Hi! All,

Should I hire a private tutor on verbal? Target Gmat 680+.

My test date is 10/21. I know it's also kind of late for applying schools. I am hoping that I can finish my application within 2 months by end of Dec.

My test prep results:

Gmat Prep 1:610 Q47 V28
Gmat Prep 2:610 Q44 V31

I didn't revise all math topics and I am quite confident that I can push it to 48+.

I am very frustrated on my verbal.
My CR & RC are OK but I am extremely weak on SC.

Pls giv eme some advices. I am not English native but I know many non natives scored high.

Could you give me some lights?

Thanks & regards,

It probably is worth hiring a tutor for verbal and English in general, which will help your AWA score too, not to mention your application essays! I would do it.

ahfei,
You can hire a private tutor if you do not feel confident. But remember in the end you have to do your home work. For SC read the Manhattan SC diligently and do all questions from OG-11. For critical reasoning read Powerscore CR bible which will help you a lot. And for RC you have to practice, practice and practice.

One thing I'd like to point out is that when I first took the GMATPrep tests, I did horribly on the V section (36 followed by a 28!!!!!). I proceeded to examine the mistakes and the nature of the questions, and I realized that the GMATPrep was testing slightly different abilities than the MGMAT CAT's (the material was using heavily). The key is to not be molded into specific approaches or strategies when attacking these questions in general. I'd recommend you to take the test again (uninstall, delete the test files, then reinstall) after going over your errors. If the scores don't improve, then additional help might be desirable. =)

Hi! All,

I bought the manhanttan SC and will try to work hard on it and see the result.

if I didn't see any improvement, I may need to consider a private tutor.

I live in Orange County , CA. If you know any good tutor, could you refer to me?

Thank you very much for all yr advice.
