Help needed to get past 700 hurdle [#permalink] New post 30 Aug 2012, 01:47
Hello Experts/Friends,

Please help me to ace to 700+.

Here is brief background of my test prep:

Just wrote my actual test this tuesday and got 670 (q48, v34), wasn't a shock as in the last week i realized i didnt do enough 700+ questions,Touched a few in last week but i suppose thay weren't enough, but i expected to score more on verbal.

KAPLAN: 590
MGMAT CAT1: 640
MGMAT CAT2: 660
MGMAT CAT3: 660
MGMAT CAT4: 640
MGMAT CAT5: 680
Didnt give the last one

Tried analyzing my practice test results before the actual test, i realized i did poorly on 700+ questions in almost every section. Though i had 80% accuracy in SC on sub 700 questions, 70% CR for same catagory and roughly 60% in RC. Quant was Ok but same problem with 700+, mostly DS.

Even in verbal 700+ questions i realized i was able to narrow down to 2 most probable and most often than not chose the wrong one. Also more often the questions that i got wrong were due to language of answer choices.

I must mention that i found verbal section on actual GMAT a bit tough and therefore took a bit more time in first half and i have to rush in second thereby lowering my score.

I want to resume studies as soon as possible but first i want to know if i'm going in right direction. I have to retake GMAT before 15th Oct so that i may have sufficient time to prepare the essays as well.

Please help to eradicate flaws in my study plan if any or in my technique so that i can score atleast 720. (with approx 45 days, 2-3 hrs weekdays, 5 on most hrs weekend)

I think i need to focus on 700+ content please suggest me stuff to best utilize the limited time.

Any suggestions are highly appreciated.



List of resources that i have:
6 MGMT CATS + 5 KAP TESTS
OG 12/13
OG Verbal 2
Quant Review 2
set of 8 MGMT books
Powerscore CR,
Aristotle RC99,
Jeff's extreme challange,
Chilli Hot maths

I'm planning to buy Kaplan maths n verbal challenge. Any suggestions?

PS: I didn't thoroughly covered Quant Review 2, chilli hot maths, RC99 in first attempt.

Best Regards,
Mansoor

I don't have any real suggestions, but I would like to offer you my encouragement. It appears that we are in a very similar position and I would like to know how to break 700 as well. Good luck!
