Hello,
I have been studying for almost 2 months now and plan another month of dedicated study before taking the GMAT in early June
When I first started it was like starting over as I hadn't done math since early college days (about 4 years)
I started with the foundations and then started attempting actual problems.
I first did the
Kaplan Premier book, then the
Official Guide 12 Quant book. I took practice tests throughout the process and my scores have consistenly gone up.
Kaplan 1 - CD test but my computer won't work with the CD
Kaplan 2 - 580 (Q36, V36)
Kaplan 3 - 660 (Q41, V43)
GMAT Prep 1 - 620 (Can't locate breakdown)
Kaplan 4 - 590 (Q35, V36)
Kaplan 5 - 590 (Q36, V32)
Kaplan 6 - 590 (Q38 V30)
MGMAT 1 -600 (Q43, V31)
Princeton Review Free - 620 (Can't locate breakdown)
GMAT Prep 2 - 660 (Q42, V38)
MGMAT 2 - 660 (Q45, V35)
I feel as if my Quant score is steadily increasing and on my last CAT test, the MGMAT 2nd test upon review the only Quant questions I missed were in the 700-800 range. I recently breezed through the MGMAT Foundation books just as a refresher on core concepts (and I am waiting on the strategy guides).
Previously I did all the Quant problems in the
OG 12 Quant review and got 86% right. I have recently reviewed and redid all the questions I had previously gotten wrong.
Any advice on how to proceed? I plan on completing all the strategy guides for MGMAT and then completing the
OG 12 Verbal review.Once these are completed I plan on diving into the
OG 12 and compelting each problem multiple times (until I can fully understand why the problem is correct). While doing this I plan to take CAT tests peridocally just to somewhat measure improvement and keeping the pacing strategies I currently have (as I have only run out of time once in the CAT's I have taken). I can see my Quant score slowly increasing and I have gotten my highest score of 45 today. I feel fairly confident I can increase this as I notice mistakes on some of the problems. I may have dove into the CAT's a little too early but I like to measure how my studying is going. I figure if I focus more on the tougher math problems while increase my verbal score (provided this will increase with strategy guides and more practice) I should see the scores I am looking for
Any advice on how to proceed studying or any thoughts on my plans for prep?
Any advice would help
