Hi,
I have been practicing for GMAT for quite some time now, but my scores are in the range of 45-49 in quant and 28-34 in verbal. However, I wanted to take these scores to the level of 51 in quant and 40 in verbal but i feel OG is not sufficient for these levels. Can some let me know that what kind of ref study material I should use for quant and verbal to reach to these scores?
If any of you have any ref study material then pl mail me on vivek.tripathi78@gmail.com

I think if you're scoring b/w 45-49 on quant, you're probably not ready to move up to 51. 51 is really, really difficult to achieve. A lot of the quant gurus on here aren't even getting 51 on the real thing. I would focus on consistently scoring 49 first. Then try to bump yourself up to consistently 50. Once you're there, then you can try for 51, though I'm not even sure it's worth it...

To do this -- MGMAT and focus on minimizing mistakes. if your scores have that much deviation, it probably means you're making a lot of careless mistakes and you need to concentrate on getting all the basics down. MGMAT books will help.

For verbal, again focus on consistency. If your scores are fluctuating that much, you're nowhere near ready to improve your score. Just focus on scoring consistently on the high end of your range first. Then try to improve your score.

SC - MGMAT should give you all you need.
RC - Read proper English and understand (WSJ, Economist, NYTimes, etc.)

Great advice zoinnk. What do you suggest for people scoring on the lower 40-levels with test date approaching soon

Getting 47 is all about getting the basics down. Go through the MGMAT books and understand every concept and how to use them in a variety of circumstances.

Not to freak you out, but if you're in the low 40s (41-43), it may be difficult to raise your score to 47 really quickly. It can be done, though, if you focus all your efforts on GMAT.

I will do my best zoinnk Thanks for your advice, it made me understand what I am up against

One more question, do the GmatClub tests help people on lower 40s ? I hear they are good for high scorers who want to score higher !!

Thanks

I think it's probably not worth it, honestly. Focus on the gaps in your skills first. The gmatclub tests are more for advanced concepts and tricks.
