completely lost.. [#permalink] New post 22 May 2004, 01:28
hi all,

I seem to be completely lost as to which books should i refer to.Last night i gave the gmat800 maths section test and scored a 76% 24 out of 37 questions correct.that is my status now.and i plan to sit for the test on 19th of july..so approximately 1.5 months to go...which are the books i should refer to for maths..i am completely lost about that.i seem to face a problem with integer sums and work too...

where Verbal is concerned..i have this habit of going by instincts..i am always in a haste while solving the VA section..i just do not analyse it...the fear always takes over my intelligence...please suggest books i should follow..right now i am trying to catch up with some grammar..


Any suggestion would be welcome

Have you gone through OG ? If not, that is the book to go for in your case where time is a constraint. I would advice postponing the GMAT if you are not comfortable.

Official Guide is a good place to start. then move on to Kaplan. 1.5 months can be less, if you are working full time.

Also, try to go over the category based problems on our forum. start with basic and move on to advanced.

Maintain a log of your errors. Every error that you do, it should go into your log. Practise does not mean anything if mistakes are not eliminated. take time to understand what you did wrong and why? Everytime you start your prep, first , go over the error log. if you do it everyday and maintain this discipline, you will see yourself improving because you will know very well the mistakes you did.

Avoid guessing in your prep. In math, try to solve most of the problems using concepts. you can use Process of elimination, but its a short sighted approach.

.

http://www.bartleby.com is a good place to start for grammar. also, gmat club has written some verbal lessons for the members. check those out in the verbal lessons forum.

Practice is the only way to improve SC skills. Sure, learn the rules of grammar and the idioms, but unless you can practise with good questions, it is going to be hard.

for RC and CR, again, the same thing, practice and practice. write down your errors in your log and study them everytime. with enough practice, you will have developed a clear strategy to attack problems.

for CR - official guide, OG- like questions from disclosed LSATs, gmatclub discussions.
