I think you need to post how you have prepared so others can give sugestions. I understand this question is not suited for your depression mood now, but, this forum members will help you greatly to bring you on track.

Better luck next time. take this as a challenge, and believe that you are going to crack it next time.

Hi,

thanks for rekindling the motivation.

The below were some of the studying methods and materials used:

Mgmat sc guide, OG11, barrons gmat, powerprep, gmat prep, sc 1000 series.

I started off with OG11 and barrons gmat. solved all the quant problems, sc , cr and few RC.

some test scores are powerprep 550 Q37,V21. still has lot of problems in verbal.

i strongly accept that i did not solve as many tests as recomended under this forum but just did only the practice question.

please suggest me with some good techniques and strategies to improve.

Pavan1984,
I am yet to start my preperation. Hence treat this as ones's opinion. Please look at others debriefs and plot your own.

I also request other's to suggest/enhance this plan

I am naive for GMAT prep either, but, as I see this forum on a daily basis, i can give some inputs. However, there are many people in this forum to suggest exactly to your situation.

To my knowlledge, looks like you did not get fundas.. And would have been tensed in exam..

start with funda books first -
A. manhattan for SC, princeton, Kaplan 800 for verbal,
B. OG, and some paper tests

In above prep:
1. Don't just understand the correct answers, also try to understand why the incorrect answers were incorrect.
2. Some times more than one answer is correct. It is just that we need to find the choice which makes more appropriate and simple to the context. In this case, we need to choose the best answer. I see similar questions in California car driving test; you need to chose the high prioritized answer.
3. Error log - browse thru this forum and read all debriefs adn see how they maintain error logs.
4. While doing OG, you can find the area you are weak in. do some more work on the weak areas.
5. overall, do questions daily and track your progress and time. Spend as much time as possible for each question during beginning days, if you dont understand. Doesnt matter if it takes 20 mins. just understand the in and out of each question. If you are still not comfortable with some of answers on how they are correct/incorrect, then post it in forums.
Some people say to get remaining 7 manhattan books in addition to SC. you can also do that, but i am not sure.
6. As you work thru the questions, you should see the difference in time taken and accuracy.


**** RCs -- browse this forum to find how RCs are being cracked. chose the method that is convenient to you. If it doesn't work, try another method.

Then take 1 powerprep, 1 GMATprep, 1 MGMAT test. powerprep is for practice and gmatprep and MGMAT are for actual assessment.

In above tests, you should be able get at least 65-75%ile If not, post here how much your progress is and how did you do the prep in detail. People out here will be able to suggest you

find your weak areas from above tests, look for a good book in that area and read it.

do 1000's in all areas (esp. in SC, CR and RC), -- follow the timing here
solve questions in this forum.
solve paper tests

do 2-3 MGMAT exams. IF no expected progress is reached, then you need to look back at your prep method, not the materials.

****Anytime in your prep, when you are at 90% in quant, buy GMATCLUB forum tests and solve them.

if you are okay to move, So do GMATPREP1 reinstall, GMATprep2.

MGMAT ..all of the books are great. You HAVE to get the foundations cemented into your head. The Questions are hard enough on their own, missing any rules makes them impossible.

Also I would suggest study and not worry about your retest date, no need to have the added pressue. Sign up when you have the basics nailed.

good luck
Mindy
