GMAT Study Schedule, please help and or advice, thanks! [#permalink] New post 19 May 2006, 07:17
This forum has really been helpful and I have only been on it for a few days. Math forum questions are really tough for me at this moment but I’m not giving up.

Point of this post: Communicate my schedule in order to receive feed back on its feasibility.

Objective: Scoring 600+ on GMAT

Time Line: May 29 2006 – July 13th 2006 (46 days, or 7 Weeks)

Date of GMAT exam: July 15th 10:00 Toronto, Canada

Strengths: Verbal, but still need a lot of brushing up.
Vocabulary and reading skills pretty strong.

Weakness: Quant., I am slowly getting in the mode of how to answer these questions.
A lot of fundamental math needs to be re-learned, (Algebra, Statistics, and Geometry).

Essays: Should be no problem, not going to waste my limited time worrying about these.

Constant: Working 9-5 as a business analyst, Monday – Friday.

Tools:
OG 11th Edition, OG 10th Edition, Kaplan 2006 Premium Edition, Kaplan GMAT Prep, Arco 2003 book, Princeton Review 2003 Book, Princeton Review 2003 Math Work Out

PREP COURSE:
Oxford Seminars Prep Course:
48 Hour Course with 2 GMAT CAT tests.
Prep Course also offers free repeat of its prep course which I will re-take in July.

hey neemo,

I am really in no position to give you an advice, but I know one thing... I would stay away from Princeton Review math... it is way too easy and too many words to keep you entertained... like "Joe Bloggs" concept... it is just stupid... even average test-taker don't think that way... their verbal is not so bad though...

If you need to brush up your math, try Kaplan Math Workout for GMAT/GRE... I thought it was well structured and explained.
I think you should not do OG or the CATs until you brush up your basics... it would be waste of time and material.

best,

Hi Neemo,

Your schedule definitely sounds feasible. For the quant, I would say to quickly go over the fundamentals and then start working through the OG.

For the OG, I definitely feel like the questions on there are too easy compared to the official exam. What I recommend doing is to start from the middle and go over questons until you feel comfortable enough to jump to the last 50-100 questions. The gmat math challenges are a great resource too as well as the gmat forum.

For verbal, I'm afraid I don't have a lot of advice for you since it's my weakness too. I hear that OG is the best resource for this.

Good luck!
