Verbal - study strategy ...

    Hi All,

    Most of my preparations (to-date) have been primarily focussed on the QUANT topics.
    I havent really studied any part of Verbal.
    However, I took my first practice MGMAT CAT last week, and scored a 33 (69%) on the verbal ... without any real prep in this area.

    I am aiming for a score of 700+.

    Any specific advice or feedback on how best to approach the verbal part of the test would be appreciated.

    On my initial assessment of my first CAT ... it looks as if I have been making several careless mistakes on the RC ... and CR also appear to stand out a the areas in which I made the most errors.

    Thanks.

    The approach I usually recommend is agnostic to verbal or math questions--it's systematically identifying and analyzing your errors. Have you used the GMAT Practice Grid during your prep? You can find it here: http://del.icio.us/beatthegmat
