Still need to make my 3 week macro POA..but here is how I spent my day.
Note:3 weeks my main focus is GMAT..have entire day to give to it.
Another note: Just for info my last(+3 weeks) gmatprep score was 660(Q47 V35).A week back had taken Powerprep (mainly because I did’nt feel like studing..and I knew powerprep had repeat questions from OG so kind of a revision..)710(Q48 V39)
Note to myself:My main weakness is my inability to sit for longer periods.. so from now on I am going to clock my sessions..90 minutes stretch or more? Opinion??SC: Brutal SC
’s 25-45.I had done the first 25 over a period of last 3 days and man was it BAAAD!!My hit rate is below 50%
. I noticed that my reasoning was right and I was heading down the right path..but ultimately when it boiled down to the last two choices,I selected the wrong one
. This was quite a trend.. I wonder if it says something..?!
SC is my weakness but I am not THIS bad at it!! This was terribly de-motivating and made me completely give up.On top of it,It took me AGES to even review it thoroughly.
On the positive side,it made me remember points which are rarely used and even though I knew the concepts it had gone to a dark corner of my brain..
Opinions??I have already done 45/70 so might as well finish up the rest tomorrow…
I also did 20 questions from Kaplan800
..walk in the park..RC
:The source was a problem.Really don’t know where to practice RC’s from.Suggestions??
For some weird reason I decided to do 3 passages from Kaplan800
(Have hardly opened this book..did a lil’ bit of quant from it ages ago)
3 passages..Blinded by science..Has anyone done it??It’s mind numbing!!As if RC is’nt already a big pain..hit rate: 2/4, 2/3, 4/4.Could’nt make sense of any of the passages I read so ok with the result.Quant
*still not reached the score of 50,which I know is very much doable,all thanks to DS..
DS: While I have solved OG 11
/12 PS thoroughly and also done the error log
,unfortunatly the same cannot be said for DS.So for DS I am going to stick close to OG.
Did #’s 100-125 OG12
.Hit rate, as expected was low.Got to make sure I give DS proper attention everyday.Topic of the day:
HCF/LCM >>spent around 45 mins. Doing sums from the forum on this topic.The concept is MUCH clearer now.
????: I have solved OG11
and quant review and the DS in OG12
is MARKEDLY tougher than the former two books.Is this so or am I just really really out of practice??
I had come across this site Magoosh
.com.Liked it because though the problems presented are not too difficult, some are tricky,and I really really need to cut down on the silly mistakes.They have video explanations which makes it kind of fun..so I plan on spending some time on the site when I am wiped out or when it’s just not “my time of the day”.I have a feeling this site will help..
P.S..Planning to restart my going to the gym from tomorrow..need the strength!!
