Under GMAT Study Plans, how about adding a link to a page for GMAT-takers with a short time frame in mind to prep for the test? "One month," as in my case, seems to be fairly popular...

If I'm not mistaken, I think the advice that I found suggested running through all 3 OG guides (12th, verbal, and quant), and testing like crazy.

For my short-term strategy, I purchased the 12th ed. OG (though I may pick up the OG verbal as my primary concern is verbal) and Kaplan Live 2010 for access to the 5 additional CAT tests. Study time expected at +/- 20 hours per week.

Hopefully late-coming "slackers" can still score well. :-D

They start out with problems that you can just figure out if you read the question.
By the end they should be hard.

It depends how well you do. They should be getting quite hard if you're doing well. If you make lots of mistakes, you will mainly encounter easy question. The questions in the OG are from the old exams.
