2nd GMATPrep Attempt - 23 (4 Now) Days Until Real Deal [#permalink]

So I got a 730 on my 2nd Gmatprep attempt (46Q,44V) (12 wrong math, 6 wrong verbal ) and I got a 730 on my first Gmatprep attempt a month ago (48M, 42V) (13 wrong math, 9 wrong verbal).

Real test in a little over 3 weeks.

I attribute my increase in verbal mostly because of walkers SC application. I've done like 200 questions from that since he released it and I am definitely picking up on more patterns. The word SC 1000 format is horrible to study from.

I have each day layed out on what I need to cover.

I have 10 challenges left, so do them. Do about 600 more SC questions from SC 1000. 200 RC and 200 CR from LSAT. 4 more gmatprep tests after reinstalls. Review error log, go over concepts and master them. Example, work problems, I can do basic ones, average ones, once it gets really hard (challenge level) with variables etc I get rattled so I need to nail the concepts down. Also abs value inequalities , I can answer med level, once it gets hard, I crack.

Go over and review all challenges, right & wrong.

So that is my gameplan over the next 3 weeks. My goal, to solidify my 730 so I leave no doubts and shoot for 750+

(It is amazing how my priorities changed, 3 months ago I would have been thrilled with a 700 now I keep wanting more, greedy me)

I posted the link above for Walkers App, it is just the SC 1000 but a great easy to use format.

This is a link to CR LSAT

Great score. I'm sure you will do better in GMAT. Don't get me wrong but your plan for next 20+ days is exhausting. I don't know your abilities and circumstances but I will not be able to pull it off. My advice is do not push this regimen till the end. Try to relax a day or two before the actual test.

Want to get 760+?

Do 1 GMATprep everyday. Reset the software each time.

Do 100-200 questions a day.

760 guaranteed.

Startup Addict, I like your advice lol I may consider doing that. One challenge, and one gmatprep test a day. That sounds exciting lol

Travel09,

I have a full-time job , get home around 630ish, usually go to bed late 1ish so I can easily fit 4-5 hours a night. I figure, it's the last 3 weeks, I do not want to have to take the test again, and I want to be sure going in that I gave it my best effort.

I do, but I wake up around 8-815 so I still get a good amount of sleep, even though I probably could use more.

I like that idea about taking the GMAT Prep over and over again. When you say reset, do you mean reinstall, or just take the tests with repeating questions over and over again?

So we are down to 4 days to go !

Definitely did not stick to that schedule, seemed a bit overwhelming, however I have done about 6 more gmat preps. Even after my 8th attempt, I saw only a handful of Q questions that I remembered. V on the other hand mostly were repeats. That is how I hit 49V on one of the attempts! However it was still nice to see. I do rec taking gmatprep as many times as you can. You may get a false sense of security but you will see a lot of math Q

Real verbal I will be happy with 42-44, but wouldnt be surprised to see 38-41.
Math I expect 47-49.

Overall based on my practice and what I know, I will be aiming for that 760, but I do not think I am fundmentally sound in Q, and afraid of some hard SC to keep me from that score. Realistically I will probably score 710-730, but understand some situations where people score below 700 on test day after higher practice scores!

I still have not pinpointed a retake score. Sub 700, most likely. 700-730 I'd have to do some figuring out 730-740+ Id stick with the score

Remaining few days I plan to go over quant concepts and review some formulas ( Volumes of figures such as cones, spheres) , some geometry rules, keep pounding away at SC 1000, do LSAT RC and CRs to keep myself fresh in those...I'd love to go flawless in those, maybe do another gmatprep or 2, 1 or 2 more challenges, relax, maybe have a few drinks, and go for gmat round 1 (hopefully last round)
