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:
So I borrowed the MGMAT books from a friend and did self-study for about 6 weeks. I was very diligent about studying the first 3-4 weeks, everyday for a few hours a day. The last couple of weeks I've been busy and only got in a few hours every other day or so.
I took 2 official GMAT practice tests this weekend...
1) 650 2) 690
I forgot my actual breakdowns but Q higher than V for sure. I looked at what I got wrong and the ones for Q were careless errors. I'm nervous that I just got "lucky" on a lot of V questions. Should I be seeing a score similar to what I'm getting on these practices?
I will be going through the 5 Manhattan tests just for practice. I'm hoping to score 700+...what do I need to best prepare myself for the little push? Should I just keep taking practice tests? Should I skim through and review all the material again?
Go through your practice tests to figure out what your weak sections are. Work from your weakest up (your weakest section is normally the limiting factor for your score). Keep and error log to help you overcome obstacles. _________________
MGMAT is a little skewed. But nonetheless a great source. A good thing going with you is the fact that the scores are consistent. Now, it's time to drill down. I see you haven't done that. I had gone to the extent of recording my practice tests with a screen caster to pin point my mistakes. Although, that's a bit extreme, it really worked wonders.
Studied my errors from my first 4 CAT tests. Took another MGMAT CAT and scored 650. Seems like my Q score is fluctuating slightly while my V is pretty much stagnant around 35. Pretty much seems like I'm stuck in the mid-600s on all my CATs with 1 test in 690.
Not sure how I feel about this. I really want to get into the 680-700 range but it seems like I just can't break through.
Not much improvement but at least I have generally been consistent. I really wanted to hit 700+ in a practice test so I would know that I'm at least capable on the actual test date. We'll see how this Saturday goes!
