With a score of 580 ( Q 48, V 22 ), I felt its not my best shot and need to put in more efforts to get at least some decent score. Started my Prep on May 11th 2019 and attempted GMAT once again on 630 ( Q 50, V 28 ). I still believe the verbal score needs a lot of improvement and i'm preparing for the same. Will post updates after my retake.....

Hi Pavan,

In another post, you asked for suggestions on good sources of advanced GMAT questions - and while it's understandable why you might be interested in a book of tougher prompts, with a V28, you would have lost significant points in ALL 3 major Verbal categories (RC, SC and CR) - so your immediate issues in the Verbal section are NOT about how you deal with 'advanced' questions. To earn a much higher score in the Verbal section (and thus, overall), you'll need to focus on learning the Tactics, patterns and little 'secrets' to the Verbal section - and all of that needs to come first (before you become overly concerned with how you're handling advanced versions of any of those question types.

Studies:
1) On what dates did you take each of your Official GMATs?
2) How long have you studied in total? Over the last 3 months, many hours have you typically study each week?
3) What study materials have you used over the course of all of your studies?
4) On what dates did you take EACH of your CATs/mocks and how did you score on EACH (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
5) What is your overall goal score?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School and what Schools are you planning to apply to?

You might also choose to purchase the Enhanced Score Report for your most recent Official GMAT. While the ESR doesn’t provide a lot of information, there are usually a few data points that we can use to define what went wrong on Test Day (and what you should work on to score higher). If you purchase the ESR, then I'll be happy to analyze it for you.

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

Great. I am inspired by your perseverance. Now, you just need to concentrate on the Verbal part!

Good luck for the 3rd take!

Hello VANUKURIPAVAN,

Great work on Quant. One Verbal if you need any help let me know.

You can PM me your ESR, we can take a look and suggest some areas of improvement. Around the same lines would like to know how are you planning to improve?
It's important to understand where you went wrong in your last two attempts and maybe have a course correction there.

Ping if you need help.

rgds,
Shree

Wow your Quant is very high, Q50. Keep it up.

For verbal, you can do all newest OG questions. This reflects past-exam questions. You can find many quality questions from this forum
