Dear all,

I have studied on magoosh, very interesting (not detailed); however i improved from 350 to 530-550. I need to get at least 650. I have one month and half to improve; because of university admission. Could you please help me? I would study hard on MGMAT; would you think it is suitable? my hard topic are: Reading (verbal), very low...and word problem (math). Math generally I rarely get lower than 42..However verbal (SC+Cr Always higher than 28/30 in both) RC is a disaster...10/15... Could you please help me?

Thank you

Hi andreafranci,

READING: When reading is a problem then reading needs to be done. You need to become comfortable with reading. Read 1.5-2 hours every day. here are some sources:
1. Harvard Magazine
2. Newyorker
3. scientificamerican.com
4. The University of Chicago Magazine
5. The Wall Street
6. The Economist

If sources like above are boring then here is the list of good novels to read from:
https://gmatclub.com/forum/books-to-rea ... 76079.html

RC:
for those who are not avid readers, RC is one of the most time taking and complex section to improve on. you need to do 2-3 RCs everyday. You might anything from study in a day but do not miss out on doing 2-3 RCs every single day. That's the key.
Official RCs are amazing. Do all the RCs from OG10/12/13/15/16/17/18 and Verbal Review. Go through the explanations for each answer choice. After doing this you will start understanding how to eliminate the choices. Not only in RC but in entire Verbal POE is MUST. Do not look for the right answer choice, rather do the POE.

Words problems: This you can improve with practice. Look at the silly mistakes. Most of the times we forget what is actually asked. While choosing variable name for rate, choose r instead of x or y.

Have a look at "Word Problems Made Easy", "Work' Word Problems Made Easy", "Distance/Speed/Time' Word Problems Made Easy" and "HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR QUANT SCORE" on the following thread.
https://gmatclub.com/forum/all-you-need ... 40445.html

https://gmatclub.com/forum/ultimate-gma ... 44512.html

SC & CR: if these are your strengths then do not stop practicing them. Do at least couple of questions on these also from official sources and write the TAKEAWAYS.

Most importantly - Do less questions and learn everything possible from those questions. Revise everyday!

Hope this helps you

Hi andreafranci,

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) How do you know that you "need" a 650+?
5) What is your exact Test Date?
6) What are the application deadlines for the Schools that you plan to apply to?

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