Stratergy 10 days to go [#permalink] New post 28 Apr 2010, 10:23
I have 10 days before my GMAT. I have taken 4 Kaplan and 4 Manhattan tests. One GMATprep test. On the Kaplan I got on average 670 and on the Manhattan's I got on average 630. The GMATprep 650. I'm aiming for 700...and only have 10 more days. Sometimes I do better in quants and other times I do better in verbal. Not very consistent in what areas I get correct/wrong in both verbal (CR, RC and SC) and quants.

I am debating between focusing on the OG 11th edition and 12th edition and doing the problems again in verbal and quants or taking more online Kaplan/Manhattan tests.

Any suggestions/ stategies to improve my score.

i would suggest taking more Online tests.. Specially Manhattan CAT tests (tougher than actual) and GMATPrep (same as actual exam). But DO NOT OVERDO. Take 1 test every 2-3 days and STOP 2 days prior to the exam.

Make sure you analyze each and every question you solve (correct or incorrect) and do a Root Cause Analysis for all the ones you missed.

And when you are not sitting with your laptop, take the OG (11 or 12 ed) and try your hands on some tough questions (i am sure you might have marked the ones you missed during your prep) and read the explanation.

Make sure to give your brain sufficient rest 2 days before the exam.

Definitely take 2-3 more tests between now and test day, but not any more than that, and make sure you take the day or two between the big day off.

At this point in your studies, everything you do should be timed. Don't try to really learn any brand new content, because you probably won't have time to fully absorb that material; rather, focus on mastering material you've already learned well.

Finally, keep your eye on Test Day, but don't let it get to you. The GMAT is a tough test, but you can be one of the thousands of GMAT success stories out there.
