What tests have you been taking? I would ignore all the other scores except for the GMAT prep. What is your breakdown like?

Since you're so close to the test I would focus on the areas where you are a little weak, not the areas where you are really weak. You can make a lot of progress in those areas in a short period of time.

The best suggestion I can give you is find out where you are weak and strategically focus on certain areas. If you are terrible at geometry, then I would say screw it, don't worry about it. I think I got one geometry question.

If you are pretty good at primes and factors, for example, then spend your time becoming REALLY good at it.

Good luck!

Wow! Nice math scores. Your verbal score must be quite low for you to get less than a 700 with that quant score. What are your weak areas? SC? RC? CR?

So I took the one that included the classroom recordings (self-study PLUS).

In all you get:

- 9 x 3h classroom recordings (they cover an SC topic on each one plus other topics)
- 9 x 1.5h labs (teaches various techniques: timing, estimating, guessing)
- access to "challenge problems", which I only looked at briefly (REALLY tough questions)
- you get 2x30min one-on-one with an instructor (by phone, which I never used)
- you get a marker and scrap paper sheet that are identical to the ones provided on the real test
- you get access to an online timing tool (it allowed you to record answers and the times, I just used a stopwatch)
- you get both an argument and a issue essay marked with feedback (quality feedback too)
- get a SUPER handy excel spreadsheet that tracks your work with OG11 (this was actually one of the better tools, your answers can be sorted by time, question type, etc, really handy when you want to see what you're good at and what needs work)
- you get an excel spreadsheet that outlines the work you need to do over the 9-weeks

Overall, I was very impressed with the MGMAT course. I think it covers everything you'd need to know to break 700. And if you're looking for an even higher score, especially in quant, I think you'll find the resources you need too.

Hi nogning! Could you pls. share some of the math exercises you had on the test? Many tks in advance, Lw

Here are my practice test scores and the real thing...

3/2/2008 KAPLAN 640 (Q40, V41)
3/22/2008 MGMAT 690 (Q38, V45)
3/29/2008 PR 660 (Q43, V39)
4/13/2008 MGMAT 640 (Q40, V37)
4/26/2008 MGMAT 650 (Q44, V35)
5/11/2008 GMATPrep 740 (Q46, V46)
5/29/2008 MGMAT 430 (Q44, V4) (skipped verbal)
5/31/2008 GMATPrep 760 (Q49, V45)
6/17/2008 GMAT 720 (Q47, 81%; V42, 95%, 95% overall) AWA 6.0

As you can see, my verbal took a hit on the real thing compared to the GMATprep scores. The quant difficulty seemed to be right in line with GMATprep, but the verbal was definitively harder. CR and SC were the same, but I thought the RC questions were more difficult. Then again, it might have been the exhausting pace (it's harder doing the real thing vs. the GMATprep in your house). Timing was right on the mark, I had about 2 mins left on the last question for both sections.

I took the 9-week, self-study MGMAT prep course. I thought it was great. A ton of information, everything you could possibly need to know to get a great score.

Either way, my goal was to crack 700 and get at least 80 percentile in each section, so I'm done.

The one thing that helps the most is having a timing and guessing strategy. There were a couple questions in the quant section that would have taken me 2 minutes to comprehend let alone solve. Knowing when to cut your losses and make the best out of your guess is key.

I'd be happy to answer any questions....

The typical stuff. I had one, pretty hard combinatorics question. One very tough geometry question and a couple easier ones. One sequence question. A few DS questions that concerned remainders (x + 5 is divisible by 6, is x divisible by 5?).

Nothing that you won't find in OG11.
