How to Attack - Weaknesses Determined [#permalink] New post 09 Dec 2009, 13:17
I have completed my error logs for CR, DS, and PS (Questions I had trouble with/ones I got wrong in OG11). I'm very strong at RC, and atrocious at SC.

I'm going to worry about RC later, as for SC I just bought Manhattan SC.

My test date is in 7 weeks, and I'd like to be at 700+ by then, I've scored 590 and 610 (44Q, 34V) on my last two GMATPreps. I have about 150 math questions to review, some CR (30-40 or so), and I need to teach myself everything about SC.

I have on average 3 hours a day to study until the date... this is my plan, please tell me where I'm going wrong!

- 2 Days (3 hours at a time) review math problems in error log and learn the concepts. The third day, do one chapter of Manhattan SC, and answer the corresponding questions (putting those into error log). If there's time left, do some CR.

I hope to go through that system every 3 days until I'm scoring well, maybe trying some of the 700+ problems on GMATClub.

Does this look OK? Am I attacking the Manhattan SC Book correctly? I'm sure I'm not being descriptive enough on some points. Thanks everyone!!!!!

I think that's a great way to work through the Manhattan SC book. It's roughly the way we assign the work to our course students--only the pace might be different, as you plan to do a 3-day study rotation. In particular, it is fantastic that you are using an error log. If you weren't already planning to, I'd recommend timing each problem and keeping that data in your log--even for questions you get right. Who knows? You might see that time is a secondary indicator of trouble in certain topics. At the very least, you'll get a sense for the pace that is right for you.

The only other question I have: why 2 days math prep to 1 day of SC prep? I'm not saying that's inappropriate, but "atrocious" is a very strong word, so just wondering why you don't plan to do more SC up front?

You have a great point, I'll do the SC/SC/Math split to start, and then tailor it from there. How long does it generally take to finish one chapter of Manhattan SC and learn it pretty thoroughly? I guess I'll find out.
