i took a mock test and got a 560~570 before studying. I did the worst in the SC part of verbal. After studying for a week of almost exclusively SC, i took a mock on the GMAT site and got 670, although i feel i may have gotten lucky and would put myself at about 650, with verbal still my weakest link. I would like to push to above 700 since my GPA is pretty bad. What prep course would you guys recommend for emphasis on verbal? I only have about 5 weeks to study. Thanks!

Hi! Since you mention SC as your specific area of concern, thought I would mention that our sentence correction 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.

Hi apwang,

From what you describe, it sounds like you've been studying for just a couple of weeks. Is that correct? 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 (including 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

Hey apwang

Welcome to GMATClub.

IMO to improve in SC, you must get better at understanding the underlying concepts that
are being tested. The Manhattan SC Strategy guide is a good starting point as it gives you
a good idea about the rules tested. The theory if then followed by practice lesson which will

In addiiton to this, these are some links where you can find some information regarding SC
https://gmatclub.com/forum/sc-verbal-qu ... 95439.html
https://gmatclub.com/forum/sentence-cor ... 41821.html (From Magoosh)
https://gmatclub.com/forum/e-gmat-s-all ... 44985.html (From eGMAT)
https://gmatclub.com/forum/compiled-thu ... 54538.html (Ron Purewal's links)

Alternatively, you could take a free trial of the various courses offered and then take a call
about which course you intend to use in order to prepare yourself better for SC.

For practice, you can visit the following link

Hope this helps!

Hi apwang,

For verbal, especially SC I would highly encourage you to consider e-gmat verbal online or the e-gmat verbal live course. They are both amazing courses especially designed for non-natives. They offer almost 25% of their courses for free so you can try out their free trial to decide which one you want to go for. Plus the e-gmat Scholaranium which is included in both the courses is one of the best verbal practice tools in the market. You can easily track your progress in that you can identify your strengths and analyze and improve on your weak areas.

Further taking multiple mocks might help. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

Further another advantage of taking many mocks is to build up your stamina. Apart from the GMATPREP tests, taking practise tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

Hope this helps. All the best.
