reviewing quant while studying verbal? [#permalink] New post 08 Apr 2013, 11:40
Would appreciate experience or advice from experts and anyone who had the same predicament - reviewing what you studied before.

I started with MGMAT quant guides, moved on to MGMAT SC, now just started POWERSCORE CR. about 75% of the way through main prep, but is it smart to review quant books while the main focus is CR? or should i finish all the books/foundation first and then review/brush up on the entire thing? to add some context, I have about 2 hours in the mornings and one hour after work to dedicate. also have 3 day weekend that can be completely dedicated to extra work/mocks etc. so far i've done 3 mocks, i have been posting quant ~47 and verbal ~42

THANKS!

P.S. i should add that i'm planning on doing 1 chapter of powerscore a day on average, should get done in a couple of weeks from now with all of verbal.

Hi mavelous,

Practice test scores of Q47 and V42 are impressive, which tests you took. This means you have sound concepts and need to focus more on practicing questions and finding gaps in your concepts if any through practice. Ideally, you should take out some time reviewing the stuff that you have recently done; GMAT is about application of the skills/ knowledge, so a regular practice is important. One chapter per day of PowerScore is fine, but do incorporate practicing GMAT type questions along with it. All the best !!

Hope this helps,

Vercules

I did GMATPREP 1 and 2, then Veritas CAT past weekend. You're right, a lot of the time i believe that i can solve the quant problems especially, but just not the quickest/accurate balance. getting pacing a bit wrong and then end up making myself nervous halfway through - because i'm behind by that time and then trying to catch up, but in the end up shooting myself in the foot for the rest of section. i was just wondering whether that was due to forgetting concepts, or just being a bit rusty in doing it quickest way.

i'll follow your advice and try to dig up any leftovers+incorrects in 3 OG books i have. 3 days to finish 1 quant, reasonable no? that way could spread the entire quant to 3-ish weeks.
