Welcome Neueziel !
It's very nice that u have decided to post more than lurke
... Actually, one key of improvments is how much u participe to this forum
. U should expose your answers to the view of other testtakers in order to have remarks or to assimilate better/other ways to solve math problems for instance.
As Pelihu said, I think u have all the necessary background to go up till the 90 purcentil (49) in quant, at least
To understand more about your preparation, I would like to ask u some questions :
> Do u use an errorlog to track your mistakes? To identify your weak areas?
> How many time did u do a whole GMATPrep or a consor exam? with or without the AWA section?
> After 1min30 lasted on a single quant question, do u ask yourselves : Can I solve this question within the next 30s or not?
> Do u practice questions in sets or independently ? For how long?
Last thing...... U can do it ! :D
Hey thanks for all the encouragement!!
As for the questions you asked:
1. I base all of my studying off of the Manhattan GMAT books
. I study an entire book and do the problems. After completeting the problems I review the ones I get wrong.
2. Honestly I didn't really take any practice tests to work on my timing. I probably took a few tests from GMAT Prep the week of the exam.
3. No I really wasn't too concerned with time. Unfortunately that is the cause of th elower score I think.
4. I do the problems listed in the Manhattan GMAT
guide everytime I finish a book. So all the problems I do are focused on a particular topic. As for how long it takes for me to do the problems, I usually take as long as I need.
From answering all those questions its clear that I have no time management skills. Do you have any advice on working on that.
Once again thanks for all your help!
