Day 75 12.40AM

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MYSELF!!!!!!!!

Birthday resolution -------

1)Be helpful
2)Be kind
3)And crack that freaking test..........

Today i reviewed all DS ques from OG general not advanced for word trans....

Also practiced PS prob ratio Advanced 100% accuracy...

I am still thinking should i read ch 13 on cobinatorics and statistics....from word trans....
Because i read it somewhere that there is very less chace of that topic to appear and even if it does ..There might be just 1 or 2 ques.....
I have covered the basic part of combinatorics and probability..It was not very difficult for me....

But the now the question is about time......

I am already running behind my schedule....By 1st week of dec...have to cover 2 CAT's including 1st gmat prep + gc diagnostic........

Day 76,77 and 78..

Very less study in these 3 days....

completed ch 13 word trans....Still need to practice the problem set and few OG ques's....

Tested myself on Gmat club diagnostic test...

Here is my score break up...

4/15 == 650 Level difficulty

7/15 == 700 level

9/15 == 750 level
( And 3 incorrect due to calculation error...Almost i had 12/15 correct)

However i find this accuracy little weird because how can a person get the average/basic questions incorrect and getting 700 - 750 level correct mostly.....

Also after 2 months i am testing myself in any test..during this period i read MGMAT guide 1 and 4.....

Mostly i made errors in rate, geometry,algebra and combinatorics......

But again comming back to my question how is this possible?

also i am satisfied with the test in terms of finding and then poking holes in preparation without that its a blind study....

I know which all topics i need to practice now.....Have decided not to read from mgmat guide for some time rather GC club got a very nice book on gmat math...will read that also there are specific topic questions that i am going to find and start practicing.....

Have done the review till 31ques..still few ques left...

Tomorrow i will kick M25.....

Day 79 1.14AM

Completed GC diagnostic review took me around 3 hours...Wuuh long time..But i like reading all the explanations..After all these tests are also a good way to learn new concepts and strategies....

I am afraid that i have to stop studying gmat for 3 to 4 weeks as i have one more mba competative exam coming in 1st week of jan ...I just have one month to prepare for it...Lets see..i will try to revise all gmat concepts weekly....

I guess after that exam i can pace up and start doing CAT's....

Really i need some help from u. . . . my verbal score is very low around 19-21 in GMAT prep. How i could improve the verbal score.

I once read MGMAT SC and Power score SC bible. But wat ever i am not able to approach the verbal problem strategically. . i am just using my spoken knowledge to guess the answers.

Please advise me how to improve in verbal.

Thanks in Advance,

You have nice set of books, i would say read a chapter, complete the quiz, work on OG and dont move forward unless you have more that 85% accuracy. If accuracy is low go back to theory again and then practice questions from gc club verbal thread. Emphasize on error log and understand your weaken areas.

There is a big chance you will see improvement,if not, you may want to consider some different set of books(veritas or arirstotle) or courses (e-gmat).
