I have six weeks to study (just wrote CFA level 2) little burnout but work is kind of slow right now.
I dont want to come on here and just say please advise at all (can't stand that).
Just bought the new OG book and will go through that starting later this week. I realize the crossover between the CFA exams and GMAT is basically 0, except for sitting in one spot and doing an exam for a long period of time will come a little easier.

I would like to hear other short term strategies from people (is six weeks a ST approach even?). I am a native speaker with an economics major (I realize this math is different, but I was doing math while at school, never really struggled with it)

Sentence correction looks to be where I will struggle.

Before you dive into it, why don't you download GMATPrep and see how your score looks right now.

Based on your background, Math should not be an issue. You can probably master it with OG, though it does not provide strategies or much of concepts/formulas behind the problems. Since you have just 6 weeks, you may want to grab Kaplan math Workbook- you should be able to go through it in 2 weeks and get a more comprehensive coverage than from OG

Then you can get PowerScore CR book and Manhattan SC and Manhattan RC books though since time is short, perhaps PowerScore Verbal Bible will be a better choice - it is still a 450+ page book but it is shorter than those 3 combined.

The manhattan book will come with 6 tests (there is a code in the book that you enter online) Spend the last week or two taking the tests.
This assumes you want a 700+ score and have good foundation in Math and Verbal. If you need less, then you can chop things here and there. If more then it is a slightly different and longer story. Take the diagnostic test (GMATPrep) and see how you do. maybe you already have 700

As a CFA charterholder, I had to laugh when I read your post. I remember the week after each exam, I was so hyped up on studying so much that my brain was looking for work. (BTW, I took on Mandarin for about a week after L2...)

Benefit of just taken L2 is that you are in great mental shape....you just studied several months intensively and sat through one of the nastiest 6 hours that the mind can take.

I would take a GMATPrep to guage your strengths/weaknesses..then get ahold of MGMAT stuff and the OGS..and spend the next 1-2 months on that. Then, as with the CFA exam, start taking simulated CATS the last month.

But I would try to get the GMAT done before mid-August "if" you cannot deal with the possibility of a L2 failure....that negativity could set your GMAT prep back. Good luck.
