Friends,

I have found this forum very useful!

Need advice for last 3 weeks of GMAT Prep:

Have prepared for Verbal for last 2 weeks using Princeton Review Cracking and OG 11.

Scores from practice GMATs:
Powerprep 1 760 (Q51, V41)
Princeton Review 1 750 (Q51, V43)
Powerprep 2 760 (Q49, V44)

3 weeks to GMAT! Any advice on how to move up to reach my Dream Score of 780+ ?

Plan to study - Kaplan 800, OG Verbal Supplement, Manhattan SC.
Anything else you would recommend? Strategies?

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

I think the three basic things you should do are:

- Take GMATPrep 1 and 2, it will give you a more accurate picture.
- Get OG Verbal and Math reviews and do the problems (at least the second half of the problems in each section)
- Buy access to at least 5 of the Challenges available through this forum and see how well you are doing on them.

Update: GMATPrep 1 770 (Q51, V42)

Thanks for the advice. I realised how important it is to use GMATPrep - the qns were tougher than PowerPrep.

Word of Advice: I realized that the mouse can 'slip' - so we need to be very careful when we click Confirm!

Also want to spend more time on the essays now - not made much progress

Great score, very promising.

Take the second one in a week or so. Knowing that those two tests are the most representative simulations of the real test, I took the first one at the start of my preparation and saved the second one for one week before my test date. However, what I didn't realize is that by doing the 1000s and questions on this forum I had acquainted myself with at least half of the GMATPrep #2 questions. In other words, wasted it... I got 49,44 on it but my verbal is definitely not a 44-level.

Search the forums and see if you can get "the sets". Imo, they have questions similar to the real ones, however, you won't see them on GMATPrep 1 or 2. Also, practice stamina.

You should be fine. You obviously have a good grip on everything.

I guess I should have reviewed my mistakes right after the exam.

I can't review the answers to GmatPrep1. When I click on Practice Test 1, a new test begins - with new questions! (I found Powerprep much simpler!)

Thanks.

When you exit the application once you are done, it asks you whether you want to leave it "unfinished" so that you can resume and review later on. You get a dialog box and you have to click YES. I guess this is where you clicked NO:) You will have to redo the exam :)

I think do some LSAT CR and RC...and understand why you missed them
You are already at the top for math
All depends on what your weakness are on verbal
Focus on those

Are my scores sinking, or is Kaplan 800 Verbal very tough?
