Hi, I am planning to retake my GMAT, my fist attempt was 710(Q49,V38), the biggest challenge is to take my verbal from 38 to 45.
The first attempt used MGMAT guides for study and OG for practice, what should be done differently this time is where I need help.

In my practice CR was the strongest and SC was the weakest sub section however as per the ESR, CR was the worst(55th percentile), SC(79th percentile) and RC was fine.

Now I have to draft a study plan for my retake and would appreciate any help in this regard.

PS: I have also exhausted all the practice questions from the OG, OG Quant and OG Verbal 2018 and now I have no idea on how to get more practice questions, will the OG 2019 be fully new or they have lot in common

Hi LJ11,

Congratulations on your first attempt score of 710. It is a good score and improving from here on will be all about plugging gaps.
• Learn how Martina improved from 620 to 730 in just 3 weeks.(V31 to V46 ). Click here to watch her interview to learn how she used Verbal course and Scholaranium in last leg of her prep.
• After scoring a 710, Anuj planned his second attempt, methodically improving his verbal score from V36 to V44 (98 percentile). Click here to watch his amazing video interview to learn how he managed to get to 770. Click here to read his de-brief.

How to Improve from V38 to V45

At V38 you are already at 85 percentile score which suggests good grasp over concepts and application process as well. To improve from here will require you to plug specific gaps that you have instead of randomly studying topics or only solving questions. Here is a 3-steps process to do improve to V45:
• Evaluate topic level preparedness
• Isolate weaknesses and improve upon them
• Track Improvement and repeat the process until you achieve your desired scores

Evaluating Topic Level Preparedness & Isolating Weaknesses

• Check ‘Skill Data’ section to Isolate the topics in which you are weak

Improving Upon the Weaknesses

You may use your current resources to do so or check out our extensive Free Trial content to see if it suits your learning style. I am sharing direct links to a few of them. You can get access to a lot more of these (25+ video lessons and 350+ practice questions) once you sign up for the Free Trial.
