Need advice regarding my GMAT study plan [#permalink] New post 02 Dec 2009, 19:44
I started my gmat prep a month ago and i am kind of stuck at this point and looking for advice on how to further my preparation.

I have taken guidelines for my study plan from bb's gmat study plan for novices and formulated my own plan and held to it for a month. Now after one month into the study plan i am kind of stuck and looking for advice in rehashing my approach.

Here is what I've done so far
- Took GMAT diagnostic test to check my intial point, scored Q 29 and V 24.
- Bought all 4 MGMAT quant study guides and kaplan math workbook in addition to OG 11 ed and quantitative review.
- In the past month , I have worked only on math. Reviewed basics and worked on math problems of kaplan math workbook. While at it I also finished reading Manhattan NP and FDP study guide.
- Now looking back into last month ,so far i have completed arithmetic section of kaplan work book and Manhattan NP and Decimals,fractions and percentages study guides.

My question is - should I continue working on math alone i.e continue working on algebra and geometry and after finishing up with those, start Verbal or should I start Verbal in parallel. I have been working on kaplan math workbook problems and MGMAT study guide in action problems in parallel.. is this a good approach? Looking for advice.

Thanks
Ananth

Hello ananthv,

Your approach to quant is fine. That being said, you do not need to take a practice test to assess progress on quant alone. You should be able to look at your progress over the time spent studying and (hopefully) see an improvement in approach and an improvement in the # of correct answers.

Are you using an error log to maintain progress? This is key to identify shortcomings along the way and adjust your study plan accordingly.

I personally believe you should move to verbal now. You have spent a good amount of time on quant and now it is time to study verbal, and then take another practice test to assess your progress and adjust your study plan accordingly.

Thanks Mohater for the advice.

I just started using an error log and i am doing entries where am going wrong and also entering problems which i was unable to solve. You are right about verbal - I have started working on MGMAT SC guides.

Hi All,
I have already taken my GMAT date for July 18th and started my preparation in beginning of May.
But , till now i have only managed to complete Quant Section of OG13 , with an overall accuracy rate of approximately 72 % .
My study pattern has been very erratic, a result of which, is i can study on weekends only for like 3 hrs or so.


i am looking for some advice on what my study plan should be for getting a score of 710+ in less than 2 months, and how to stay motivated all along.

My profile : -
Age 32
Experience - 8 years
Indian IT Male,

Please advice

There is nothing to say on your plan this much enough to prepare for GMAT.

Expert's post
If you are in your intense study stage -- I would recommend focusing just on quant and ignore verbal for the time being. Then when you are done, you can focus intensely on verbal and ignore quant. Then mix the two together.

In the very beginning it's good to mix the two to get a sense of the various types of questions. But once you begin your hardcore, serious studying -- we recommend the approach above.
