Hi Everyone

I have been answering few mock tests and have found that my performance in RC is bad and is not improving.
This bad performance in RC is one of the major factors responsible for a low Verbal score in mock tests.
My accuracy is less than 50% in RC.

Any help in improving the same will be appreciated.

I will be answering the official test in 10 days.

Thanks

Hi 0akshay0,

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 study 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) What is your goal score?
5) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
6) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

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

Thanks for the quick reply EMPOWERgmatRichC

1) How long have you studied?
I have been studying for around 4 months (around 2 to 3 hours a day asI also work as UI dev - a 9 to 6 job).
But to be specific I have studied RC for around 2-3 weeks

2) What study materials have you used?
Nothing apart from the megathread about RC on gmatclub and GMATprepnow youtube videos.

3) How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for each)?
i have been scoring around 670(Q48,V33) - 680(Q48,V35)

4) What is your goal score?
I want to score 700+

5) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
I want to apply to Business schools during Round I. But if I can improve my score and if there is no much difference if I apply during round I or round II (need help in this case) then I am okay with applying for round II as well.


Thanks

Hi 0akshay0,

You didn't quite answer each of my questions, so I'm going to phrase them a bit differently:

Studies:
1) What study materials have you used over the last 4 months?
2) How have you scored on EACH of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for each)? I need to know the exact result of each CAT you've taken over the last 4 months, so that we can see if there are any patterns and whether you're "stuck" at this score level or not.

Rich
