How to increase Verbal score.  [#permalink]

Hi everyone,

I am Aarti from Delhi. I have given my Gmat once in the month of April and have scored 590. However, I used to constantly score 660 or 670 in my mock tests : be it Manhattan, Kaplan or Gmat official for that matter.

Well, I will not beat around the bush. From the day of my exam I could figure out my weakness, which is nothing but READING COMPREHENSION. Infact, I had a panic stroke during the exam that I ruined it entirely.

I wish to write my Gmat again by August end maximum. And for that I must improve my reading comprehension for that matter and them the logics and tricks ( which I have none ).

After considering all the options available out there, I have shortlisted POWERSCORE LSAT RC book, EGMAT online course or TOP ONE PERCENT ONLINE course.

Not to forget my split was V23 and Q49 ( I could have scored 50, if I had not missed the last two questions).

I need to build up my score in Verbal. I am not an avid reader. I have apparently hated history throughout my life.
I need serious recommendations and suggestions that what can be worth investigating money and time, for improving my verbal score ofcourse within a span of 2 months.

I am looking forward to hearing from the experts and experienced members of the GNAT club.

Thanks & Regards,
Aarti Gupta :)

Mine is a similar case. I too constantly scored in lower 600s on mock, but on real gmat i scored 580.After much introspection, i realized what happened. It was when the mind was tired,when i was getting constantly bombarded with new questions, when the time was ticking like a time bomb and when panick had struck for some reason, the brain stopped thinking effectively. On the contray,in ir i scored 7 out of 8 something i had never done earlier. The reason behind this was that i had written a big THINK on my note pad to remind myself to constantly think effectively. But by the time of verbal,i completely forgot this strategy and thereby forgetting every other strategy.
So for the next time i plan to remind my brain to keep awake and think. Let the thinking not get blocked as in a traffic jam. I think that will pay off.

Improving verbal can be tricky -- particularly if your weakness is in reading comprehension. While reading is a lifelong skill, there are small things you can do to see a big improvement in a short period of time. One is to get into the habit of identifying and making sense of key transition words -- therefore, additionally, moreover, as a result, for example, etc....

Take a look at this reading passage walkthrough and see if it helps:

improving RC needs a lot of through reading of various texts from various sources.
in order of difficulty and the time taken to improve the order of the sections in ascending order is
1 sentence correction
2 critical reasoning
3 reading comprehension

I personally think that e-gmat is proably the best and the cheapest option available for improving your verbal scores
