Hi friends,

I am not a new person in the club but I have been an active member

(only by viewing the posts). Sorry for the lenthy post but felt i need

some suggesstions from you brilliant people in the club.

I am an Indian working professional. I have a PGDBM(MBA equivalent in

India) and looking to pursue MS finance from US universities for fall


I have scheduled GMAT in the second week of September(now feeling its

pretty early) looking to reschedule and extend another 2 months. I will

be satisfied with score of atlest 650.

currently I have the following materials:

Barrons GMAT
1000 series
CATs: Power prep, Gmat prep and crack gmat.

I am not in a position to spend on some more materials as I am having

lots of financial commitments(Sorry but this is a constraint).

I recently took online PRCAT to check my standing without preparation

but able to score 34Q and 9V(neglected and answered blindly).
I am confident as to improving my quant score but my greatest sickness

is in Verbal as english not a native language. I am able to get only 40

to 50% of the questions correct during my practice of 2-3 hrs a day and

6-8 hrs on weekends. I believe I am going somewhere wrong after

understanding the question.

Please help me with the following:

Some simple tips to improve verbal( CR>sc>RC).

Wat can be the ideal score to pursue MS finance from top university as

my GPA is a bit stronger of 3.7 - 3.8.

Where do I find exlplanations for answers of 1000 series.

Let me know for any more info.

Please see some verbal tips here: ... 5bf8a4c895

The only way to find the explanations for the 1000 docs would be to search the forums. Virtually all of the questions in those docs were discussed on GMATClub in the past.

Check out nervous's post, it's really detailed. Here are my two cents: CR, practice ID conclusion and evidence for each Q...makes it easy to ID assumptions. This helps with strengthen/weaken Qs as well. For inference Qs, remember the correct answer must be true based on the information provided. Avoid ACs that stray away from what is explicitly written. SC: Check out MGMAT SC Guide, it really helped me out. Also, there is a list of brutal SCs floating around on these forums...use them to see some of the hardes Qs out there. I don't know what I can say about RC...I'm a native English speaker so I didn't bother prepping for this part of the test. Some of my friends have found that making a passage map helpful, others use the Qs themselves to guide where they have to look. G'luck!
