Exhausted the OG's Verbal. Need more!

by NDiwan » Mon Aug 24, 2015 7:23 am
Hi experts,

I'm 20 days away from my GMAT and am already done practicing the OG 2016 and the thinner Verbal guide 2016, with a 75-80% accuracy overall. (SC is my strength; CR and RC need more practice.) I can't repeat the OGs again (have already done it atleast once) because I remember most answers and it doesnt reflect if I'm improving. Is there any other source I can pick up to keep myself in the practice mode? I've only just took the first GMAT Prep mock test so far, and have another one that I plan to take this week. I had a 64% accuracy in the Verbal section of this first mock GMAT and it seemed quite tough! What other sources are as close to the OGs that I can continue practicing with until the test day? Help!

For more official practice questions see here: https://www.mba.com/us/store/store-catal ... ack-1.aspx

For two more official practice tests see here: https://www.mba.com/us/store/store-catal ... ack-1.aspx

To get both together (you save $8 if you buy them this way): https://www.mba.com/us/store/store-catal ... ction.aspx

That should be plenty. But if you want even more, we have a free question bank:https://www.veritasprep.com/gmat-question-bank/

Hi NDiwan,

I'm curious to know more about your practice exam results. Take a few minutes and analyze your performance to identify any specific question types that tripped you up. Once we know more about how you did in both sections, we'll be able to give you more specific points of action.

One more resource that you could use is the GMAT Paper tests available on mba.com. I would use the Question Pack first since those questions are more recent than the ones on the Paper tests, but the Paper tests are not a bad additional source of official GMAT questions. The questions are a little easier on average (especially for Quant), but for Verbal they are pretty similar to the questions that are currently on the test.
