My draft study plan for the last month. [#permalink] New post 30 Oct 2006, 18:09
Hi,

I've been around this forum for 2 months, and I've done a great deal of good questions from various posters. G-day will be on Dec 5th, so I have roughly a month of time left.

Here is my plan, especially designed for the full-length tests I haven't done:

I've done PR 1: 690. Kaplan 1: 590. (exactly 100 difference.)

This is my test plan for the next and final month:

Now to Nov 4: continue studying Kaplan 800 and get something done for AWA.

Week 45: Nov 4, Sat: GMAT Prep 1.

Week 46: Nov 11, Sat: PR 2;
Nov 12, Sun: Kaplan 2.
(Kaplan tests end here. I don't put too much weight on its score.
Probably I will only go for its Math Sections of the rest 2 CATs. )

Week 47: Nov 18, Sat: PR 3.

Week 48: Nov 22, Wed, work leave: Power Prep 1;
Nov 25, Sat: PR 4.

Week 49: Nov 29, Wed, work leave: Power Prep 2;
Dec 2, Sat: GMAT Prep 2.

Week 50: Dec 3-4, Sun-Mon : review mistakes and notes;
Dec 5, Tue: Ready for 9AM.


I am finishing the Kaplan 800 in a few days. I still have OG 11 left for the last month. I study 2 hours each weekday from 6 to 8AM before work. On weekends, I will do these tests and review them, and do questioned posted in the forum. I seldom study in the evenings, because I am tired and sleepy. And my test is in the morning at 9AM.


So what do you think of my full-length test plan? Is it OK for the last 2 weeks to arrange like this? And will OG 11 be enough for study 1 month? I somehow feel I may finish it before the test day.

Thanks and feel absolutely free to advise. :-D

I am no expert but it looks fine to me...and I think everyone has to look at what works best for themselves personally.

Here is what I am dong (I am planning on taking the test around the same time as you:
1) Finish OG 11
2) Take Remaining GMATPrep and MGMAT test AND re-install GMATPrep and take 2 more test (I hear there are very few repeats).
3) Review some specific subjects I still have trouble with
4) Finsh basic math (high school math) review books

I do not plan on taking any Kaplan testS - for me they do not resemble the actual GMAT very much. Also PowerPrep has many of the same question as OG 10 & 11 and the score can be mis-leading (I took both and got scores in the 700's but I saw a ton of questions I came across in the OG).

Tests Taken so far:
MGMAT - 630 w/essays (Taken 10/7 after 2 + weeks of studying)
MGMAT - 640 w/essays (Taken 10/8)
GMATPrep - 670 (Q 40/V 41) no essays (Taken on 10/22 after a month + of studying)
Princeton Review - well you know the problem I have with my CD but I think I did OK so I won't be taking anymore of those tests. I thought the questions were quite good though and would help in prep.

Hmm.

Is it true that GMATprep repeats few questions after being reinstalled?

Also PowerPrep repeats a lot of questions in the OG11?

If so, I'd better re-install the GMATprep and skip the PowerPrep.
I think Kaplan Math is worth doing. you can click through the Verbal if you don't want to do, and have a fun time seeing your luck rate. :lol:

Also PowerPrep repeats a lot of questions in the OG11? Again this is what I have read on the forum. I DO know for sure that PowerPrep has many of the same questions from OG 10 (thus I had very inflated scores in my opinion).

If so, I'd better re-install the GMATprep and skip the PowerPrep.

I just took PowerPrep 1 before I start with OG 11, and got 720.
Is it inflated or not? I saw 2 or 3 questions that I did before, but not many of them. But my Verbal timing is still off, I had to guess the last few questions, but guessed about 1/2 right though.
