Hello Clubs Members,

As I have mentioned above, I took a preliminary GMAC test on the official app and scored 680 (Q49 V34) without any preparation at all. I am aiming for ISB and hope to get a score of about 750 to stand a decent chance of getting a call and subsequent admit. I have around 4 months which I can stretch to 5 at max, if needed be. Following are the materials I am in possession of:

GMAT OG 2018
GMAT Verbal Review 2018
GMAT Quant Review 2018
Manhattan SC
GMATClub Grammar Book

Now looking at my score, I know that Verbal is where I should put my main focus on and try to improve it as much as possible. Kindly advise on what other material I should get as per my study plan and how should I proceed with the preparation?

Help will be much appreciated. Hoping for a quick response.

680 is a great score, and to get a score like that without any preparation is amazing. Here are a few points you can consider while making your study plan:

1. You should work on both quant and verbal. Q49 is 75%, and V34 is 71%. Room for improvement in both.
2. Do a general review of both quant and verbal concepts before you proceed. Try to identify how much of the content you're already reasonably comfortable with.
3. Be ready to take the exam a little earlier than planned. If your practice test scores are good, it might not be a good idea to stretch your preparation.

Hi tush1992, the next logical step would be to find out which areas within Verbal need most of your attention. What is also heartening to know is that you are not looking for any quick-fixes (there aren't any :-) ) and are willing to give it the time it deserves.

If the problem area is Sentence Correction, I would like to highlight that our book Sentence Correction Nirvana is perhaps the only book that offers a score improvement guarantee, and is especially designed for non-native speakers.

After reading the book twice (yes! it's an academic book, and so must be read twice in all seriousness, to reinforce the concepts), you will start looking forward to solving SC questions!

The book is available on Flipkart and Amazon.in. You might want to refer to these sites, to also read testimonials of how readers have benefited.

See here how Mohit, who scored 750 on GMAT, vouches for our book.

If you want to sample a chapter before deciding to go ahead with our book, please PM me your mail-id (along with the chapter that you would like to sample) and I will be happy to send that chapter to you by mail. In addition, the entire Grammar section of the book is also available for free preview at pothi.

Thank you so much for the reply. I am a little new to these GMAT prep terminologies. Just wanted to know what these ("Q49 is 75%, and V34 is 71%") percentages mentioned here represent.
