Hey Fellas,

Been a while since Ive posted and participated in the forums. Took a few months off after scoring a disappointing 570 (Q34,V34, 5.5) on my first go round. Ive started back into the Kaplan 2008 book with the intention of doing a complete Verbal (last night, got a 36) and Quant (edit: scored a 29) practice test to get me back into the swing of things. Not a fan of the book but its definitely of good use for a refresher.

Im hoping to break the 650 barrier this time around with 700 as the ultimate goal. Quant was always my downfall in practice tests but I was scoring 600+ consistently before my first GMAT experience.

My study materials include:

OG11
OG Verbal
OG Quant
Kaplan 2008
MGMAT SC
MGMAT Number Properties & possibly the other 3 Quant books.
GMAT Club Challenges?

Since I am using the MGMAT & OG books to shore up my Verbal, I was curious, do you guys think the challenges would be of good use to me? I see most people taking them are already in the high 30s, low 40s and looking for a jump to high 40s.

I had scored between 33-37 in Quant on most of my practice CATs but definitely need to do things different this time around. Im hoping to move into the 40s on both sections. Hoping for a late November date set for my retake. Would love some suggestions on breaking to the next level, especially in Quant!

Would love some feedback guys. Also, can someone recommend a good Quant book to help me master most of the topics? All of the MGMAT books seem solid, should I just buck up for those and then purchase the Club Challenges?

The challenges are good practice. Also, do the 700+ quant questions in GMATPrep. The Manhattan Gmat forum is a good place to find these

The challenges would certainly be useful.

I would swap out Princeton Review's book for Kaplan, though. They are light years apart.

Aside from books (MGMATs SC and all of their Quant books I found beneficial and the OG11), I would make notecards and review basic concepts every other day. Taking a practice test once a week will be incredibly helpful for you. The GMAT is just as much a time management test as a quant/verbal skills test. For Quant, get the basic concepts down - the MGMAT word translations book helped me a ton.

Thanks a lot. I was considering making note/flash cards for a while. Im about to buy the MGMAT Quant books and go from there. Def will take a test a week. I have 3 MGMAT CATs left from my previous exam and will re-install GMAT Prep. Plus the challenges, I should be good on tests.
