Hi,

I am non native test taker struggling with Verbal section as everyone. My exam is scheduled for next month and i want to score around 38-39 in verbal for a decent overall score and to get into one of my dream schools.

I am able to score 49-51 in quant but my Verbal is hovering around 32-36. And since there is huge swing in the score i am not sure if 36 is a fluke or i am actually improving.

I need a study plan for next 20 days which can help me improve my score in Verbal. Study material, plans all are appreciated.

Thanks

Do you know what drags you down most, CR, RC or SC. Verbal is not as easy for natives as many may think (not saying you think so). However, it can be overcome by thorough study of concepts behind verbal. For CR, every type of question has its own approach and it can simplify things. Only with a good understanding of concepts and healthy practice can you overcome that level. SC may be another aspect that would probably need more time than say RC because there is a lot of stuff to cover. You can cover basics but then again, deep down, everything needs a thorough revision with examples. If you can list down the courses and materials you have access to, experts can probably guide you better.
