Best time to use OG [#permalink] New post 18 Nov 2009, 08:01
Hi, All:

This is my first post, so please take it easy on me. I have read the guide for novices and bb's 3-month study plan. This is a great resource. Thanks everyone for your hard work.

I have bought all Manhattan's guides, OG 11, OG V and M, and Kaplan 2008. I am almost done with Kaplan's study material and the drill questions. Next, I am planning to go through Manhattan's guides. I am wondering what is the best time to use OG. Should I use it to solve as I go through Manhattan's guides, or should I solve OG once I am done with the study material?

In addition, how long does it to finish all OGs? Just curious.

I think it depends on your skill level. If you are really good in math then really only the last problems in OG will be beneficial. The first problems of OG are too easy.

I would go through the Manhattan guides first then OG. Some OG explanations can be confusing.

I see no point in keeping OG Verbal & OG Quant to the end. About 50% of their questions are pretty easy and should be done early in your preparation.

There is some point in keeping the harder questions (roughly last 50 questions from each section) for some time , but not till the end IMHO. Of course you can go through them twice - good way to measure one's progress.

Make sure you use a GMAT Timer as you go through it and don't just spend hours on questions that you are supposed to solve in minutes.
