Timing in SC can be improved significantly by improving the understanding of your concepts. For RC you need to practice your reading strategy and solve more and more inference questions which are more likely to take extra time. For CR you might consider revising the concepts and perfecting the prethinking strategy in a certain category of questions.

Make sure that you attempt all the questions under strict timed conditions.

Practice RC everyday as it takes lot of time on actual tests.
For CR revise the question types and the approach. For SC revise the rules and practice as much as possible to know more idioms.

Hi Prateek,

In another post (https://gmatclub.com/forum/gmat-score-6 ... l#p1940177) you stated that you had recently scored 600/Q48/V25 on the Official GMAT. That V25 means that you're losing significant points in ALL 3 Verbal categories (SC, RC and CR). You've also noted that you have a pacing issue - but pacing issues do NOT exist on their own (they're the results of OTHER issues). It's likely that "your way" of approaching the Verbal section is inefficient, costing you time and points.

Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

1) How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for each)?
2) What is your goal score?
3) When are you planning to retake the GMAT?
4) When are you planning to apply to Business School?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
