Hello, I recently took the GMAT with one month of intermittent prep and got a 620 (Q49, V26). Can anyone please suggest practice materials to enhance verbal scores? I am planning to take the GMAT focus for my second attempt around Mid February.

I improved my verbal score a bit my maintaining error logs(This means to not repeat your mistakes) and reading established newspapers for few mins everyday. IMO almost everyone teaches you the same broad stuff but I like the way GMAT Ninja approaches questions coz he doesn’t complicate stuff. So, if possible and if you haven’t already then go through his entire playlist available on YouTube for Verbal.

Im new to GMAT so I am not the best person to advice.
But personally, these 2 videos on verbal really helped me reframe my approach and I noticed that I was performing better in the Q’s.
At least to say, when I did make a mistake with Verbal, I understood why I was wrong cause Charles is good at calling you out on your mistakes.

Those are short videos though for ease of speed.

If you have purchased actual books from amazon then there will be scratch codes inside each of those books. You can then use those codes to activate the online question bank for 1 year.

Thanks for the response. Yes, I have already purchased these books from Amazon. But haven’t access the code yet. But somebody on the Club is speading this news that we do not have an access to the online ques bank if we puchased it from the Amazon. So, I am little concerned about it.

Maybe you’re being too hard on yourself? Cause I notice my accuracy drops when I dont take care of my mental health.
