Hello everyone,

I just took GMAT today and I got 600, Q48 V25. I really focused on the Verbal questions before I had taken it but I was not able to score higher than that on the Verbal assessment.

Taking this into consideration, I'd like to know if you have any tips in order to improve the Verbal Scores, if reading news or doing anything else in the daily life would improve it for the next time I begin to prep for GMAT.

I know that this part of the test is the most difficult for everyone but I really would like to improve this skill for the next time and also for life, since I think it has helped me a lot with English Grammar and Critical thinking of problems.

With a V25, you lost significant points in at least 2 of the 3 major Verbal categories (SC, RC and CR), so if your goal is to score at a much higher level, then you're going to need more than just 'tips' to earn that higher score. You'll need to learn to 'see' (and respond to) the GMAT in new ways. 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 study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for each)?

Goals:
4) What is your goal score?
5) When are you planning to retake the GMAT?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?
