How much time is needed to do well in IR? [#permalink] New post 04 Jul 2013, 09:10
I am scoring 48-49 in quant and 40+ in verbal section on the GMAT Prep test. I want to schedule the exam but I haven't started studying for IR section. So my question is, how much time and effort is needed to do well on this section? I would be happy with 6 or more.

Thanks.

The 150 Hours Rule of Thumb




"One of the most fundamental concepts to understand about your GMAT prep is how much time you'll need to devote to your studies. Prior to the recent test change, which saw the inclusion of the Integrated Reasoning section into the GMAT, we recommended 100-120 hours of prep time in order to achieve a 700+ score. With the new section added, however, and the extra skills study that goes along with it, we recommend devoting 120-150 hours of prep time to land that same sort of score."

From it follows that from total of 120-150 hours of preparation you should spend approximately 30 hours or more learning about integrated reasoning data sets and the new question types that accompany them.

Hope it helps.
