Hi,

I have started preparing for GMAT for past 2 weeks. I have the following resources available with me :

1) OG review
2) OG verbal & quants book
3) Manhattan sentence correction
4) Powerscore critical bible
5) Magoosh lessons & practice
6) Manhattan Quants book

Though i prepare very hard 5-6 hours a day , I couldnt see any improvement when i attend SC part & Critical Reasoning in OG.
I could just answer 30-40% of them right.

I feel comfortable with Quants. But gotta improve Verbal lot. I am aiming to score 700 in another 2 months. Please suggest me good ideas .

Thanks

Hey,

I would suggest you to stick to the basics for both SC and CR. Only practice will help. Also, for most of the OG questions, there is an explanation here on forum. Read all the explanations even if you have answered the question correctly.

Apart from above,for SC, watch all the videos of Thursday's with Ron. They are just amazing.

Finally, if money is not an issue, you can try e-gmat course. They are pretty good for non-natives. You will be able to see the difference. Saying this from my own experience.

All the best!!

+1 Kudos if it helps.

Hi Akshaya,

Since you've put in a couple of weeks of study already, have you taken any FULL-LENGTH practice CAT Tests yet? If not, then you should plan to take one soon (perhaps this weekend) - you can download 2 for free from www.mba.com (and they come with some additional practice materials). That score will give us a good sense of your natural strengths and weaknesses and will help provide a basis for comparison as you continue to study. A FULL CAT takes about 4 hours to complete, so make sure that you've set aside enough time to take it in one sitting. Once you have those scores, you should report back here and we can come up with a study plan.

I'd like to know a bit more about your timeline and goals:
1) Do you have your Official GMAT scheduled yet?
2) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
3) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
