Hello All,

I have been reading this forum non-stop for the past few weeks and I cannot thank you all enough for the information you share to help others. It is truly selfless. With that said, I am 12 weeks away from taking the GMAT and feel a lot of anxiety and stress from the sheer amount of information and resources on this website. I just can't figure out the best way to organize and use all this information effectively.

1. I have exactly 12 weeks until the exam. I took a Manhattan GMAT practice test as my first diagnostic and scored a 570. To be honest, I made some really dumb mistakes on the verbal so I know I can get this up. The math I've just forgot and need to really hone in on as this is my weakness. My target score is a 750. This probably seems far fetched but I know I have the dedication and desire to get here.

2. I am trying to design a study plan but am just overwhelmed with the amount of information/resources that are available.

I'm planning on starting with math as I will need to dedicate the most time here. My plan is 5 weeks on math. I'll go through all the MGMAT math strategy and foundations of math books to re learn all the concepts. Then I'm planning on doing the OG Math book for practice problems and supplementing with GMAT Quantum or Target Test Prep. Both seem really good for tailored studying where I can focus on concepts I don't get and have a ton of practice problems. And numerous people in the forums swear by them. I'll add in practice problems from GMAT Club as well. But there are so many questions everywhere. Is there a specific thread I can find questions to focus on?

Does this sound like a good approach to math? And is this the period I should dedicate to learning flash cards etc as well?

3. Should I be taking a practice test every week? So planning on getting through 12 practice tests? Or should I do all the math and take a practice test after week 5 and save some tests for the last month?

4. For verbal I plan on spending 3-4 weeks. This will consist of MGMAT books, Powerscore CR, and egmat verbal if I really need it. Otherwise OG verbal book and OG book for practice problems.

5. Last 3 weeks I am planning on just reviewing all the questions I missed in practice tests, practice problems from OG, and the Manhattan practice problems. In addition I plan on taking a practice test every week and maybe two the last week.

6. Error Log - this may sound like a dumb question but are people literally error logging every question from the strategy books, OG practice problems, and practice tests? And then reviewing at the end or reviewing every week? Or should I do a day of strategy/practice problems and then review error log next day? So 3 days of learning strategy and doing problems followed by 3 days of reviewing errors.

I know this is less me asking questions and more just downloading on all of you. If you have any thoughts or suggestions on my approach I would tremendously appreciate it. I am literally dedicating the next 12 weeks of my life to my job, exercising, and studying for the GMAT. It's a make or break moment in my life and I am fully confident I can do this.
