During my initial gmat mocks i scored around 600(QA47 VA24). I know that my VA score needs to be improved but i have no clue as to where to begin. My target is around 660+ in 2.5 weeks.
Is it possible for a 660+ score within 2.5 weeks? Moreover how to go about with my studies further. Kindly help.
Thanks.

Hello satty12,

Score 600 is a pretty good start. I would suggest to go over mgmat guide to start with.

For verbal:
SC: mgmat SC is pretty good. read the theory that is grammar rules and then practise the questions from OG
CR : Powerscore bible for CR has pretty good reviews. If you have less time in hand read the basics of CR from mgmat CR book and then practice from OG.
RC: Start solving 2 passages daily from OG and slowly you will improve in RC. For basic theory of type of questions refer to some RC book (i am not sure but try mgmat RC book or RC details that people posted on gmatclub)

For Quant:
As you are already at Q47, try to find your weak topics and practice questions from gmatclub and OG.

Also if you have taken subscription of some other online course you can refer it for Verbal theory as well. Most important step in preparation is practing questions from OG.

Hope the details help. Let me know if you have further questions.

All the best :)

Hi satty12,

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 so far?
3) How have you scored on EACH of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?
4) Did you take the FULL CAT each time (with the Essay and IR sections)?

Goals:
5) What is your exact Test Date?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

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

Hi satty12,

2.5 weeks is a bit tight but you can surely try. It's a good thing you have taken GMATPREP once. You now know your weeknesses and can work on them. I would recommend focus on verbal as your Quant seems decent. You should consider E-gmat. E-gmat verbal online or the e-gmat verbal live are both amazing courses that can really help you improve your scores.

However, given how close your GMAT date is, I personally do not think one should adopt any new method on the final leg of their GMAT Preparation. It may be nice to give a couple of mocks (the official ones) and work on your weaknesses, but trying something new might not work in anyone’s favour. However if you want to improve on any individual area such as Sentence Correction, you may subscribe to the individual SC course as you can finish the whole course in 10 days (with proper dedication). If however you are only looking to indentify and improve on your weak areas, I would encourage you to purchase the e-gmat scholaranium. It is without a doubt, one of the best practice tools for verbal and will indeed help you on the final leg of your preparations.

Hope this helps. All the best.
