Hi All, I am a typical Indian student who is good in Quant but not so great in verbal. I need help regarding the approach to solve the Verbal section. Can any of my fellow GMATClub contributers help me out regarding this? I am a non native, so I know I need to unlearn a lot of things. Please help!

Hi Digvijay101,

Here are most important points to consider:
Make Reading your habit.
Be consistent.
Revise alot.

Hi Digvijay101

The first step would be to take a free test(available on mba.com). Once you have
a preliminary score, the experts at this forum will be able to suggest a strategy.
To improve your verbal score, you could try the free trials of the various prep
companies, which you can find here on GMATClub.

You could check the reviews here: https://gmatclub.com/reviews/gmat_courses?fl=menu

Some additional books/course I would recommend are as follow
SC : Aristotle SC Grail/e-GMAT SC(they don't offer the individual package, but you
could try talking to them. Worst case scenario - Take the verbal package, costs $199)
CR : Powerscore CR Bible - This book alone is enough to improve your CR skills
RC : Read this post.

For Quant, you could use the ULTIMATE GMAT QUANTITATIVE MEGATHREAD for concepts.

Would be happy answering any specific questions that you might have.
Hope this information helps you!

Hi Digvijay101,

For verbal, I would highly encourage you to consider e-gmat verbal online or the e-gmat verbal live course. They are both amazing courses especially designed for non-natives. They offer almost 25% of their courses for free so you can try out their free trial to decide which one you want to go for. Plus the e-gmat Scholaranium which is included in both the courses is one of the best verbal practice tools in the market. You can easily track your progress in that you can identify your strengths and analyze and improve on your weak areas.

Further taking multiple mocks might help. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

Further another advantage of taking many mocks is to build up your stamina. Apart from the GMATPREP tests, taking practise tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

I would also encourage you to purchase the GMATPREP QP 1 for some great additional practice. Here is a link that will help you with your decision.

Hope this helps. All the best.
