Retake strategy advice [#permalink] New post 27 Sep 2010, 12:40
Hi all!

This is my first post, and it comes after actually taking the gmat for the first time today and scoring 600 (37Q 35V). I've done a minimum amount of work for it (<8 hours in total, not a single full length test, just did a few questions from each section in the OG).

The problem is I want to improve to somewhere in the 680 region and I have 4 weeks to do that, as I have to send my application by the 2nd of Nov. I'm willing to work everyday, but I really don't know where to start, so any advice on a strategy would be highly appreciated.

Also, was wondering if the 800score prep package is any good... I'm not able to afford the 600$+ price tags on any of the online courses I've found. Any ideas in this area?

Basically any advice would be useful!

Thanks for your help and congratulation on the great community you have here!

i would first find the weakness spots. i would normally suggest mgmat books but depending on your time allotment you might not have enough time... OG12 is a must too. from the look of your breakdown it seems you need more work on quant!

Hi,

If you're looking for a good place to start, you might find some of our articles helpful.

Although you have 4 weeks, you might look at "How to Prep in 14 days if you absolutely must" for some good tips on how to structure your prep: http://www.manhattangmat.com/articles/two-week-prep.cfm

Or, try some more general study tips here: http://www.manhattangmat.com/articles/b ... y-tips.cfm

We have a lot of free and useful articles, so feel free to browse!

Best,
Caitlin Clay

Thanks Cclay for the great articles.

I really liked "How to Prepare in 14 Days (If You Absolutely MUST)" article.

Glad you liked them (although we would never recommend prepping for the GMAT in only 14 days!)

Best,
Caitlin
