The verbal section of the GMAT contributes to the 200-800 GMAT score. This section measures your English language skills such as your ability to:
Though this looks simple enough, the time constraints make the verbal section challenging for many students. The verbal section has 36 questions, which need to be answered in 65 minutes. So, on an average, you have 1 minute and 48 seconds to answer each question.
The verbal section is computer adaptive: this means that the difficulty level of each question changes based on your performance in the previous question. If a question is answered correctly, the difficulty level of the next question increases. On the other hand, if a question is answered incorrectly, the difficulty level decreases. You cannot skip any question, navigate to any other question, return to question or change an answer to any question in this section. You need to answer one question completely to move on to the next.

- Ishita PuriIt was last year, August, that a friend recommended Manya-The Princeton Review for my GMAT preparation. I had unsuccessfully attended a similar coaching institute earlier, but couldn’t adapt to their teaching method. Manya has a very exclusive, planned, and systematic approach for GMAT. They have various tried and tested techniques(such as prethinking-CR; PITA, plugging in etc-Quant) to tackle every type of question you will see on GMAT. The course first builds your basics. Then, according to your mock test scores, you get to attend the Booster sessions. Boosters are topic-oriented sessions, wherein further techniques and high-level questions are discussed. We are taught various tricks, which help to save time and energy on the exam. Boosters sessions are a must if you want to see an improvement in your score. The Test Analysis by the Booster teachers helps you identify your weak areas, implement pacing and improve test-taking practices. Without Boosters, I might have not seen an improvement of 80 points on my GMAT exam. Manya has a very sorted out, efficient, helpful, well-learned and informed team of teachers and managers. I am grateful to Manya and their team for supporting and guiding me throughout this journey.

- Agnidhra GhoshI initially joined Manya TPR to prepare for the GMAT, because I wasn't sure where to make my start. Manya TPR definitely helped the classes as well as materials serving as the base, and the tutors helping me shape out a time based plan for my GMAT date. Even though the entire world over, the spread of the novel Coronavirus put a spanner in the works of many a plan, my trainers made sure to reach over, via the internet, adapting to the new remote teaching style that the situation made necessary. Kudos to them for that, and for making sure they took time out to address any questions I had, in the limited time I had till my GMAT date. A big thanks to Manya TPR and the team for helping me get a decent GMAT score!

- Adwitya PatroHaving thought of pursuing my global MBA dream, I gave my first GMAT attempt, without much of preparation in December 2018, and was discouraged by receiving 610. Then I dropped my plans for sometime and was looking for some right mentorship. I took a break of 2 months and then went back to meet Manya Bhubaneswar Center, and seeing my perseverance to not get deterred by repeated failure, he persuaded Kolkata center to assign a booster faculty to me. This was the real turning point for me. I am thankful to my booster faculty, and his team for investing time and energy exclusively for me for a period of 15 days. In those 15 days, he reviewed my ESR and highlighted that although I am good at Quant. In my journey from 620 to 730 in GMAT, I thank Manya and a special thanks to my trainer. I wish he keeps on inspiring thousands of aspirants and be a role model of strong character to many youngsters like myself.

- Vibhav SharmaMy choice of joining The Princeton Review for my GMAT coaching has served me well. My experience with TPR has been excellent. The teachers not only did not restrict themselves to the set curriculum but also paid individual attention to my weaknesses. Even in the Covid times, when everything was uncertain, the teachers at TPR adapted well to the online way of learning. I found the booster sessions particularly beneficial for my preparation. The test analysis of mocks by my teachers identified my lapses and helped me tackle them skilfully. I'll recommend TPR to anyone starting their MBA journey.

- Agrim TanejaMy GMAT preparation at Manya- The Princeton Review was an amazing journey. I started my offline classes at the South ex centre just before the lockdown. But, Manya- TPR tackled the situation so well and quickly shifted to digital platform for the classes. The techniques that I learnt through the course and the booster sessions were extremely helpful in solving even the most complex problems of GMAT. Discussing test taking strategies along with continuous test analysis with my teachers turned out to be very useful. The guidance given by my teachers at Manya-TPR was very adept and motivating. I highly recommend Manya-TPR for GMAT preparation.
