Hi Guys,
i have not been around for a while and couldn't prepare for over two months now.

Need to restart again . . . and am bit uncomfortable as have forgotten strategies and fundamentals . . basically need to re invigorate and re focus. any suggestions or advises are welcome.

See below a screen shot of my performance so far on various tests!!


Materials i am done with
1) Princeton Review
2) Kaplan Comprehensive Program
3) Kaplan Verbal Workbook
4) Kaplan Math Workbook



Materials am left with (that i already have)
1) Manhattan all 8 guide books
2) OG 12
3) Offical Math Review
4) Offical Verbal Review


Test Inventory unused; 18 tests
1) 6 Manhattan GMAT CAT
2) 1 Kaplan Online CAT
3) 9 Gmat Paper Test
4) 2 Gmat Prep CAT



I am in no hurry to take test. will take some time in Q1 next year.

Yours,
GS

Don't focus on the tests - I'd say forget them for now.
Spend quality time with the Math/Verbal workbooks and make sure you save/mark all questions you have an issue with. When you are done with each book, take the Quant/Verbal portion of the tests to see your progress and score. For verbal, would recommend that you also get either MGMAT SC or PowerScore SC and MGMAT CR and MGMAT RC books. If you are short on time, get the PowerScore Verbal Bible.

Again - don't put emphasis on questions or tests - instead work on refreshing your knowledge and building math/verbal skills - you can polish test-taking skills later.

Hi bb

thanks for your response; i will thinking like wise i.e. stick to section tests and books . . and not chase full length CATs

once i am done with the work books (basically i am revising them now, as i had already completed them 2 months ago) . . . and have re worked on the error log up till now, i want to move on to Manhattan 8 guides (which i have with me). . . is there a way to go through them . . . any particular way to mix them all up ( say verbal and quant on alternate day etc) . . .how much time do these books needs . . . and as i understand these use OG's . . .does it mean that by the end of it i would have completed OG's too.. . .

Any thought on the above, as manhattan is the last set of books that i would be doing followed by / along with OG's . . so i need a good strategy / discipline to work through them

Well, I think the best way to go with MGMAT guides is just to follow whatever is written there. I mean start from book 1, chapter 1 and move according to those books. Solve the problem sets & then OG & Quant, verbal guides.

Just follow MGMAT way, u will get good results.

Best of luck!!

I agree - don't invent anything and do not deviate by a single step (not kidding here).
If MGMAT says you need to paraphrase the sentence or read it twice - that's what you do. They are professionals - you don't tweak your doctor's prescription, so why mess with GMAT?

ok ok ok!! guys. . hands off!!. . . i am not going to re-invent, re-engineer anything.

will blindly follow the guides from point A to point Z.

So here is my plan for next stage:

1) Revise Kaplan Math Workbook
. . . then do only Quant Sections from some of CATs
2) Revise Kaplan Verbal Workbook
. . . then do only Verbal Sections from some of CATs
3) Do GMAT paper tests (there are 9 of those i have) at least 3 of them to get a good grips on overall things
4) Start Manahattan Books from guide 1 to guide 8

Stage thereafter; would be mostly about OG's and CAT's . not thinking about those as of now.

What do you guys say??

GS
