Final week of preparations - Some advices pls :) [#permalink] New post 18 Sep 2006, 23:02
Hi all,

Next week on 28 sept, it's my GDay ;) Thus, it's my last week before it.

I still work on the verbal section (100 SCs/40 CRs and 2 or 3 passages a day) and keep practicing Math section both from OG 10 & 11.

This are my last exam results all with AWA, chronologically presented:
> GMATPrep3 : 710 (no repeats)
> GMATPrep4 : 770 (some verbal repeats)
> MGMAT 1 : 720 (retake but i could not remember the questions)
> MGMAT 2 : 700 (same as for the 1)
> MGMAT 3 : 690 - I did it very very tired / short and late night just before (same as for the 1)

My confidence level is good :)

I plan to :

o This week
> continue my current pratices of Verbal & Math
> take one more time the GMATPrep this Sunday

o Next week
> reread my errorLog file
> spend regularly some time during the day to refresh my memory on my Idioms' list
> read some examples of AWA
> practice more separatedly with 3 or 4 questions a time during the day: to preserve my energy as well as to keep on practicing

o The day before
> trip to the town where I pass the GMAT
> visit the center and ask last questions to the staff
> practice a little
> reread my Idioms' list : focus on yellow parts that I hardly remember
> pratice very few questions 15 maxi by aeras and not consecutive
> relax time on evening (I hope :) )
> sleep near 10:30 > 11 pm

o On the GDay
> wake up slowly at 10 > 10:30
> eat a consistent breakfast
> relax
> reread a little my Idioms' list and practice 1/2 questions SC 11:15 > 11:30
> eat some white rice near 12:00
> relax
> go to the center at 1:15pm
> start at 2pm

Please give me some final advices/comments on my preparation :)

Hi Figaro,

I don't have any special advices to give you, it seems you're on the right path for success.
I want to retake my gmat one of these days too, but I don't dare schedule an exam.

Bonne chance!

I had planned to start applying for MBA schools in Oct, but I think it will be too short, as I dont know when I'll do the exam.
Since my last attempt, I've just focused on verbal, w/o timing myself. I read lots of stuff, and tried to understand everything but had no time during the WE to study and do math or CATs.
I have to commit myself that from next we on, I'll have to work hard again...

Thanks u2lover... Nice to see your comments back on the forum :)

I think so... positive and calm are key elements of a good performance... I hope on the GDay that they will not leave me ;)

I scare a few to burn me out by the strategie of Necromonger that, nevertheless, is probably very good :)
