Beautifulmind

For us to give suggestions on how you could possibly improve, you need to provide more details in your post.

Which courses did you use for GMAT?
Which mock tests did you take?
Were they time or untimed?
Which were the areas where you encountered the most difficulty during the exam - was it a timing issue or of understanding the problem?

Details on things such as these would help members to provide you with guidance.

hey Santanu76,
I was down with viral flu, so could'nt reply sooner..
I didnt join any course. I took gmat manhattan test and they all are timed. I prepared from gmatmanhattan for sentence correction, and for everything else i used offical guide and kaplan guide..
CR is my weakest point but in RCs too i never get every question right in the same passage. I dont have any problem in quants..infact i dint prepare much for quants at all for any attempt i took.

Hi beautifulmind!

Looks like verbal has been your achilles heel... you've scored 44-48 in quants in all 3 attempts - if you maintain that and improve verbals, you should do much better.

Also, your second GMAT score of 640 looks a pretty decent score, with a good balance between quant and verbal - are you sure you want to retake despite scoring 640? f you want to target 700, you have to maintain quants at 48-49 and ramp up your verbal score to 36-37. That means serious efforts on both - especially verbal.

I suggest you give yourself a good 2-3 months to work real hard with renewed vigor - and sit for GMAT again only when you find your practice scores improving to these levels. It's no use just sitting for another GMAT, hoping for the best, otherwise.

Have you looked at e-GMAT? The feedback from users has been very good and it is targeted at non-native speakers. Try their free material first and take the paid service if you like the free stuff - could help give a structure to your verbal prep.

Have you gone through the SC, CR and RC 600 and 700 level question threads on GMATClub? They contain a wealth of questions and interesting and helpful discussions on how to solve them.

Pls go through the SC guides available on GMATClub, by whiplash, Gayathri and Spidey - I have found them invaluable.

Last but not the least, go to whiplash's profile, download all her verbal guides and documents available in her signature - they are gems.

All the best!
