My Study Plan - Please Review [#permalink] New post 07 Feb 2012, 19:56
Hello!
I have purchased the following books to prepare for the exam and now I am trying to piece an appropriate study plan

1. Manhattan GMAT Study Guides (5 Quant, 3 Verbal)
2. MGMAT - Advanced GMAT Quant Supplement
3. MGMAT Foundations of GMAT Math
4. MGMAT Foundations of GMAT Verbal
5. Kaplan GMAT 800
6. MGMAT Official Guide Companion
7. Powerscore - Critical Reasoning Bible
8. Official Guide GMAT Review
9. Official Guide for Quant Review
10. Official Guide for Verbal Review

This is a large selection of books and I am trying to take the exam by mid to late April.

My plan was to go through the study guides and than tackle many of the problems in the official guide. And take as many as practice tests as possible after that.

Finish at least 1 study guide a week and spend all of April taking exams and solidifying those areas where I am weak using the remaining books as practice.

Please let me know if this sounds like a reasonable plan and what you would do with these given books.

Feb & March = MGMAT Study Guides & Problems + Official Guide
April = Practice Tests & Review


Appreciate your input

You have a lot of content.

Start off with a practice test and THEN decide what order to go in through the books. You want to make sure you make the most improvement on your weakest section/subsection as you score is only as good as your weakest area.

Start with the diagnostic test. It doesnt matter whether you take the offical GMAT Prep, GMAT Diagnostic or gmatclub Q test. Get an overview of your current situation. It all depends on your ability to comprehend and to apply concepts and whether you target 700+ or 600.

Content looks good and should be enough to cover all topics in detail. So get started and practice, practice, and practice

Your plan is pretty solid. I would throw in the gmatclub math tests to make sure you maximize your quant score potential. Other than that, it looks like you are on the right track.

Hey, ur plan is very general as of now...
Till you don't post ur gmatprep diagnostic result here, no one can actually tell you which particular book u must read first and which one in the end.
rather a good study plan goes from weakest section to strongest section...so better give a test right away , post the result and then only a strategy can be derived...all the best..

You have a lot of content. As everyone said take a practice exam. I would recommend a MGMAT as their analytics are better.

if your score is below 500 - start with foundations of math and verbal
500-600 - start with either Kaplan Premier for a concise overview of material. Alternatively you can start attacking the MGMAT guides.
600 and up - Start with MGMAT books focusing with weakest area first... use OG to get practice.

Focus on learning rather than covering a ton of content. As others said, take a practice test, explore your strength and weaknesses and then decide. Good luck!
