Hi,

I've been studying for almost 3-4 months now 'BUT' I never studied as hard as I should have. Invested like 3-5 hours a week. I am enrolled in a renowned online course in India,so that helped me to clear up basics but to what extent,I'm still not sure.

Yesterday I scored a 600 in MGMAT mock test.(V32, Q40)

How to get to 700 in a month or two? I have full day to study and I'm willing to put as much work as my body and mind allow me.

What should be my strategy? How many questions a day? From what sources? I need step by step instructions if anybody can help.

Thanks.

Hi, Your problem is a normal starter problem who gets dejected after 1st result. Don't be disheartened. I scored a mere 530 on my Gmatprep test and i have improved to 650. Still struggling to get to 700 since 3 months but will not leave prep. MBA is my dream
First thing is make error log where you are finding trouble. I guess from your score of Q40, you still have some issues in 600 level questions and concepts of trying various possibilities in algebra ques which GMAT test as tricks.
Don't go for no. of questions, This is big mistake . Go for quality questions. Do strengthen your theory. There can be 2 ways, Either you solve questions and get wrong and see explanation and then move or learn theory first and get all questions right and this will give you confidence and then you can move level higher and attain it. The latter is a better choice i think.
Further you will get many posts on this forum in which Students have left remark on how i studied and various resources used. I recommend you you to use this forum and download some resources ,search. There are some wonderful resources and explanatory enough to help you in your theory.
If you have done that part, Focus on hard questions, 600 level, Do daily 10 each. If you get wrong, Study that concept, Tomorrow do that wrong questions again till you absorb that concept.
Slowly you will do better and will be able to move on next level.

I hope this will help you .

Stay Strong. GMAT is not invincible.

Thank you Rishab for your great piece of advice. As I have taken an online course, do you recommend me going back to the concept videos of the questions I get wrong? Or do you suggest learning the concepts by merely solving questions and looking at the explanations.

And how do I manage Verbal and Quant. Together? (Mixed Questions per day?) Or One topic for one day and clear it out. For ex. CR on one day complete and then Permutations, Combinations and Probab the next day. And so on..?

Yes, surely you should get your concepts right . Go through learning.
Doing all questions a day is a good technique as you don;t forget concepts. But you can do this at a later stage when you get hold of concepts. As of now which ever method you feel is best for you as you are your best judge.

Hello Kanakshukrey,

GMAT is not as easy as we assume. GMAT math is logic, and GMAT verbal is a real test of English as a language. So we recommend you to look for reliable resources. Considering your target score as 700, remember various possible combinations to achieve a score of 700 or above: V37/Q50, V39/Q49, V43/Q45.

A score of 600 (V32, Q40) is decent, and to achieve a score of 700 is realistic. It is also good to observe that your basic concepts are clear, but you are finding it difficult to solve hard level (700+) level questions.

First, we recommend you not to lose hope. Keep yourself motivated. Eat healthily and take proper rest and sleep. Don’t slog your body for long hours. GMAT study requires a comprehensive study plan, updated questions, reliable resources, and shortcuts to score above 700.

First, get access to our free trial lessons and free videos by visiting at https://www.mathrevolution.com.

For math refresher, you may check our 5-hour lesson plan. Apart from this, you require unique and alternative approaches to solve the quant questions in a short period, and Up-To-Date questions that meet GMAT exam trends. Take our Q 51 shortcut module for the quant to deal with questions in less amount of time. Our experts will be there to help you.

Also, you should check this forum for some reliable resources related to verbal. For, sentence correction, you may refer OG or Aristotle Grail. For RC and CR, try solving level 700 questions.

Gradually, with the help of mock tests, you will be able to track your performance. You may try a free diagnostic test on our website.

Let us know if you have further questions.

You can reach us at info@mathrevolution.com

Success is within your reach.

Good luck!
