Projection Question [#permalink] New post 07 Jan 2007, 10:49
I've studied Math for the past 2.5 weeks (my only 2.5 weeks studying - princeton review book, pr math workout, kaplan mathbook). i just took my first GMATPrep practice test. I got a 660 (44/32 - ran out of time and got the last 6 questions wrong in verbal).

I have the OG 10, 11, Math and Verbal books, and 6 old paper tests that I plan to study next, I've also purchased the manhattan online quiz banks and practice tests.

Realistically, how much can I expect my score to improve?

This is a really tough question to answer.
There is no limit to improvement.
A lot of points can be gained by learning concepts in maths and SC that you just didn't know.
Moreover how you handle the pacing on the test also matters. You may know everything, but if you don't manage time on the test properly you may not score well. For example, when I gave my first test, I spent like 7-8 minutes on one single question, and so I obviously lost a lot of points on the later questions.
I think by working hard, going through the relevant books, being regular in your studies, using this forum properly and being smart on your test pacing, you can do wonders to your score.

The only limits are those that we put on ourselves!!

Also , should I spend time on OG 10 or just 11 and the math/verbal workbooks?

I'd say OG 11 is enough. Beside that, you should analyze your GMATprep answers attentivly and pinpoint your areas of weakness. Once you have that data, you can develop an effective preparation scheme. Maybe you just have to agonize over some specific problem type.

And of course work on your time management - there is plenty of tips here on the forums. Being confident about your pace is far more crucial than any problem solving concept.
