Hey all, wanted to get your feedback on how to prepare during the final stretch.
Over the next 2-3 weeks, I want to go over every question on the OG Quantitative Review & Verbal Review (2nd Edition). This is about 600 questions which I believe I can complete in 2 weeks.

Is this a worthwhile strategy right before the test or is there another route I should take?
From reading a number of posts, I gather that the OG guides are the closest to the exam so going through every question and understanding them would be a good choice to ingrain the concepts.

Also plan on going through the Powerscore CR bible, and MGMAT SC once more.

Appreciate the feedback and opinions.

This sounds like a lot to do right before the test. At this stage, it's more about fine-tuning your preparation and focusing on specific weak points. Another crucial ingredient involves rest. It's generally recommended that you take one or two days off immediately prior to the test in order to stay mentally fresh and alert.

While that may be good training/practice - be careful about burning yourself out before the exam even begins.

Study smart - not hard. Make sure you review questions you get wrong. Don't simply plow through a list of 600 questions.

Thank you for the replies.

Definitely not trying to burn myself out, took 3 days off before the exam.
I was under the impression that the more familiar you get with questions which can possibly appear on the exam, the better you will be.
I will definitely be reviewing the fundamentals, but will try to work these in as well.

Hey, I burnt myself out doing exactly what you are planning to do, be careful right there. You wouldn't want to feel what I felt. Can't agree more with gmatpill, study smart - not hard. Anyway, all the best to you.
