Hi everyone,
I was hoping to get some advice from you all. I'm writing the exam at the end of June, currently in the middle of a Veritas prep course.
Between now and then, I have access to Gmatprep (obviously), the 800.score and Veritas Tests, MGMAT Tests, and of course the gmatclub challenges. I think i need the most work on my quant skills.
How would you guys advise proceeding?
Should I solely concentrate on GmatPrep, challanges, and MGMAT tests? Should I take the Gmatprep multiple times?

Thanks for your help guys.

I'd save the MGMAT Quant sections for last. GMATPrep should be done periodically.

Hi CB,
I guess i just need to figure out what my study/practice exam schedule will be like between now and the end of june. You would say to do the gmatprep everyweek, as well as gmatclub challeneged, and save mgmat for the end?
Basically I should ignore the 800 score and veritas stuff?

thanks guys

no that's too many GMATPreps save them toward the end of your calendar maybe 3 weeks before then 1.5 weeks before - then I'd repeat it as many times as you can handle. But your first two tries will give you an accurate representation of what you will score after that you are getting the benefit of doing good practice questions but not an accurate score.

So.

Veritas
Club Challenges
MGMAT
800score (quant only if you need extra help, don't worry about the scoring)
GMATPrep

Make sure you give yourself enough time with GMATPrep cut out the 800score test first and maybe 1-2 of the MGMATs if you are getting close to test day. GMATPrep is your friend, use it wisely then often.

This depends on how you are scoring. If you feel that the reason your score is "where it is" because you are missing problems and you need to review material then 1 a week should be fine, this will give you time to learn some stuff in between test. If you are not getting to the finish line in time or you feel rushed I'd do 2 a week if you can because pacing is very important and being able to sit down and take the test on gameday without worrying about how much time you spend on each question will definitely net you some points.

I suggest if you go to more than 1 test a week that you tapper off as you approach the test day back down to 1 a week or do some half test if you need work in only verbal or math. Make sure you don't burn yourself out, you want test day to feel like a walk in the park but passing out during the test won't help you much.
