My Study Plan and Suggestions [#permalink] New post 06 Jun 2012, 20:19
Hi All,

My 1st attempt score was 540(q-46 v-19).

This time in want to crack this hard nut. I am planning to take GMAT by last week of july 2012.

Here is what I have been following for the last 4 days.

Morning Session: (6am to 12pm):
5 vocabularies.
3 RC questions (1 easy, 1 medium and 1 difficult) --> Material Aristotle
1 chapter of CR --> Material CR Bible and work on relevant questions from OG12.
10 SC questions --> Material OG 12 [Note: Already completed 100 SC question from Aristotle. still not satisfied with performance]

Noon Session:(from 2pm)
1 video of Ron MGMAT, i.e. around 1hr and 30 mins.
5 vocabularies.
another 10 SC questions.

Evening: (from 6.30 pm)
1 Major topic of CR + relevant CR questions from OG12.
5 idioms
5 vocabularies.

NOTE: Breaks are included in each session. Each break is of 30min max.

Please suggest me if this plan if good. [ I'll be following this plan for this week. Next week i'll start quants.]

Hello,

Based on your last GMAT score, I definitely agree with your decision to focus on the Verbal side of things. Keep practicing OG Quant problems, but always focus on your weaknesses!

Sounds like the GMAT has become a full-time job for you! The most important point I want to emphasize here is that you need to remain focussed on quality of study even when you are doing a large quantity of study.

    • Any time you feel less than fully focussed, go ahead and take a break, even if you have not reached a scheduled break.
    • Do OG problems in short sets. Review them carefully before moving on to more OG problems.
    • On problems you answered correctly, think about how you could have arrived at that answer more efficiently. Try to understand and classify the wrong answers as well.
    • On problems you answered incorrectly, don't focus exclusively on the correct answer. Instead, try to understand the mistake you made and think about how you are going to avoid similar mistakes in the future.

Overall, though, it sounds like you have a good plan, and you certainly sound sufficiently motivated!

Good luck!

Mark
