I've finally charted out my study plan. I'm a bit OCD about some of this stuff, so I have an elaborate plan with backstops in place should my schedule go out-of-hand. I've divided my study time into four blocks.

1. Strategy
2. Familiarity
3. Practice
4. Testing

Attachment:
Strategy.jpg

Strategy - This would be the initial portion of the process. I plan to go through the concepts, compile the best tactics to tackle each type of problem - PS, DS, CR, RC and SC. Then put these strategies together and make a document that'd be comprehensive and something that I can just print out and use as I please.

Familiarity - I wish to work on problems and questions from MGMAT and Veritas during this period to gain familiarity about the type of questions. This would be untimed and I plan to use an error log starting from this period onwards. This is basically to master the application of the strategy I've learned to actual questions.

Practice - This would be timed and I'll continue using an error log. I plan to use the OG 12 and OG Quant Review/OG Verbal Review for this block. From the errors identified in the previous block, I plan to work on weaknesses more.

Testing - This would be the final portion, taking practice tests. I plan to use GMAT Prep I at the beginning of this process to just gauge how much improvement I've had. Then I plan to take the MGMAT tests, the 800score tests and perhaps the Knewton free one. Then finally it'd be GMAT Prep II in order to get a final assessment. If I get a 750 or more on my GMAT Prep I'll stop preparation and go take the GMAT. If not, I'll go back to block two and three and rework my way through weaknesses.

I plan to allocate 3 months for this. Half a month for strategy and one month for the middle blocks and half a month for test-taking. Goal would be to take the GMAT end of December.

(I know this is a bit freaky, but if I don't plan things compulsively, I just cannot get down to work) :D (Engineering teaches you as much) :D Comments welcome!

At 19, I had no clue what a framework was, much less GMAT! You are something else!
