Hi,

I'm a first time GMATter and need a game plan for reaching 700-ish in 3 1/2 weeks' time.

Score reached using GmatPrep was:
520 (Q33, V28) so I really need to improve a lot!

I'm currently using Kaplan GMAT Premier 2012 and just working my way through chapters.

I'm weakest on CR, not so bad on SC and RC - but clearly I need to up my game.
As for Quants - I answered the questions way too fast and could have reached higher score if I had not rushed (7 minutes remaining on the clock). I can afford to brush up on content too.

Also - what is a good strategy for AWA? Are there any free software tools which can evaluate a written essay online?

I'm working full time too - but willing to work around & put in some hard hours!

Maybe lower my expectations and go for a 600-650 score?

Any help / advice most appreciated.

Thanks.

It's going to be very challenging to get to 700+ in just 3 weeks from a 520, but your goal should just be to get as high as you can in the time you have left. Sooo, that being said, it is hard to give advice without knowing your detailed current studies. But see my post here: all-january-test-takers-124826.html This has a collection of some great last month study plans.

Also, you will have to 100% dedicate yourself for the next few weeks if you want to make significant improvements. 700+ scores are not just given away, and the average study time for a 700+ score is over 100 hours.

I would like to recommend that you look at this post: how-to-get-6-0-awa-my-guide-64327.html to figure out a strategy for AWA. This is the best plan ever compiled on how to score well on the AWA.

If you have any further questions, feel free to come by! Good luck on test day!
