Assuming that your CATs function in a similar way, all 3 of your CAT scores revolve around 550. Even though it's been a full month since your 2nd CAT, you're still scoring at the same general level. Given that, you're going to need time to learn to 'see' (and respond to) the GMAT in new ways. With a score goal of 720+, you're likely going to need 2-3 months of consistent guided study to hit that goal. While you can take the GMAT on April 22nd as planned, you're almost certainly going to end up taking it again later (so you can decide whether you want to spend an extra$250 on a retest or $50 paying to reschedule this Exam). Based on everything that youâ€™ve described, I think that you would find the EMPOWERgmat Total Score Booster to be quite helpful. Most of our clients complete that Study Plan in well under 2 months. We have a variety of free resources on our site (www.empowergmat.com), so you can 'test out' the Course before setting up an Account. If you have any additional questions, then you can feel free to contact me directly.

Would you suggest me to review that CAT or to take another CAT, and then assess it for the above questions? ### GMAT/MBA Expert DavidG@VeritasPrep Legendary Member Joined 14 Jan 2015 Posted: 2459 messages Followed by: 115 members Upvotes: 1153 GMAT Score: 770 Sun Mar 06, 2016 10:55 am aku650 wrote: Hey guys, I am preparing for GMAT and looking for a right verbal instructor to get good score in verbal.

A few easy tweaks you can make to boost your verbal score: - Read voraciously everyday for two weeks. (Anything challenging will do.) There's research suggesting that the physiology of our brains changes when we read more: http://www.theatlantic.com/education/archive/2014/01/study-reading-a-novel-changes-your-brain/282952/ - Consider incorporating some mindfulness meditation. http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2013/05/study-meditation-improves-memory-attention/275564/ Afterwards, review the official material you've worked through and see if there are patterns to the questions you've missed. Anything unclear, post here. Jot a few notes to yourself about simple adjustments you can make. Remember that for all the strategies/grammar rules we teach, the verbal section is primarily about logic and focus. Practice boiling everything down to its essence. Always ask yourself, before you select an answer in sentence correction, if the sentence, when read literally, is clear and logical. Before you select an answer in Critical Reasoning always take another moment and ask if your answer really does impact the conclusion. Before you select an answer in Reading Comp ask yourself if there's textual support for that answer. Be relentless. Then hit some fresh official tests: http://www.mba.com/us/store/store-catalog/gmat-preparation/gmatprep-exam-pack-1.aspx _________________ Veritas Prep | GMAT Instructor Veritas Prep Reviews Save$100 off any live Veritas Prep GMAT Course

Hi aku650,

With a score goal of 720, you'll have to make some BIG improvements to BOTH your Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores. Since your Quant score on both of your CATs is the same (Q44), it's not clear how you intend to raise that score to a Q50 on your own, so you're likely going to need help in that area as well.

An April 22nd Test Date still gives you plenty of time to study and improve, but you might end up needing to push back your Test Date. Your studies so far have been 'book heavy'; many Test Takers who study in that way end up getting 'stuck' at a particular score level and it's possible that that has happened to you. Ultimately, you're going to need to learn/practice some new Tactics for both the Quant and Verbal sections and eliminate the little mistakes that currently occur in your work.

Before you spend a lot of money on a tutor, here are some things that you should review about your last CAT:

How many questions did you get wrong because...
1) of a silly/little mistake?
2) the question was too hard?
3) you narrowed the answers down to 2 choices and 'guessed wrong'?
4) you were low on time and had to blindly guess?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
