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
