Hi
I am sorry, this question was asked before but still. I need help
I bought GMAT LIVE course from Veritas last year, I attended the course but could not give full attention to it because of personal reasons. I started studying seriously from Apr 1, and am only averaging 540 in my mock tests and 60-70% on all areas. How can I fix this ? I am following the veritas 3 month schedule but keep falling off it.
Should I go back to basics again ? I have reviewed my Quant mistakes, and I see careless errors but I also see problems that I seem to have no clue about. I have confidence that I will improve Quant but I am not at all confident that I will improve even if I retake verbal. E-Gmat seems to have very good verbal and am thinking about buying their verbal course.
Can anybody give any suggestions and what would be the best way achieve 750 ? I am really at a loss here please help
Thanks

Hey auj012,

You are looking for a 200 point increase so that will need some effort. If you still have access to your course, you might want to review the video recordings. Since you are at 540 currently, it means there are quite a few gaps in basics so the videos will help you fill many of them.

When you come across problems you don't understand at all, go back to their concepts. Once you understand them properly, solve some similar practice problems.

In my opinion, the Veritas curriculum does a great job in Verbal too. The CR book tells you everything you need to know for GMAT CR. The RC gives you great passage practice and SC book teaches you exactly how to approach SC questions. The main focus on SC questions of today is meaning. They are logic based. Other than the basic grammar rules, you need little else. No point getting lost in grammar terminology. Instead, reason out the correct usage.
At the end of the day, take a call according to your comfort.
