Hi singh8891,

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) How have you scored on EACH of your practice CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?
2) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
3) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

Hi singh8891,

It would be a good idea to take a mock test to evaluate how much you have really grasped from your efforts so far. Based on your scores in the mock test, you can adapt your study plan to reach your target score. I think you will find our article on Personalized Study Plan to be useful in creating your plan to reach a 700+ score. This article also has sample plans for your reference. If you have any queries or need help in creating a plan, write to us at support@e-gmat.com.

Regards,

Hey singh8891!
good question. You are at an important crossroads of sorts - you have already studied all of the fundamentals, and now it is time to improve you test taking strategies.
These are my general thoughts on what you should aim for in the next 45 days:
1. Focus extra practice time on your areas of weakness – What matters is getting to the correct solution, fast: the problem is that just solving lots of questions (with practice tests or coaching) is not sufficient in terms of improving mental flexibility. Actually, the opposite is true. Solving thousands of questions without improving your mind’s flexibility will only cement the wrong thinking patterns.
2. Train yourself to find YOUR best solution approach to answering GMAT questions – The GMAT measures your ability to flex your mind. There is often more than one way to get to the correct answer - the trick is figuring out which is that way that is FASTEST for you.
3. Researching your errors is even more important than solving new questions – Which tools am I using betters than others? What are the main reasons for my mistakes? Which other tools should I learn to apply better? And when it comes to verbal questions, it is also crucial to analyze the answers: why is the correct answer correct? What is wrong with the wrong answers?
Practice test should be used as tools for improvement, not just to see “where I stand,” which means that you should allow 4 hours of research for every test, and not take two tests in one day, one after another, so as to allow yourself some time to strengthen your weaknesses and prepare for your next opportunity to improve.

That’s my answer in a nutshell, but I’d be happy to go further into it with you and answer any follow-up questions you may have.
If you tell me what your strengths and weaknesses are, I can try to give you more specific advice.

Talk to me here (in the chat bubble in the bottom-right corner). Waiting to hear from you!

Hi singh8891,

I’m glad you reached out, and I’m happy to help. Before I provide specific advice, it would be helpful to know your baseline GMAT score. Could you take an official practice exam and report back with your score breakdown?

Also, I realize that you would like to take the GMAT in October; however, by when MUST you take the GMAT?
