Hello,

Thank you in advance for your time!
I recently gave the GMAT and scored 40 on the Verbal section; however, I believe that I can further improve this score and possibly take it up to 45 or better.

Could you please recommend any strategy or study plan that I should follow? Any particular books that I should add to my study plan for a more advanced understanding of concepts? I also intend on enrolling for the Empower-GMAT course but I'm not sure whether it would suffice.

Any help or guidance would be really appreciated!

Thanks,
Umar

I'd recommend getting ESR - to know which section of verbal to improve.

Hello umar Iqbal

First of all congrats to your very good verbal score. V40 is a really good score. I appreciate your determination to reach V45. At your stage i believe you wouldn't need any books or materials to help in content. Focusing on other aspects of exam such as Strategy , timing and practice would be the key.

I personally follow the study plan in the below given link for my prep. I see improvements in my performance after i started following the plan. You can validate whether it would work for you.

Also follow verbal experts in gmat club if you haven't done yet. One can learn many things from the post the experts post or solutions they provide to problems.

All the best for your preparation

Regards
Raghu
