Hi,

I am in the same boat as you and have been going through a lot of forums and suggestions by others. I am unable to post links since I am new, but you can go to the GMAT -> Build your study plan link at the top of the page.

It has a 3 month study plan and it can be stretched to 4 months based on your study plan.

Hope it helps and Good luck!

this is my plan so far:

for the first 3 months i'm going to go through the 8 mgmat guides, alternating between math and verbal books, and doing the og math and og verbal. i will also do some gmatclub challenges.

for the 4th month i'm going to do og 12 and finish the gmatclub challenges.

i will probably do cat's every week starting in month 2 or 3.

If I could go back and talk to myself when I first began studying I would say this. Don't skimp on cost, but chances are a course will not be helpful if you want 700+.

Learn about the basics of the test, questions types, timing etc.

As for materials:

-I'd get the whole MGMAT series to help you cover the basics and get your footing. It comes with the online questions and the adaptive CAT practice tests.

-OG 12 obviously
-OG Quant and verbal for extra practice on official questions.

-Pick up an LSAT "10 offical prep test" book for extra practice with difficult RC and CR.

-Become a regular on GC.com forum so you can eventually unlock access to the tests.

-Additionally you can pick up the MGMAT challenge set.

Very comprehensive, but thats just me.

My biggest tip is to start your studying with one of your strengths. For me that was RC/CR. When you work up your strengths and are confident that you'll do well in that one area first it helps build momentum in your studies to tackle your weaker areas. Also, if you do your weaker areas first you may begin to forget concepts as you move on to other things and get closer to the test.

hope it helps

Thanks a ton guys . this is surely going to help me..but i still have some doubts ..here are they:

1. Should i do like complete one section first and then jumb to the other? like math first and then verbal or viceversa? or switch between sections frequently?
2. Should i start with OG or with some other course like Kaplan , manhattan? I have heard that one should thoroughly go through OG. So where should I fit OG?
3. When should i start taking test? like 2nd month or something? After I am done with reading both the sections from one material atleast?
