My GMAT prep plan (detailed)-comments invited [#permalink] New post 21 Aug 2012, 10:57
Hi All,

I intend to take my GMAT by november 30th,3 months from now.
My diagnostic score is 530 V26 Q36.Clearly I need improvement at both quant and verbal.
My target score is 680 V 36 Q47-i.e a 10 point increase in both quant and verbal.I am ready to do whatever it takes to achieve this end.i have already gone through power score CR bible and the first 4 MGMAT books once.I took a practise test after two months of prep fron june to august and was shattered.470 Q37 v19.So I have decided to start everything afresh(2 hrs a day on week days , 6 hrs a day on weekends)...

This is my prep plan:

Materials:

Quant-MGMAT
SC - MGMAT+e-gmat SC course
CR - Power score CR bible
RC - Veritas prep + e-gmat RC course

Daily activities-

1)Reading comprehension 2 passages every day before sleep fro Aug 20 to Oct 13(50 hrs) by integrating e-gmat RC strategies.
2)VERBAL DAYS:Mon,tue,Wed(mornings) - Verbal+3 or 4 OG problems(medium difficulty) from the covered topic
3)QUANT DAYS:Thu,Fri(mornings) - Quant+3 or 4 OG problems(medium difficulty) from the covered topic
4)Sat-Weekly review of topics covered in the past week+Practise test
5)Sun- Practise test review

Verbal:

Aug 12 - Sep 5 - SC (Theory=40 hours on VERBAL days)
Sep 5 - Oct 13 - CR(Theory=39 hours on VERBAL days)+SC practise(moderate-hard) from Grockit-only on verbal days
By October 13 - would have completed atleast 50 RC passages

Quant:

Finish each MGMAT strategy guide in 10 hrs time.

Aug23-Aug 31 - finish Number Properties
Sep 9 - finish FDPs + practise of Covered topics in Quant on Grockit-only on Math days
Sep 23 - finish EIV + practise of Covered topics in Quant on Grockit-only on Math days
Oct 5 - finish Word Problems + practise of Covered topics in Quant on Grockit-only on Math days
Oct 13- finish Geometry + practise of Covered topics in Quant on Grockit-only on Math days

OG Practise.
Oct 13 - Nov 20 - Dedicated for OG Practise.
VERBAL DAYS-Roughly 10 questions each from SC,CR,RC on verbal days
QUANT DAYS-Roughly 30 questions and their review each day

Practise tests:

Start from October 13 - November 17- 1 each week for 6 weeks

Final Lap:

leave from office for two weeks.(Nov 17 - Nov 31)
GMAT day- Nov 30.

At the end of each topic ,I plan to take couple of day's leave- both as a reward for completing my studies and as a recharge for the next topic.

Hopefully ,I will get to 680 V 36 Q 47 at the end of this mammoth effort.

Will keep you guys posted on my progress.

Btw,Pl do send in your comments.

Your plan looks great! (Do stick to the plan(come what may!))
Suggestions:
1. Do make a error log and keep on updating it.
2. Make a progress chart
Prepare a xls sheet (topic by topic).. and keep a track of your progress on a daily basis. Use color coding (Red,Orange,Green).
Red: You are weak in theory - brush up your concepts.
Orange - Done with theory but weak in application of the concepts
Green - Done with the topic

3. Regarding practice I will suggest you something like this
For i=1 to end
For i=1 to end
-> Study "chapter i"
-> go to grockit.com and schedule game for "chapter i" with difficulty level easy, If doing good then increase the difficulty to "medium" else go to next step
-> re-read the "chapter i" if you are doing bad
-> else goto next chapter and repeat the above steps.

-> practice a LOT on grockit.com!


4. Also, Do practice IR and AWA before writing mock tests and always write the full mock test with exam conditions(no disturbance, proper timing, write in the same timeslot as you are going to write your actual exam)

Good Luck for your preperations!
