How to raise Verbal Score from 14 to 38

Post Mon Sep 29, 2008 10:17 pm
Hi,

I appeared for GMAT sometime in year 2005 but got very poor score of 480 (Verbal-14, & Quant-44). I think I did not do any analysis of my week area in Verbal specially, SC & RC and just appeared for the exam.

I am again appearing for the exam sometime in Nov. I come from software background with around 13 year of industry experience. I am targetting somewhere between 650 to 680. I feel I can improve my qant to somewhere around 47, but I am having trouble in increasing my accuracy in SC and RC that is around (using 11th edition) 65%. My CR accuracy is 80+.

Now my question is.

1. Is there any specific strategy, which can be used for SC & RC?

2. What accuracy level in RC & SC you need to touch 37 or 38 in verbal. (based on your experiences)


Regards,
Raj

Hi,

To improve SC, order MGMAT SC book and read it all from first page to last page without skipping any strategy. Its really good book.

For RC, there is really not any typical suggestions that fits all but the best thing to do it is to practice, practice, practice and more practice.

For SC also download spidey notes from:

Hope that helps.
