Dear Rakesh,

Good luck on your test!

Here's an article I wrote that addresses the theme of whether to retake the GMAT:

Also, if you decide to retake, here's a 30-day study plan:

I hope this helps!

Mike :-)

Hi Rakesh,

Great improvement so far. This month I would put together a study schedule with as much official GMAT material as possible supplemented by the Quant from GMATClub/MGMAT CATs. To give yourself the best possible shot of your goal I would take many timed sections and for the first three weeks do a ton of analysis. Keep an error log so you can hammer away at your weaknesses and shed light on all of those dark corners. That last week you can slow down and just do a maintenance amount of work to stay ready for the exam. You could supplement this with some hours of tutoring to focus on specific questions.

I would avoid taking a class because you will waste time/money covering topics that you already know and you will spend time solving many non-official questions (better stick with the official stuff when it is available).

If you would like to discuss putting a schedule together/tutoring feel free to PM me.

Happy Studies,

HG.

Hi there,

You are welcome. I would get:

1. The Quant and Verbal Reviews. Do all of the verbal review and the second half of the Quant review.

2. The GMAT Paper Tests. Only do the verbal (Quant is too easy). I find the verbal is a good predictor of score.

3. Question Pack 1 Do all of the verbal and Hard Quant.

4. The week before your test do all three GMAT Focus Tests. These are as close to real thing as you can get for Quant.

If you really want to push yourself on verbal I would do one long and one short GRE reading comp passage per day (from old GRE tests). I would also do a set of LSAT critical reasoning (skip the first 10 in each section because they are generally easier and also skip parallel reasoning and parallel flaw questions).

Besides all of this I would consistently be doing MGMAT and GMATClub Quant Only CATs. Do at least 15 timed Quant sections from this bunch.

With everything that you do keep an error so that you can keep track of where you need to work. In the beginning of this cycle you can work open book so that you are always applying the correct formulas and strategies. As you progress close the book. Always work with the erasable pad and marker. I hope that this helps.

Happy Studies,

HG.

PS: Of course sprinkle in GMATPrep 2-3 times throughout to gauge where you are. In the end you can work through the GMATPrep documents if you need more practice.

If you are feeling this way day before - don't take it tomorrow!
get the prep help you need and retake when you are more confident.
I think you are psyching yourself out of success.
I know all too well this test can trip you up mentally - not just testing what you do and d not know.
