How to revise every week ? [#permalink] New post 23 Jun 2014, 06:01
I have gone through studying all the different sections and i am now solving problems from the OG every day + revising some old modules.
Basically i spend 4 days solving from OG + picking one topic to concentrate revision on. Then i spend one day revising and another day solving a full CAT.
I want to get advise on how to revise in one day, what is the best way ? Should i go about solving new problems or going through the mistakes i did throughout the week or skimming through all the topics ?

Let me know how do you revise before taking a full CAT and what worked best for you ?

Hi there,

I'd love to help you, but what do you mean by "revise?" Do you mean review?

Let me know!

Great GMAT scores depend on several factors – some we cannot fully control, and others we should and must control.

One of controllable factors is knowledge. Its acquisition is certainly achievable. We teach you and you learn! Simple, right?

Well ... not totally. Most GMAT takers study and invest time, effort and money to try to achieve their target scores. So why doesn't everyone succeed at the GMAT?

Some GMAT test preppers do not learn from their mistakes. It may shock you, but as an instructor, the answers you get correct don't really interest me.

Of course I am happy with correct answers. But more interesting to me is the why the student makes mistakes and how he or she can gain an understanding of these mistakes. When you understand, internalize and recognize patterns, your mistakes will decrease.

Debriefing can take much longer than the time it takes to answer the question. How to debrief:
Read the explanations provided for each incorrect answer for the course. There is much to learn from other answer choice explanations.
Examine each question and ask:
Can I recognize the concepts tested?
What could I have done differently?
Is there a recurring pattern?
Why did I pick the wrong answer/eliminate the right answer?
Was my mistake the result of carelessness, speed, or simply lack of knowledge, lack of utilizing a technique or forgetting what concepts to apply?
Do I feel more confident now that I will be able to better recognize what to do the next time I face a similar question?
Do I now know what techniques should be applied?
In summary:
Learn the reason you got a question wrong by debriefing during your practice.
Your goal should be to understand, internalize, and recognize the patterns, ultimately applying the knowledge gained.
