Hello guys,

I have some problem with the verbal section. Last test I took, I scored V32. However now when I’m taking the GMAT Prep tests, I’m scoring around V25-28. Despite not having studied that much verbal last months (because I only needed to improve my quant (Q50 last Prep tests)), I am still sure that I am at a higher level on the verbal section now than last time I took the test (so it should be around V32-33). So I haven't forgot the knowledge. However, my conclusion is that I have forgot my timing strategy. I think that my time management is what is ruining it for me.

I analysed my last score, and I saw that I actually got 13/18 correct answers in the first half of the verbal section. But in the second half I only managed to get 4/18 (!!!) questions correct. Of course this has to do with my time management, since I rushed at the end. My time management on the Quant section was my problem last time, but I have gotten that under control 100%. But now the problem is with the timing strategy on the verbal section. I am spending too much time in the beginning.

I have read this topic: https://gmatclub.com/forum/timing-strat ... 06035.html. It's really helpful. I think I need to work on the mental part. I'm so eager to get ALL questions correct, so in the beginning of the verbal section, I might spend a couple of minutes on a single CR question. This has to change right? What do I do if I read the CR question, gives it 1,5 minutes and still don't understand it? Move on, right?? (this is the part I need help with the most)

How do you interpret this situation? Thoughts?

Hi Hatethissh,

We last discussed your studies about 10 months ago, so I have a few questions about how you approached the GMAT at that time:

1) Late last year, you noted that you were planning to take the GMAT 2 more times after your first attempt (which was a 550/Q35/V31). Did you end up retaking the GMAT as planned (and if so, then how did you score on each of your other attempts - including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH?)?

2) Assuming that you did take the GMAT more than once, have you taken the Official GMAC practice CATs more than once? Which other 'brands' of practice CATs have you used over the course of your entire studies?

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