GMAT Full-Length Cat once a week? [#permalink]

New post 18 Oct 2017, 00:20
Hi, I am going to take the GMAT exam in january. I am currently using MGMAT books but I am planning to take a full test every week to track my progress (even concepts that I have not learn yet). I like the MGMAT but they don't have many questions on the book.

I am studying 1 to 1.5 hours a day during weekdays so I am able to read 1 MGMAT book a week. I want to do the GMAT Full-Length Cat every saturday afternoon.

What do you think about that strategy?

I think you should start taking your CAT towards fag end of the preparation.
You can take one CAT to analyse your strengths and weaknesses and then prepare accordingly.

A CAT every weekend in the last stages of preparation is fine. But in the start you should invest more time on understanding the concepts. You can refer to GMAT club directory for evaluating yourself on course of the preparation.

CATs every week from start of preparation wouldn't be of much use for now. The score would not be a true reflection of your capabilities and might affect your confidence if you get a low score or might make you complacent if you do well.

You can take one mock to see where you are currently. And then start taking it regularly once you have at least gone through all concepts. Then you can use the mocks to spend more time on areas where you don't do well in the mocks.

How many (good) CATs do you have? Keep in mind that you might want to keep a few in hand just in case you need to take the GMAT again.

I think that's unwise.... and why aren't you using the OG questions that are recommended in the MGMAT Guides as well?

Hi Piezarro35,

You've been a member of this site for about 6 months, but it's not clear how long you've actually been studying. 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 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 apply to Business School?
6) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

According to me you must have completed the OG ,Quant review and the VR before giving tests in regular intervals. Also it's usually recommended to give a test after 20-30 hrs of preparation. what I would do is based upon the results of the very first test that i took ,zero in on the weak areas and spend considerable amount of time on them while staying in touch with the rest of the syllabus.
