GMAT Study Plan- extra prep materials? [#permalink] New post 14 Oct 2013, 19:48
Hi everyone,

I just took a practice CAT (without preparation) that GMAC offers, I got a 630 (39Q, 37V, and 7 on IR).

I'm hoping to get a 700+, I was going to schedule the exam for January but I'm not sure yet. I'm planning on studying for 10-15 hours each week until then.

I bought all of the Manhattan GMAT books and the OGs, and I am planning on using the self-study plan bb outlined in one of his earlier posts, but I was wondering if anyone recommends taking an online course in addition to that? I'm considering just sucking it up and paying for the manhattan gmat self-study class or signing up with Magoosh.

Or should I buy more books? I was thinking Powerscore unless there's anything else that anyone strongly recommends.

Thank you for your help!

Manhattan books will do fine. I find you are good with Verbal. V37 is a above average score imo.

I would suggest you to have OG Verbal & OG Quants book. I feel these 2 are necessary, because it gives question types which are similar to questions asked in Official exam. So kind of helps you to tune yourself for the exam.

Good Luck

Cheers
Qoofi

Since the actual exam is in front of a computer, we'd recommend preparing a little bit more in front of a computer than in front of a book. Books are fine, but you need to prepare yourself psychologically and physically for the computer adaptive test - especially if you are not used to this kind of testing.

Online courses can help in this regard. Even studying questions online can be helpful.

Overall, you should assess your learning style. If you're not used to video online, check a few out: http://www.gmatpill.com/sentencecorrect ... -lo-mo.mp4 - compare how that feels versus reading from a book to see if it works for you.

You can try using Mobile App for studying. Try Gradestack GMAT app. I have heard they have kept this app for free for 2 months. Search for Gradestack GMAT app on Google playstore. They also have web version.

Hi Jazz,

Solid job on that first practice test. If you are an organized and motivated self-studier you should be able to get by with all of the official materials plus some type of guide book. In addition, the forums and various GMAT blogs are great resources.

Three suggestions:

1. It's great to do most of your work on a computer screen so get all of the books in Kindle Edition.

2. Make a study schedule to stay on track. This makes a huge difference. Here's a GMAT Study Schedule for people going for 700+ scores. While you're at it you might take a look at Essential GMAT Study Skills.

3. Your verbal is already pretty solid. Keep pushing it with LSAT practice. This work will be tough but worth it when you crush the GMAT verbal on your real exam.

Good luck!

A.
