Hi harish, Over and above what Brent has mentioned, I have a simple 3-step strategy for improving GMAT Verbal scores: Step 1: You seem to have been overly worried about the rules and not practiced enough. But good news is that you realize it :) So maybe you should look at solving all the questions i...

Hi Deepthi, Sorry to hear that you did not score as well as you would have liked :( It is always upsetting - I understand. Here are a couple of things I would like you to focus on: 1) Right now your focus is to get to the 60th %ile in both quant and verbal i.e. Q44 and V31. This would give you a sco...

There is a semantic difference between the 2. If the principal suggested the 2 things together then I would use the 1st form i.e. "The coach suggested that the batter strike the ball well and run very fast". If the principal suggested the 2 things independently then you can use the 2nd form i.e. "Th...

The best way to gauge where you are is by taking a full-length test from MBA.com - the GMATPrep: www.mba.com/the-gmat/download-free-test-preparation-software.aspx Also I noted that you mentioned your accuracy to perhaps indicate your level. Accuracy is a poor measure. I would suggest the following: ...

I finished the entire test and all of the quant was easy for me and even though I say easy I could have gotten a lot of them wrong. I can't spend another 250 dollars though. I also was trying to take some practice test before I took the actual test but the woman in my apartment wouldn't let me prac...

A Q-50 V-45 (your current range) should give you a 770 so really no need to worry if you are applying to a bschool. After a point there is only so much you can do as you are already in the 99th percentile :) In anycase, even with the improvement you seek i.e. Q50 ->51 and V 45->48 your score will on...

I will agree with vomhorizon here. I think you need to take a step back and look at how you can improve your English instead of GMAT Verbal. I think you can start by reading some good books such as those written by Malcolm Gladwell. Along with it, pick up a good quality magazine - my personal recomm...


Hi, I suggest you orient your compass. Since you know where you need to get to (i.e. final score close to 700) you should look at where you are now. Here is what I suggest: 1. Download the GMATPrep and take one of the 2 full length tests to serve as a diagnostic test of your current status: http://w...

Hi, Given your Quant percentiles, my first reaction is "Are your concepts clear?". Most times it is the basic concepts that trouble people at a sub 40-raw score on the GMAT. You can consider adding these 2 resources to your prep plan: http://www.manhattangmat.com/storeitemshow.cfm?ItemID=521&catid=1...

It turns out that sometimes by guessing randomly at the last few questions, you lose more by getting those questions wrong than you would if you hadn't finished the test at all. Because question selection is unpredictable (sometimes the last few questions will be easy, and guessing those incorrectl...
