Improving Verbal score! [#permalink]

Hi everyone!

So, basically, since I'm weak in Math and strong in English, I just completely ignored the English portion of the exam. So, I'm getting V39-V40 in my exams. I need to ge a V46 or V45 as I need to pull up my score. My weakness is Sentence Correction.
Any advice? GMAT is a week from now. Which I know is really not any time at all. But I'm pretty okay at English and I think I'll be able to pull up my score in the remaining time.
If you have any questions

Wow, you haven't given yourself much time to make some significant progress So you haven't done ANY preparation on the Verbal section yet?

You'll have to do a fair amount of practice on OG problems. Be sure to follow the timing benchmarks for each problem type as you practice. Use "timed sets' to mimic the experience of the real GMAT. Be sure to review all of your problems (not just those you got wrong).

Best of luck...

Hi Kyle!

Thank you for the reply!
Well, I had worked through all the OG problems in SC and CR. When I saw that I could do them pretty easily, I made the mistake of getting overconfident about my English skills. Learnt my lesson now
Anyway, I just skimmed through the Manhattan SC book. And I'm working my way through Sentence Correction sets, on which I tend to make maximum mistakes. Can you suggest some other books other than the OG?
If I have time, I'll work my way through the Powerscore CR book as well.
Hoping for the best!

And also, how many questions, on an average, am I allowed to get wrong if I want to get V45? Or is there no specific rule which governs this?

With a week to go you don't have time to get through a lot of material. I would recommend going deeper on the MGMAT SC book and doing practice in the OG focusing on the specific grammatical catergories (the SC book has a list of OG problems by type). You really need to understand why you are missing problems so review your OG work thoroughly. Did you also buy the OG verbal supplement?

Due to the adaptive nature of the test most people will miss about the same number of problems. It's not how many you get right or wrong that determines your score, it's the difficulty of those questions you get right or wrong.
