Hi! I have a month left in my GMAT studies (well, for the first time I'm giving a shot at the exam) and I'm wondering what the best strategy is.
I'm enrolled in the MGMAT Online Live course and have 2 classes left but I've finished all the materials early and more. My weakness is quant, so I focus about 75% of my time on quant and the rest on verbal. Right now I'm in the mid 600's and aiming for 700+, no matter how many times it takes.
I'm a little unsure about the best way to tackle this last month... I've heard different strategies, from people taking practice tests every few days for a month, to reviewing past OG material/questions from past exams to make sure I've mastered everything I've done already (especially the mistakes). Right now, I'm kind of doing a hybrid of the two: ramping up the frequency of my practice tests as well as hardcore reviewing questions I've done to scrape for new strategies to solve, make sure I understand why I got them wrong, make sure I can do them again under 2:00, etc.....
What do you guys suggest?
Thanks so much in advance!!!
There isn't much you are going to learn from practice tests. The GMAT questions will be different from what you see on practice tests so you cannot hope to get lucky! Plus, taking too many tests will exhaust you mentally. Try to focus on the topics in which you make maximum mistakes. Do lots of practice questions. Ensure that you UNDERSTAND everything really well. That is what will count in the real thing.
Hopefully, you wont need to take the test a second time.
