Need some advice PLEASE! [#permalink] New post 05 Dec 2009, 09:25
Earlier this year I took the full course that Veritas Prep offers. I worked very hard, studied all the time and completed every workbook. I got through them with really no problems at all, until I took the GMAT...

530 - 35Q and 27V!!!!!!!! :cry:

Needless to say I was crushed. After all that work it seemed like it was all for not.

I think I need to just go back to square one and work on my base. WITH EVERYTHING.

Does anyone have a plan they followed? Books they used? Etc. I am really open to ANYTHING, if you tell me hanging upside down while drinking green tea with blue socks on while I do SC will improve my scores then I'll do it.

My DREAM school is Tepper. Starting part time and potentially transferring in full time. I have had my interview and application is in, I realize chances are slim but I want to crank out a 630 which is their av. for the part time program.

Thanks for reading.

It helps to keep a log of the questions you answered incorrectly so that you can find your weaknesses.

Thanks for the input. I was researching the site and have found a few Error Logs to choose from. I imagine they all do the same thing. Thanks again.

Hello RMZafris,

An error log is how YOU monitor your progress. People here have posted the tools they use, but you need to use what works for you.

Review the error log thread.

Thanks mohater! I think that ultimately I am going to spend a month on Verbal with all of the MGMAT books, then a month with Quant STILL LOOKING FOR QUANT SUGGESTIONS for books that helped. Then about 2 weeks of fusing them both. Hopefully with that coupled with the Error Log I will see some improvements.

I will post progress. Thanks for the tips guys!
