I have scheduled my test on September 11th, and my target is at least 650. But currently my results from practice tests are around 600. I really struggle with Verbal, since I'm not really good with logic. Anyone could provide some advices or strategies so I can achieve my target? Thanks a lot :D

Hi thanhtam269,

First things first, you will have to clarify in which test are you scoring around 600?
Because if it is not a GMATPrep test, then you might have to take one to know
where exactly you stand.

Take a GMATPrep test about 8 days before and if you aren't near your goal score,
you might want to postpone it.

Also, you might want to review your concepts in case you decide to take the test.

For Quant Review
Quantitative Mega Thread: https://gmatclub.com/forum/ultimate-gma ... 44512.html
GMATClub Math book : https://gmatclub.com/forum/gmat-math-bo ... 30609.html

For Verbal my advice to you would be to stick to official sources
CR - Official questions : https://gmatclub.com/forum/the-most-com ... l#p1129824
SC - Official questions : https://gmatclub.com/forum/the-most-com ... l#p1129819
RC - Official questions : https://gmatclub.com/forum/the-most-com ... l#p1129820

Hope this helps!

Hi thanhtam269,

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 materials have you used?
3) How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for each)?

Goals:
4) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
5) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

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

Don't discount quant completely. At 600, you can probably improve both quant and verbal.

All the best for the exam!

a. Please provide your score in QA and VA separately.
b. In verbal try to find out the section where you are loosing marks, this is very important to improve in VA section.
c. if you are loosing more marks in Critical reasoning, it is the best possible situation for you to improve. Try to read the concepts from MGMAT again and start solving 10 questions a day on GmatClub. Read the solutions provided by different people and try a critical approach towards others. Slowly you will start improving in CR.
d. Also don't underestimate quant section. You can easily improve a lot in this section.
