Hi everyone,

Before I began studying for the second time I took a GMATPrep practice test and got a 680 Q43 V40. I then spent the next month studying using the following resources:
  • Magoosh GMAT videos
  • Took an inperson MGMAT class where I learned all verbal strategies
  • Completed all Hard Magoosh Sentence Correction problems
  • Completed all sentence correction OG problems
  • Completed three additional practice tests

The scores I received on the practice tests are as follows:
  • 680 Q47 V37
  • 710 Q48 V39
  • 670 Q49 V32 (not quite sure what happened here)

After taking the exam on 6/9 I scored 700 Q47 V39.

I want to attempt to retake the exam to score 720+ and I am wondering what resources I should look into for improving my verbal.

I was planning to purchase the GMAC question pack 1 and was also considering the PowerScore SC book.

Any and all advice is appreciated!

Thanks!

Hey 2ndTimeCharm,

Looks like you used a lot of good resources.

The SC section is the easiest verbal section to make improvements on. Once you understand how to think and approach this question type, there are only so many ways you can be tested. Here at GMAT Pill we developed the 10 core frameworks which detail the 10 ways to approach GMAT sentence corrections.

Here is a sample video detailing one of the core frameworks: http://www.gmatpill.com/gmat-practice-t ... stion/2184

Best of luck - we are here to help.

You don't need more resources; what you have is more than sufficient.

What is the cause of the majority of your mistakes in SC?

Is it okay for me to take only free GMAT resources? I do not have much money to spend, and my goal is to achieve 700 score on GMAT.

Well, after reading quite a few debriefs, my impression is that it is doable.
