I completed my Manhatttan Online Course recently and followed the whole program. I completed the OG 11
questions and reviewed all my questions and revisited them couple of times. I have just started to work on the Verbal and Quant review books. Last week I took my first Gmat Prep and scored 700 ( Q:51, V:35)
My hit rates for both PS and DS are 95+ % and I usually solve the quant questions around 90 seconds.
My hit rates for the verbal section are as below:RC
Main Idea 81%
Tone 4 67%
Draw Conclusion 74%
Analyze Structure 100%
Explain Event 92%
Make Inference 100%
Evaluate Conclusion 100%
Resolve Problem 75%
Provide Example 50%
Restate Conclusion 100%
Mimic Argument 100%SC
3 C's 100%
Sub/Verb Agreement 95%
Odds & Ends 75%
So my major weaknesses are:
RC Inference questions and RC Idioms. I am working on my pacing and I got Quant under control but RC takes forever for me.
I am comfortable with CR after reading the CR bible and working on OG problems and my timing is around 105 seconds.
My SC skills are getting better. After completing the Manhattan SC guide and reading all of the OG explanations and taking notes + flash cards, I am more confident in this section but still my hit rate is not above 90 %. I need to study more idioms.
I also practice with old paper tests and they have pretty good questions. I am done with the quant questions in Kaplan 800
and found them useful. I will continue with the verbal part of it.
I will take Manhattan # 3, 4, 5 and 6 tests and also will take GMAT Prep two rounds.
What would you recommend ? Should I just practice GMAT Prep or practice Manhattan GMAT
as well ?
What do you guys think about GmatClub tests
? I purchased the verbal questions and havent touched them yet.
I will post a very comprehensive GMAT after my test.
