Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I have been practising off and on for the last 2-3 mnths and my score is round about 620.NOT GOOD.Aiming for as close to 700 as i cn get!Since i have been told that an increase of 100 pts cannot be done in a mnth I have made up my mind to set my deadline in the 1st week of AUGUST.I just have to get a good score as I want to get it done in 1 shot.The materials which I have used till now are: Manhattan SC Manhattan FDP's Manhattan Word translations. OG11 OG verbal review OG quant review Kaplan premier program.
I think you have got enought material to cover all GMAT aspects. All you need is just practicing. If you aim 700+ do not forget to ace basics in math and verbal first. Then try to practice as much as you can. Good luck, man!!!
gmat guru's?can nebody tell me in detail wat the plan should be?Two probs which i can forecast: 1.I've already gone through the material I ve mentioned.What should be my approach the second time around? 2.Since I have time in hand I want a proper plan otherwise the entusiasm wont be there.I am afraid I'll loose focus.
I too had the Kaplan Premier program and while it is pretty good for verbal practise, it is not the best for quant imo. I would definately buy the challenges on here - they are the best. I was low in quant and they have really helped me so far.
individual break-up: Q44 V30.Total:610.Obviously quant is stronger.This is cos my prev scores was 580(Q41 V29) and i dove into math headfirst letting verbal be all alone.Results could be seen:)
weak areas: CR:strong area.Done with Og11,verbal review,Kaplan premier. RC:WEAK:( Had done randomly from the above mentioned books but clearly its not working so digging into OG11 again. SC:Had done manhattan SC TWICE,Verbal review and OG11.(all in Nov.then i ended up leaving it.Took Gmat up again in feb end)Initially had Vastly improved but now i feel I dont even know the basics.Back to starting pt.So doing Manhattan again n' tackling OG11 topic wise. I am afraid in 3 mnths(thats a long time)i'll loose focus mid way.In the first post I have told which of the materials I have already done.Suggestions on how to approach the 2nd time around?
good luck in your trip, it's not an wasy one but try to do your best
my two cents: spend all the time you are not studying reading in english. There are many resources on the internet (businessweek, cnn, ft, etc.) and on paper as well (the economist should be a must)
Doing this, you'll improve your reading comprehension and will spend less time trying to understand a text
Again, good luck!! _________________
