Need help with Study Plan [#permalink] New post 19 Sep 2012, 23:17
Hello everyone,

I have just passed the GMAT two days ago and got a 650 (Q45, V35). I studied the GMAT during 4 weeks approximately, but not very consistently. I completed two diagnostic test from GMAT prep (550 before starting to study and 660 before the actual test) and covered all of the questions in one book (gmat review)
I am planning to take the test again in two months (1st of december). Therefore I would like to know what strategy could I use if I'd like to improve my score and get to the 700 mark.

Oh and one last thing, my main problem during the GMAT is that I always finish before time in quant and verbal (like 20 minutes too early)

I will be applying for a Master in Marketing, most probably in Europe (Esade is one of my first choices)

Thanks for your help!

Make sure you are reviewing extensively the problems that your doing. Spot errors in the wrong answer choices that appear in the OG and make sure you never repeat the mistake.
650 by studying a month is pretty good. I am not sure why did you rush into it. Take your time and analyze the OG. Thats the best advice I was given and it works.
About the time factor that you mentioned. If you are scoring Q49+ then the spare 20 minutes should not bother you. But if you are scoring less, there might be things that you missed which leaves a room for improvement.
Same goes for verbal as well.
