20 days left for GMAT [#permalink] New post 26 Mar 2012, 05:29
I need to plan my study for coming 20 days. I have GMAT appointment on 17th April. I have completed below material.
OG-12 ( twice),
Verbal review (once)
LSAT -10 sets (RC), and 2 sets (CR)
Study material: Manhattan maths and SC, CR (Powerscore LSAT bible and some chapters from Manhattan)

My Latest scores:

GMAT prep( v1) Test1: 640 (V-26, Q-50) on 26th Feb
Knewton Free Test: 650 (V-33, Q-46) on 18th March
GMAT prep (V1) Test2: 720 (V-38, Q-50) on 25th March

Target: 700

Can someone please suggest me how should I plan my studies for rest of days to achieve at least 700 in GMAT? I am thinking to start practicing on 700-800 questions bank. Is it right to do at this time or shall I practice on some other material.

Please advise.

I'm also at the same stage of prep.. Doing the GMAT on 4/14 so I am in eat, drink, breathe, sleep, dream GMAT mode... (Although I have a full time job also)..

My recommendation is to do MGMAT tests and OG material (even though i see you have done the OG stuff twice.. May be worthwhile for you to get OG13 for the extra new questions (there is a post that details the exact number of new questions)

Verbal is more of a limiting factor for you.

Do you know what sections of verbal are giving you the most trouble? Your quant score is in a safe range for 700+.

Thanks mohater!

I think you have asked a right question.

I am finding RC tough. Please find below the details description of Verbal scores in my last three mock tests
GMAT prep1: (640, V26) RC 7/11, SC 11/15, CR 8/12
Knewton Free test:(650, V33) RC 4/13, SC 11/14, CR 10/14
GMAT prep2:(720, V38) RC 12/14, SC 11/16, CR 8/11 ( Given in complete official conditions- both essays and proper breaks)

When I practiced RC from OG, Verbal an even from some of the LSAT sets, my accuracy was more than 90%. But I don't know why I am unable to concentrate on RC in mock tests. In GMAT prep 2 I was determined that I will complete RC with good accuracy even if I had to run short of time for rest of the questions. But luckily I could finish verbal part, 2 minutes before the allotted time without hurrying up. I did not spent more than approx 25-26 minutes on RC(4 passages) though.

Please let me know if any more information needed on the same.

Are you running into timing problems when doing the real test? Many people report no issue doing practice problems but not doing practice problems in a timed environment.

Your SC could also use some work are also a little wobbly, my guess is on the 600+ problems. LSAT problems are typically reserved for folks who need more advanced material.

Have you seen the timing thread?

I use Manhattan time strategy for RC, short passage(3 questions)- 6-7 minutes, long passage(4 questions) 8-9 minutes. In normal practice my accuracy is 90% on an average with this timing. I did not get your point on SC, do I need to improve more on this front. If yes what material I can use to proceed on?

Thanks for your help.
