Dreaming [#permalink] New post 08 Apr 2013, 11:57
I have a dream study opportunity - off from work for a few month and will be utilizing this time to study and take the gmat. I have a goal of around 740, with diagnostic tests currently in the low 600s. Since I was blessed with this opportunity to study without working, I want to make sure I nail down my study plan so I reach my goal. I currently have the Manhattan GMAT books, including advance quant and GMAT roadmap and the 12th Ed OG. My plan is currently (assuming studying 40 horus/week)
Wk 1 - Diagnostic test, Manhattan number properties and FDP doing 2/3 of associated OG problems
Wk 2 - Manhattan Word Problems, Algebra, Geometry doing 2/3 of associated OG problmes
Wk 3 - Go over last 1/3 of OG problems, and OG Quant book. Take CAT 1.
Wk 4 - Manhattan SC and CR doing 2/3 of associated OG problems(and review quant flash cards)
Wk 5 - Manhattan RC doing 2/3 of associated OG problem. Start OG Verbal Book
Wk 6 - OG Verbal book. CAT 2. Manhattan Advance Quant Book
Wk 7 - CAT 2, 3, Review of materials
Wk 8 - Practice, Practice, Practice, CAT 5, 6
Wk 9 - Practice, Practice, Practice.

Any thoughts on this study plan? Was thinking of using a tutor as well.. When should they get involved? Any other resources (Thursdays w/Ron), etc? I know I have enough TIME to meet my goal, I just want to make sure I study "right" and maximize this opportunity.

Thank you!!

Hi Saunders854,

Your study plan looks good. I suggest that you distribute the cats and incorporate a few in between your prep. Take CAT1 on week 2, the next on week 4 and so on... This will help you identify your weaknesses and strengths and provide you the over direction for your prep. Ideally the successive tests should show an increasing pattern towards you target GMAT score.

Regarding tutor: if you are comfortable preparing on your own and can see improvements, no need for a tutor. Having a tutor for GMAT could be tricky and most of them are really expensive. All the best !!

Hope this helps,

Vercules
