I'd recommend that you retake the GMAT again as your score 610 is too low for getting any good B-school. For improving your verbal score you should do these things:- 1. For RC- practice 5 RC daily keeping a time of 7-8 times per RC. 2. For SC- read the Manhattan books completely and watch Thursdays ...

Manhattan books are quite good for basics....You should also solve questions of OG to see where you stand.

1. Since the line reflected around the x axis contains point (3,-4), so the actual line should pass through (3,4). [Mirror reflection of the point around X-axis.] Now, for the line to pass though (5,4), it should have a zero slope since it is already passing through (3,4). But our question states th...

Hello Sudha,
I recommend you watch "Thursdays with Ron" videos. You can google it out. You can choose the sentence correction topics. Concentrate on Sentence Structure, Modifiers and Parallelism. You will do great.

Also, I would recommend you practice 5 questions of RC daily for improving your RC.

Depends upon what your level is. What score are you getting in mocks? If you are getting around 44 or more then probably you should refer to something more advanced.
