3 weeks!! and those are your scores? amazing.
I think you just conviced me to throw my GMAT books and my desk out the window
those are great scores.
quick question - how did you find the MGMAT quant section compared to the other tests, in particular the GMAT Prep?
In terms of your question, I find one can go through a lot more questions and concepts if you don't take tests, but do problem sets e.g. from the OG. When I do practice tests (4 hrs including AWA) I usually have to rest for an hour and then I review my mistakes and then the day is over and I only did 37 quant questions and 41 verbal - When i don't do practice tests I've been able to cover/review up to 120 questions a day.. so I find I learn a lot more when I do questions.. but thats just me!
Thanks for the feedback, I'll take that into consideration (perhaps I'll take a short break from CATs over the weekend).
Unfortunately I found myself tight in time with deadlines etc., which left me with only about 4 weeks to study (three have gone by, one left). Wish I had another couple at least. In any case, don't throw away your books.
Regarding your question - I feel that MGMAT Quant is tougher than GMATPrep. The questions seem to be longer and/or more complicated (perhaps it's coincidental, but that's the impression I got). In both of the GMATPrep tests
, I finished both sections with some spare time and felt good about what I have done. In MGMAT I find myself having some time shortage issues with the Quantitative section (in Verbal I still manage to finish with at least 4-5 minutes left). Kaplan
was a totally different creature – very strange test and much tougher (even in Verbal, where the RCs seem to be unusually long and complicated compared to the other tests). You can argue that I did the Kaplan
tests before the MGMAT and that I may have simply progressed, but that wouldn't coincide with the fact that I got 750 on the first GMATPrep before doing the first Kaplan
