Today i sat for the first ever GMAT paper of my life and scores were not as expected.

GMAT Total = 590
V 26
Q 45.

This was after 6 months of preparation ( though real prep was in last two months).

Please guide me for Verbal section, In GMAT Pre test i scored always V29 and V30 but today in GMAT Test it was pathetic.

I need to work hard on Sentence correction and RC's. Can any one suggest a good resource to start from the basic. I am planning to give the test again in January 2019. My aim is to score at least 700.

Also please let me know is it doable or its just dream number to hope for.

Hey mohitdel1984

Welcome to GMATClub.

The first step, IMO, will be to get an ESR for this attempt. This should help
clear out a few things such as the topics which need more attention. Once
you have the ESR, you will know where to spend the maximum time. That
said, in order to improve your aptitude when it comes to the problem areas
as per you - for SC, you should re-do the Manhattan Strategy guide as far
as concepts are concerned. Once, you are well versed with the concepts,
you should start by working on questions from the following thread:
https://gmatclub.com/forum/sentence-cor ... 29750.html

In addition to this, you should use the SC and RC butler thread on a regular
basis. Here, you will see both quality questions and quality explanations and

Hope that helps.

Hi! Take a look into PowerScore books. CR bible helped me a lot with CR, now I consider to read its bibles for RC and maybe for SC. You can check few chapters with Amazon kindle preview.

Hi mohitdel1984,

Welcome to GMATCLUB! 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.
