Hi everybody,
I'm a non-native speaker of English, and I just spent 3 weeks to prepare for GMAT test.(read 8 manhattangmat books, OG Quant, OG Verbal- CR + SC)
First, I kept imagining that the verbal section will be the same as the reading test in IELTS, or in Toelft, so I spent 2 weeks for Quant. In the last week, I realized I was wrong, the verbal section is too difficult for me. One of the reasons why I feel this exam is very difficult, because my vocabulary is not good.
When I tried to do exam at home, I often got below 500, Quant often between 39-48, and Verbal always below 15 :lol:
I plan to test again in a month, so I should spend the whole time in practice on some website such as gmatclub or gmatpill, and I also intend to improve vocabulary by reading novels (if I have time) as an advice that I read on gmatclub
Every day, I can spend four to five hours for studying. My goal just only is 550-600.
Can anyone give me any more advices ?

Thank you

Hi there,

Firstly, it is a 'Share the GMAT experience'. You could have elaborated what was your experience with the real thing(GMAT).For instance , what things you messed up in the REAL GMAT.

Secondly, AIM High , if you could manage Q48 then try to get V30, which I think is moderately tough.

Thirdly, though reading novels might help you in RC, verbal in GMAT is more of logic rather than content. You can logically eliminate most of the choices in both SC and CR.

Hope that helps !

Rgds,
TGC!
