You may have gone a little overboard with all the materials you purchases. I recommend taking an official GMATprep test, see what score you get, and identify your problem areas from there. If you have an area that is especially lacking you should spend more time on that. For instance I sucked it up on Sentence Completion so I haven spent over a week just on grammar rules (while doing the occasional math problems to keep my sanity).

OMG !! You have decided to open an GMAT Store it seems. You must be kidding that you bought so many books. It will take you a whole year to completed everything.

I am also planing to take GMAT near first week of July. But studying only 3-4 hours max a day.
8/10 hours ??? how you get so much time off your job ?

yeah...the material is more more than enuff..but i got most of them as pdfs from a friend who took the exam recently..so as obvious having got used to work on system , iam feeling it easy to go through the pdfs. :-), Except for the OG 12 which i did purchase.

perfectly said..Iam yet to take a test, will take it asap ,so as to know where to head based on my weak areas..

lastly Iam on leave for a month and half, expecting to maintain the momentum..eat,drink and breathe gmat for the coming 5 weeks.. :-)

Hi svagmat,

great to hear from you about your preparations. I am also in the process of taking the Test. Had started researching about an year back, but have got hooked up to GMAT over the last couple of weeks.

I believe going through the GMAT Club's FAQs is a great way to start off. GMATprep gives you a great feel of the CAT (It's my first time to take a computer-based test) and you can identify your weak areas.

I think it will be great to be in touch and share our experiences.

In my case, I took the Verbal review yesterday and realized that CR is weakest, RC is okay and SC is my strength. I will be taking Math now, and will share the details with all.

Till then, enjoy the weekend!

Pra

Thanks svagmat.

Well the Quant section was not too encouraging. I got 10/15 in both Math as well as Data Sufficiency. I realized there are a lot of silly mistakes that I make, just because I am too conscious about the time. Plan to take the diagnostic test tomorrow, so hopefully there are not too many surprises. I am expecting something around 650 at least.

I think it is good to review the questions in GMATprep and then move ahead. They have got good explanation.
If you have done your studies from India, I believe working on probability, permutation and combination should be good enough.

Anyways, happy studying and good luck.
