What is the best way to use the OG 11 books? [#permalink] New post 04 Jul 2007, 10:56
I have recently started my GMAT prep and I have a few questions about the best way to use the OG 11 Review books. I should note that I have access to following preperation material.

1) PR Cracking the GMAT 2007
2) MGMAT Strategy Guides (all 8 books)
3) OG 11
4) OG Math
5) OG Verbal

Practice Tests
1) GMATPrep – 2
2) MGMAT – 6
3) 9 GMAT Paper Tests (need to acquire)
4) PR – 2

I have read Cracking the GMAT by PR and am currently reviewing the MGMAT strategy guides. I am planning on solving the PR problems as I review the MGMAT books.

1) Once I finish reading the MGMAT review guides, should I proceed to solving the OG 11 problems? Or Should i review the topics covered in the OG Math & OG Verbal?

2) When solving OG 11 problems, do you pick a few problems from each problem type and work as a set? Example should I pick 5 PS, 5 DS, 5 SC, 5 CR and 5 RC questions and work on them as a set? If so how does one go about picking the questions?

3) What is the best way to use the SC/RC/CR1000 questions? Should I work on them once I exhaust all the OG 11 questions or should I work on both simultaneously?

Any pointers and suggestions would be helpful

I also just received the OG 11th edition in the mail and I would like some advice on the best way to use it in conjuction with Kaplan 800, PR Math Workout and Kaplan online syllabus.

Also, I am currently in a Kaplan class and have been taking online practice exams for the past few weeks. Like many others, I believe the Kaplan tests are quite difficult compared to the actual GMAT which I took once already (680, trying to break 700 this time).

SO...Where can I obtain additional practice CATs that are more realistic than the difficult Kaplan tests? Do these tests provide the same detailed feedback as Kaplan does?
