I took my gmat on 27-01-2012 and i was pretty tense..I scored only 540 and was really discouraged by seeing my score..I was first contemplating on whether to take the gmat again or not...I got a 36 on quants and 28 on verbal(verbal looks very bad).
I thought over for a day or two and then decided to take up the gmat again in 35 days time..I am aiming to get a score of about 740...I would be very grateful if someone could assist me in formulating a study plan..
also let me know the books that are to be used for preparation...
I already completed the gmat og 12th
edition,quants and verbal review...
I am not sure this plan will work very well. A 200 point jump is not ambitious but you need 2-3 months for that. Mind you, the difficulty level increases exponentially as you touch the higher ranges of the score. Let's say, if 540 to 600 needs 1 unit of effort, 600 to 650 needs 3 units and 650 to 700 needs 9 units. I hope you get the point. I am not saying it is impossible; all I am saying is that it is hard for most people. You may be an exception; I certainly hope you are.
Also, if you intend to study 8 hrs a day in the next one month, I doubt it will work as well as 4 hrs a day over 2 months. Your mind needs a break after 2 hrs and is unable to grasp very well. Also, if you study too much, burnout is a risk. GMAT study involves understanding the concepts which needs focus and concentration. It is not a retention based format.
Another thing, you should go through a complete set of study material to cover the concepts well.
