Strategy for CR
1. Read the statement
2. Make a mind map.
3. Read the question.
4. Eliminate obvious wrong options
5. Among 2 close options use the negation test as taught by egmat

I just loved the way you have described your prep and your strategy in details. Many congratulations.

I took GMAT a week back and scored worst 560 Q47, V20. I was expecting around 670. I have never scored anything less than 650-700 in my mocks with 49+ in quant and around 33 in verbal. Now I am on it again and all set to put in more effort. I have around 2 months of time and will take GMAT again in first week of Jan.

I really liked your post and I am going to bookmark it and use it a guide often.
I took e-gmat scholarium just 2 week before my test. But this time I'm going to use it to the fullest. Can you share how you studied fro e-gmat verbal course plus scholarium? And which e-gmat verbal course did you buy?
Since, I scored so less in verbal I think I need to address my basics as well. For which I initially used, Power score guide and SC Grail. These books have enough theory but less application questions. Which I think would be there in e-gmat course.

So, if you can guide me a little about your experience it would be great.

Thanks! And all the very best for admissions.

akanksha.setiya Thank you for your wishes. I am sure you would be able to achieve your target score.

Use egmat concept files and especially the articles to build your concepts. The explanations given by the E-GMAT team for every question are exceptional. I would say attempt all the official questions and go through the explanations given by egmat experts. Moreover, scholarinium is a great tool to use especially for hard questions. While attempting the questions don't just focus on the right answers but see the answers explanations as well. The discussion forum in scholarinium should be used to get a better understanding.

AvinashN I would say GMAT official tests are the best for the overall test experience. For sectional mocks specially for quants, GMATClub tests beats all.

pairakesh10, No , I don't work for a test prep company. One of my mentors was looking for an intern and asked for some help regarding the same, so I posted the opening on various platforms. :)

Man, how is it possible to score above 49 in Quant :( I barely survive level 600 questions.
Glad to hear that you nailed it once and forever

I will suggest you to improve on your DS skills. I think they are not up to par. Do try out Math Revolution. Their DS strategy is good.

Hey akanksha.setiya,
I get tensed when I see these kind of posts. Because presently I m also scoring around v33-32, but as you mentioned that even after scoring that level consistently you ended up with v20, and I fear that same would happen with me. Did you got to understand what was the exact reason behind that v20?? Bdw which test series you used first time???
Thanks....I would appreciate your reply.
