I want to hear how to exert GMAT full-length practice test CAT--from your experience.
Now, I have completed studying stuff-- kaplan and Princeton-- to practice some quiz or exercise from those books.
However, I will plan to take GMAT in the end of July; thus, I hope to use efficiently my GMAT test CD-ROM(kaplan, PR, PP and 800 scores ).
Shall I adopt regular schedule(once or twice a week) or squeezed practice on last three weeks?

hi,

in all you would be having about 14 tests, it is better to start off your full length tests now with atleast 2 per week, so that by the end of June you get used to sitting for 4 hours at a stretch, it tests your timing etc...+ you would have to develop tremendous concentration....

good luck

You mean that could I strengthen my weakness by taking those practice test?

Now, I have somewhat confusing question when I can study official guide.
Today, I consult some experience taker about this issue. However, it is surprised that they think I only concentrate OG and old-actual question(in Taiwan, very popular prep books for preparing GMAT, they come from ETS in past PBT test), and then regrad kaplan and PR as supplement materials, unlike BB's comment.
I think this opinion results from the GMAT prep class in my country because the instructor in the craming school, in Taiwan, teachs its students by official guide as material. Plus, kaplan and PR books are not easily available in Taiwan bookstores. Consequently,in their impression, they only study a series of ETS stuff to prepare GMAT test.

Chihao,

I tend to concentrate on strategy rather than specific questions.

Doing a million of questions is good but you won't see those on the test; I just think strategy is a better investment. When you take the test - you check your level and see what is missing. At the same time, you practice sittng and reading for 3 or 4 hours and timing skills while you take those tests. I fully agree with Jabs; don't take more than 1 test a day though - I know people who did that and that's not wise. Review your tests carefully after you are done. It seems like you are studying from tests, which I am strongly opposed to; though if that's what you choose, at least review things carefully and write/print out the questions you missed and write the reason on them why. Put them into a folder and then in a few weeks pick it up and try to go over them again and see if you can do them this time.

You should brush up math and study some grammar from books not from individual questions. It is helpful obviously test your knoowledge and pick up bits and pieces from questions, but those are only bits a pieces. If that's all you have behind your back on the test, it is also probaby that you have some holes due to bits and pieces fallacy.

Basically these are two different prep approaches.

All the tests/books I had were Kaplan and PR. I did not read PR, just took 4 of thier tests and 4 of Kaplan's though I studied Kaplan's workbooks carefully. I DID NOT EVEN HAVE the OFFICIAL GUIDE and still scored enough.
