Would love some advice! In appx 88 days i'm taking the GMAT for the second time. I've located my weaknesses how-not-to-get-610-q42-v33-in-your-gmat-102453.html
and have (hopefully) got my self off to a better start this time around.
However, i've got a lot of material and I would appreciate peoples advice on what should take priority over the next few months. I don't want to expend energy inefficiently on the wrong material at the wrong times like I did the last time.
This time around I have 2 hours each weekday, and 5 on each weekend day. I have the following to prepare with:
Used for first try and will have again for second try:
- 8 Mgmat guides
+ foundation maths guide - did each only once (not enough really)
- Gmat Pill
SC videos by Zeke - again, only watched once, didn't use properly
- Chineseburned AWA guide
- 0G 12th edition
- MGMAT 4 CATS + 2 GMAT prep CATS
This time around (in addition to the above) I have:
- Signed up for Knewton course
- just started last week
- OG 12th
edition (bought again - fresh start)
- Verbal review 2nd ed
- Quant review 2nd ed
- GMAT Club grammar book
- Sc grail + associated question bank
- Will be getting more involved in the gmat club forum! Maths & Verbal. DS especially.
- Have 2 Mgmat CATS, 6 Knewton
, and some GMAT Prep ones also to do
It seems like a lot to me! I don't want to waste my time. I don't know what to expect from Knewton
and how much I should compliment that course material with the additional stuff. Does the below basic plan seem doable?
In order of priority1. Knewton
classes - homework - studying notes - 6 CATS when scheduled2.
8 MGMAT guides
with end of chapter and OG 12th
questions - when not doing Knewton
SC grail notes/GMAT Pill
videos for SC/Gmatclub grammar guide
Last 30 days of study:
- Verbal and Quant OG
reviews - complete all questions - work on trouble areas
- 2 MGMAT CATS + 2 GmatPrep CATS
From your experience, would you add/remove or switch the priorities of anything? Also, is it still very beneficial to keep an error log
when using Knewton
? It's adaptive course is supposed to take the grunt work out of maintaining an error log
. I just don't know whether I should use this as a substitute for a manually kept error log
