Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Have a social sciences background, and have been out of school for about 2 years. I had the most difficulty with the verbal section - the MGMAT guides were great for that, fabulous explanations of SC/CR.
My study materials:
1. Manhattan GMAT practice tests 2. MGMAT Q challenge problems 3. Veritas OnDemand online course; 5 tests 4. OG, OG Q, OG V 5. Arco practice tests (came with Veritas) 6. 800score practice tests (came with Veritas)
I learn best through lots of repetition/practice so I spent a lot of time doing practice tests/problems over the course of a few months. Let me know if I can answer any questions, Good luck, AC.

With regards to the tests: I though the MGMAT helped the most - best in range of question difficulty, answer explanations, variety of questions, tips/tricks. The Veritas tests were great for math, mediocre for verbal and had limited answer explanations (not helpful for someone like me). The 800score were fairly difficult for math (always ran out of time) and way too easy for verbal. The Arco was easier than MGMAT, Veritas and the actual test itself....
I didn't actually follow the MGMAT RC/CR technique - I was getting too caught up in taking notes and not being able to finish in time. I made sure to learn the grammar rules for all the SC questions from their practice tests - they seemed to be a good representation of common mistakes.
