Need advice for verbal improvement

Post Mon Jun 16, 2008 12:08 pm
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

Moved to GMAT Verbal and Essays area...

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!
