Thanks! I have work this week Monday through Wednesday so I will not be able to take full exams at this point... or at least I don't think they will help me in any way if I will take them after 10 hours of work. After reading some success stories on this forum, I also realized that I do not want to burn myself out by taking a practice exam a day or two before the actual thing.
My schedule is as follows:Monday-
2 to 2.5 hours of study on SC and hard CR - main focus here is to keep good pace and try to maintain accuracy 80%Tuesday-
same as Monday + 2 tough RC passagesWednesday-
work then hang out with friends/relax at nightThursday-
go over some tough math problem for 2 hours; 2 tough RC passages; 10 RC; 10 SC and minor review of SC notes I haveFriday morning-
practice AWA under timed conditions; practice 15 Integrated reasoning and review incorrect IR from previous weekFriday afternoon/evening-
go to gym, hang out with friendsSaturday (test day)-
Quant I should get a q49 (hopefully Q50). Verbal - my strategy will be to make sure i keep good pace in beginning even if it means getting extra 2-3 questions wrong. As I learned, getting 4-5 wrong in a row at the end will lower your score significantly. If i do this I should be able to get above a v35 (hopefully v37-39)
Also, I keep getting 4s and 5s on my IR, but I do not think it will matter as long as I get a 700+ and a good AWA score.
Ah, I hadn't yet heard of the new GMAT Exam Pack. Thanks for clarifying.
You have a week left to prep, so focus on the areas that you feel will give you the most rapid improvement on both Verbal and Quant. I recommend either one or two more full CATs to get you tuned up for the official thing:
two: Tues and Thurs
Take the day before your test off from prep to rest up mentally. Get some nice hard exercise to help yourself sleep that night and deal with stress. Good luck!
