Hi,

coming back to GMAT Club after 6 months. I've been planning for GMAT and booked a date for 10 nov.
I am really weak in math and I want to start going through; Math Review For Standardized Tests, MGMAT, OG 12, 1012 GMAT Practice Questions and take 1 month for math preparation. I will start working on verbal section for the next month.
any advise?!!!

i also need to know how i can get GMAT preparation books in Ebook form, most of them are not available in our country and i have to buy Ebooks.

Sorry for the delay, amougouei. I hope a kudos will partly make up for it. Luckily, you still have plenty of time to prepare sufficiently for the GMAT.

If you're weak in math, then I encourage you to read the MGMAT books thoroughly. Read them twice if you have to, but skip the questions on the second try.

For verbal, Manhattan SC is necessary. I also strongly recommend Powerscore CR. If you need online questions, look no further than GMATClub! The forums are filled with questions, answers, and explanations. Also be sure to check out GMATClub Tests.

Regarding Ebooks, I don't have information on that. Perhaps you should post in the GMAT forum on that specific issue. If you still don't receive any feedback, PM bb or one of the verbal moderators. Another option is to directly email the companies and see if they can help you.

first of all you should get familiar with each type of question.
You must distinguish the question before answering.

If you follow each and every line ditto of powescore bible you will surely improve. Revise it 2-3 times if possible.

That's too bad that you're still having some trouble with CR. One positive thing to learn from this, though, is that you have identified a GMAT weakness. This is very important, as we can all work together to help you to improve this area.

First thing to do is re-read the CR book. Hopefully you will have time to do this. Another important step is keep an error log. Each CR question that you get wrong, make a note why there was an error and what type of CR it was.

Also, every CR question that you do, whether it's correct or not, read the explanation completely. Understand why one option is correct and the others are wrong. This will reinforce the concepts that you have already learned and put you into a "GMAT mindset." It will also help somewhat to always be in a active mentality, not a passive one. Simply doing a problem and checking to see whether it's correct is simply not enough.

I have already mentioned this, but it's worth repeating: become an active member on the verbal forums! Everyday do a couple of verbal questions. Answer the questions and defend your choice with an explanation of all the choices. Trust me, this helps very much. One of the signs that you know the material is when you can teach or explain it to another.

If you have any other questions or concerns, feel free to tell us. We want you to succeed!

I would actually advise to find out what exactly is your weakness.
E.g. I know my weakness is data sufficiency and also probability makes me rethink.

I always find it helpful to revise the concepts before I start.

Regarding Ebooks, I looked at 4gmat books and they were OK but didn't find them that useful. But that's just my opinion.

Edit:

Also, think you may get more response in the general forum as this is a verbal forum ? Just a suggestion. Good luck :)
