Hi all,

I was just wondering how to go about planning for the next 18 days. My exam is on the 29th of October.

So far I have taken 5 Exams.

MGMAT 1: 740 (Q47 V44) <------ Sept 30th
MGMAT 2: 720 (Q47 V42) <----- October 1st
GMATPrep test 1: 740 (Q50 V40) <---- October 2nd

MGMAT 3: 750 (Q48 V45) <----- Oct 5th
GMATPrep test 2: 760 (Q50 V44) <----- Oct 8th

The two GmatPrep tests were 2005-2006 version. I have the new gmatprep versions left to take and 3 MGMAT tests left.

Also if anyone has any tips to help me push my scores into the 770-780 range that would be greatly appreciated.

It sounds like you have the skills to do it. A big thing will be being in the optimal mindset on test day. I would maybe take just one more practice test before the real thing because you don't want to get overly worried and focused on your practice test scores. Make sure you do very, very light studying (if any at all) the day before the test, get a great night of sleep the night before, and don't do anything too outside of your normal routine on test day. If you are relaxed, not nervous at all, and sharply focused on test day, you will ensure you do your best. Also, don't worry during the test if you feel like you are missing questions. This doesn't necessarily mean anything bad at all. Just maintain a relaxed, stoic demeanor during the test and you will do well.

Thanks IJR!

I have the 2 gmatpreps left to take so I plan on taking one this weekend and the other next weekend then spend the following 5 days relaxing and doing a light 30 minute review each day... DOING NOTHING GMAT RELATED THE DAY BEFORE THE EXAM... Light review the morning of for 30 minutes then taking my exam at 3 PM...

Finished my 2nd run thru of the MGMAT quant guides... I wish there were more advanced geometry concepts in the book, but I'm guessing that combining several basic concepts will suffice... I think I'm pretty much good on verbal and will do whatever I've been doing since the beginning (mostly nothing). I've finished every single verbal portion with at least 15 minutes to spare, so I'll just try to slow down during that portion on my next GMATPrep on Saturday. Hopefully I can get a 780 this weekend!

Took the new GMATprep 1 Today and got a 770 (Q50 V44)

I guess I'm ready for the exam. Any deviation in score from this point will most likely be psychological. I will take GMATPrep 2 next Saturday then relax the week of my exam.

I got a 730 (Q49 V40)...I'm content. Plus, Everyone is telling me that it's not worth it to retake it so I'm just gonna let that score stand.

Sounds like together,we would have gotten that 760+ :)

I just took mine today and got a 730 also - Q44 V46.

My last two GMAT Prep tests were 750 in the range of Q49 V42.
