Hi everyone,
any advice on what to do in the final days before the GMAT? I took my last CAT (GMATPrep) on Saturday. I have reviewed most of the test. I plan to go over the mistakes I made in that test again as well as the first GMATPrep test I took the week before. In the last two weeks my math scores have really gone up and my verbal has dropped a lot! What the heck!!!

1. going through OG and re-doing some of the harder problems I got wrong on my initial pass-thru of the book
2. reviewing error log and any concepts within still to be brushed up on.

My brain feels kind of saturated but I also want to do as much as I can in the next few days (test is Saturday). ADVICE anyone????

1. Defenitely my advice would be to NOT study a lot of new stuff. Just revise the PS/DS/CR/SC questions (if any) that you got wrong firdt time around. I suppose you have kept a log of those.
2. Go thru MGMAT SC book (if you have one) along with any notes (idioms/uasge rules...)
3. Review GMATPrep Errors. (If u can.. Search for "GMATPrep" in the Quant archives and solve 5DS/5PS questions first thing in the morning.)
4. Don't forget to review your AWA templates. You want to start off the test well...

Good luck!

Don't study the day before, and I agree, don't start anything new.

Review the verbal questions where you're slipping, but don't overload your brain and give yourself a break before test day.

Good luck!

seconding this. All I suggest doing is a few problems here and there to keep your mind on the subject, but dont try to sit and do exams or complicated problems.
