please suggest me toughest math and verbal study plans that even a dog can ace gmat after preparation.
P.S i am very poor in math, i am a non math student, not very good at english grammar and essays .
I believe that if you really have what it takes to go from zero to achieving a 750 gmat score, well than you should also definitely have what it takes to search this forum which is really well organized and linked in the threads! There are many nailed threads that give you different study plans and study guide evaluations! Time to invest some well spent time!
You have loads of tym for your preperations ..so don't worry.I see your quants to be pretty lagging.Manhattan sets would be great to start with.Also try to get TotalGmat math book (jeff sackman's) it is pretty good to start with basics .Since you have time you can also plan for getting 1800 Practice sets too .These are very good and come in two fundamental set and Challenge set... _________________
Hey buddy i would highly recommend starting out with the manhattan Foundations of Math book. When I started out my math was very poor as well, I hadn't taken a math class since high school. After working through that book cover to cover my math raw score improved by 10 points and really helped me get a lot of the fundamentals down so I could build from there.
But anyway you need a lot of work with the basics. Don't try to dive into any sort of advanced material until you understand the basics.
I also strongly recommend Manhattan GMAT's Foundations of Math book. I rushed to learn the GMAT concepts, take a prep course and immediately after took the test and did poorly on it. Afterwards I decided to postpone my MBA plans for a year and went back to spend 3 months studying just math concepts. Then I went back to GMAT concepts which became a lot easier to grasp now that I know the basics. After 2 months of GMAT concept studying I plan to take another 2 months practicing problems and tests before taking the GMAT again.
