How to take verbal from 34 to 40 ? [#permalink]

Dear All,

I recently gave my third attempt of GMAT and scored 700 (Q-50, V-34, IR-8, AWA-5 ). As I was scoring around 730 in the official practice tests, I am planning to retake GMAT by mid-November to reach my target score of 730+.
Need your suggestions in deciding what material to use and how to best utilize the next two months for a higher score in Verbal.

After my first GMAT attempt in October last year, I realized verbal is my weaker section. Hence, I joined eGMAT's Verbal Live course in mid-may, same time when I re-started my preparation.

Material used:

Official Guide 2016,
Verbal Review - 2,
eGMAT Video Course,
eGMAT Scholaranium
Official Question pack.

I scored between 34 and 40 in all the official practice tests (with the average of 37). Thanks to eGMAT, I don't think I have any conceptual gaps in Verbal. Though not sure how good I am in application of concepts.

I struggle a lot with timing. (Just had 13 mins left for last 10 Qs).
I also don't feel very confident while doing Verbal. Pressure of getting initial questions right get on my nerves and I am very bad in handling that pressure.

In practice tests on a good day I was scoring 39/40. Need to make sure that this score becomes a habit. Kindly suggest what steps I should take. Also, what should I do to take care of timing and speed?

As I have already taken eGMAT's course, should I subscribe to any other online course or should I try and extract more from the current course?
Which extra material will be good to take my preparation to next level?

Will be grateful if someone can help.

Hey Mate,

I was also in a similar situation a couple of months ago.

Try to implement the things I mentioned and you will see great improvement.

All the best.
