wow....you are human. :-D

Question.... When you do CR and RC problems, do you 'diagram' or take notes or anything like that?

alright, time for a somewhat embarrassing post.

I hate to admit it, but as G-day approaches, I've started to crack a little bit under the pressure.

I know that I can't let it get to me, and that I have to be confident. But on the road to 760 there is very little room for error.

I had trouble sleeping last night, and actually had my first gmat related nightmare! :shock:

So I'm going to take a step back tomorrow, and sort of just stop my prep work here. If I don't know it by now, I doubt that I will be able to absorb it in 1 day.

Also, going to try and get a good night of sleep.


Good luck, dude. You'll be fine.

I couldn't resist myself.

did 2 hard passages from V supp RC.

13/14, 1m30s

the timing is a deceptive as the real GMAT would only have about 5 questions on long passages, but even 2m00s I'll take.

The one error I had was on a tricky juxtaposition of one word that reversed two answer choices. Tricky tricky.

After the exam, I will get back to some of the questions you guys have been having lately. Right now, I'm in ass-kicking mode.

Yes, I annotate both CR and RC problems. The downside is that CR and RC take me a really long time to do. So I only recommend this strategy if a.) you can't get high hit rates without diagrams or b.) you can shave a lot of time off of your SCs

Yep. MGMAT = Manhattan Gmat.

Other than OG, I think it's the best for getting to 700+. To get over the 750 hump, you may need additional sources as well.

In order of how much I used them:
OG yellow, green, purple -- highly recommended
MGMAT -- recommended
Kaplan 800 - not recommended
Kaplan Comprehensive - only as a starting point
PowerScore CR bible (LSAT) - only read 1 chapter (it's long), so I can't really give you an informed opinion.
