Scoring Verbal 45+

Post
Hi Experts and Instructors,

I intend to take GMAT in January,2019. I am aiming for only top 3 colleges: HBS, Wharton and Stanford.
I am scoring a Q51. I need a structured and detailed plan for scoring V45+ in the time that i have for preparation.

I can go through all the required resources such as Manhattan SC/CR/RC, Veritas, Powerscore CR/RC and Kaplan along with the OGs if required.
I do have the Manhattan Mocks, Veritas Mocks and Official Exam Packs 1,2,3.

If someone can possibly provide a detailed plan for scoring a V45+ then i would be really grateful.

Regards,
Vinit

There's no special strategy for scoring a 45+ verbal that's any different from what everyone should do to maximize their scores:

- Read strategy guides to make sure you're using good process, and not just relying on instincts. More here:

- Review very thoroughly, and track your mistakes in careful detail.
