Guys,
I have been preparing GMAT for more than 3 months. As I am working full time, I am only studying for 10-15 hours per week.
Verbal section is very challenging for me especially reading comprehension. In these 3 months, my quant score has increased from 44 to 48. However, my verbal score stayed at 20. No matter what I do, I am not seeing any improvement in the verbal section. Clearly, I need to change my strategy in preparing verbal.
Here are the books I studied for verbal:
Manhattan guides: Sentence Correction and Reading Comprehension.
PowerScore: Critical Reasoning
OG 12th edition (only half completed so far)
Can anyone give me some suggestions in preparing verbal section? I am trying to find a strategy that works for me. All your help will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you!

You may benefit from my recent post below as you are looking for help on Verbal:
[url]

RC should improve with practice and some strategy on Long Passages. You cannot have the same strategy for both passages. Are you having more inaccuracy in one vs the other? Are you having more difficulty in Inference or the Main Ideas? It is critical to understand your weaknesses and work on them rather than a generic approach.

Try to balance all three sections than working on one section at a time for long duration and ignoring the other.

hth!
