Hi grv343,

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 materials have you used?
3) How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for each)?

Goals:
4) What is your overall 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?

Hi grv343,

To start, a 750 is just about the 99th percentile, meaning that 99% of Test Takers never score that high (regardless of how long they study or the number of times that they take the GMAT). By definition, that makes that score goal quite challenging. Thankfully, NO Business School in the world requires a score that high, so it's important to remember that the score that you "want" and the score that you "need" are almost certainly NOT the same score.

Assuming that this 530 practice CAT score is relatively recent (and accurate) - and that you want to score 700+ on the GMAT - then you will have to make significant improvements to how you handle BOTH the Quant and Verbal sections to hit that score goal. That work will likely take at least another 3 months of consistent, guided study though, so you might need to push back your Test Date. While the OG Books are great sources for practice questions, they were not designed to teach you Tactics, patterns or the little 'secrets' to the GMAT, so you would likely find it beneficial to invest in a GMAT Course of some type (either Guided Self-Study or instructor-led).

1) When did you take this last CAT?
2) Going forward, how many hours do you think you can consistently study each week?

Hi grv343,

When it comes to studying for the GMAT, there are a variety of different options. Most GMAT Companies offer some type of free materials (practice problems, Trial Accounts, videos, etc.) that you can use to 'test out' a product before you buy it. We have a variety of those resources at our website (www.empowergmat.com). I suggest that you take advantage of all of them then choose the one that best matches your personality, timeline and budget.

If you have any additional questions, then just let me know.

Hi grv343,

Taking another GMAT PREP course may help you solidify your concepts. In my opinion E-gmat verbal online or the e-gmat verbal live are both amazing courses that can really help you improve your scores.

However, given how close your GMAT date is, I personally do not think one should focus on too many different things on the final leg of their GMAT Preparation. It may be nice to give a couple of mocks (the official ones) and work on your weaknesses If you want to improve on any individual area such as Sentence Correction, you may subscribe to the individual SC course as you can finish the whole course in 10 days (with proper dedication). If however you are only looking to indentify and improve on your weak areas, I would encourage you to purchase the e-gmat scholaranium (included in both the courses mentioned above). It is without a doubt, one of the best practice tools for verbal and will indeed help you on the final leg of your preparations.

Hope this helps. All the best.
