2 Days left. Should I write that last CAT test or...? [#permalink] New post 19 Nov 2011, 07:26
So it's Saturday morning, and I have my GMAT on Monday morning, or approximately 48-ish hours. There are lots of posts and guides that talk about what to do on the last day before the exam. But what about the day before the last?

I am wondering if there is anything to be gained by writing a last CAT test today. I have already done 5 Manhattan CATS and 2 GMAT prep. There is 1 Manhattan test I haven't touched yet. I could also always redo the GMATPrep tests.

Or is it better spent going over my error logs from the OG, last minute Idiom brushing up, maybe a last look at those geometry formulas that haven't come up in practice problems for a while?

A CAT will take 4 hours out. I don't intend to do much on my last day (anyways, I have to go to my best friend's birthday bash, so I won't get much in even if I wanted to).

The last CAT I wrote was on Wednesday, or 3 days ago (GMAT Prep - with AWA).

Any advice? The nervous pangs are starting to creep in.

I would do the brushing up (don't kill yourself though) and take the test on Sun. Organize your notes, thoughts, ideas, questions you hate/love, etc.
After you take the test, do a quick review (not more than an hour) and then take the rest of the day off.
Try taking the practice test same time as your real test will be on Mon.

Thanks bb. I think I will do that as well, considering I haven't actually ever written a test at the time I have scheduled for my Gmat (8 am). I suppose I can knock one back before the party and relax in the afternoon-evening.
