GMAT plan - first post! [#permalink] New post 30 Oct 2005, 20:28
Hey everyone, this is my first post :-D

I'm writing the GMAT mid November for the first time (less than 3 weeks!). I'm applying to Schulich (York U), Rotman (U of Toronto), and Degroote (McMaster). So i'm hoping for atleast 630 or 640 which is around what they accept.

I have already finished PR Review 2005 and I am half way through GMAT 800 now. After I finish this I plan on taking one of the PowerPreps so I have an idea about where I am before i do any questions from the OG. Then I plan on doing as much of the OG as possible leading up to the test day and on the day before the test do the second
powerPrep to get into the test mentality! I also have the Kaplan 2005 with the CD so I'll probaby do a couple of the tests on that CD time permitting.

I discovered this forum couple of days ago and it looks like it will be a great help so I plan on integrating it into my study hours too 8-)

My question is other than what I mentioned does anyone have any suggestions? Such as more material to cover. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Sounds like you have your plan very well worked out. Be sure to participate a lot in this forum - it helped me tons!

I'm probably also going to apply to Schulich, so let me know how your efforts go.

Good luck!

I definatly will be participating in this forum. I was very happy to find it and have already learned alot from it.

Good luck to you too! Are you applying for full time Schulich?

Currently i think my weakest point is RC :( but i'll practice it as much as possible from the OG.

Be sure to keep an error log and review it during the last week of prep. Also, take the Kaplan CATs before PR CATs if you are planning to take them all.

Good luck!

I'm taking mine on the 17th, and it sounds like we both have similar game plans.

Cracking the GMAT 2005 (finished)
Kaplan (the course book, with CD) - in progress
PowerPrep

the the OG 10th (time permitting)

I believe the secret is repetition, to cover the many variations of a question type.

As a general note, it is best to make certain that your pace will give you sufficient time to finish the OG. It can be useful to practice with other materials, but the OG is the most important point of reference when preparing for the test.
