Hey guys I was wondering if anyone had some study advice for the verbal portion of the gmat? I am getting ready to take it again in 2 weeks and my verbal score has gone down, as opposed to up, after studying for a week or two. I scored a 35, and around that for the practice tests for the first time, and now I am scoring around 26-28. Im not too sure why it has fallen so much, but it is really nerve-wrecking to put so much time into studying and not see any results at all.

My Quant score overall improved after studying, so any advice for the verbal?

If it is any help, the major change I did on SC (my hardest subject) is to look at why sentences are wrong in terms of grammatical errors as opposed to what sounds right.
