I asked in my earlier post some queriesbut got no reply from anyone on the issue which i am having in my GMAT road to glory. I have got score of 530 with Q42, V21 inspite of completing OG verbal with 70 percent accuracy. I am targeting 720 and planing to give exam around july. I can devote 4-5 hrs daily with 1 month break because of my college exam. Please suggest me books which i can use as i just have OG books. Also i am about to buy veritas and Manhattan test series.. Are they good or should I go for some other. Also tell me where else i can get free study material for practice which will help me.
Please reply I am very motivated to just crack it and get in some top B school preferably in India.

Hi joyzubby28,

The original post that you referred to (here):

https://gmatclub.com/forum/one-month-of ... l#p1816024

...was less than 6 hours before this post. You'll likely get more responses if you just wait a bit. That having been said, I responded to your other post with the following questions:

Studies:
1) When did you actually begin your studies? What type of study schedule did you follow?
2) How did you score on each of your practice CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores)?

Goals:
3) What is your goal score?
4) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
5) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

You've already answered some of these questions in your post here - which is helpful, but I'd like answers to them all. Raising a 530 to a 720+ will take some significant work though - and you'll have to make some significant improvements to how you handle BOTH the Quant and Verbal sections. You'll likely need at least another 3 months (or more) of consistent, guided study to get to that level. In addition, you would likely find it beneficial to invest in a GMAT Course of some type (either Guided Self-Study or instructor-led).

Thankfully, the GMAT is a consistent, predictable Exam, so you CAN train to score at a higher level.

Sir all the questions asked by you i have answered them in my other post where you have replied. I am ready to do what ever hard work it takes. Please suggest free portals as i can't afford to spend 250$ or 500$ right now. I can buy few test series. Few of my college seniors have got 720,680 just by online free stuffs i don't know how.. But i couldn't ask them the source at that time and now they are out of connection.
Thanks

Sir i got the Manhattan complete strategy guide 5th edition which has 12 books. But sir i find it more theoretical and have less practice questions. Is it fine to concentrate only on theory first? I was thinking to practice too alongside these books. I have completed OG 16 and i found almost same questions in OG 15.Please suggest where should i practice questions after going through theory of Manhattan. Also suggest if these materials are enough? Btw a gave 2 more cats and got 590 and 580 with scaled score (q44 v28)... How much scaled score I need for 700-720??

Quant:
Study material:
If you want to brush up your basics really well then Manhattan's Foundation book is great!
Magoosh is great value for money for all of gmat quant, they also offer excellent email support.
But if you aren't too bad with math then you can check gmatclub's theory book, it is a free and useful resource: https://gmatclub.com/forum/gmat-math-bo ... 30609.html
Workbook:
Use gmatclub's OG guide: https://gmatclub.com/forum/gmat-club-gu ... 29823.html
it offers you topic wise/difficulty wise questions of all of quant. Finish any one OG and a quant review. start with medium level questions, if you aren't solving them correctly, then review relevant lessons from magoosh, solve more questions of those type and then move on to next topic.
solve gmatclub tests questions, buy their CATS, it's really worth. make sure you review each question, if you have doubts, post it on the forum.

Verbal:
sc:
you need to be well versed with parallelism/idioms-you can learn this egmat(there are free videos and blog posts available)
also check their meaning based approach, very useful to improve accuracy. (stick to og questions)
cr:
check egmats blog posts on specific subtopics tested on the gmat.
you can use this technique while solving questions: Picture one person who you really enjoy disagreeing with, or simply someone you listen to with a lot of disapproval, the kind you want to prove wrong. Whenever you attempt a question, think that the CR prompt is being spoken by this person. When you do this, apart from grabbing your full attention, you will also be able to instantly find faults in the said person's argument. After that, read the question and pre-think the answer without checking the options, you will be able to eliminate answers more easily and this should also help in spotting the correct answer.

rc:
check this magoosh article to understand different rc question types: https://magoosh.com/gmat/2016/strategie ... ion-types/
try to understand the big picture of each passage. how? summarize every paragraph in a sentence or two, reword it in your head in a language you're most comfortable with. then summarize each of these 1/2 line paragraph summaries, into 1/2 sentence passage summary- this is the big idea/primary message of the passage.
observe shifts in tone of the author, and note them down or anything that the author stresses in the passage.

I have got score of 530 with Q42, V21

Hello joyzubby28, for your target score of 720, your current V21 needs to go up massively.

Our sentence correction book Sentence Correction Nirvana is perhaps the only book that offers a score improvement guarantee, and is especially designed for non-native speakers.

After reading the book twice (yes! it's an academic book, and so must be read twice in all seriousness, to reinforce the concepts), you will start looking forward to solving SC questions!

The book is available on Flipkart and Amazon.in. You might want to refer to these sites, to also read testimonials of how readers have benefited.

See here how Sowmya increased her score from 530 to 730 on GMAT, after our course.

If you want to sample a chapter before deciding to go ahead with our book, please PM me your mail-id (along with the chapter that you would like to sample) and I will be happy to send that chapter to you by mail. In addition, the entire Grammar section of the book is also available for free preview at pothi.
