Ok. A month more to go; OGs, MGMATS, GMAT club material and CATS is all I would focus on now, don't waste time on any other books, my test is on 8th sept, I am done with OG 12N OG verbal, 2 MGMAT quant guides, kaplan strategies book and will finish kaplan 800 this week. Then for 4.5 months its going to be only MGMATs, OGs,gmat club materials and CATs, I assume you are planning to give all MGMAT CATS, 6 of them.

It's funny, I had a dream last night that I got a 750 on the actual test...but a 0 on the AWA because I skipped it.

I think I'm gonna keep doing what I'm doing for now. Going through the MGMAT guides to build a foundation and doing practice sets to keep my mind working.

I'd like to do the GMATPrep tests, but I don't have access to a PC. Would MGMAT CATS be the next best thing?

MGMAT guides are the best stuff to be doing now, when you are doing the quant stuff it keeps tracking back to OGs which should be your focus of attention now; GMAT prep has only 2 tests, you need more CATs for practice, so MGMATs it is.

Took a MGMAT this morning and tried to simulate test conditions. Didn't write an actual AWA, but I wrote a few paragraphs and waited the whole hour so I could get used to the actual test length. Woke up at 7am and went to my apartment's computer lab to take it. It was pretty distracting because people were walking in and out all morning.

44Q (73%)
38V (85%)
680 (90%)

This test was really hard. I felt like most of the math questions I didn't know how to do and I guessed on quite a few of them. The verbal I felt I did decent. I haven't taken the time to analyze my mistakes yet, but when I saw my score, I was shocked. I thought I scored well under 600 because the math portion was so hard. I know that it's a good sign when the math is hard, but I recognized many of the problem types and I just did not know how to do them.

I did improve my verbal, and I attribute my improvement to watching the MGMAT class recordings and really just concentrating and focusing.

Exponents and manipulating equations (x in terms of y) are where I really struggle. I'm glad I got the score I did, but I'm not at the confidence level where I can do this well on the actual exam.

*UPDATE*
Q: 19 correct/18 incorrect. Towards the middle of the exam, I missed 5 questions in a row (600-700 and 700-800 before it went down to 500-600 which I got correct)

V: 25 correct/16 incorrect. Missed 5 in a row of 700-800 questions in the beginning of the test.
