I just took the gmat for the first time after only casually studying for about 3 weeksand received a horrible score of 420 (30 percentile for verbal and an embarrassing 14 percentile in quant). I took a practice test and scored a 520 and for some uhh unknown reason stopped studying for 2 weeks (not smart on my part, I know). The school I am applying to requires a score of at least 550. I plan on studying 6 days a week (2 days for an hour, 2 days for 2 hours, and 2 days for 3-4 hours). My study materials include: Manhattan gmat
quant and og verbal
(first month), Kaplan
2013 edition (second month) and last month review og 13th
edition. I am going to take a practice test every three weeks to monitor success and weak areas (which I know is my quant). Will this plan help give me the boost I need? Any advice and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. ( I know a 550 isn't that high in the gmat world, but I am a very nervous test taker and am not applying to a B-)school)
Kristinaw: Are u a native English speaker? If yes that concentrate on Verbal and work on
For quant concentrate on official guides and use Manhattan math books..
), GMAT official guides (1 Main, 1 verbal, 1 math) and GMAT Prep Software.
gives u 5 additional online exams which are also good.
Try to complete the basic study during the first 4-6 weeks and once ur confident with the contents, take practice test every week and use the two GMAT Prep test at the end..
