hey all,
i'm just starting my GMAT study journey and would like some clarification/help.

I read in a couple of threads that you should "study" the problems in the OG.

-Does that mean studying the concepts and understanding what you got WRONG as well as what you got RIGHT?

-Also, when you first start out using the OG, HOW SOON SHOULD YOU START TIMING YOURSELF?
Is it right away?
or after you have mastered all the concepts (I guess that would require going through the OG more than once, right?)

Any clarification would help. Thanks.

Fast speed will come to you by itself when you become more familiar with concepts and routines. IMO. The exact time actually depends on your ability to study but usually is around 1-3 months. Don't hurry or linger.

I'd recommend you start reviewing/studying the concepts from MGMAT books prior to hitting the OG material to ensure a solid foundation. But, if you are comfotable with the math/verbal topics that are tested, dive into OG right away.

Good luck prepping.

Thanks for the replies!
I really appreciate it.

I don't think I am comfortable with the topics tested. So, I will follow your advice and do the MGMAT books first.

I have another question: I already purchased the OG Quant and OG Verbal. I thought the OG Review Guide maybe didn't have that many more questions, but I was wrong... so I will be getting that too.

Which is better to start with? OG Review? or OG Quant + OG Verbal?
I have 12-13 weeks to study... I wouldn't mind extending it to 16, but I would really like to take the test October 11.

Would you be willing to evaluate this (tentative) study schedule?

Week 1- Gmat for dummies (I unfortunately purchased this book before finding this website. It's wordy and kind of annoying, but I'm just using it this week)
Diagnostic Test
Week 2- MGMAT Quant
Week 3- MGMAT Quant
Week 4- Mgmat books for math + Verbal

Week 5- OG Quant
Week 6- OG Review (orange)

Practice Test

Week 7- Verbal (using notesfound on this site and esnips) + OG Verbal
Week 8- verbal (using notes found on this site and esnips) – while still doing quant problems in OG Review (Orange) + OG Verbal
Practice Test

Week 9- Study OG Orange book + GMAT Challenges + Test
Week 10-Study OG Orange book + GMAT Challenges + Test
Week 11-Study OG Orange book + GMAT Challenges + Test
Week 12-Study OG Orange book + GMAT Challenges + Test
Week 13- (3 days) Go over problem areas + Test. Relax. Take GMAT...
