Hi!

I need to improve my Gmat verbal by 12-15 points in a month. Can I do that? And if i can, what resources do i need?I am considering enrolling to a course too..(Online). which course will be beneficial most for the nonnative speaker?

P.S.-I have prepared for GMAT for 3-4 months, and took a GMAT (was completely stressed though and felt not ready) and scored 23 in verbal.

A few thoughts:
- Based on your low starting score, the possibility of doing that is higher than if your starting score were in the mid-30s.
- One month is probably not enough time.
- The best way IMO to radically and efficiently improve Verbal skills is to read the WSJ or NY Times on a daily basis.

I will strongly recommend e-gmat.com. This is quality resource for non-natives. I particularly found there SC course complete and easy to follow.
They offer some content as trial. You can give it a try.

This this this! Do this! Read an American newspaper every day. It helps out so much and incorporates all the parts of Verbal. Do this every day and it will pay off!
