One month to go... [#permalink] New post 18 Mar 2013, 06:43
I have one month to go in my 3 months of study. This post is a status update of what I have completed and what I still need to go through before the exam. Any advice is much appreciated. Also, I've attached my error log that I have been keeping to this post. I have been studying 2-3 hours a night on the week nights, and 6-8 hours on the weekend. I've had to take 2-3 days off in studying for personal matters.

This is my 2nd attempt at the GMAT. I scored a 460 on my first attempt and had a complete meltdown. My goal is to score a 650.

Also, the last few days have been tough. I am starting to hit a wall and feel that 3 months might have been too long of a time to study for.

Completed
All MGMAT books(saved advanced sections for the last part of my study)
OG Guide 13
GMAT Pill Videos(only watched videos based on weak areas)
2 Manhattan Practice Exams
Note cards- Questions that I completed wrong/conceptual topics
A few thursdays with Ron videos

Need to Complete
OG 13 Analysis of all incorrect questions
Finish advanced MGMAT topics
GMAT Prep practice exams(2)
GMATClub practice exams(2)
Finish/Review note cards
Review MGMAT Sentence Correction Guide Again
Review Critical Reasoning Bible Again

Practice Exams
Scored a 620 and a 690 on the first two practice exams from Manhattan. However, I believe these scores should be slightly lower. I had a few questions(3-4) that came up which I've seen before, therefore I feel like my scores are inflated a little bit. My plan is to take 2 more GMATPrep exams and 2 GMATClub Exams to get a good gauge of where I am at and what I need to really buckle down on before the exam.

Do you feel like this would be enough practice exams with 1 month left? Should I take them in a specific order(i.e. gmat prep 1 , gmat club 1, gmat prep 2, gmat club 2)



Areas of Weakness

Data Sufficiency is obviously my weakest area. As I've been going through the advanced topics from the MGMAT guides over the last 2 weeks I feel that these chapters have really helped me with certain type of DS problems such as number properties.

I've attached my error log to this post. I have completed all of the OG questions and 2 practice exams and the results are in the log. The analysis of the OG questions is not completed.


Is there any other materials that you recommend I should review with one month left? I feel like the amount of materials out there is endless and you can really get caught up with them and feeling overwhelmed/pressured to study or complete those materials.

Any advice is much appreciated.

Hi there,

Great work so far! It seems as though you have worked through a lot of material but should do more analysis and timed sections. A few things:

1. Get through your error log ASAP. The error log should be a dynamic document with questions getting resolved on a continuous basis.

2. Over the next few weeks take all of the verbal from the GMAT Paper Tests. Give your self 80 minutes for all three sections.

3. Do 5 GMATClub Quant sections and 5 MGMAT Quant sections. Make sure to leave plenty of time to analyze these exams and to re-do questions that you got wrong.

Along with this sprinkle in 2-3 full GMATPrep CATs. The week before your exam do the three GMAT Focus exams. I know that this may seem like a lot of timed practice but it's crunch time right now. Still, quality over quantity so you need to figure out what works for you and your schedule. Make sure to leave time to relax and to get some rest because your memory works better when you have regular sleep.

Happy Studies,

HG.

That's great. How did the analysis go? Have you taken any practice tests since this one?

Happy Studies,
