Hi everyone,

I just did my first GMAT exam and scored a 690 with a 38V, 46Q, 8 IR, N/A AWA. I was really hoping for a 700+ score. :x

For Verbal, I can dominate the CR and RC sections with relative ease, but SC seems to be consistently getting me down. I have in fact improved a lot, in my first mock I had a 32 V and 46Q (660), in my second mock a week later that was up to 42V and 46Q (710).

I am guessing on the exam nerves did get to me and I made silly mistakes in the first ten questions on SC, but I was really hoping for some advice to reliably improve on what seems to be a wishy-washy section for me.

So far I have been using MGMAT SC, a few notes by users on this web-page, egmat's SC webinar (REALLY REALLY helpful) and the OG book.

Any help advice is immensely appreciated. I feel like a problem with MGMAT's SC book is the huge amount of jargon, which they stress you don't need to know (but evidently to understand the book and its' explanations you pretty much do.)

Is there any course or book that get's through an explanation without inserting "subjunctive adverbial noun phrase modifying preposition" in the same sentence? :sick: Because I don't know what they mean, and unless it's absolutely necessary I really do not want to learn what they mean.

My 2 cents would be to improve quant as it is more easy and more formula based. Q46 can be easily pushed up to a Q49 by a small effort and that can get your 720.

For verbal i followed what ever you mentioned. I also learned a lot of concepts from 700 800 SC quide from Gmatclub. Verbal was tough for me so i ensured i aced quant and let verbal take a beat. I managed V41.

Thats my feedback
