10 Days left before the test! [#permalink] New post 06 Aug 2012, 16:25
Hi guys,

In 10 days is my test.

I took the GMAT Prep Test 1 last week and scored 640 (8/12 incorrect answers for IR, V32 and Q46).

I have been focusing on Quantitative because I had some troubles with arithmetic. I am now quite good at it.

My real weaknesses are IR (even if I think it is quite easy to improve). Do you have any sample questions I could take? I only have 48 questions so far.

Then I would like to improve SC and CR... I think that I need to practice and practice again... What's the most efficient way to practice? I am taking 10 questions of each and then reviewing the one where I made a mistake... Is there any more efficient method?

Do you think I can get the 700 I am targetting?

Thanks a lot.

Hi,

SC-> You can watch thursdays with Ron! It will definetly help you improve your SC!
CR -> IF you have done powerscore CR book then i guess just go and revise it.
RC -> watch Thursdays with ROn videos for this too.

IR -> I have no idea!

Quant-> Just revise teh concepts. Resolve the OG problems and you should be good to go. Remeber one thing in GMAT: Quations are not tough! They are "TRICKY"!

General Advice:
1. Be calm!
2. Never ever think about the previous question!
3. Even if you screw IR then don't let that thing bother you in Quant and same in Verbal!
4. Have faith and be confident! GMAT depends on some concepts. Its not rocket science afterall!

Good Luck. Hope it helps!

Hi Ankit,
I am stuck in same situation.GMAT near ,and my scores are stagnant.I used to perform good in quant and that has faded off too,due to more concentration on my verbal weaknesses.Result,verbal score is the same but quant has dropped too.
What should i review in last 10 days?
Formulaes and all,or should i revise OG Too..?
Should i revise the OG Verbal/quant guides too?? Given that i have few days left,what all should i cover to ensure am back on track?

In General,

In the last few days of your preperation it is suggested that you should:
1. Revise all the formulas and theory you have done
2. Revise OG : make sure you get the concept / trap behind the problem (take your time, dont try to rush through things)
3. Don't give many tests. Give 1/2 GMAT Prep test.
4. Sit and revise your mistakes from previous tests and make sure you learn from it ( iw ill suggest revise all the correct answers also)

hope it helps!
Good luck!

Hi
For IR, try solving the question that comes with OG 13....Moreover the new gmat prep pack too has some 40 questions for IR.
Do not worry too much about IR.

Hi,

I know it's too late to reply on this thread. However, GMAT test requires comprehensive preparation. I would suggest you to devote 3-4 hrs. daily and try to write mock tests everyday.

Wish you good luck!!

Regards
Erina
