Manhattan GMAT - Prep Strategies [#permalink] New post 16 Aug 2012, 06:27
I just started preparing from the GMAT using the Manhattan guide. My initial plan is to allocate 6 weeks to the math section, 6 for CR and then a few additional weeks for the review. However, I have a dilemma on how to go over the math materials.

For instance, Manhattan has 5 math books, and each book lists problems from the OG that are related to that particular book. Do you guys think I should go over all 5 books first and then look at the problems in the OG, or should I complete one book, then work on the related problems, and then move on to the next book....

I am looking forward for some valuable advice.

Thanks

Hi,

I have not done Manhattan books but if I did then I would have completed one chapter and then would have done related problems from OG and also would have done problems from other sources like gmatclub and grockit!

Hope it helps!

Instead of reading through all the books and then going back to complete the OG problems, we recommend doing the In Action and OG problems after each section to test your understanding.

If you know that you don’t know the content covered in a Strategy Guide chapter, are shaky and/or rusty on the material, or feel that there must be a faster way than how you currently approach the subject, read the chapter. Create a cheat sheet for the chapter by taking notes on key points that you want to remember, but don’t yet have memorized. Then, test your learning by completing all of the In Action problems at the end of the chapter. Make sure to check your answer and review the solution after completing each problem—not after completing the whole set. There is no better way to internalize how not to do something correctly than to repeat an incorrect method fifteen times in a row!

If you know that you know the content covered in a Strategy Guide chapter, quiz yourself to prove it! Turn to the In Action problems at the end of the chapter. They are listed from easiest to hardest, so try numbers 3 and 8. If you do not get those problems right, read the chapter. If you do get those problems right, complete numbers 11–15. Make sure to check the answers after completing each problem. If you get them all right, move on to the next chapter. If you get them mostly right, skim the chapter and focus in on the pieces of information that you need to fill the holes in your knowledge.

If the Strategy Guide leaves you confused, it is likely that you have holes in the foundational knowledge on which the GMAT content is built. While reading the Strategy Guide, refer back to the appropriate chapters of the Foundations books, as needed, to fill in these gaps.

Once you test your knowledge of the concepts with the In Action problems, do the related OG problems to see how those concepts will be tested on the real GMAT. Complete OG problems in sets and time yourself (give yourself the same amount of time for each question that you would have on the GMAT) in order to better prepare yourself for test day.

Hope this helps.

Matt
