Memorizing Prime number between 1 and 100.
All numbers ending with 1,3,7,9 and not a multiple of 3,7 are prime numbers.

I don't think you have exhausted everything

1) All 5 Manhattan Quant Guides.
2) Manhattan SC Guide.
3) Powerscore CR Guide.
4) Aristotle RC 99 Passage.pdf

Now go for the below section, but make sure you have atleast one strategy you follow for every question for each section.
DON'T ATTEMPT ANY QUESTION WITHOUT A STRATEGY.
Now for strategy, please lookout yourself which one suites you better.
AND ONCE YOU DO COUPLE OF QUESTIONS, PLEASE MAKE SURE TO ANALYSE IT. (Manhattan site has a good analyzing method)

Then
1) OG 10 Quant PS and DS
2) OG 10 SC
3) OG 12/13 CR
4) OG 12/13 RC

Ok, do the above and then we will discus more.

Hey!! don't assume that I am a biggy..... I havent given any GMAT so far. Planning to give in 1st week of August.
As of now, my maximum score on any test is 620 (V31 Q42) . The suggestions above is all as per my understanding.

i have done all this. the thing i have not been able to developed is time management and stamina. i think these are the only factors which create the difference

so for you as well it better to give as many mock cat as possible to develop the above

kudos if you like

Thanks bro... never knew profile update matters for Kudos. Updated it... and it looks good

For timing... what i follow is something like this.

Quant:
By the end of 10 questions, you should have 55 mins left.
By the end of 20 questions, you should have 35 mins left.
By the end of 30 questions, you should have 15 mins left.
By the end of 37 questions, you should have 00 mins left.

For Verbal:
By the end of 15 questions, you should have 45 mins left. 30 mins (you take time, get comfy)
By the end of 30 questions, you should have 22 mins left. 23 mins (pace up yourself)
By the end of 41 questions, you should have 00 mins left. 22 mins

But for verbal, it all depends upon the type of questions you encounter in the three sections mentioned above.

OK, since I don't have posting "New Post" rights.
I'll try to post here. something I haven't seen so far in GC.

something that will help beginners a lot understanding difference between Assumption and Strengthen Questions.... (as per my understanding.)

The diagram is based on an example from Powerscore guide. Teenager and Golfer.

KUDOS if you feel its

For Strengthen Except question, replace the two words... Strengthen with Weaken and vice versa

What I have seen so far, most tough questions involving EXCEPT questions have answers falling exactly on the "Irrelevant" point

someone suggested not to do the OG 10 CR.... because the 5 option of those questions were based on "best answer choice" ... while that of OG 12,13 are as per the recent pattern of GMAT i.e. there is only one correct answer.

can anyone please confirm if doing OG 10 is good option or not, seeing the recent GMAT pattern of CR questions.
