Need Urgent HELP in improving VERBAL score [#permalink]

Hi,

I am in urgent need of suggestions or advises. I have my GMAT exam coming in exactly 2 weeks from now. I have been preparing for quite sometime now and was very poor in Verbal when I started. This will be my second attempt as in the first attempt my verbal score was poor(V27).

I started studying from MGMAT books and then moved to OG questions. For the past couple of months I have been studying regularly. I have been giving MGMAT exams and started scoring (V33-V37). However then I decided to take GMATPrep exam and when I saw my Verbal score I was heart broken. I scored V27. Even after regulary studying and getting those earlier scores, I performed so badly.

Now I am clueless as to how to proceed with just 2 weeks left and how to improve my Verbal GMAT score.

Any suggestions or advice. I am feeling really disappointed now.

First of all, don't lose hope! A single low score does not necessarily represent your capabilities. You should take another GMATPrep practice exam (or two) before test day, so you will have more data points to see how you are doing.

That said, you are appropriately concerned about your performance and should look for possible deficiencies. How was your timing? Why did you miss questions - silly mistakes or questions over your head? Do you have any known weak spots (SC, CR or RC)?

Keep up the practice with the OG and REVIEW heavily so you can see why you are getting things wrong (and right!). Focus on your weak spots. Take more practice exams to get better data on your real ability level.

At this point, perhaps you should consider only re-doing the OG problems that you've studied and done before. Be honest with the amount of time you give yourself, and see whether you have the same oversights as when you first started. I myself had studied a long time yet didn't gain much understanding on verbal until I re-did a lot of the OG problems I got wrong. After all, you now see that a huge weakness exists in MGMAT verbal books in that all the examples are overly simplified and perfect English. Whereas in OG you have to make trade-offs among each of the five answer choices. I hope this helps.

Hi,

Thanks for replying. I will start reviewing all the questions that I have answered incorrectly till date and will review all those till the exam day which is in just about two weeks.

The timing was almost fine as for the last two I had 2 - 2.5 mins approx.

Really Thanks a lot for the suggestions. I will start with the OG and verbal review.
