Dear All,

I have 30 days left for my D day. I am currently scoring consistently 680(M48-49, V33-34) in my GMat Prep and Kaplan tests (6 in all) without repeat questions. I have already referred following sources:

OG11-12,
Online forums (few times),
Manhattan SC, CR & RC guides
1000 series – around 200 questions of each

I am still lacking in Verbal section and there is a scope of improvement. I am looking for a score of 730-750. I am currently getting 12-16 Qs wrong in verbal and scoring the expected levels would mean getting additional 6-9 questions right. Can anybody provide any additional insight on the tests strategy or prep so that I can reach my target score on D day (24 June 2010).

One more thing, we have been reading about getting all rights in first 10-15 Qs in both sections. I think it is very true because I have been noting that when I make mistakes in first 10 Qs my scores have dropped drastically as against when I have scored all of them correct.

More details on the verbal score? Are you better or weaker in any of the verbal sections (RC, CR, SC)?

I heard Kaplan scores are stingy. Did you take that into account?

I want to know, how to improve my scores from the current 680 to say 750 on D day. A plan in next 28-29 days that would help me to improve my verbal score from getting additional 6-8 Qs right. Please help.
