Countdown T=9, Final Tips? [#permalink] New post 12 Nov 2012, 14:25
Hi All,

I've been lurking on this site and really marveling at the level of commitment and discipline you all bring to this. I'm taking the GMAT on 11/21/12, and would love some advice on how to execute well during my final week. My journey's been a relatively short one. I cracked open my first GMAT book on 09/01/12, and haven't really thought of anything else outside of work other than this exam. My goal is a 750, although I will be reasonably content as long as I hit above an 80% for math and above 720 in general.

Resources: MGMAT Self-Study, Sackmann GMAT Math, tutor

MGMAT Practice 1: 640 (39Q, 40V)
MGMAT Practice 2: 660 (42Q, 38V)
MGMAT Practice 3: 650 (40Q, 38V)
MGMAT Practice 4: 700 (46Q, 39V)
MGMAT Practice 5: 700 (45Q, 40V)
MGMAT Practice 6: 730 (45Q, 45V)

GMAT Prep Exam 1: 740 (49Q, 42V)
GMAT Prep Exam 2: 760 (49Q, 44V)


To be quite frank, I have never worked so much on a standardized test in my life. I have also never been quite so aware of myself as a math-dumb Asian (I am a soft-and-squishy liberal arts major who writes poetry semi-professionally and reads political theory for fun). At this point I am reviewing all the problems I got wrong, doing 700 levels problems, working through the common "dumb" mistakes I make, and doing more Verbal problems since I have literally spent 10 hours in the last two months on Verbal (more than 200 hours on Quant). Would love any input, thx!

-L.
