire syllabus really well. MGMAT foundation of GMAT Quant anf foundation of GMAT verbal will particularly help you solidify your base. I must add that if you are particularly looking to discover and improve on your weak areas in Quant; a subscription to GMATCLUB tests is the best way to do that. They are indeed phenomenal and will not only pinpoint your weak areas but also help you improve on them.

Further taking multiple mocks might help. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

Further another advantage of taking many mocks is to build up your stamina. Apart from the GMATPREP tests, taking practise tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

I would also encourage you to purchase the latest version of OG and the verbal review for some great additional practice. Here is a link that will help you with your decision.

https://gmatclub.com/forum/best-gmat-ve ... 68383.html

Lastly, you can check out a very interesting article by Mike McGarry from Magoosh detailing a 3 month study plan

https://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/3-month-g ... -students/. You will find it very helpful as it gives out a study plan as per your needs.

Hope this helps. All the best.
