Hello everybody,

I am going to take the exam in February, debut March 2019.

For Quant, I already done my revision in GMAT Club Math Book and the documents that I have. I've heard that GMAT Club Test Quant is the best to get a Q48 or above, is that correct?

For Verbal, I also done my revision and I used the OG 2018 +2019 to practise with the authentic questions in there. Is that enough or should I do elsewhere ?

Thank you guys so much,

Shinichi.

Hi Shinichi,

Yes, if you are particularly looking to discover and improve on your weak areas in Quant; a subscription to GMATCLUB tests is the best way to do that. They are indeed phenomenal and will not only pinpoint your weak areas but also help you improve on them.

Further taking multiple mocks might help. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

Further another advantage of taking many mocks is to build up your stamina. Apart from the GMATPREP tests, taking practice tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

Lastly I would also encourage you to but the GMATPREP QP 1 for some great additional practice.

Hope this helps. All the best!

Hi shinichikudo,

1) How many practice GMATs have you taken? Please list the dates on which you’ve taken any practice GMATs, the total scores, and the quant, verbal, and IR scores, as well as how you were feeling while taking the tests. Also, please tell me where these tests came from (ex: mba.com).

2) Please describe how you have been studying. For many hours a day and for how many months?

3) To what programs will you be applying? What are the deadlines for these programs?

4) By when would you LIKE to take the GMAT? By when MUST you take the GMAT?

5) How many hours a day, on average, can you study between now and your next GMAT?

6) What is your GMAT score goal?

Once I learn a bit more about you, I can provide some detailed advice.

Hello Scott,

1/. I haven't take any practice exam on the GMAT Official website (EP1 & EP2 or more), but I will do it soon because I don't have much time.

2/. I have been studying the GMAT since 2017, I took the real exam once. But at the time I did not study the GMAT with the right way, just study by myself so I did not have a good score.

Now I have been studying since october 2018 with more than 8 hours aday.

3/. I will apply for my PhD program in France, my deadline is in April 2019.

4/. I plan to take my exam by the end of February, or debut March only, no extension.

5/. I will try my best to complete the rest of what I have done.

6/. My target score is about 670- 690.

Hi shinichikudo,

Thank you for responding. Before I provide further advice, let's see how far you are from your score goal. Could you take an official practice exam ASAP and report back here with the score breakdown?

Hi shinichikudo,

Since you'll be applying to PhD Programs, you'll be dealing with a smaller number of (likely) highly-qualified applicants competing for a few 'spots', so every aspect of your application will likely be examined in detail - and a higher GMAT Score might be necessary. This is meant to say that the more time that you can put towards your studies, the better. In addition, you might want to discuss your application plans and profile with an Admissions Expert. There's a forum full of those Experts here:

If you have not taken that first CAT, then you should plan to take it in as realistic a fashion as possible - and you should certainly take all of your remaining CATs in that way (re: take the FULL CAT - with the Essay and IR sections, take it away from your home, at the same time of day as when you'll take the Official GMAT, etc.).

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
