Hi

How to improve verbal score?

If You are non native speaker of English and looking for verbal focused prep, eGmat is good enough.

According to new pattern, what is the question distribution?

Normally (it may vary upto one question)

Quant

13-14 DS
17-18 PS

Verbal

13-14 SC
13 RC
9-10 CR

Manhattan SC guide VS Egmat? Which one is better?

It depends on a few factors

2. Economical/Price
4. Overall

1. I have no idea in which environment you fell more efficient and effective so can not comment.
2. Egmat is more economical In my point of view
3. Perhaps eGMAT requires more time frame to prepare GMAT if you start your course from 0
4. Overall Egmat is far better as it has artificial intelligent system and practice platform, analytics and much more.

Hope it Helps

Hi ishan95jaiswal,

According to GMAC, the approximate breakdown of the Verbal section is:

Reading Comp 13-14 questions (over 4 passages)
Sentence Corrections 12-13 questions
Critical Reasoning 9-10 question

Your question about how to improve in the Verbal section is a bit 'general.' Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on 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?

There are a lot of things that could go into improving a test taker's score. If you're are just starting your prep, you could take a look at this thread.

Hi ishan95jaiswal,

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.

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.

Hope this helps. All the best.
