This post was
BOOKMARKED
I took my first MGMAT test and scored 540. I am uttterly disappointed & frustrated.

Before taking the 1st test, my preparation was
Quant - OG
Completed OG first 200 problems (100 each) in both sections i.e. data sufficiency & problem solving. I again solved wrong answers.

Quant - Kaplan
Completed 50 additional DS questions in 2011 Kaplan premier (my friend gave this book to me). I again solved wrong answers.
Completed 2013 Kaplan premier example questions and other problems that are listed in this book.

Verbal
--> Manhattan GMAT sentence correction - completed reading concepts from this book
--> In OG
Completed first 70 questions in RC section
Completed first 50 questions in CR section
Completed first 50 question in SC section. Analyzed my mistakes etc.

So please help me score better. Attached is my analysis report. What else should I do?
Quant- I feel that I need to improve on Word Problems, Data sufficiency & Number properties.
verbal - Every thing.

What should be my approach. I just have 2 months for my exam. What other books should I refer?

Really you have not done that much in the OG, so this is really not a surprising score. Keep working on finishing the OG and then move on the the supplemental Reviews

Jim,

Thank you so much for response. can you please clarify regarding "supplemental reviews"? Does this include completing "advanced manhattan gmat quant" & "Kaplan 800" etc?

What has to be my approach going forward? Please let me know if you think below approach works
1) Complete OG & review incorrect answers
2) Complete "Manhattan GMAT advanced Quant"
3) Complete Kaplan 800

Or is "OG Verbal Review" and "OG Quant Review"?
