5 days to go....what should I do??? [#permalink] New post 11 Jan 2007, 17:57
Hi,

I've got 5 days to go to GMAT. I have them off work. I've been preparing for the last 3.5 months. Scoring about 650 on GMAT Prep. Hoping to push this upto 680 on the day.

I've been working from OG 10th Edition mostly - Have been through it. I have got both the Kaplan and PR books but only used them to learn concepts and haven't practised the questions.

How should I approach the last 5 days......Need to puch the score up 30-40 points.

Thanks in advance, friends,

I'd suggest that you use the last 5 days to consolidate your strenghts and to get a sense of your weaknesses, so that on day of the test you'll be more careful on Qs that test your weak areas.

If the Kaplan book you have is the Verbal Workbook, it is a pity you havent worked through it. But if it is the Kaplan GMAT one, then I suppose you could still pick Qs at random and work them out.

I wouldnt advise more than 2 full tests in the last 5 days. The day before GMAT you need to relax.

Have a time strategy for each section (ie., how many Qs you should solve in how much time. Eg: For VA, I had 25-25-25 mins for 13-13-15 Qs.) and try it during the mocks... and decide on a strategy before the test. And stick to it!

Good luck on the GMAT! :)

I recommend doing the GMAT prep test (again if need be) a couple of times on the last day before the test. Would be good to spend the last day taking those 2 tests and get into the "GMAT" frame of mind.

Work on your timing now..last 3-4 days are critical to work on timing, especially for quantitiative. try to finish 40 math questions in 70 minutes. quantitiative is a good investment of time in the last 3-4 days.

I've got it on thursday.

Thanks for your best wishes.

One problem I've got is how to keep track of the timing in terms of what question I should be on at what time.

One way round this is to say at 30 mins I should have 15 questions left, so I should be on question 22. But I feel this is a bit cumbersome......anyone know any quicker ways.

Thanks
