•I divided the GMAT into the topics below:
o 17 QUANT topics: Number Properties, Fractions-Decimals-Percents, Ratios-Proportions, Exponents-Roots, Statistics-Data Interpretation, Sets, Combinatorics-Probability, Linear Equations, Non-Linear Equations, Inequalities-Absolute Values, Rate-Work, Functions-Sequences, Lines-Angles, Triangles, Quadrilaterals, Circles, 3-d Geometry and Coordinate Geometry.
o 14 VERBAL topics: Verb tense, Pronouns, Idioms, Modifiers, Parallel Structures, Subject-Verb Agreement, RC-Science, RC-Social Science, RC-Economics, CR-Weaken, CR-Strengthen, CR-Evaluate, CR-Inference, and CR-Resolve-Explain

Can I ask where you got the study materials (lessons, practice questions, solutions/explanations) for these topics? Did they come from GMATFIX's Companion? I plan to structure my study plan similar to yours, with the addition of mixtures, and maybe some other topics I feel I need help with.

I also made the mistake of reading several different vendors. It took up so much of my time. I assumed the more you read, the more different strategies you were exposed to, the more prepared you would be...

I would stay stick to MGMAT and OGs...

Rygaar,

Hi. question for you about OG companion. I am at a point where I am going through OG 11 the second time around and trying to really understand each quant problem. I have taken 3 practice exam from MGMAT and the math score was like a 19. Verbal is not great, but a bit higher, at around 29.

Needless to say, Quant is my weak point.

- I have one month left before the exam. Do you think purchasing this 600 page book for 1 month will be overwhelming (time wise), or do you think it can improve my scores?

-When I get the book, is it an electronic copy, or a hard copy? If it is an electronic copy, can I access it from anywhere? I looked around the site and it says something about logging my IP address. Does this mean that if I move, or if I try to access it from a different computer, it will not work?

I"m so close to getting it, but just want to make sure it will be worthwhile and will be accessible for me.

Hey semidevil,

If quant is your weakness, and you use the Official guide, then the OG Companion is definitely worth getting.

It's a big book, but you could focus on questions at your ability level. The book tells you the difficulty level of each question (200-400, 400-500, 500-600, 600-700, 700+), so if you know you are relatively weak at quant, you can ignore questions at 600+ level and make sure that you really understand the other questions (otherwise, you won't see the high level questions anyway).

Just my thought

•Too little review: When I did practice exercises and tests, I didn’t spend as much time as I should have going over the content. We all know that the Official Guide is great for practice but a bit skimpy on explanations.

Do you have any suggestions on where to get better explanations? Is there a product that has more thorough explanations of the OG?

I was wondering also to what product was being referenced for OG explanations? Is that the EZ or Manhattan Review Books?
