Hi Dear,

I took the GMAT in September 2017 and scored 600( Quant 46, Verbal 26). I have planned to retake the GMAT by June 2018. I gave an online mock test(Veritas) yesterday and scored 610. Given my real GMAT score and the mock score, kindly give me some tips as to how should I plan my study now.

Regards,
Pranjal

Hi Pranjal,

3 months is good enough to improve your score. It’s a good thing you have taken your GMAT once. You now know your weaknesses and work on them. If you are willing to study dedicatedly for 3 months, you are sure to achieve your goal. I believe you may benefit from taking a GMATPREP course. If you are willing, there are some great GMAT prep companies that can help you with your preparation.

In order to make an informed decision I would highly encourage you to go to their websites and try on their free trial and decide for yourself which one do you like better. You try out free access to EmpowerGMAT, Magoosh and Optimus Prep as they have great reviews on GMATCLUB.

Also for verbal, 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.

I must add that if you are particularly looking to discover and improve on your weak areas in quant; a subscription to GMATCLUB tests is the best way to do that. They are indeed phenomenal and will not only pinpoint your weak areas but also help you improve on them.

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 practice tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

Lastly I would also encourage you to purchase the GMATPREP QP 1 for some great additional practice. Here is a link that will help you with your decision.

Hope this helps. All the best.

Hey pranjal07121991

In addition to whatever rohan2345 has already written, I would recommend
you to read the below posts which might help you with finding whats missing
and tips to improve your existing score to beyond 700.

These posts might come in handy to improve your scores
1.V30 -> V40
2.Q44 -> Q50

Also, make it a point to write down why you are getting questions wrong and read these
learning from time to time. Maintaining an error-log will go a long way in improving your
score.

Hope this helps you.
