I started my GMAT prep exactly one month back with a 620 (Q39, V35) on my first GMATPrep. I gave myself 3 months to prepare. For the first month I decided to take up an online prep course to get my basics straight. I decided to go with knewton
(the reviews and the guarantee played their part in the decision). I have just finished my knewton course
in the one month that I gave myself to do so. My scores with knewton
are as follows:Knewton
Diag: 600 (q35; v40); Incorrect: q:13; v: 11(4SC; 5CR; 2RC) (ONE MONTH BACK)Knewton
CAT1: 650 (q47; v31); Incorrect: q:8; v: 17 (6SC; 6CR; 5RC) - Got over confident with V and paid the price.Knewton
CAT2: 690 (q45; v40); Incorrect: q:8; v: 6 (4SC; 1CR; 1RC) - Think should have scored more in verbal with just 6 incorrect.Knewton
CAT3: 660 (q46; v35); Incorrect: q:9; v: 7 (4SC; 1CR; 2RC) - Again 35 with 7 incorrect in V!!Knewton
CAT4: 660 (q44; v37); Incorrect: q:8; v:11 (5SC; 3CR; 3RC) - Did not time properly in Verbal, had to rush through the second half of the section.
I am left with 1 knewton
CAT, which I am saving for later. I also see that I have stagnated on my Quant performance and get around 45 with 8 incorrect(have always been a little weak in quant). In verbal I do think I have made some progress and reduced the number of errors (from around 12 to 7, apart from the last test where I was really pressed for time)but my scores haven't really shown much improvement.
I am done with knewton
and have 2 months in front of me right now. How do I go from here. I understand that SC is a clear thing to focus on and I have ordered the MGMAT SC
. I have not touched the OG and would also start with that. I understand that SC can be studied but what about CR and RC, are these all about practice, how exactly should I approach these. I want to make my CR and RC flawless for the GMAT, as my SC is the real concern.
I was hoping if experts could tell me how to get my quant score moving and also improve verbal further. I want to get the maximum out of me in the next two months. I want to target something around 730+.
So, what will be the best way forward from here to help me achieve my target. Thanks for your comments.
