Hi guys

I've no problems to solve the quant part but I'm not a native english speaker. I'm on B2 Level in English. This is the reason why I face very much problems to understand the verbal and other parts of gmat in english. How can I improve my english for the gmat? Any suggestions or recommendations? My goal is to score 700 and above

Thanks very much!

As with most things GMAT, I would strongly recommend the gmatclub forum ( There are several good posts that introduce the verbal disciplines (, as well as several thousand practice questions. In your particular case, I would recommend focusing on the Sentence Correction (SC) questions. SC is very formulaic (you check for parallelism, modifiers, idioms, ...) and the question type favors quant-proficient people.

Good luck!

Dear A!

The best option for you would be to hire a GMAT tutor, who would practice all exercises with you.

To add on top of what has been said, the best is to practice, practice, practice!

In concrete, with tests, so you can also time yourself, get used to the format, etc.

There are free exams in the internet that you can use for practice (the one of LBS MBA page, Verits prep, as well as some free trials for courses such as the one of The Economist (

The key to success here is not only get practice, but learn techniques.

Hope it helps!
