GMAT strategy - in last 40 days. [#permalink] New post 10 Jul 2012, 01:05
Hi team,

Here's a quick question - Should I stick to some specific material or Should I aim for as much questions and materials as possible ? By Specific material I mean, books which everyone refers- GMAT OG - latest edition and 10th edition, Manhattan: SC, CR and RC guides and GMAT Verbal Guide (latest edition).

Since, I have heaps of material for Verbal such as 1000 questions set each for RC, SC, and CR and books such as Kaplan 800, Kaplan Verbal Workbook and Princeton Crack the new GMAT, so should I target to solve as much material as possible or should I keep myself very specific regarding material for preparation. Which strategy will/can work better ?

For your better understanding, here's some more information,
* I can devote (or I am devoting) almost 4 hours in weekdays and 7-8 hours on weekends,
* I have been studying for last 1-1.5 months,
* Books I have completed - Princeton Crack the new GMAT, Kaplan Verbal Workbook (almost), and Read
Manhattan- SC, CR, RC guides
* Almost 40 days are left in my GMAT test,
* I haven't started practicing AWA and IR sections,
* I haven't started attempting OG questions,
* I haven't started giving Full Length GMAT mock test, and
* I believe that I am good at Maths - Referring score in Quantitative section

Please reply soon,

Regards,

Saurabh

It all depends on where you are right now and where you want to go. If you are already at Q50, all you would want to do is 20 or so advanced questions from different topics everyday. Else you first need to thoroughly go through the topics you are weak in. Take a GMAT prep test asap to understand whether your problems are conceptual or careless. That will decide your strategy. You need to put in focused effort on your weaknesses and thereafter, just practice. At the end of the day, it doesn't matter how many books and how many questions you have done. What matters is what you take away from whatever you have done.
