Thanks Guys for your wishes !!

Regarding E-gmat :
I have not gone through much but have attended few live sessions and I really liked them.
Only drawback is we need to spend a lot of time on live sessions and videos, but that is not a complaint because these are very important for sound understanding of concepts.
So being a retaker the course looks quite big to me( May be it is not. Very early to comment on the course length). I fear whether I have sufficient time to complete.

I m actually a self study guy.

My only strategy this time is to build sound fundamentals + official questions + concentration on quality and repeated practice instead of quantity.

I guess the concentration on quality and sound fundamentals would be rightly matched by e-gmat. I realized this especially after attending one CR session of Rajat. It reminded me of my engineering prep time when a lot of stress was given to build the basics. Once these are built we enjoy the study and no longer feel under-confident.
I felt the same yesterday and I hope I prove e-gmat to be a real non-native's solution by scoring high

I had been sleeping for months and now my gmat is in little less than 3 weeks time! I need an opinion in CR - to go for the Powerscore CR Bible or not. I dont have the book yet, neither do I want to spend those extra 20 bucks as I already have the MGMAT CR 5th edition (as part of the strategy set). Now I have read BB mention that the 5th edition has some significant changes and it doesnt make 'much' sense to own both (MGMAT and PSB) but since I have time to go through only one book I wouldnt really want to take a chance. Can someone kindly suggest if the MGMAT CR (5th ed) would suffice, or not?
Pardon me if I am slightly off-topic.

Since you already have Manhattan's CR guidebook, use that one. It's considered very reliable.

Thanks a bunch bmillan01 for the advice.
Stupid question alert:: If I stick with Manhattan CR and skip Powerscore CR, will I 'miss' any concept or important stuff if I am aiming at 700+ ? (I know it might have sounded far fetched too considering the time I have left but I would want to give it a shot nonetheless)

I have not read MGMAT CR so can not comment, but because of lack of time better spend your time reading MGMAT CR + Official Guides + Gmatprep only for CR.
Do not waste the precious time deciding whether to take new book. Many people have scored well using Mgmat CR too.

Powerscore CR is indeed a very good book, but Mgmat wouldn't be so below if not at par.

Good Luck and do share your GMAT experience.

I don't want to confuse you more but do remember one thing postponing only costs 50 USD and it is nothing compare to a good stellar score on the card. So if you think you are short of time then you might postpone, if feasible. Else even if not confident of preparation still give the exam as if you have done each and every question ever created.
Good luck.

Thanks bmillan01 and gurpreet. I completely agree with, and appreciate, your concerns here. Just that Im silly enough to prepare and to take the test in a month's time I feel I am a little less privileged to count it off as normal test anxiety, as someone with months of preparation would. Though the test day can be pushed (which I have already done :D ) I still want to take a hit from it and see how things go.

Hey ansh007! Though I guess I am as 'new' as you :D I can certainly say that the online tests that you get access to by purchasing any of the individual strategy guides from MGMAT are the same ones which you speak of (as part of the whole package from the website). If you are just aiming for the tests I believe it would be a wise call to just purchase the SC book, as it gets you access to an additional SC question bank. Ofcourse you can always pay extra to get access to all the 9 question banks :D but the 6 CATs will be the same.
Hope it helps.

Since I m short of time I would like to summarize my updates in few sentences.

CR, RC -> The emphasis of E-gmat on prephrase and understanding the structure of the passage is of utmost importance , and I really see how it is working well while practising. But sometimes non natives does have a problem of comprehension. So make sure you comprehend the CR/RC properly.

SC: E-gmat stresses on meaning and structure. Meaning is so important that the other errors become very easy to spot when you are able to get the gist of the sentence.
So far I have seen that if I m able to understand the meaning of the sentence, my Accuracy percentage is higher than that in other case.
That is why gmat often creates so confusing sentences with very unusual nouns that we are distracted from the meaning of the sentence.

if we are not stressing on meaning of sc and prephrase of cr/rc, we are at a big loss. So guys try to include it in your study strategy.
