720 in 3 months, how to improve in 1 month?

Post Sat Jan 07, 2017 6:26 pm
So I've been studying diligently for 3 months - I've been consistently "good" on verbal so I haven't really touched it besides on the CAT tests (and review). So far I've been using Magoosh for quant, the OG (I do both math and verbal questions), and about 2 weeks ago I just layered in Target Test Prep to get me over the hump in quant. My scores have been going up consistently.

My CATs are as follows:

Score Quant Verbal Test
640 42 35 GMAT Prep 1
660 44 36 Manhattan Gmat 1
640 43 34 Manhattan Gmat 2
700 44 41 GMAT Prep 2
720 49 40 GMAT Prep 3

So now I have a month left to the test and my plan is: continue going through the TTP program, finish the magoosh quant videos and questions, and continue working through the OG. what should I be doing for verbal? I feel like if I could get that score up to a 43 or a 44 I'd have a great balanced score.

Originally my goal was 720+, which I feel confident I could get tomorrow, but now that i have a month left and I've been consistently improving I'm thinking of aiming for more like a 740+. Has anyone been in a similar situation to me? Any tips at this point? I'm in the home stretch!

Thanks!
Lea
