Advice needed on my study plan. [#permalink] New post 04 Apr 2013, 23:03
Hi all,

I would like to get some feedback and suggestions on my GMAT Preparation.
I am now in my 4th week of preparation and not sure how to proceed.
In my first week I worked through the Math-Basics in the OG13 and took the free MGMAT CAT with the following result:
MGMAT CAT: 630 (44Q, 32V) which resulted in a 63(Q) and 64(V) and 72(Overall) percentile.

Since then I spent my time doing the Quant Section in the Kaplan Premiere and yesterday i took the GmatClub Math Diagnostic with a result of 26/45. (improvement???) Actually I think that I have to start with the verbal part now but I dont feel comfortable with some of the math concepts (combination e.g.).
I have 6 more weeks to study and I actually planned to do the OG questions and some CATs in the last 3-4 weeks and habe all the strategies and concepts covered untill then. My target score is 680.
How would you advise me to study? Suggestions?

Cheers,

HI,

Can you brief us about the books you are using for quant and verbal. For SC,CR and RC?
achieving 680 from 630 wont be too tough a deal i guess if you follow the proper resource

For the verbal part I want to use the Kaplan Premier (RC, CR) + MGMAT for SC. As I am an international student i assume the verbal will be the most challenging for me and especially my grammar needs to be brushed up. Are those two books enough to meet my demands?

Hi,

I personally used the books mentioned in the below link.

At the end of my preparation i was confident in SC and CR atleast. RC was a gamble anyways!
Hope it helps!

Thanks for the advice mate. I spend the last time to study the concepts for the verbal part and found the Kaplan approach for CR alright but I think the RC concpet is not suited to my english skills and too time-wasting as I can hardly read and draw a passage map in under 4-5 minutes. For a passage with 3 question waaaay too much. Did you find that concept helpful or how did u improve your RC?
Cheers!
