a very busy week...

Didnt get much time to study but thats the way it is... Isn't it...Our wants are more than the resources that are available :)

15th May 2011 Sunday

Sentence Correct Day...
I am doing the e-gmat course. I have finished all the lessons. I revised all the notes and did around 30 OG questions (not in order but as per the order suggested by the course). Managed to get 4-5 questions wrong.

I am going to put up my plan later today... Need to be more disciplined... Thanks for the support people...

Hey gmatprep2011, your plan seems to be consistent. When do you plan to take the test..
It's really helpful if you have a date booked with GMAT.

I had planned to read "Powerscore Critical Reasoning Bible" but I think I am comfortable with CR... So I am practising OG and then I'll read the relevant chapters from the book (Read this strategy somehwere on GmatClub)

Currently doing SC and CR from OG... Good collection of questions...

Completed 800score.com CAT 1 - 660 (Q50,V30)

Q50 - 32 out of 37 correct

V30 - 28 out of 41 correct

Will analyze and put my learnings here...

Will have to work on Verbal... Increasing the verbal score will lead to an increase in the overall score...

GMATClub Tests - M01

m01: you answered correctly 31 out of 37 questions; your percentile on test m01 is 80.1% (you did better than 80.1% of m01 test takers).

I am weak at Inequalities and Data Sufficiency... What material should I refer to for these topics?

Please help...

Thanks Gmatclub.com & bb for the free tests... I like the tests. i am going to buy them next week.

Analyzed the test. My preliminary diagnostic was bang on target. I need to focus more on topics like Inequalities and Data Sufficiency.

I think I'll read Manhattan GMATs "VIC" book again... Lets see if it helps....

Completed 800score.com CAT 3 - 650 (Q49,V29)

Q49 - 30 out of 37 correct

V34 - 24 out of 41 correct :oops:

800score verbal is wierd... Some questions are far from GMAT...

If I have to do well on GMAT, I need to improve in Verbal... before I start the MGMAT Tests...

Will utilize today and tomorrow to work on Verbal

1 - Revise SC & solve the remaining OG questions
2 - I think I need to read Powerscore SC Bible
3 - RC99 passages (start atleast 1 a day)
