Need guidance - Targeting 700+ [#permalink] New post 10 Nov 2013, 23:56
Hi Guys,

Posting for the first time on this forum but have been a avid reader and really do appreciate the awesome work everyone does here.

Finally, I have scheduled my GMAT for 30-dec-2013 and need a bit of guidance.

Story So far:
Target Score: 700+
GMAT Prep Test 1 as a diagnostic test before starting my prep - 650(Q47/V32).
GMAT Prep Test 1 Retake after completing Quant section preparation - 660(Q49,V32). Would appreciate if I can get input on the improvement of 2 points in quant section. I know the sample size of 1 is too less but still.
Referred to the following for my prep:
1. 60 day GMAT plan using MGMAT - Did not religiously follow it due to multiple reasons but would provide my 2 cents after my GMAT :)
2. Q - MGMAT books
3. Verbal:
SC - MGMAT SC
CR - Powerscore Bible
RC - Skimmed through forums and MGMAT - Practicing questions and would finish the official guide questions by this week.
4. Practice questions - OG13 and 2nd edition books

For SC and CR while my accuracy was >90% during the first half of the section but it deteriorated in the second half(which is expected as the questions tend to get harder). My over all accuracy for both the sections was around 75%. I am not sure how to read into this. I do know, one need not get 100% questions right for a good score but would still like to know how did I fare.

Additionally my plan till the GMAT(30-Dec-2013) is:
1. Finish RC section till 16-Nov-2013
2. From Mid Nov till test date:
Take Full Length tests (MGMAT tests and few free tests from reputed institutes) and anlyze them
Revision - Quant,SC,CR
Prepare - AWA, IR

Would be great if I can get inputs on this plan for the next 1.5 months till my GMAT.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Cheers..

Hi,

I have couple of weeks to go to my GMAT date. Following is my progress (or the lack of it) in the past 3 weeks.

GMAT Prep 1 before starting the prep - 650(Q47/V32) - without IR/AWA

In the past 3 weeks:
MGMAT 1 - 650 (Q43,V36) - Without IT/AWA
MGMAT 2 - 670 (Q46,V35) - With IR
MGMAT 3 - 660 (Q44,V36) - With IR
MGMAT 4 - 680 (Q47,V36) - With IR

GMAT Prep 2 - 700 (Q48,V38) - With IR/AWA. Took it yesterday with 2-3 repeats for some reason from GMAT prep 1( may be re-installation switched Tests 1 and 2 databank?)

I am targetting a score of 700+ and would like to know what I can do better in the final 2 weeks of prep. I have planned to stick to OG/GMATPrep/official guides questions for the last two weeks. Not sure if that is the right approach so would appreciate inputs.
Moreover, was planning to focus more on verbal than quant may be in the ratio of 60-40.

Also, one query regarding the test booklet for rough work. I tend to use up a lot of space while doing rough calculations in quant section and the font size of the handwriting is really big :P . I do tend to use up more sheets than 5/6. Can we get multiple booklets for one section at the start of the section as I do not want to get a new booklet in between quant section? Also, is the booklet limited to 5/6 sheets for rough work?

In anticipation of inputs.

Cheers..
