My study Plan [#permalink] New post 27 Dec 2004, 10:14
I had planned on taking the GMAT about the 2nd week in december, but when I tried to sign up I noticed it was not offered until early january. I had worked hard till about the first week in december, but have only done a little bit of preperation since then. I was very busy getting everything ready for Christmas, but am now ready to start again. I am very strong in verbal and only need work in math.

I'd really like to finally get this exam over with, and would like some feedback with how I plan to study. I'm going to do a practice test in the morning, then work on answering questions in this forum in the afternoon. Later on in the day I'll try some kaplan questions, and do 37OG problems (22PS, 15DS) at night. Does that sound like a good schedule or is there anything I should change? Do you think I'll get burned out doing that much?

Should I be reviewing any concepts such as the review guide in the OG or a math book?

Hello todd

It sounds like a good schedule. In addition, I would strongly advise that you buy alteast some of the challenges and practise with them.

At the end of every day, this is what i recommend doing:

-- Ask yourself, what did i really learn about Math or Verbal concepts today? ....Note your observations either by recording it on a tape recorder or taking very simple and clear notes. Review these notes every single day. Your objective should always be to learn and improve.

-- If you got some problems right by guessing or if you got some problems wrong, do what you need to learn more about these problems. What can you do to eliminate these errors? Again, you need to take good notes and implement these from that day forward. The key here is to NOT make the same mistake twice.

This will ensure that you learn from your prep every day and apply those lessons the following day and after. Its also very important that you practise with quality problems.

Finally, remember that the test is blind to your preparation. No matter how well prepared you are, expect the unexpected. You can be sure to see wierd problems. GMAT is all about effectively using basic concepts to solve unlimited number of problems.

How well you do depends on whether you can minimize your errors, keep your focus on ONE problem at a time and manage your time.
