Need advice for verbal improvement

    I started GMAT preparation around 3 months back. My study hours are primarily limited to weekend only.

    I have completed Kaplan premier, Manhattan GMAT - SC, OG 11. In addition, I have quickly browsed (not complete study), Barron's for Quant and Cracking the GMAT (2005) for verbal

    In diagnostics of GMATPrep, I scored 650 (Feb)
    In last 3 weeks, I took 3 MGMAT CAT tests with following scores
    MGMAT CAT 1 - 650 (47 Q, 32 V)
    MGMAT CAT 2 - 700 (47 Q, 39 V)
    MGMAT CAT 3 - 650 (47 Q, 32 V)

    For improvement in Quant score, I intend to study MGMAT Number properties, Word Translation and Geometry guides however I am clue less about improvement in verbal. I need to take GMAT within a month to be able to meet deadline for a school. Target GMAT score is 730

    Request for suggestion on improving verbal score quickly (with or without course). Thanks

    There aren't really any simple and fast strategies for improving verbal, just lots of practice and analysis. For some additional resources to help you prep, you might want to check out: http://del.icio.us/beatthegmat

    Good luck!
