I've scheduled to take the GMAT on June 11 and I just started studying last week. I'm using the ETS Powerprep and the Princeton and Kaplan books.

So far I'm still iffy on the Quant part and doing well on the verbal parts. What's the likelihood of success (or getting an average score) given the short time of preparation?

How are you doing in your practice tests? what score you are aiming for?

In my opinion, for most guys, a minimum of 100-125 hours of practice (and learning) is key. This does not include 4 hours for each practice test you take. I say learning becaue your concepts should be really really strong and you should be confident that you can do well in a timed environment.

When you practice, record every error you make. Go over them every single time you start your prep. I am sure this will help you make the mos t of the time that is remaining.

I hope this helps

Sincerely
Praet

Thanks for the tips.

I guess I'm aiming around the mid 600's.

I'm still doing the the practice questions, and when I get those down, then I'll switch to the actual practice exam.

Make sure you take a few full tests, so that you know how it feels to spend 4 hours in front of the PC. It is very important.

If you take PP after going throught the OG, your results will be quite inflated.

PP = Powerprepp, the free software you can download at http://www.mba.com/mba/TaketheGMAT/Tool ... ftware.htm
OG = Official Guide which contain all the questions which PP is made up of. It can be bought on amazon.com Since you don't want to contaminate your PP results, do the OG only at the end of your studying. Complete PP and then do OG
