Hey guys, so after lurking around for a while and trying to find stories/tips to help me, I think it's time to just ask for help directly...So can you guys please give me some advice to help me hit the famous 700?
- MGMAT CAT 1: 510 (Q24, V35) --> obv quant sucked
- MGMAT CAT 2 (after going through all Manhattan GMAT
strategy guides and benchmark questions): 660 (Q43, V37)
- MGMAT CAT 3 (2 days after CAT 2): 630 (Q41, V35)
- I had less than one month to prepare for my GMAT and I'm taking the GMAT on Dec 11 (OMG that's in less than 2 weeks...trying not to freak out)
- For the first 2 weeks of my GMAT prep, I went through all the Manhattan GMAT
strategy guides and did the benchmark questions in the OG
- I can take a few days off before the GMAT
- I should note that I'm not really a nervous test-taker...I'm a lawyer and have studied for the bar which was way more stressful and tiring, but I can't stop feeling like an idiot for not being able to do high school math problems...WTF
- Is it possible to do too many CATs in 2 weeks? I was planning on doing a CAT or GMATprep each 2 days for the next 10 days till my exam...but I noticed that was feeling really tired when I did my 3rd CAT today (2 days after I did CAT 2).
- Obviously my quant is low, but I've already gone through the strategy guides. How can I improve my score? Should I just sit and do questions in the OG? Should I do timed sets without looking at the answers till the end or should I do each question one by one with the answer?
- Is it normal to get a lower score (I went from 660 to 630)? Should I be worried?
- How do you know when it's time to skip a question? I usually figure it out when I'm taking over 2 mins...
- Knowing that I'm not really a nervous test-taker (I hope I didn't just jinx myself), is the MGMAT and GMATprep scores reflective of what I will get on my actual GMAT?
- Can someone please give me some hope that it's possible to hit 700 in less than 2 weeks? I like reading those stories about people who barely worked and got a 770, but I'm not one of those...I'm willing to put in the work, but I guess I just need some hope
Thank you so much!
