MGMAT Problem Set - When to practice strategy? [#permalink] New post 08 Dec 2012, 15:48
What do you think is the better way to approach the practice problem:
1. Read each one of the guides and then do all the problems from OG13 that are recommended at the end of each MGMAT Guide?
2. Read all gudes 1-9 and the foundations guide and then practice all the problems?

What do you think? what are the cons and the pros? what has worked for each of you?

Thanks

better to do a guide, for istance the first one, then for the section suggested at the end of guide (for istance FDP) do problems in that sense from valuable source (veritas or mgmat).

After this do the same problems as suggested from the guide throughout the OG. In this way you consolidate much better the single concepts.

After this work (it takes several time though) go for a CAT (mgmat veritas princeton or whatever you want), then GMATprep.

;)

Really ..........:( I'm so sorry. yup the 1 point. this is more or less or should be your road map (though everyone have a strategy that fits with personal habits)

1) Doing a mgmat guide. Normally you will do them in sequence, of course

2) at the end of book there are the OG problems devide for area of contents: for istance FDP

3) find good questions from veritas or mgmat or use the search criteria here on the forum on the same area: both PS and DS

4) take notes, try to spot your weak areas and work on them

5) do problem from that area (FDP) following the enumeration suggested from mgmat guide (FDP) in the OG

6) after the 8 guides do a cat: for instance the cat from veritas prep or mgmat

7) do Gmatprep cat

NB: during this job try to analyse each question picked both right or wrong and try to figure out all the concepts tested and behind a question

Now I hope is clear

Approach 1 seems better. But after finishing all guides, indulge into more and more MIXED problem solving / practice questions
