Where are you short? If it’s quant, use target test prep

Both quant and verbal need to come up quite a bit

I’d still advise target test prep for quant. If you’re a native English speaker then I think familiarizing yourself with OG questions could be your best bet. What on verbal is giving you issues?

SC is the death of me. Rc and cr are fine. Quant needs to come up quite a bit. Target test prep sounds like a good option? Do they have verbal content?

They don’t. Honestly—-just doing the question bank of sentence correction from the OG helped immensely. After a while you start to see the formula they’re after
