How was your routine? Q for succesful GMAT takers! [#permalink] New post 18 May 2011, 21:29
This question is for the succesful GMAT takers who have achieved a score over 700.

In my preparation, I have followed the advices of some of you. In the Verbal section, I am doing this:
a) In SC, I review every OE of the OG, even those questions that I answered correct. (It works!, you develop the skill to identify more errors in every question).
b) I studied very well the MGMAT SC and Powerscore CR. (They are good!)
c) I am using the Error log. (it is helpful).

However, all of these actions consume a lot of time! Therefore, I don't have enough time for Quant. Please, could you tell me how your daily routine was. Maybe I am doing many things. Your advices will be very helpful.

Clarification question - are you asking for routine for Quant or Verbal or both?

I don't want to come off lazy but you can find my detailed routine here in this post: gmat fiction.

In summary, I have spent my time going through verbal books (kaplan verbal workbook) for the strategy. I have used a grammar book for SC to brush up (Kaplan was not enough), and then I just read a LOT. i think that's what helped me but I don't have any scientific evidence except my score. Hope this helps.

Oh yes, one more thing - study in the morning. Early morning if you have to. Go to bed early and wake up early so you can capture your brain when it is (hopefully) most productive. I did that too.

Good Luck!
