I am almost 3 months into my gmat preparation
Let me first write out whatever I have done till date
Started preparing somewhere around arpil mid. I did not want to take a gmatprep as wasting a valuable exam seemed futile. Started with GMATCLUB app, MGMAT books
and solving OG questions as directed from the MGMAT guide.
Some weeks of haphazardness led to weak preparation and after solving almost 70% of OG problems I decided to take a MGMAT cat
N.B: This was after 1 month of preparation
Score: 680(Q49, V34)
OK. Not that bad. With greater vigour i started solving random questions from OG and other sources trying to work on weak areas that bothered my score.
Next week I took MGMAT CAT 2
Score: 670(Q48, V34)
Now I was pissed at myself. I figured out that I required much more discipline in my study pattern. As a result I took knewton
gmat course. I got 680(Q47,V37) in knewton
diagnostic so I was happy that they are going to guarantee a 730 score on GMAT.
Within 1 month(that means last week) I completed all the sessions and I found knewton
to be AMAZING.
I came to understand loads of verbal concepts that were there in MGMAT but were too hebrewesque for me. I started to understand the concepts better and David Ingber proved to be an excellent instructor.
Right in the middle of my knewton course
I took a GMATPREP and scored 700(Q50,V34). I was not happy with my verbal score AT ALL. But then I figured by the time I am done with Knewton
, I'd be much better in verbal anyway.
Last week I finished Knewton course
and was hoping to take GMATPREP 2. But then I thought I ll take GMATPREP 2 once I am done with every bit of preparation.
I was hooked to grockit for solving random questions and figured I make a whole lot of mistakes on meaning based questions.
Today, after much indecisiveness I signed on to EGMAT
Sentence correction course, which comes for 69$, and scored 100% on the diagnostic
Now, I am extremely happy and I think I can move ahead to see some good improvement on my next MGMAT CAT.
So here goes my schedule for the NEXT 2 WEEKS
I will take 2 hours Every weekday with the following agenda from OFFICIAL GUIDE 13
20 PS questions, 17 DS questions, 18 SC questions, 15 CR questions
Additionally 3 RC passages from Aristotle RC sets(as you can notice, this is to set me for GMAT concentration as well as a means to finish OG13)
With this I will finish EGMAT
SC course within a couple of weeks and I reserve the next 2 weekends solely for MGMAT CAT 3 and MGMAT CAT 4
I shall post regularly to track my progress and after 2 weeks I shall check my standing on the final GMATPREP 2
AS MANY WISE PEOPLE HAVE SAID, I WILL NOT BOOK MY GMAT DATE UNTIL I SEE MY DREAM SCORE ON GMATPREP
WISH ME ALL THE BEST PEOPLE
