? I'm using MGMAT right now. I'm alright with CR, but have difficulty with 700 level questions for that area.
yep alerady have started! I was thinking of doing every 2nd, or even every 3rd, question in each guide. This will cut the momentous 1800 questions down to 600, which on top of the 400 from OG and 150 + questions from the Q.Review, should be around 1000 questions, probably a lot more manageable in the shgort time frame.
Btw, how did you study verbal?
While 1000 questions sounds great, try to push yourself to the limit. You might be surprised at how far you can go. For verbal, I used the Manhattan SC
, Powerscore CR
, and Powerscore RC
. For question practice, the OG is essential. I also used the LSAT SuperPrep
, which is a decent source. Read each explanation carefully. The GMATClub forums, of course, have many good verbal questions. Try to answer those and defend your choice with a solid explanation. That helps quite a bit.
I'm also reading some good reviews about Jeff Sackmann's books. What do you guys think about NOVA's GMAT prep for quant and verbal part?
I don't know much about Nova. It doesn't receive that much coverage, so maybe the Manhattan math series is a safer bet. Still, if my memory is correct, bb stated that Nova had some decent stuff.
I have his book, Total Gmat math
, would you suggest buying the complete set of 1800, or just 1000 challenge set of questions. I have been away from math for a while, and really need to improve and get some practice.
It depends on where you stand in terms of quant performance. If you score somewhere in the 600-level for quant, then the challenges sets should be a good place to start. If you really need to start from the basics, then look for the fundamental sets. If you're a quant superstar, then focus on the GMATClub Tests
and Sackmann's Extreme Challenge set.
Good luck, everyone!
