Look into the basics - arithmetic and grammar. Make sure you time yourself and OG is easier than the real test.
What study material from Knewtonn/MGMAT are you using?

p.s. "Any advices" is incorrect usage - "advice" is a singular noun in 99% of cases.

Thank you

- Knewton Material- Knewton Online Course
- MGMAT- I have all the series

could you please advice whether i should focus on knewton online test or MGMAT test? which one should i focus as a practice test to improve my score?

I feel like i could do much better than what i have in terms of math, and there is room for improvement for verbal. As for OG practice, as i mentioned, I am pretty comfortable with the practices and get most of the questions right, so i am not sure if my strategy is going into the right direction. I really need to hit at least 680

You have got the right tools and you don't need to focus on tests, instead focus on the material (basics such as arithmetic) and make sure you know it by heart. It does not matter if you pick MGMAT or Knewton - you can get 750 with either program.

I will give you another tip: "It is advise as a verb but advice as a noun" - that should give you an idea what to focus on. :wink:

thank you

so you think i should not focus on the pratice test , but rather the content itself?

this is my plan, please give me some comments:

Right now i am taking online Knewton Course and they provide 5 online tests:

I am just going to focus on Knewton and use MGMAT as the supporting materials. Along with these two, I plan to practice OG; however, I have done most of them from my first actual test preparation.

thank you
