Gmat is like climbing a mountain. The mountain seems to be too tough or too high which makes you want to give up. Even if you are taking small steps everyday studying a few hours, reaching 3 months of studying seems to be a duanting task. How do you keep going in this instance, for someone who wants to give up after couple of weeks of studying.

Hello ravmaster ..... welcome to the community.

I donot consider myself an expert. But...... below are my 2 cents as an common journeyman......


1. First of all forget everything.
2. Take 2-3 days off.
3. Take time and think if you are ready to dive in this journey.
4. The link below will give you a general view :
https://gmatclub.com/forum/gmat-study-p ... ml#p605856

5. Once you are mentally in there .... then start.

Now coming to the score ..... V12 means ... your concepts are still weak compared to GMAT standard. I have not seen any mention of Q, so combining initial information for both Q & V:

1. For Quant use GMAT Club book ( free pdf) and practice in the forum. Move up the level gradually. i.e., when your accuracy level is >90% at 500 level under 2 mins then move to 600 level and so on.
Practice link:
PS : https://gmatclub.com/forum/gmat-ps-ques ... l#p1048252
DS : https://gmatclub.com/forum/ds-question- ... 28728.html

2. For Verbal official questions are the best. Solve them mindfully ( you need to know why wrongs are wrong ) . Go through the explanations on the GMAT CLUB forum. In case you feel you need help for Verbal.... enroll yourself for any of the good online courses- namely, e-gmat, veritas, orion, manhattan etc. , and work on it diligently to solidify your concept.

Keep taking mocks to gauge your progress in alternate 3-4 weeks.


And ........ finally share your glittering success story with your peers at GMAT Club (us !!).

Good Luck !!

To be honest, I have read about several people scoring between 10 and 20 on Verbal, and then after a rigorous preparation coring as high as V40, if not higher. For clarity, you do not need to be an expert in English because the test is neither a test of Grammar or a test of English language. The verbal section on the GMAT tests your Critical Thinking, not English.

A V12 is disappointing but do not get discouraged so easily. Most importantly, did you score V12 on an GMAT Prep test or on any other company's practice test?
Take another test in 1-2 weeks and see where you stand. Using these scores, you need to focus on certain question types, such as SC, CR, or RC.

All the best.
