Hello everyone,
I am thinking of taking the GMAT again. My previous score was only 400 with 3-month preparation. I'm looking to score around 700 . is it possible to increase my score by 300? Please share your feedback based on your experience and statistics

Hello sdogar12 ... welcome to the community.

Everything is possible with intent . Below would be my high level take :

For Verbal:
1. For RC I would use of the link below to make a habbit to do atleast 2 RC each day and going through the discussions therein.
https://gmatclub.com/forum/project-rc-b ... l#p2110839
https://gmatclub.com/forum/new-project- ... 87783.html
2. For CR .... try to master 1 topic at a time ( 1 golden rule : know why the wrong choice is wrong)
3. For SC .... Try to cover the basic rules & GMATNinja vedios before practice ( 1 golden rule : know why the wrong choice is wrong)

For Quant :
1. Use GMAT Club pdf (free !! )to refresh and/or learn the concepts tested in the exam.
2. Start practicing 500 level Qs at the links below, and once I reach 90% accuracy I would move to 600 level.
3. Similarly at 600 level I would strive for 80-85% accuracy and then move to 700 level.
4. And then continue with 700 level ..... more the merrier !!
5. Finally use GMAT Club Q-Tests if you are targetting Q48++

All the best !!

Since you have mentioned that you got a 400 after preparing for 3 months then improving by 300 will take a considerable amount of efforts from your side. Could you share the split between Verbal and Quantitative?

How did you prepare in these 3 months?

Was it a sustained, consistent, effective study?

Did you give a mock before starting with your preparation?

Did you give your best to score a 400?

There are many factors which affect the final score. You need to have the right approach and an effective study plan to become successful. Nothing is impossible in this world if you have the will to succeed.

All the best!

Hi, could you please share your Verbal and Quant split? Experts suggest the study plan based on your individual scores only.
