Just some stats for me to begin with:
-Using MGMAT (Recently acquired a Powerscore CR
because didn't seem like the MGMAT CR
strategy was working for me)
-CAT #1 (diagnostic): 570
-CAT #2: 640 (Q44, V34)
-CAT #3: 600 (Q40, V33)
-CAT #4: 600 (Q39, V34)
After a thorough analysis of my CATs to figure out my strengths and weaknesses, I created a list of topics I am weak in for each section.
CR: Weakening, Inference
SC: Comparisons, parallelism, Idioms
RC: specific detail
Quant: (fractions decimals percentages), geometry (lines, angles & polygons mostly), Algebra (inequality mostly) & RUNNING OUT OF TIME
Now with these topics, I went back to each strategy guide and spent quality time to review the concepts thoroughly and tested my knowledge using OG problems. I timed myself strictly. Gave myself about 90 sec for SC, and 120 sec for Quant & other Verbal questions.
Until I take another CAt at the end of this week, I plan on doing timed problem sets (to manage pacing) for Quant & doing timed problem sets for Verbal (with a mix of questions to improve agility). I seem to miss RC questions not beacuse I don't understand the passage, but because I'm tired & lose focus after a series of CR questions.
I plan on taking another CAT at the end of this week, but am I on the right track with my prep? I'm scheduled to take the GMAT in 4 weeks, and I want to make sure I am utilizing my time efficiently!
I appreciate any feedback you guys can give me. Thank you!
Yes, things seem to be in order. Work on your weaknesses and do timed practice tests. Study for long stretches of time so that you develop stamina for D-day. Very often people mess up verbal not because they are bad at it but because they get exhausted.
