Any tip on how to stay fresh on quant while studying for verbal?  [#permalink]

Dear fellows,

I've just decided to start studying for verbal, since I've spent quite a while for quant. Even tough I haven't reached my target on quant, I'm going to start for verbal, cause my preparation time is extending as I keep studying only quant. Also, I think even if I reach my target, I guess my skills will fade away while being busy with verbal, so I decided to run them on balance. But my time is really limited, I work almost 11-12 hours a day. So, guys, do you have any tips on how to study in balance and improve both of them?

Thanks

Hi Mehemmed,

You posted a similar message on November 9th, but you didn't provide much information on how you had studied up to that point. Before I can offer you any additional advice, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for each)?

Goals:
4) What is your goal score?
5) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

Hi EMPOWERgmatRichC,

Studies:

1) I've been studying for more than 6 months,but it's not a fully-focused preparation, but rather on and off studying.
2) I started with MGMAT guides (but didn't find it so helpful as many people recommend), then gmatclub forum question banks, and different GMAT books and video-lessons from multiple resources.
3) I took full CAT only once, when I started preparations. It was GMATPrep's diagnostic test. I scored 400 overall (Q32,V15). Since then I haven't took any, because I didn't reach my target level in quant (since I've been focusing only on quant)

Goals:

1) My target is 760 (Q51,V41)
2) I plan to take it in April or May
3) I plan to apply in next fall
4) When it comes to choosing a particular school, I haven't chose yet. I need a fully-funded scholarship, because of my family circumstances. Therefore, it doesn't really matter the school, of course I would go for a higher ranked school if I get scholarships from multiple schools.

Hi Mehemmed,

Many Test Takers spend 3 months (or more) of consistent study time before they hit their 'peak' scores, so it's likely that you just have not put in enough time and effort yet. Considering your Score Goal, studying "off and on" isn't going to be enough - you will have to commit to a consistent study routine and you would likely find it really beneficial to invest in a GMAT Course of some type (either Guided Self-Study or instructor-led).

In addition, since it's been so long since you took that initial CAT, we need to get a sense of your current 'skill level' with the GMAT. As such such, I suggest that you take a NEW, FULL-LENGTH CAT under realistic conditions - meaning that you should take a CAT that you have NOT taken before, in a location that is NOT your home, at the same time of day as you plan to take the Official GMAT and you must complete ALL sections (including the Essay and IR sections). Once you have that score you should report back and we discuss how best to proceed.

Rich
