I had taken e-GMAT subscription last year in Nov -17 only for Verbal. I had my first GMAT exam on 23 Dec, in which I scored 640. I was unable to utilise much of the eGMAT verbal material and scored V28 on verbal. This time I have pulled up my socks for the better innings. I am planning to give GMAT on 22nd Sept.

I would like to thank e-GMAT for such a clear step by step understanding. Since I liked their Verbal course so much, I purchased their quant course too. With this intent, I would like to seek help from all you experts. I did solve OG diagnostic quizzes, my score is as follows :

- SC -61%
- CR - 57%
- RC - 57%
- Arithmetic - 55%
- Algebra - 63%

My target score is 730-750 and I have more than 1.5 months of time. It will be great if you can guide me through, what should be the approach which can help me excel.
I am working for 5 days (10 am to 7pm) with weekends off.

Thanks in advance

Hi downloadingmat26,

Is there a 'typo' in the numbers you reported? Did you actually earn a Verbal Scaled Score of 18 and an Overall Score of 640?

In April, GMAC made a formal announcement defining some changes that would be taking place to the format of the Official GMAT. These changes primarily impact the overall length of the Exam (meaning the number of questions in the Quant and Verbal sections as well as the amount of time that you’ll have to complete each of those two sections). Have you taken any practice CATs yet in the current, shorter format? If not, then you should plan to take a new CAT (so that we can get a better sense of how you perform under these new conditions). Once you have that Score, you should report back and we can discuss the results.

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

The accuracy figures you mentioned are okay, but they don't really give us a good idea about your strengths and weaknesses. Have you tried identifying the concepts that you are weak at?
