Hello everyone,

I started Gmat about 2.5 months ago. I first took the Gmat Prep I without studying or reviewing anything, i got 460 (Q44, V12). And after 2,5 months of self-studying i recently took the Gmatprep II and got 580 ( Q48, V22). I spent just only 3 weeks on Quant and the rest on Verbal. I will sit for the exam next month, because my deadline for MS Fall 2018 is mid Feb 2018. With that being said, i am not worry about Quant, but will spend 1 hour/ day studying and reviewing Quant. I need your advice on improving Verbal in 1 month. I do pretty well on SC, but struggle a lot in CR and RC simply because i did not understand the overall meaning. For Verbal, I only did OG 13th once but will do 2nd Verbal Review and review those materials twice- 3 times and will do some more Verbal questions from diferrent OG 16,17,18,materials. I know that practice a lot makes perfect and definitely helps me to improve my verbal score, but I also want to know some advice, tips, strategies on CR, RC to improve in 1 month.

My goal universities require GMAT 500-550 but i aim 620-650 to strengthen my application to be a strong candidate for graduate assistantships. Thank you for reading this and i would be so grateful if you could drop me some advice below. Thank you so much.

Dear trjomara,

I'm happy to respond. :-)

First of all, here are some free GMAT Idiom Flashcards.

Here's a three-month study schedule for someone strong in math but struggling in verbal.

If you are really ambitious to improve your verbal, then over and above whatever GMAT-specific studying you do, I would recommend developing a daily habit of reading. See:
How to Improve Your GMAT Verbal Score

Finally, I will recommend Magoosh. We have a large library of video lessons on the GMAT Verbal section. Here's a free lesson:
The Missing Verb Mistake
Here's a free CR question:
Apologizing to Crime Victims
Here's a free SC question:
The publication of Joyce's Ulysses
When you submit your answer for either one of those questions, the following screen will have a complete video explanation. Each one of Magoosh's 500+ verbal practice questions has its own VE: that sort of immediate feedback, after each and every question, is exactly what you need to make rapid progress.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
Mike :-)
