650 on GMAC 2 and one week to go [#permalink] New post 08 Jun 2009, 20:01
Hi everyone I was wondering if anyone could help me develop a one week strategy to get the most out of my score. I took the GMAC exam number one about a week ago but did not count the score because I had seen many of the questions before. After that I continued to re-drill each quant and verbal section. Today I took the GMAC exam number two with the essays and scored a 650 43 Quant 36 Verbal. At this point I want to maximize my score but am having difficulty identifying the most practical way to do that in the next week without burning out. I noticed that on verbal I got six out of seventeen wrong-on critical reasoning i got 5 out of eleven wrong and on reading comprehension I got none wrong. Does anyone have any suggestions on the best way to spend my time studying for the next week. I would like to break 700 if that's possible and realize the only way to do that is to have a sound strategy. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Dan,

I don't think I have a good strategy but I can make a few recommendations based on what I did.

For verbal: If you have not read the Manhattan Sentence Correction guide I would suggest reading it once. That should help you. Other thing you can do to improve you verbal score is to get familiar with the idioms. Here are links to two online flashcards that I use

http://www.flashcardexchange.com/flashcards/view/800771

You can also use the beatthegmat flashcards as well as Manhattan GMAT flashcards which are available for free at the respective websites.

For CR I have a few notes let me see if I can find them. I'll pm you if I do.

On the Quant front..spend time reviewing the basics and make sure if you have those nailed down and then solve problems where you think you might still have weaknesses.

Good Luck.
