Hi Everyone,

I just started my Gmat preparation, since my Quant is good so i started with verbal...It's freaking tough...I started w MGMAT SC guide but i can't seem to get handle around it..after review i didn't even get one right answer w problem set but when i went and did Official guide questions, i got 4 out 6 right...Confused not sure why??

Can anyone guide me as to what this situation sound to you and what can i do to overcome it.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks.

Don't start with a guide that is specific to just one question type. Get an overall review guide that covers the entire test and offers general testing strategies as well as question-type strategies. Then do the SC book. I would start with Cracking the GMAT...I thought it had the best overall approach and its verbal is especially good. Plus you get four tests thru the DVD so you're not just doing untimed practice questions.

You must do the OG questions LAST!

Go download GMATPrep CAT exam. Do a dianostic test. Get your pre-studying score. Then decide whether you are really good at quant. (Believe me, math on GMAt was big surprise...and I finished high school math req in 9th grade...)

Then buy study guides related to your weakness. For example, Manhattan SC guide like you already own.

Study those. Then once you thoroughly review all the fundamentals, do OG problems. Once you are done with entire OG book (critical if you really wanna do well) retake GMATPrep again. You must take CAT exam before deciding to actually take the real exam.

I disagree that you need to do the OG last. It should be mixed in with prep tests as you continue to study. The questions get harder as you go. There's no need to do the entire thing and then take another prep test. Work through to a certain point and then test again. You may not need to buy additional materials if you pace yourself well through the OG and CATs.
