Please help me improve my GMAT score. I am targeting a score of 680-700 but have not been to score in the actual GMAT.
In my last attempt I scored Q36 V17. Pathetic score. Have been preparing for GMAT for the past 5 months. Majorly I am struggling in Verbal specially in RC and SC. CR is manageable but I end up spending a lot of time on one question. Need help with Quant also. I have prepared with individual tutors for both Quant and Verbal, but I guess it has not worked very well.

I am currently working in a consulting role in KPMG and I need to pursue MBA anyhow to climb up the hierarchy ladder.

For Quant you must consider Gmat club tests, it will definitely help to improve your score to around 50. But even if you score less in the tests, make sure to go through the explanations thoroughly, as there are many subtle concepts explained and even the questions are high quality.
For Verbal, refer to MGMAT books, as they are very good. Understand all concepts of SC as they are really important.
Try to solve chunks of questions in allotted time.

Hi contact.arjunkumar,

Since this is your 3rd attempt at the GMAT, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How have you scored on each of your GMATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for each)?
2) How long have you studied for each attempt at the GMAT?
3) What study materials have you used so far?

Goals:
4) What is your goal score?
5) When are you planning to retake the GMAT?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

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

contact.arjunkumar,

You can do it! Keep working! When you took the test did you run into problems with timing? If so, your score could have dropped below your ability level. I would recommend grabbing the ManhattanPrep Quant and Verbal books, and even the foundational books if you want to work on the basics more. They're comprehensive and should get you to the 600s if you get the rules and basics down. From there I would suggest watching the Thursday with Ron videos. They have helped me a lot in my journey and should help speed up your timing on Verbal. Hope this helps and keep at it!
