Is this the Ultimate GMAT Study Plan? [#permalink] New post 01 May 2013, 12:11
Hello fellow GMAT preppers,

I thought I'd share my study plan in the hopes of 1) getting some feedback from everyone on if I'm doing things right, if I'm doing things wrong, if I'm crazy, opinions/etc., and 2) helping others see a what a good study plan does/doesn't consist of.

So here's my GMAT Study Plan:

Study Strategy:
-take a OG practice test just to familiarize myself with the type of test GMAT is
-begin by reading and taking notes in the MGMAT guides. I plan to read all of them cover to cover, as I have found that even the easiest of them offer great time savings strategies (time is my biggest obstacle in taking the GMAT)
-post/read gmatclub forum 1 x per week. Do the questions of the day every day.
-while reading the MGMAT guides, make flash cards. Before each new study session, go through existing flashcards at least once (helps me with retaining what I learned).
-Highlight all problems that take longer than 2:30 to complete in the MGMAT problem sets, or any that I get wrong (I use a timer on all questions, this helps with creating an internal clock of when exactly 2 mins is up).
-at the end of every MGMAT book, redo any highlighted problems.
-At the end of every 2-3 MGMAT books, take a practice test (MGMAT practice).
-When I have finished all MGMAT guides, I plan on reviewing my flashcards 3-4 times per week, and spending the remaining study time just doing practice problems from the OG (both guide and CAT), MGMAT (highlighted ones in guide, and CAT), and Gmatclub. I will log all wrong questions, and re-do these later, or possibly review the notes I wrote in the MGMAT books as needed. I plan on taking 1 full test (both verbal and math back to back) 1 x per week during this time period.
-Reevaluate study strategy as needed


Study Times:
-20 hours per week for 3 months
-first 2 months= learning (reading MGMAT, making flashcards, occasional practice tests)
-last 1 month= practice tests only, (review notes as needed).

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE GIVE ME FEEDBACK. so far I've been studying 2 weeks and think this is a good idea, but i'm just a newb, so the more help from others the better!!!!

Almost forgot: I also am devoted to exercising daily during this time and "GMAT enjoyment Reading" every night...I've heard doing these things help people score better, but I think it will also just help me with keeping my sanity during such a busy time :)
