I am new on this forum and seeking advice on what should be the right study plan when you only have 1 month left for GMAT.
Here's my brief background on GMAT progress; Kaplan
Cat 1: 410 (3 months back, given as a diagnostic test)kaplan
Cat 2: 500 (2 months back)Kaplan
Cat 3: 510 (~2 months back)
GMAC (gmat.com) Test-1: 540 (1 month back)Kaplan
Cat 4: 510 (2 weeks back)
MGMAT cat 1: 510 (today)
I have finished the following books;
1. Kaplan premier
2. Princeton review
3. OG-12 (completed almost all questions, quant + verbal)
4. GMAT Pill
5. Currently doing MGMAT (word problem and number properties)
I am extremely disappointed with my performance. Since last 2 months, my score has remained pretty much the same. I don't know whats wrong but its still in early 500s.
I noticed that few questions especially in quant I know how to solve them (I have done them in past) but can't do them on the test. Is that normal to get such consistent poor perfomance even if you are learning new things and questions types?
I only have 1 month left for the exam and not sure what I can do to break that barrier (early 500s). Whats the best strategy in the last month. Should I do new questions (if yes, which book) or just review the ones I have done.
I think my biggest weakness is the speed especially in DS and in RC. I always end up guessing last 8 to 10 questions. For Verbal I was thinking since I anyways get RC wrong I should not spend time in RC and in fact just guess RC and use that time for SC & CR so that at least I get those correct. Is that a good strategy?
I would appreciate if someone can throw some light on my consistent poor performance on these test so that I can work on that.
