New post 30 Sep 2017, 16:58
I am a senior in college applying for Master of Finance for fall 2018, I need to take the exam before January 2018.
I took it late August and got 500, it is very bad, I know. Every section is my week spot. For preparation, I went through OG 2017 but from the result, it is not enough.
I read a lot of prep book recommendations, some says Manhattan Prep series is good, but I found out they have 10 GMAT Strategy Guides plus several supplements. (Foundations of Math & Verbal Supplements,GMAT Advanced Quant etc.) Also, I know that The PowerScore GMAT Critical Reasoning Bible is very good.

Now, the only physical materials I have are OG 2016 and Manhattan Sentence Correction; I have registered for a Magoosh account.
I am still finishing up my last year of undergraduate study as a full time student at school, I can do at most 1 hour per night during weekdays and 8 hours per day during weekends (approximately 20 hours per week).
What else (books, online prep program etc.) would I need to make a substantial improvement to my scores??? Thanks in advance.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

My current possession:
OG 2016 and Manhattan Sentence Correction;a Magoosh account.

I am wondering whether I should obtain:
10 GMAT Strategy Guides, Manhattan supplements: Foundations of Math & Verbal Supplements,GMAT Advanced Quant etc.) OR The PowerScore GMAT Critical Reasoning Bible

Targeting 700+ and most recent score is 500 (taken in lat August)

Hi panyu2,

3 months should be good enough to achieve your dream score. If you are willing to study dedicatedly for 3 months, you are sure to achieve your goal. I believe you may benefit from taking a GMATPREP course. Although, Magoosh is great, there are some great GMAT prep companies that can help you with your preparation.

In order to make an informed decision I would highly encourage you to go to their websites and try on their free trial and decide for yourself which one do you like better. You try out free access to EmpowerGMAT, Target Test Prep and Optimus Prep as they have great reviews on GMATCLUB.

Also for verbal, Your decision to go with e-gmat verbal live course is great. It is an amazing courses especially designed for non-natives. They offer almost 25% of their courses for free so you can try out their free trial to decide which one you want to go for. Plus the e-gmat Scholaranium which is included in both the courses is one of the best verbal practice tools in the market.

For CR, Powerscore CR Bible is amazing. Further taking multiple mocks might help. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have a good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

Further another advantage of taking many mocks is to build up your stamina and help you with your anxiety issues. Apart from the GMATPREP tests, taking practise tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

I would also encourage you to purchase the latest version of OG, the verbal review and GMATPREP QP1 for some great additional practice. Here is a link that will help you with your decision.

https://gmatclub.com/forum/best-gmat-ve ... 68383.html

Lastly, you can check out a very interesting article by Mike McGarry from Magoosh detailing a 3 month study plan

https://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/3-month-g ... -students/. You will find it very helpful as it gives out a study plan as per your needs.

Hope this helps. All the best.
