Hello,

I am aiming for V40 or higher in Verbal section. I am comfortable with CR and SC and RC is third in terms of comfort level. Having said that I am looking for section wise accuracy level that I should aim for to reach V40.

Can someone help me understand what accuracy level I should aim for individual sections SC, CR and RC to reach V40 or higher.

Regards
Raghu

hi akadiyan:
TO get V40, make sure not to make incorrect more than 5 questions continually. Basically it all depends on the adaptability of the test. Focus more on the first 20 questions, but do not loose the remaining 20. First 20 questions helps you achieve your target score, remaining 20 is all about maintaining your score.

Hi,

Focus on RC as it is the most time taking part of Verbal prep. Its all about getting harder questions to reach high score on GMAT. You can't under prepare any section. SC is the easiest to improve as it has set rules to with. Do 3 RC passages a day, and spend enough time to see how the answer choices have been created.

If you are not done with OG, you can start with OG. You have around 140 questions in OG. Then you can use official Verbal Review guide. You can buy Question Pack from GMAC. These are the best materials you can use for RC since all those listed above are official materials. All these 3 materials combined will give roughly 60 to 70 passages.

People also recommend LSAT RC which are considered tougher, you can go for it after you utilized all your official materials.

Also, subscribe to RC Forum in GMAT Club. You will get a list of questions daily in the email.

All the best for your preparation.

OGs are the best resources for RC. OG 18 has around 30 RC passages. You can use verval review after that. After exhausting both, you can go for Exam pack 1 and 2.

Also, use GCs RC forum to your advantage as OGs have restricted explnations to answers. You can find every passage in GC for explanations. Make sure to devote enough time to understand the right as well as wrong answer choices.

After exhausting these resources, if you think you need more material, then you can go for Magoosh or e-gmat.

Thanks for all the responses.

I am looking for information about accuracy level to reach in individual sections to reach higher verbal scores. For example, those who are good in CR and SC should aim to get 90% in SC, and CR questions and 70% accuracy in RC. The numbers are just an example used to explain what I am looking for.

Thanks again for inputs.

You should certainly aim more than 90% accuracy in SC as it is easiest to improve relatively. For CR and RC look for 70 to 80% accuracy to reach V40 or higher. Though general accuracy does not directly impact your score, it the accuracy according to the difficulty level of the questions that helps your score. A

Attach file may help you understand, though to an extent, how GMACs algorithm works.

Hope this helps.
