Hey All,

I've been reading through topics on this forum a bit and wanted to see if anyone had any good advice for "tying" everything together towards the "end" of ones studies. I've been studying for the GMAT for the past 5 months pretty aggressively. I've taken a Manhattan Prep Class and done almost all of the Official GMAT Prep questions available for Quant. I would say that I've logged around 250+ hours so far. I'm at the point where I'm trying to figure out the past way to manage my time and stress on the test but have been pretty inconsistent with my scoring. I feel very strong with both the quant and verbal content and have no problem doing sets of 10 questions and staying around 80% - 90% correct. You'll see from my scoring that I've been able to get Q49/Q50 twice before but I can't seem to stay consistent. My verbal has now reached V42 back to back and I feel like if I work through some timing kinks it could get a bit higher ( I find I rush through the last 4 / 5 questions ).

My tests have progressed in the following manner. My first three MGMAT tests were done during the prep course and I started to show a good improvement. The middle three tests were all GMAT Prep tests and one was an official GMAT test take. The last bunch of "tests" have all been within the past two weeks.

MGMAT - 510
MGMAT - 570
MGMAT - 660

GMAT Prep - 680 ( Q42, V40 )
Official GMAT Test - 570 ( totally bombed in a testing environment due to poor nights sleep and center jitters )
GMAT Prep - 600 ( After taking one week off from studying.

GMAT Prep - Q49 ( I did a quant section on its own )
GMAT Prep - V42 ( I did a verbal section on its own )
GMAT Prep - Q50 ( I did a quant section on its own )
GMAT Prep - Q42 ( I did a quant section on its own )

GMAT Prep - 680 (Q41,V42) My most recent full test with back to back sections.

I would love to be able to land Q50,V42 on a full test. I have landed Q49 and Q50 on quant sections on their own. I'm not sure what else to review for quant as I feel very strong in the content. When I've scored Q50/Q49 it's because I'm applying more theoretical knowledge in quant but I'm not sure how to "review" for this aspect at this point. Should I just continue reviewing timing and questions? When I review my Q42 / Q41 tests I realize I've made a ton of simple errors. My Q49 /Q50 sections I'm pretty airtight on. I've found that I need to warm-up before quant as I've scored the highest when I've already done at least 20 questions before doing a full quant section. Any suggestions here as well would be helpful!

Much thanks!

Hi jgoulart13,

Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on your Official GMAT Score and how you took your CATs:

1) On what date did you take the official GMAT? What were your Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores on your Official GMAT (the 570)?

When you took your CATs:
1) On what dates did you take your CATs? What were the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH CAT?
2) Did you take the ENTIRE CAT each time (including the Essay and IR sections)?
3) Did you take them at home?
4) Did you take them at the same time of day as when you took your Official GMAT?
5) Did you ever do ANYTHING during your CATs that you couldn't do on Test Day (pause the CAT, skip sections, take longer breaks, etc.)?
6) Did you ever take a CAT more than once? Had you seen any of the questions BEFORE (re: on a prior CAT, in an online forum or in a practice set)?
