Hello all,
I took a gmat diagnostic test and scored a 360. I was always little bad at solving math problems. I want to get 650 plus in my gmat test and I have time till February 2018 to give the exam. Please suggest me the study plan and math books so I can get stronger at basics.
Thankyou!

Hi Navyamonav

First, I'm not an expert here. So I just share information I know. You can boost your score by 2 months. To do the foundation of quant, you can study from MGMAT. OG is also good too. I have read that others boost their Quant by using gmat club test. You may want to check it. That's all I know. But, mind if you share the result of diagnostic test? Quant score and verbal score? The expert here can give you a detailed suggestion if they know your score in details.

Hi Navyamonav,

Raising this score 290+ points in just 3 months will be a difficult task - but it is doable. You'll have to make significant improvements to how you handle BOTH the Quant and Verbal sections - and all of that training will require consistent study with an emphasis on Tactics. All of that having been said, you might have to decide what's MORE important: hitting 650+ (at some point) or applying to School in 3 months with whatever Score you have.

Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

1) What were the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for this CAT?
2) What is the exact application deadline for each of the Schools that you plan to apply to?
3) Why do you think you need a 650+?

Singapore Management University
University of Manchester
Warwick university
University of buffalo
University of northern Illinois
University of British Columbia

As far as my score in diagnostic test is concerned,
I got a 12 in verbal and 27 in quant

Hi Navyamonav,

In your last post, you didn't actually answer my question. If you MUST have a 650+ to apply to the Schools that you're interested in, then the deadlines really don't matter (since you wouldn't be able to apply UNTIL you got that type of Score). However, if applying to School in February is more important, then you'll apply to any School that reasonably 'fits' what you're looking for and would potentially accept you based on your GMAT Score (whatever that Score ends up being).

I ask this question because it's quite likely that you will need MORE time (than you currently have) to hit 650+, so I wouldn't want to advise you on a Course of action until you clearly defined what your primary goal was: to hit 650+ OR to apply in February (regardless of your Score).

Take full lenght CATs, know your estimated score. Analyze the result with Correct/incorrect questions, pacing analysis trace your mistakes and learn from them, make an error log to know your mistakes in the previously attempted questions

Though the recommendations to follow the Manhattan Strategy guides
to build your concepts are awesome, if you are not a book kind of person,
you could follow these steps to improve your scores

These are some links that are very beneficial, as far as Quant is concerned.
GMAT Club Maths Book : https://gmatclub.com/forum/gmat-math-book-87417.html
Quantitative Megathread : https://gmatclub.com/forum/ultimate-gma ... 44512.html
You might also want to check the GMATClub Tests(which can help you improve your score)

Additionally, you could follow Bunuel to improve your scores.
His signature contains some awesome questions that give you the true taste
of GMAT (Baker's Dozen, 12 Easy Pieces etc.. ). Even otherwise, solve each and
every question he puts up on the forum. They should definitely give you all the
practice that you need for Quant.

Hope that helps you!

Hi Navyamonav,

3 months should be good enough to achieve your dream score. It’s a good thing you have taken your GMATPREP once. You now know your weaknesses and work on them. If you are willing to study dedicatedly for three months, you are sure to achieve your goal. I believe you may benefit from taking a GMATPREP course. If you are willing, 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, Magoosh and Optimus Prep as they have great reviews on GMATCLUB.
Also for verbal, I would highly encourage you to consider e-gmat verbal online or the e-gmat verbal live course. They are both 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.

You can also try out the MGMAT guides they are phenomenal and cover the entire syllabus really well. Just by going through these guides and solving the OG will help you reach 600+. I must add that if you are particularly looking to discover and improve on your weak areas in quant; a subscription to GMATCLUB tests is the best way to do that. They are indeed phenomenal and will not only pinpoint your weak areas but also help you improve on them. 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. 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 and the verbal review 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.

Hi Navyamonav

I know what you are going through exactly. But as the experts say above, you need to boost both sections. For me, working through the directory for quant on daily basis from 500 - 600 level and then mix of 600 - 700 really helped. I did buy the GMATCLUB tests but they're selected out of the directory itself, and quite a few of those are mostly questions designed or uploaded by Bunuel (all hail him/her/them :) ). So going through topic wise with a fine tooth comb (problems + explanations beneath) shoudl help. Being a non quant person, I did go back to school books for a few topics (coordinate geo/ number systems/ mixtures), but it may or may not be needed for you. Along with this I keep an error log and repeat the questions and sections per schedule. Verbal I follow similarly, but I went with the 600 level ones only for practice. I am still not a high scorer (700+) but hope to get there soon :)
