I just discovered this site a few days back and its a great site ! Great work by the people who keep this site up.
I was planning to take my GMAT on the 13th of July,2005 and i have been studying for it for the past 7 weeks. But after i took a Kaplan
test about 20 days back and bombed it with a 540 i decided to postpone the test. However i took the first PP test 2 days back and got a 660( scaled scores : quant 45 and verbal : 35 and overall percentile : 87 ). I am gunning for 700+ score, so i have decided to give myself some more time to take my GMAT on the 18th of August.
I have the following prep material with me :
2005 book + CDROM
Now my curent prep status : I have worked through all the problems in the Kaplan
book(i have a few more section tests left in the CD. i have taken 3 full length Kaplan
tests with 550,570,540 scores) and done about 100 questions(the inital and middle questions) from OG. I realise that these questions are easy, and after reading the posts on these forums, i have decided to do the last 100 of every type.
Also i feel that my verbal and quant skills are equally balanced and that i need improvement in both, i am not particularly strong in either.
Now my questions are :
a) What additional material should i work through ( i have read here that Kaplan
workbooks and GMAT 800
are good, which of these should i buy and which is more appropriate for me, given my current situation ?)
b) Suggestions on what kind of a study plan to use from now on. ( i have about 2-3 hours of study time everyday and all weekend )
Looking forward to hearing your suggestions.
