Before getting onto my questions, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Kamal and I am from India. I work in a reputed company as a systems Engineer for the past two years now. I decided to take GMAT ini the beginning of March and have studied a bit in quant. Not so much in verbal yet. I have already booked the date for exam - 8th MAY 2010
What have I done in the one month
1) I bought Cracking the GMAT
book by Princeton review
. Read the quant part from it except Co-ordinate geometry. And did all the drills (which were quite easy, BTW). Then took the warm up test and my score reflected that I should start from practice bin 2 in quant. Also, I kept practicing on OG11
questions. Attempted maybe 100 questions in all.
2) Took GMAT Prep on 3/31/2010 and scored a measly 500 (Q36 (or 46, I will let you know), V23). Remember, I havent yet started preparation for verbal yet. I started it only on 4/2/2010 and have come to know my weaknesses and I am working on it.
3) Downloaded error log
and I found that most of the mistakes I am doing are in DS.
Now, my questions(Keep in mind that I have only 2 months now):
1) The biggest difficulty I am facing right now is that I dont know if there are any books out there that have chapter wise questions. I have seen KAplan
online and it does not have chapter wise questions. So can somebody recommend a good book that has chapter wise question in it? (And a good healthy number, not just 5 questions per chapter, like most of the books have). And yes, I am scouring for the chapter wise questions on the forum right now. Till now, I have only come across a word document having Probability and Permutations, combinations.
2) And, I know this is kinda redundant, but I would appreciate, if somebody having a two month prep plan can share his/her plan with me. I know its quite an effort, so I would not mind if nobody comes up with a plan.
Also, I have noticed that Princeton review
's Crack the GMAT is not for people aiming for 680+(such as myself). It paints a real simple picture of GMAT and creates an impression that its a cakewalk and that you can attempt almost every question using POE. lol...
