Hey,

I finally made a step and registered to the forum. I took the test yesterday and thought that I will raise some questions regarding my practises. Originally I meant to ask two things in my first post, but than I thought that I will dissect these issues and here just only ask about advices on this following short period.

Okey. So briefly summing up:

I decided to take the test 6 month ago, but I could not really pay attention to the practice in the first three months. Then I decided that I quit my job and started focusing on the preparation solely. I registered to Magoosh, bought the manhattan book series and OG2019 too. In the first two month I was following the three month plan of magoosh, and finished with the lessons. I have never been really strong in math, and actually I did Art as a Bachelor. There were some things from the math lessons I could recall but mainly they were new to me. I tried to follow the Magoosh plan as strict possible spending 6-9 hours a day with studying.

6 month ago when I did not know anything about the test I did a 440 on mba first mock test. Than during the 3 month I did other mba mock tests and manhattan's too. They fell between the 450-550 range. I had a really disappointing test (480) 1 week before the real test. I hired a private teacher too for the last month (march-april) and I did a lots of problems every day. I heard that missing an easy at the test can lead to a sub600 score right away so I decided to focus on the easy problems and in the last few days I pushed mediums too.

When I went for the test I felt that I more or less did all I could in the last three month and I focused to give my best. I ended up with a score of 560 (Q39, V28) which I thought that it is not so disappointing although my highest expectation were 600+ as I am aiming for MIM-s in Europe in the top 30 range. I have good reco letters and experience in various managerial tasks (iam 27 right now). Even though I wanted to apply in April I am thinking of redoing the test and work more on my essays. May is the last deadline so I want to redo the text in 16-20 days.

I thought of the following daily preparation in this 2,5 weeks:

Re-do 15-15 Easy PS/DS daily (Magoosh/404 mba questions/OG)
Do 15-15 Medium too
Do 5-10 Hard (to be able to differentiate)
Do 4-6 RC (Magoosh/OG/404)
Manhatten SC book (heavy load every day)

What do you guys think? Could you please give your opinion on a good alternative for a 50+ increase in 2,5 weeks time?

All the best,
Áron.

Thanks for the advice this TTP seems nice! Probably a review could help also as I have not spend much time with reviewing while put a lots of effort in the initial learning.

Hi there!

TTP is a very intensive quant course and I would recommend you to try their free 5 day trial before investing in the full course.

Hi jozsaron,

As has already been mentioned, TTP could be a great resource for you to help you improve your quant score. That said, 2.5 weeks is not a ton of time to prep, so if you need some advice on how to use the course, feel free to reach out to me directly.
