Gigabyte,

Your strategy will depend on your proficiency level. How skilled are you already at english and math? Also, how much time are you willing to put in per week? Finally, what is your target score?

I guess my proficiency level goes with my last score in GMAT 620, Q45, V30. And i was super cool during that test.

I can give 3 or 4 hours per day on average. And my target score is 700.

FYI, i couldn't manage MGMAT guides in last time i took GMAT. This time i have started to go through those books, but they are taking a hell lot of time. Besides, i have OG12, OG11 and OG10.

So, what do you advise?

For Verbals - Go through the OGs

If you have time, for

Having finished MGMAT Guides, I can tell you that these books will BUILD YOUR FUNDAMENTALS that are very essential to do well on the GMAT. These guides take time but then again, that's the whole point! You should spend the maximum amount of time on your fundamentals. Instead of practising 500 questions, spend the same time going through the books, perhaps twice.

So finish off those books. Then practice timed chunks of questions in OG 12. Practice, say for example, 20 problems with 30 minutes on the clock. That is how you train your mind for the GMAT.

I see you have taken the GMAT, perhaps there might be some apparent holes in your skill that we might fill to get you that score you desire. So post the areas that you feel you are weak on!
