Thank you for using the timer!

There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I have scoured this site to formulate a simple yet effective study plan which I am hoping will help me score in the 690-720 range. My plan is to study for 4 months while working full-time (320 hours total). I have decided against classroom formats because I am someone who enjoys learning on my own and tend to perform better this way (but I would consider online class format if it comes highly recommended). Please evaluate my study plan and give me any feedback that you believe would help me reach my goal.
Just to give you all a little background on myself, I have a finance/accounting background and have a fairly decent grasp of the English language.
Thank you for your reply. Are those books enough for me to score 700 or should I consider picking up any extra material? I just finished my level 3 CFA exam and am used to having all the necessary material to just wreck the exam. I find that with the GMAT I am having trouble getting assurances that these books will give me enough of an understanding to be able to answer any type of question the GMAT folks may throw my way.
To answer your question Vann, by that comment I meant that I would attempt to complete as many questions as possible-perhaps any sample exams that may be available for purchase or for free. I would really appreciate it if you helpful bunch would direct me towards where I can find more questions.
Yes, I would also recommend that you include OG Quant Review and the OG Verbal Review in your study plan.
Furthermore, once you're done with your initial study plan, you could gauge your progress by taking practice tests and determine what your weak areas are. You target those weak areas by practicing further from resources such as MGMAT question banks and challenge problem archives that you can access on their website.
Don't be too rigid with that outline. You will be able to overlap some of it. The MGMAT guides provide additional questions at the end of every chapter. These questions are referenced to the OG 12th edition and OG Verbal/Quant books. You can save yourself a bit of time if you make sure you do the questions as Rx'd by MGMAT.
Pushing the envelope you can practice harder questions provided by GMATClub Tests (Quant) or some of the LSAT material for CR/RC.
The MGMAT practice exams are great practice and doing those will make life a bit less stressful when you do attempt GMATPrep tests.
First of all, I want to thank all of those who have taken the time out of their busy days to help this newbie out .
gparmar16- What does rx'd mean? Do you mean that the guides will point me towards a set of questions in the official guides? Should I then ignore the end of chapter questions on the MGMAT and just go to the OG for questions?
