I have scored 690 on GMAT Prep software. Q-49 (83rd percentile) & V-34 (69th percentile). There is no timing problem in Quant. In verbal, i have to guess on last 7-9 questions as i run out of time in the end. Official SC questions are more on awkwardness and wordiness, so i am not able to use splits and have to read all the answer choices completely and it takes time. In critical reasoning also, it takes time to read the question stem and all 5 choices. I am not able to comprehend quickly the language of most of the questions, question stems, passages and answer choices of SC, CR and RC of GMAT Prep exam. It is not everyday English which we find in newspapers, magazines or TV. However, my accuracy in verbal section is good on questions attempted by me. As far as my preparation is concerned, i have thoroughly completed the following guides.
SC - Manhattan, SC Grail, OG13 and OG-Verbal
CR - Manhattan, Powerscore, OG13 and OG-Verbal
RC - Manhattan, OG13 and OG-Verbal

Nothing is helping me to improve my speed on verbal.

Please advise as to how to increase my speed in verbal. If i am able to complete verbal in time, i can get a much higher score.

Even I am looking for a solution to this problem.
it is taking a lot of time for individual questions also, though accuracy has improved but sometimes it takes 4-5 mins per questin in cr/sc

Hi

Verbal is something really exhausts, In My point of view
to meet the pace of Verbal Question you should practice
questions in form of Quiz. Take as many quizzes as much
you can. Always stop on 2 minutes time and then check you
performance. Continue this practice until you succeed
GMAT Club Test can be taken in the form of Quizzes

Good Luck

Hi,

I believe your concepts for verbal are clear you just need some additional practice. I would highly encourage you to consider the e-gmat Scholaranium. It is one of the best verbal practice tools in the market and will not only help you point out your weaknesses but also help you improve on them.

Further taking multiple mocks might help. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have a good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

Further another advantage of taking many mocks is to build up your stamina. Apart from the GMATPREP tests, taking practise tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

You can also get a lot of help from this website. You can take as many timers as you'd like and can compare your timings with the other members of the community.

Hope this helps. All the best.
