How Long Should I spend on MGMAT GUIDES? [#permalink] New post 19 May 2011, 17:14
I just purchased the MGMAT Guides yesterday and am almost done the first book (number property, Advanced topics left). I would like to take the test on September 2nd. My quant is not too bad (43Q) on the gmatprep. However, I bombed verbal with 22V. My question is that..in general..how long should I spend on MGMAT Guides? Especially the first five books since I am concentrating solely on quant at the moment.

I am asking this because I may need more than a month to prepare for verbal but at the same time I want to achieve 50+ Q. What should I do once I finish the MGMAT Guides...Should I get addition books like Kaplan and do their questions?

Thank you in advance.

43 on Gmat Prep is like a 40 on the real thing. To get to 50, you need to do a lot of work.

It's not about quantity but quality. Some people can learn everything in a few days and some need a few months. Stop studying MGMAT when you know the material very well. After that the quant question on this site are excellent in addition to the GMAT club tests.

So you think MGMAT covers all the content that I need to know for GMAT? After I cover the MGMAT concepts thoroughly, do you think I should just practice questions after questions?

All GMAT questions are based on certain fundamental concepts. GMAT will try and trick you by combining concepts, asking questions in a tricky way, for example. The key is to learn the fundamental concepts, MGMAT guides, and apply those same concepts to more difficult problems.

Hi, Mahtab!

I think, you are the guy who sent me email the other day. You are from BD? I am from there but live in Kabul.
It's really good to prep using MGMAT books. By the way, which edition of MGMAT books are you talking about?

All the best with your journey!

While preparing with MGMAT guides and practicing OG questions, I would suggest using the MGMAT's OG Archer. If you want the free version, Lite would be a good tool to track mistakes and areas of weakness. Below is the link
