Hi,

I am planning to write the GMAT soon. However, before the exam, I would like to review about 500-600 questions I've marked out of almost 2500 official questions. What's the best way to review all these questions? I don't have enough time to solve these questions again. Thanks

What's your purpose in reviewing the questions? It might not be your best use of time if you are close to taking the GMAT. Do you have any data (or any sense) for your performance by content area of type of question? I would probably recommend working additional problems in timed sets and reviewing that work to find areas of weakness and silly mistakes you can fix before test day.

Hi Nina1987,

It's important that you clearly define the parameters of what you're talking about:

1) When are you scheduled to take the GMAT?
2) What type of availability will you have to study up to that time?
3) When you say "review questions", what does that mean to YOU? Do you want to redo them from scratch? Flip through your old notes? Just reread them?
4) How much are you looking to improve your score?

There's a 'mechanical' aspect to Test Day that can really only be improved by doing the physical work, on the pad, to answer a given question. You have to factor that type of training into your practice.

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

Hi Nina1987,

It is always beneficial to review the official questions before the test as thoroughly as possible

1. Have you solved these questions and the other questions before?
2. How long do you have until your GMAT?

Ideally you should practice the ones that you missed in the first time that you solved them.
This will ensure that you do not make the same mistake again.

Merely reading the explanations of the questions might not help. You need to understand the solutions thoroughly.

Would like to appear asap..maybe in a month..but my work is crazy I need to work often on weekends too. so wont be able to take out much time. Things will get in even more hectic in March with financial year closing.

I agree ideally I should solve them again. But I don't have much time.

My purpose is to be able to 'pattern-match'. I'd like to be able to solve similar or quasi similar questions on the test day efficiently and accurately. So pls suggest what should I do reread or solve? like I said I have solved and reviewed them thoroughly them once.

Im at Q49-50. I need to go to 50-51.

Honestly I don't have a clear idea. Im at Q49-50 right now. I need to go to Q50-51. But I'd really like to score 51. My prep test results are all over and I am not able to pin down an area of weakness. But at 49-50 its a matter of just 1 or 2 questions.

I don't like unofficial questions much. I often find them random. I started out with a base line score of Q48. After all the prep have never scored less than 49 and often score 50. Whereas on an other company(very reputable) prep test I just scored Q42 which I know for sure is not representative. Regardless of the score, I find that unofficial questions are quite different. I am not able to attack unofficial questions conceptually/algebraically as often as the official questions.

Thanks, KW!

I agree with you about the official questions - best to go to the source. Have you tried the GMATPrep Question Pack 1? (http://www.mba.com/us/store/store-catal ... ack-1.aspx) You could also check out the GMAT Focus because that would give you a good sense of your areas of weakness...
