10 Days to GMAT, What Should I focus on? [#permalink] New post 12 Jun 2008, 20:21
Hello,
I'm taking the exam on the 24th of June.
I'm thinking of hitting the GMATClub Challenges, what do you think?

I'm focusing on my error log, RC and stamina....so I have my weak areas covered. My weakest area here is timing
Last GMATPrep I got Q 43, V 31, my main issue is timing. verbal has varied from 31-40.

What else should I focus on?

Thanks,
Ali

Ali,

In Quant identify your weak area and see if you are missing any concept. If you could identify 2 or 3 weak topics, you would take your score to around 48.

In Verbal, I do not think we could gain significantly in a week. However, try to work on some LSAT CR and RC monitoring your time and try to improve by 1 minute for every 12 questions. Once you achieve try 1 more min. Don't be tense while working, take things easy.

Hope this helps.

Great advice Vishy, makes lots of sense.

Thanks!

I'd disagree about verbal.

If RC is your weakness, then I agree you can't do much in 1 week.
However, if CR or SC is your weak area, then you can do A LOT in 1 week. I brought my SC hit rate up from ~33 % to ~70%, and increased my verbal from 41 to 44. I know that doesn't sound like much, but its a good amount in terms of percentile.

For Quant, like the poster above said, identify a few weak areas and strengthen them.
I believe that if anyone is scoring below a 46-48 raw on the quant, that means they should focus more on the core principles behind the math questions, and not on tricks/strategies (assuming you're aiming for a 48+). After you get to 48+ then its more about practicing your timing/strategies/tips to help you go from 48 to 50/51.

Good luck
