Hello

I have studied verbal from Manhattan guides. I have been practicing for more than a month but my score is stuck at 36/37. I scored 34 in my first test with 0 preparation and 36 in the 6th test. My GMAT test is in 10 days and I really need to touch 40 in verbal. Can you suggest what can I do?

Your verbal score is very good, especially considering that you've been preparing for only a month.

Moving from 36 to 40 means a 10 percentile jump, which might be a little difficult to do reliably in 10 days. However, you could check to see whether there are any obvious weaknesses in your verbal (things that always pull your score down) and work on them. You could do this with non-official tests, but the GMATPrep tests would be the best.

Just be a little careful with this though: if you try too hard, you could end up underperforming on the actual exam. View this process as making small refinements in your approach rather than any big adjustments. If you feel big changes are needed, it'll be safer to give yourself more time to prepare (most test takers prepare over 3-4 months).

All the best!

That's excellent news! What was the total? A V41 with a strong quant score should mean a total score of 700 or more :-)
