for all the gmat doers here....

what do you think is the good way to study and build strength on each of the gmat sections and combine them together later?

do you think in any day we practice we should touch on all 5 sections so that we wont forget them or should we focus on each section each day until we're doing quite well before combining them.

how many questions are enough per section per study?

while there is a lot of advice available here on this forum, i will just touch on a few points

Practise is not effective if we cannot eliminate errors as we practise. We recently started offering error logs to our members. you can write your errors as you practise. everytime you start your prep , first go over the problems in your error log and keep updating the eror log. this will make sure that you are not repeating errors.

An error log will also make sure that you dont forget the problems that your had trouble earlier. this way , you can build a good database of problems that you can refer everyday. this log will be especially useful in your final week.

You can practise as many or as less as you want, but what i must say is that Time yourself regularly. once you think you have learnt enough about SC/PS etc, select a set of problems and practice them with a clock. you might find that the number of mistakes are more, just because of time pressure. this will again help you develop a good strategy.

you should make an effort to practice PS/DS/SC everyday.... Try to practice RC/CR's at regular intervals ( say every third day).

Hope this helps

thanks Praet.

may I have a look at this error log? I'm not sure that I can access it as I read that you must post >100 msgs before you can use it.

(although I know that you did grant some exemptions to some of our members).

yes, i will set one for you. Our only request is that please committ to post atleast 100 messages.

The error log is just like your own personal forum Aonie. Nothing special. Nobody else can access your log. So you can write it in like you write in your notebook. hope it helps.

your log will be up in 5 minutes. just scroll to the end of the forum. you will see Error Logs for active members.
