Hello everyone! This is my first post on the forum. I must say you all have made a phenomenal community that has helped me prepare a lot. I hope I can contribute greatly after I take my GMAT.

I started my prep about one month ago. The Msc I want to get into asks me for a minimum of 600, which is quite low and accesible. However, mainly for pride, I want to step up the game to at least reach the 700 mark.

Just before I started studying, I took a mock test (the free one of Manhattan) and scored a 610 (Q40, V34). Then, a couple weeks ago I got a 650 on the veritas one. And today I just got a 690 (46Q,39V) from Kaplan. My quant score has improved, although I think I can get it further. I have attached the results to this post.

What I have studied:

-Kaplan Premier 2016, only quant
-OG Guide Directory from Gmatclub. I am currently going through all the exercises, saving the ones I didn't get right or that it took me more than 2 minutes to do.

I haven't studied verbal theory at all. It sort of comes natural to me. SC is the one I find the hardest, although I pretty much bombed the CR problems (only 4/14). That's what really surprises me, as I usually bash through the OG CR questions in no time, getting almost everyone right. Maybe I was a little bit tired by the end of the test, who knows.

So, what can I do to get to the 700+? I have 2 weeks and a half to get there.

PS: I haven't started on IR or AWA yet, as they don't really count that much. I'll get some templates and some exercises done along the line.

Hi,

Based on your post I see that you did not GMATPrep CAT's. I would suggest you to download the gmatprep software and take a mock test. Only Gmatprep gives you realistic picture of the test score.

Then find out the weakness areas from the gmatprep mock and try improving those in next 10 days. Then take a gmatprep mock again to see what is your score improvement and where you can improve further.

Also while you practice always practice with OG questions for Verbal and for Quant you can try gmatclub tests.

Hope it helps.

GMATPrep is an absolute must. That will give you a clearer idea.

Other than OG, you have verbal review too to practice from. If you are looking for SC theory, then e-gmat would be your best bet in my opinion.

Good luck!!!
