Long time lurker and posting for the first time. I took the GMAT for the first time in September Q46, V25 for a 560 and then re-took it and got a Q48, V30 for a 640. I have taken CATs from MGMAT and have averaged 36-40 on Verbal so I don't know why I'm choking on test date. I am enrolled in Knewton and have gone over the MGMAT books as well. I have the OG and the two additional OG books as well. Part of it is timing for me; I have to always guess on the last two. I read the Economist as well, and I am a native English speaker....so I don't know why I'm choking badly on the Verbal. Do any of you guys have tips on improving my score? Thanks a bundle guys.

Have you tried the error log to check where the mistakes are cutting down?

I bought Doing Grammar and Kaplan Verbal foundations. Both seem to be bringing up my verbal score. Hope you find something that helps.

subhabrata1986 haven't tried an error log but will give it a shot since this is my last crack at the test.

SwissMommy: thanks for the book suggestions!
