I just took my test from the GMATPrep software. I got Q45 V19. Please suggest some methods to improve my verbal score. My target score is 660 and above. I have only 1 month for the actual test.

Hi Bala0801,

I am sharing a high-level plan for you in this response. In order to share a detailed plan, I would like to know some more details from you.
a. Is this the score in mock test after some preparation or Diagnostic test without any?
b. How have you been studying so far?
c. How much time will you be able to devote in this one month towards preparation?
Once you respond to these questions I will be able to share a more detailed plan with you. For a detailed plan write to us at support@e-gmat.com.

How to score 660+ in GMAT?

There are multiple ways in which you can score 660+ in GMAT depending upon your strengths and weaknesses. It is essential that you select one of those ways and then try to achieve that goal. Having a specific target will ensure that you know how to efficiently prepare for the test while ensuring the desired result. I am sharing a few ways to attain 660+ score. You can target your own scores as well using GMAT Planner Tool.

Key to Improving from V19 to V35 – Conceptual Clarity & Consistent Approach

GMAT tests your reasoning skills in various ways and to be able to successfully answer the questions thrown at you, you must develop conceptual clarity and consistent approach to solve those questions. Your approach shouldn’t be one of tricks and shortcuts that may fail you on the test day on difficult questions but a reliable and repeatable one.
You can take Free Trial offered by various test prep companies to decide the approach that suits your learning style the best. I am sharing some direct links to free trial concepts of e-GMAT. You can get access to 25+ video lessons and 350+ practice questions by registering for the e-GMAT Free Trial

Hello my friend,

by far not all hope is lost, actually you seem to head for your second attempt with a quite solid foundation when it comes to the quant section.

With regards to improving some of your verbal issues maybe the following strategies are of help to you:

https://gmatclub.com/forum/verbal-strat ... l#p2082192

Moreover I would suggest to have a look at the verban explanation videos from Veritas Prep and GmatNinja those are both two great ressources with regards to improving ones verbal score.
While does videos are no replacement for dedicated prep and solving actual questions, some of the hints and tips provided might come in very handy during your next GMAT adventure.

Nonetheless make sure to check some of the questions and their respective answers in this forum, than can be a great source of insight with regards to some topics you might struggle in.

Best of luck for your prep,
Chris

Hello everyone,

Thank you so much egmat, Arro44, EducationAisle for trying to help me.

I took the test in the old format (26 of 41 correct). My first 3 questions (SC) are wrong. so, I think that three questions lowered my score a lot. I have done SC and CR with around 60% accuracy.
1 out of 4 RC passages is correct.
