Strategy for Verbal and Fine tuning for Quant  [#permalink]

Recently took the 1st Veritas gmat prep test and had a abysmal verbal score.
I do understand I got 5 difficult obscure passages but in general I want to ask somebody who have scored ( >700 ) of what should be the strategy for the verbal part.
I have the 1000 SC and 1000 CR . And I m currently working in the 1000 SC .
If anybody has the 1000 RC, I would appreciate if you could mail it to me at firoz_rah@yahoo.com.
For SC I am consulting Manhattan SC booklet and finding it quite helpful.
For CR , we have just started working in logic and reasoning with Veritas.
For RC, i haven't even started as such.
I would really appreciate if someone shares useful tips for the verbal part.
And for the quant , for my first pratice test scored 44 ( got 7 wrong ) . So I would
like to know how to fine tune the quant so that errors are limited to 2/3 probs out of 37.
All the 700 GMATers , your valubale feedback would be highly appreciated.

i just recently got a 700 (45Q 41V) my first time out and I found the most useful prep setup for the SC questions was to learn the actual grammatical rules of English through some sort of English Textbook, for prep books like princeton review don't really go into that. Also, with SC questions, they almost always have to do with parallelism, where they give you a sentence that lists three things and they have to all be in the same tense and use the same conjunctions (if any). when doing SC questions, make sure to pay close attention to sentence structure and verb tenses. As for CR, you just have to use your intellect...I'm not a really big help with those. Review books are pretty helpful in that area, it's pretty much just figuring though. For the questions that involve a passage, it does help to make notes as to the position of key information in the text. this will help you reference it when you need it, mostly just names of researchers and subjects of paragraphs. Also, make sure that if, after you read the passage, you have practically no grasp of the main idea or you aren't very clear on some parts of it, slap yourself or something and make sure you pay attention the second time. (it got me a few times) bc late in the test your mind tends to wander and such and its hard to keep focus. just a tip, with 75 mins I finished with like 20 extra, so definitely take your time on the passage questions, you shouldn't be in a huge hurry (but again try not to take way too long).
