Hi,

My GMAT is scheduled on 26th April. Therefore, I have roughly 2 weeks left. I am non-native English speaker with engineering background and preparing for GMAT for last 3 months.

Over the period of last 3 months I have given a few tests and scores are -
Kaplan 1 (V29, Q44)
Kaplan 2 (V29, Q50)
Kaplan 3 (V30, Q 46)
GMAT Prep 1 (V28, Q49)
MGMAT 3 (V30, Q48)

No way I am able to score more than 29-30 in verbal. But quantitative scores are high most of the time. I am targeting a score of 700 (approx V35-36 and Q48-50). As I am working currently I can roughly spend 2-3 hrs on working days and 6-8 hrs on weekends for preparation.

Is it possible to improve the verbal score to 35-36 from 29-30 in 2 weeks? Please Help!! Any suggestion will be appreciated....

Thanks,

From what I understand, the quickest way to improve your verbal score is through SC.

It's easier to learn the rules and concepts behind grammar than to increase your logical reasoning ability (CR/RC).

While it's possible to reach your goal of 35V, it would've been better if we had a few more weeks to develop a proper approach.

Have you been using an error log? This allows you to focus on your weaknesses and shore up your score. So determine where your weakest areas are and work on those the most.

Have you used any guidebooks for verbal? If so, try to reread whatever you have for CR and SC. Rereading helps quite a bit, actually.
