Clinpsyc01 Posted November 18, 2015 Share Posted November 18, 2015 I took the GRE recently and got 164 verbal, 158 quant, and a 4 on writing. I'd like to improve my score because I'm applying to some very competitive programs next year. My writing score was by far my lowest section, but I'm not worried about improving that- I didn't prepare enough last time, and I got about 3 hours of sleep the night before the exam. Not exactly conducive to writing good essays under time constraints. I'm most concerned about improving my quant score. I started off scoring 145-150 on practice tests and now consistently score in the high 150s, but I'm not sure if I'm capable of breaking 160. Ideally, I'd like to score in the low 160s. I only used the 5 lb. book and practice tests to study, so would Magoosh help me raise my score by a few points? Also, how can I improve verbal? I didn't study at all for verbal beyond taking a few practice tests. Is it worth my time to memorize vocabulary lists? I already read quite a few scientific articles and novels, so I don't know if I can improve my comprehension. Is there a way? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
