Hi

It is good you know you weak points, it is one of the core issue.

1. I know what my weaknesses are, do I have to start there? Or not?

Yes! it is better to start where it needed.

2. Do you recommend to buy the Official Guide of GMAT? I'm not sure.

You must have Official Guide. Practice only Official Questions.

Good Luck

Hi Vergi,

It's a good thing that you have identified your weaknesses. You should certainly focus on them as it will indeed help you improve your confidence as well as your score. I will recommend you to take mock tests at regular intervals to evaluate your performances. 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.

Further, I would also encourage you to purchase not only the latest version of OG and the verbal review but also the GMATPREP QP 1 for some great additional practice.

Hope this helps. All the best!

Hi Vergi

Welcome to GMATClub

In addition to whatever rohan2345 has already written - I would like to bring to your
attention, this very forum which you can use very effectively to build up your concepts.
You could alternatively use the Manhattan Strategy guides to build your concepts

1. Follow Bunuel at the Math Forum(for Quant Section)
His signature contains some awesome questions that give you the true taste of GMAT.
Baker's Dozen, 12 Easy Pieces etc.. Even otherwise, solve each and every question he
puts up on the forum. They definitely give you all the practice that you need for Quant.

2. Once, you begin with the preparation for GMAT, dedicate every ounce of your free
time to it. Since you are only beginning with your preparation, it makes sense to clear
your concepts for every topic and follow it up with some practice. You can find all the
questions you need for practice, here at GMATClub and the Timer feature will help you
understand your ability to perform under the clock.

These are some links which I found to be very beneficial
GMAT Club Maths Book: https://gmatclub.com/forum/gmat-math-book-87417.html
Quantitative Megathread: https://gmatclub.com/forum/ultimate-gma ... 44512.html

You might also want to check the GMATClub Tests(which can help you improve your score)
You could either buy them or earn kudos to redeem the tests. GMATClub tests contain
some awesome questions which bring out the best when it comes to the Quant Section.

Last but not the least, you might want to check this study plan out
https://gmatclub.com/forum/study-plan-383/

Hope that helps you in some way!

1. We recommend taking a full length practice test through the GMAT Prep software or online version from mba.com -so you can familiarize yourself with the interface and the mental anxieties that can happen as you go through the process.

You'll also get a feel for the various question types and the pace at which you will need to move for the real thing.

So these elements are in addition to knowing where your weakness is.

2. Yes - you should definitely by the Official Guide for practice. This along with the GMAT Prep software or online version from mba.com + a supplemental 3rd party source should be the 3 main sources for your prep.

During your SC studies, we encourage you to follow along expert video explanations to guide you in your thought process.

Here's a shared Google doc of video links you may find helpful:

Hi Vergi,

I’m glad you reached out, and I’m happy to help. Before providing specific advice, I’d first like to learn more about your situation with the GMAT. I have some questions:


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? What resources have you been using?

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?

Also, you may find it helpful to read this article about how to score a 700+ on the GMAT.

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