I tried doing so but there was a shipping time involve (to my place/country) and at this crucial time i cant afford to miss a single minute.

So, i bought the online tests, i suppose the TIME i saved on shipping worth more than $12 :-D

Amit,

If you are in India, Manhattan books are widely available there. Actually, I asked a friend in India to get mine from India and send them to me in Australia. They have re-prints which cost $2-3 a book but you don't get the free tests then so I bought one origional to get access to tests.

Remember, books are more important than just test access.

Thanks


Dude! That's a news to me. :?:

Currently, i am in India and tried getting MGMAT books from best book stores across country but couldnt find any! :roll:

that sounds like too many CATs in 34 days. You need time to digest the CATs too, so unless you're not working at all, each CAT takes 2.5 hours to take (without the AWA) and about another hour or two to understand. You listed *26* CATS in what is now 30 or so days left. That hardly gives you time to read up on material and work on problems on the side.

I would highly recommend you NOT take the Princeton Review CATs, as they will HURT you more then help. Their prep materials may be good, but their CATs aren't in my humble opinion. Same goes for Kaplan CATs, but since I haven't taken one of those thanks to the warnings from GMATClub, I cannot be as sure as I am of PR CATs. I know nothing about Crack the GMAT CATs.

I would mix up the CATs and not do all of the same ones. Mix up MGMAT and Crack the GMAT CATs, take one every two days, and throw in PowerPrep 1&2 and GMATPrep 1&2 so that you finish GMATPrep2 a few days before the real test.

I can see you burning yourself out at the end of the 26 CATs, if you actually finish all of them.

Try Indian online stores - They also sell MGMAT books and delivery within 2-3 days.

With just less then 34 days.Doing tons of CATs will not necessarily up your score.I think the best course of action is to get the best and most comprehensive material available and go through them several times.e.g.Official guide,cracking the gmat,manhattan series.CATs help you build your stamina,confidence, timing and assessing your current ability.They are not so effective in improving your test abilities.



Just my thoughts.

I also found them at Landmark, and Gangaram's in Bangalore. Both stores carried the entire series, I think each book was around 2000/-.

Hi Guys!

Sorry took sometime off from the board.........i cancelled the score, retaking the test in 5 weeks.

I suppose it was quant where i messed up, it was 9th problem on Quant, which made me decide that i should cancel the score.

Have planned to give around 4-5hrs to prep on weekdays & 10-12hrs on weekends. I hope i won't let down u folks this time! Keep you guys updated with the prep progress!!!

Regards
