Hi, I decided about 2 weeks ago to take the GMAT. Panicked a little, and joined a Kaplan
prep course. Fast forward to now-- I've been studying, keeping up with the course material. Doing the quizzes etc. Started to do problems out of their course material. All of this takes so much time! I take about 5-6 hrs/day to study.
I feel my progress is very slow and I don't know if I"m doing things as efficiently as possible. And honestly, my scores are abyssmal to begin with-- I got a 370 on Kaplan
Cat 2 (which is a 570 on the gmatestimator)and after studying for another week, I received a lower score than that on Kap Cat 3! I know i'm smarter than that, but I panic and get tired. And obviously I need more practice. I don't know why I"m not progressing.
I took the Kap course hoping it would lead me to constant progress. And-- its not or I'm doing something terribly wrong.
Also, I'm so overwhelmed with all this strategy info on the web, courses to follow etc. I only wanted to look at one method, one course. This one course is taking up so much time-- do I need to buy the OG or Pinceton Review books in addition and tack on more studying hours?!?!
I plan on taking the test Jan6th or very soon after. I have to break 700, so I can possibly get a scholarship at a local school (which is another reason why I took the Kap course). Can I actually do this? Opinions? Suggestions?
Any advice, wisdom is greatly, immensely appreciated
