Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I am doing GMAT preparation since August of this year, and planning to take the test in December. I would like to document my GMAT journey here as I move forward towards the D-Day.
I am working in software industry and a non-native English speaker. I am in US for last four+ years now, and I feel my English is good when it comes to day to day conversations. However, when it comes to GMAT, I am still in the range of 30-35 in verbal, and wish to improve the score to get the dream score of 700+. I have never taken GMAT before, and hope to finish this journey on first attempt. I seek your help in terms of directions and guidance so I can balance family, work and GMAT all together and still achieve my goal.
I am not sure if I can edit this area later, but if I can, I will continue to edit this area and put more details, and summarize advices I have been given.
Thank you for your participation, and Best wishes to you in case you are planning to take GMAT.

Thank you resh. I have completed OG for SC and OG PS. I haven't started other sections yet.
I have gone through MGMAT SC book once, but haven't completed all exercises yet. Also, I am not getting enough motivation to go through OG SC again, and may be I need some more time before I do it again.
I am going through OG verbal review SC questions. When I went through OG SC questions, I just marked answers that I felt were correct. This time, I am marking correct answers, as well as noting down what is incorrect with other ones. It is taking little more time, but the web of wrong answers is not looking as complicated as it was looking earlier.
Also, thanks for your suggestion on using Powerscore bible. It's a good point. I need to determine if I will have enough time to go through it though. I haven't gone through OG CR, OG RC, OG DS yet, so that is my first priority. _________________
I am also in the process of studying MGMAT SC. I am done with Chapters 1 to 10 and am yet to start the last 3 "Advanced chapters". I am a non-native English speaker. Of the portions I have completed so far, I really feel the need to do more revision. So, I am reading thru the notes and flashcards for these portions as and when I get a chance.
Also, as I do the SC questions for each chapter in OG, I am noting down the explainations for every wrongly answered question. I am not getting detailed explainations of what went wrong in OG, so I usually do a search for the questions in GMAT Club and often I find multiple threads discussing the question and providing detailed explainations . Yeah !! The whole process is pretty time consuming, but I am hoping that after couple of rounds of this "excercise", it will get better.
You are already very close to your target score of 700+. All the best with your preparations.
hi there, my 2 cents for the MGMT verbal guides, do the revision once you are done the initial reading of the book, I have done the mistake of reading the book/ doing questions jumping over to quant and now there is a huge break between my verbal prep and revision, I picked up MGMT SC the other day and it was ALL NEW:( all the best with GMAT!
Hey, Just noticed you have joined recently, gmat-club-tests-free-open-access-88231.html do check it out, you will be ready to tackle 'em as you mentioned you will be giving gmat sometime in dec. I have heard their questions on quant/verbal are of 700+ level, its great you get to have access for free! I will miss it unfortunately as I am traveling but all the best, hopefully these will be the hard practice material you are looking for, All the best, Cheers,
added two more scores. Need some tips for RC as I don't have any confident strategy yet. For CR, need some guidance for tough problems because I get them wrong even when I take unlimited time. _________________
