750 on the GMAT in one month [#permalink] New post 21 Jul 2013, 21:03
I completed my GMAT 2 hours ago. I scored a 750 (50 Q, 41 V) 98th percentile overall. I achieved this score with less than one month in preparation.

The following was my study plan:

1) Complete OG questions - all of them including the Verbal and Quant only books
2) Manhattan Sentence correction guide

I took 4 practice tests in all -

710 - First GMAC test - prior to preparation
720 - Second GMAC test - 1 week into preparation
640 - First MGMAT test - 2 week into preparation
760 - Repeat GMAC test - 3 week into preparation

My takeaways are:
1) Don't spend time on solving the most difficult questions - spend time in avoiding silly mistakes
2) Don't take MGMAT tests - the real test is nowhere near that level and it only demoralizes you
3) Play to your strengths, not your weaknesses - for example - I am not particularly strong in sentence corrections - so I made sure, I didn't make any mistakes in RC and CR.

Congrats on your score!
How was SC & RC when compared to OG or GMATPrep?

Both sections were standard difficulty. I did get a lot of SC compared to RC/CR though.

Thanks - heard from lot of people in the forum that it is much tougher in the actual GMATprep and OG level

I didn't find it exceptionally difficult. RC in fact was possibly easier

I practiced CR from OG and from verbal OG. Manhattan actually has a fairly comprehensive CR methodology and their explanations are better. But I think that you should be fine with the OG practice.
