since you're planning to take your test in Feb , I think there is ample time for you to concentrate on the basics . http://www.grammar-monster.com/site_map.htm
You can use sites like the one above , or use certain Basic Grammar Books like High School Grammar by Wren And Martin
. This would help you brush up on basic concepts like nouns , pronouns , clauses , adjectives and other building blocks of basic english grammar .
To develop the basic math skill for GMAT a Quant workbook is a must . You can use the Kaplan
Quants Workbook , which will help you in developing/brushing up on basic mathematical skills .
I would suggest that you spend atleast 2 weeks on developing the basics .
I can suggest you optimum preparation plans for each section Sentence Correction
Grab Manhattan SC guide , and complete it like theres no tomorrow ! . This would shoot your SC scores up like you would've never thought ! . Remember to solve the related OG questions at the end of each chapter religiously after completing the chapter from Manhattan . Critical Reasoning
Again grab the Manhattan CR
guide and go through it thoroughly and follow the similar approach of solving the related OG questions at the end of each chapter religiously after completing the chapter from Manhattan .
If you find the ideas presented in Manhattan too vague , then you can go for Powerscore CR
bible for a comprehensive insight into critical reasoning . Also there is a useful ppt which I have attached regarding critical reasoning . Reading Comprehension
Again read Manhattan's approach to solving RCs and then try and complete the RC section from OG . RC can neither have tricks applied to it , nor shortcuts . Basically do a lot of reading apart from the regular study material . http://www.economist.com/
is an excellent resource for GMATish passages . Problem Solving and Data Sufficiency
Once you're done with the workbook , start working on OG problems .
If the workbook doesnt cover probability just google "probability" and readup links like http://www.mathgoodies.com/LESSONS/VOL6/intro_probability.html
I would suggest that you religiously follow the OG and the OG itself . If you're done with it once , go over it again , until you know how each and every question in there needs to be solved . Its like your Chris Gardner's book from Pursuit of Happiness . You have to live with it , stay with it , breathe with it , and I promise the OG wont let you down
It'd be awesome if you could fit time for practicing the aforementioned material into your own schedule that you're comfortable with.
All the best !
