congrats forcefeed.

I was wondering if you could answer a few of questions I had.

1) I am using the MGMAT study material too. Did you read all the strategy guides first and then start working on the OG problems or did you finish a book (eg - Number Properties) and worked on the OG problems the books list at the back?

2) Also, did you work on the problems in the PR & Kaplan 800 simultaneously (along with OG problems?)

3) Was Diagramming helpful for you in CR?

Thank You very much and congrats once again.

Praj-

1) I read all the books at one time and only used the practice questions in the books. Afterwards I went through OG11.

2) I don't remember the exact order I went in, but I think I did all of PR first, then Kaplan800, and finally OG11.

3) I am not familiar with diagramming, so I am guessing I didn't do it. For the CR problems I basically read the question, read the prose, prephrased a question and then checked the given answers.

For CR I pretty much just did practice sets. One thing to remember is the inference questions are looking for the slightest of inferences. If you think one of the answers is pretty much stated and not inferred, that is probably the right answer.

Hey Forcefeed can u asnwer the following :

1) Are the MGMAT tests comparable to the GMATPrep ? I took one of their tests and got a 31 on the verbal .. Their logic seems way different from the GMATPrep esp on CR and RC.

2) I have an issue with SC. A lot of times i realise I am down to 2 responses but I choose the wrong one. (maybe time i dont know) Is there any way to remedy that ?

3) I am making stupid mistakes on the math... calculation errors or just dumb errors.. Its like I know how to do the problems but I make a mistake and it gives me the wrong answer. How do I remedy this ? Esp on word problems .


4) I have about 2 weeks to go. i am done with the OG guide .. what should be my strategy from here on out ?

1) I would say they are fairly comparable. My scores on MGMAT cats were similar to GMATPrep & the actual GMAT.

2) I think that will come with more practice. Does it seem like there is a common error that you always miss on? It might mean you need to practice a specific topic more.

3) I was making stupid errors, I stopped that by writing down the specifics the question gives you, i.e. positive, even, integer, etc.

4) Practice CATs and reviewing your error log.

Are you still on the WL? Good luck with getting a late admit, there is another board member that just got accepted to Cornell recently.

A few more points on the GMAT could have you piling up UE admits!
