Moved this thread to GMAT Verbal section...

Can you describe your GMAT study strategy to date? Have you been systematically identifying/addressing your weaknesses in verbal? What would you say are your weakest subjects in verbal right now?

It sounds like you need a solid study strategy that methodically addresses your problems in GMAT verbal. Take some time to study the resources available here:

I highly recommend that you study this thread as well, on using practice grids: http://www.beatthegmat.com/viewtopic.php?t=68

Hi Eric,

I also think the same but not able to zero down my weakness, However in Critical reasoning I do ok 60-70% but in sentence correction and RC, I am not sure may be the lack of concepts is the biggest problem for the inconsistent scores in RC and SC.

Thanks for the suggestion will try to zero down my weakness by using the grid and doing some more detailed analysis.

Can anybody also suggest me some good concept book on SC.

For sentence correction, get the Manhattan GMAT Sentence Correction Guide

Best of luck!
