I took my gmat on 31st Jan and screwed up quant.. got 43. . i had got 47 in my gmat prep tests. .
got 34 in verbal. . 640 altogether
I am gonna retake in 1 or 2 months from now.

I am gonna watch ron purewal's videos ( 1 video per day ) and buy gmatprep question pack 1.. after this i will buy aristotle ds booster and ps booster
I have already spent more than 50k INR

For RC, I am gonna read the economist.. and solve LSAT questions
For CR, LSAT again..

I have always tried to learn from every mistake in SC; did not analyse very much about the missed questions on CR and RC- I still do not know how to analyse the missed questions in RC and CR. Somebody please help me how I can improve in CR and RC. How to analyse the missed questions and how to learn from them?

For PS and DS, I am gonna dig deeeeeeeep and analyse every question that I may miss.

I will also maintain an error log; I did not maintain one the last time as this was being done by OG Archer Lite till now.
I will get back to the missed questions after a week's time.

Hey,
I'll respond to your pm and this message together..

First thing first.. Why 1 or 2 months? What's the hurry? Which college are u targeting? Frankly speaking in my opinion, you should first takeaway 15 days break from GMAT and the pull yourself up for 2-3 months gmat preparation. You mentioned that u already spent 50 k on it.. Use next $250 wisely and don't rush. Ur verbal plan is clear to me... What about quants. As you are from India, I guess improving ur quant score would be lot easier for u. Even with same verbal score u could cross 700 if u get 50+ in quants. Take that into account. On ur verbal plan, I don't understand the fascination with LSAT material.. They are clearly different exams. Unless u r very thorough with ur GMAT material I'd not recommend going for LSAT material. If u really want to spend money, instead of LSAT material consider practice tests, or a prep course. Get ur basics covered, once u r comfortable with GMAT questions, and want additional practice and have lots of money go for LSAT material as well. That's my 2 cents.. Or may be more _________________ Lets Kudos!!! Black Friday Debrief Director Status: Gonna rock this time!!!

Thanks Vipps for responding. .I got a deadline coming up for TAS application (tas inhouse recruitment) and I can take teh GMAT one more time If I have to apply to TAS this year and I have roughly 50 days from now

As far as LSAT is concerned, I guess this is something that can help me to become better in Verbal. I need a 40+ in Verbal. Not sure, how much I can improve in quant from 47.

Also, I do not know how to analyse and learn from RC and CR questions.

I am in huge confusion over which material to purchase: Aristotle PS and DS booster /Question Pack 1/ GMAT Club Tests.
