First off, would like to thank everyone on this site for all of the helpful tools and study plan advice that have really helped me advance in my GMAT studies.

I am currently 2 weeks from my test day (August 18) and I am looking to score a 750+. I have been studying alot since May (roughly 20 hours a week), and have gone through all of the Manhattan Guides and Official Guide books (OG 13 and Verbal and Quant Reviews). I have taken 4 practice tests over the 4 month time period and here are my respective scores (these are all Manhattan CAT's):

6/3 - 630 (Q44, V 32)

6/26 - 640 (Q43, V34)

7/26 - 680 (Q43, V39)

8/5 - 710 (Q42, V45)

I was wondering what my study strategy should be for the next 2 weeks as I have gone through all the MGMAT books and all the Oguide questions. I realize a jump from 710 -> 750 is rather large, but I feel that it may be possible.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Based on MGMAT Score u can able to get 47/48 in Quant. And verbal i think will be in range of 35-39. BTW have u taken Gmatprep. It will provide u a good estimate.

In this 2 weeks focus on all OG 12/13 Questions and analyze all ur errors.

I have taken a GMATPrep during the beginning of the summer and scored a 640. I am planning on taking the other GMATPrep next week. Do you suggest that I dive deeper into Verbal to try to get the estimated score of 35-39 up to a 40+?

It will be a great thing if u can cross the 40 barrier. Btw if u focus on DS it will also help u to improve in Q and u may add up 1 or 2 points in Q. Try to secure 48 minimum in Q to achieve ur 750 Score. Q48 means u need V44 or V45 in verbal to make up that 750.

The biggest mistake people do is to take the GMATPrep mock in the beginning and in the end - very close to the test day. Sometimes it turns out detrimental and they are two days away from test that they cannot even reschedule. Only GMATPrep will be indicative of what your test scores will be. Other tests are just for practice and improve testing experience. What's the point of taking the test at the last moment - it either increases your confidence level or bring it down to zero. You cannot change anything much after that. Instead taking the GMATPrep tests intermittently will help you improve your content knowledge with whatever time available.

Take a GMATPrep now.
Don't take any tests three days before the D day.
Keep your preparation to minimal in the last three days.
Stay away from GMAT before the test day, do something you enjoy - movies, games, dinner etc
Review a lot - use your error log/flash cards.
If you are facing timing problem - pick a strategy and put it in use.
Get to know your strengths and weaknesses.
Don't learn anything new other than honing what you have already learnt.

Thanks for all the responses guys, I guess I'll take another GMATPrep on Thursday and decide what to study from there. As of now, I am going to focus on going over the O-Guide problems.
