It may be worthwhile to change your strategy for Long RC vs Short RC passage. Your Long RC strategy seems fine but shorter needs to be more thorough I would say. Time yourself for reading a long RC and do 4 questions in 8-9 min (roughly 3 min to read the passage and 1 min to answer each question on...

In addition, I do not know but is it OK to solve-say the last CR questions 80-124 in two minutes ? Because when I move on in OG, the questions become harder to solve in two minutes ? And they come consecutively, after a hard question comes another hard, and another... The difficulty level is high a...

Okay, so let me start off by asking you about your attack strategy for RC questions? - How much time do you spend reading a)short passage: I read them also as long passages because when I do not do this, I could not manage the time. b)long passage: Amaterasu: long passages, I read them as Ron said....

I happened to take the GMAT in August and can understand the challenge you are facing in Verbal. I must say that the SC piece was totally out of whack and it was tough to identify the "category" being tested, which makes me now think a majority of it was "idioms". Also in my case I got way more SC ...

some quick comments: Man, I am stuck here. Only one point improvement in quant--> 49 before, and now 50. the highest possible quant score is 51. the difference between 50 and 51 is statistically insignificant, so i'm not sure what you are getting at here. are you upset because you got a 50 rather t...


Thanks mate,
Are you from Azerbaycan ?
Also thank you for your empathy. I agree with all what you have said


Thanks Ron.
I did not think that I memorized the questions or strategies; this situation would be a long shot for me. I did not manage to figure out what I did wrong ?


I do not know. I am a Turkish applicant, not of those who begin their GMAT early at undergraduate. I prepared for one year while FT employed, maybe as many other non-rockstar applicants did. But after such a hustle, I cannot accept this score. Where is the problem, I did not know. Only one point imp...


Update, I wrote the exam today and again 650.
Man, I am stuck here.
Only one point improvement in quant--> 49 before, and now 50.
Verbal is the same, 28
I do not know, whether I had better give up


Thanks Ron for your reply. I watched your Back-Up methods video. By the way I see an improvement in my scores. In all of them, quant was 51, but the verbal is fluctuating between 39-44. MGMAT CAT 3: 760 MGMAT CAT 4: 730 MGMAT CAT 5: 730 It seems that I am on the right track,not ? BTW, 1-1 means I so...

Brothers and Sisters, I already made up my mind to retake. I always will update about my process and progress in this thread. By the way, my retake date is 18 October. I have written 3 practice tests so far. 1) GmatPrep 2 & Review GmatPrep 2: 730 (Q50/V38)---> Does anyone know how to diminish those ...


I know this situation applies to GMAT, but what if ın TOEFL.
I chose a bubble on the last question, then timed out, could not click OK on the last question.
Is my answer visible ?
