Hey Guys

I recently gave my GMAT. I got my ESR today. I had a few doubts, and request experts to offer their 2 cents ..

1. • Your performance on Critical Reasoning questions was equivalent to a score of 41, which is better than 88% of GMAT
Exam scores recorded in the past three years. The mean score for this sub-section is 27.57.
◦ Your performance of 75% on Analysis/Critique questions is considered Above Average.
◦ Your performance of 100% on Construction/Plan questions is considered Very Strong.
• Your performance on Reading Comprehension questions was equivalent to a score of 16, which is better than 16% of
GMAT Exam scores recorded in the past three years. The mean score for this sub-section is 27.24.
◦ Your performance of 40% on Identify Inferred Idea questions is considered Weak.
◦ Your performance of 40% on Identify Stated Idea questions is considered Weak.
• Your performance on Sentence Correction questions was equivalent to a score of 35, which is better than 72% of
GMAT Exam scores recorded in the past three years. The mean score for this sub-section is 27.27.
◦ Your performance of 80% on Grammar questions is considered Above Average.
◦ Your performance of 57% on Communication questions is considered Average.

The above is my summary of the verbal sec. What i wanted to know is clearly i lack considerably in RC. With my next attempt due within a month, should i focus 80% of my Verbal time on practicing RC or i treat it like i was prior to my exams where all the 3 sections were equally imp.? (Quant requires alot of work. So the way i was managing time is by focusing more on Q then V)
Also , can someone explain the diff between grammar ques and communication ques on SC?
Reviewing the above, if someone can guide me on how to proceed with the Verbal Section?

Coming to my Quant- It was miserable.
I wanted help on the below points:-
Your performance of 25% on Equal./Inequal./Alg. questions is considered Very Weak.
• Your performance of 50% on Counting/Sets/Series questions is considered Weak.

So evidently im extremely weak in Inequalities . Can someone help with the best source to work on the " fundamentals " of this subject in specific?
Also, Speed Time Distance and Combinatrics are a part of the Arithmetic ?

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
TIA

It means exactly what you typed and read
You can work in 2:1 ratio
You certainly cannot work on one and pick other up later
What was the overall score?

Hi.
Thanks for responding.

The overall score was well below what i expected. A 610.

Extremely disappointed, and hence was inclined more towards the weaker sections.
RC has clearly been one major factor . I know practicing is the only way to crack RC , and i am following the rule. However, i really need some help with the Quant. At home i am able to solve almost all of the 650-700 level ques, but i cannot reciprocate the performance in the exam. Hence, i wanted advise on a good source - for understanding any time saving tricks, strategies , specifically for Algebra and Inequalities. I saw more than 9 questions related to this topic. ( Including Mods / Roots ) . I still lack confidence and looking to work on the fundamentals.
