1) Your scores are declining hence I suggest that you focus on everything than just asking the question for Sentence correction. A professional help would be ideal for student lik eyou who has understanding of basic but who lacks understanding of application

2) First get the score and t hen select the schools. Based on your mock scores you may tentatively plan a list of a few colleges where you find the course that you will prefer pursuing

3) Do NOT decide the date of exam in the beginning because you never know how long is it likely to take for you to be ready for the exam.In ideal scenario, the students gets ready in approximately 12 weeks from the start date of preparation. But since there is always a fee associated with the change in tets dates therefore I suggest that keep a tentative date of almost 12 weeks hence n your mind but avoid booking the exam in beginning

4) GMAT is preferred for MBA than GRE which is not an official information but one part of psyche of the selectors in schools. GRE is best suited for candidates who are not too good with Quant or for those who are interested in Master's program.

I hope this helps!!!

1. You don't include any information about how you're studying, besides taking practice exams. You need a solid plan! There is plenty of advice on this forum about how to do so:

If SC is lagging specifically:
- make sure you have a strategy guide from a top company that lays out all the rules.
- look to the Manhattan Prep blog for advice on strategy:

2. Many of the admissions consultants on this forum offer free phone consultations. They can help you select a list of schools.

3. You'll need at least 3 months to go from the 550 zone to the 700 zone consistently. See how the 1st test goes, then plan the 2nd accordingly.

4. Before asking questions like this, look through the forum. This question has been answered dozens of times.

I have the same problem with you. As for you last question, I think you should search for the college's requirements on gmat or gre.
