GMAT in 30 days - general / timing strategies? [#permalink]

I have so far taken 4 timed practice - the two free official ones (both at 710, q50/v36 and q48/v40, taken 3 weeks apart - slightly disappointed with the lack of improvement), and 2 MGMAT exams (620/660).

I am aiming for a score around 750. What should I do from here? I still have ~40 questions from the verbal / quant OG guide but have not started gmatprep yet.

Also on timing strategies in verbal, do we absolutely get 4 RC passages (I heard sometimes we get 3). I am a slow reader and don't want to freak out when I see an additional RC passage towards the end of the exam!

Thanks!

You've done really well on the two GMATPreps you've taken. If you can get a Q50 and a V40, you'll get a 740. That is, you're already capable of getting the score that you want (as long as the tests were taken under exam conditions). It might be better, however, not to put too much pressure on yourself to get that score, because exam day pressure has not been factored into your GMATPrep scores, and any additional pressure could lead to underperformance. Material: I'd advise you to take another 4-6 tests (the 4 Exam Pack tests should be great). You can also think about using Question Pack 1.

It's normal to get 4 passages. Some people report getting 5, but I don't think it's very common. Make sure you have a good timing strategy, as managing your time well could help you deal with any unexpected situations.

Hi golden999,

Since we are ​specialized in math, we can only give you advice on math.

Please note that mock test scores ​may ​tend to be higher than actual GMAT scores and we don't recommend for our members to solely rely on mock test scores.

Based on your mock test score, it seems like you have decent math skills. We highly recommend taking Short-Cut 51 to make sure you hit Q49-51 on actual GMAT​, if you want stable and solid Q50. ​In addition, we have 700+ level questions available which you can practi​ce ​to ensure the score​ of Q50-51. http://www.mathrevolution.com/gmat/700level

With our unique approaches of Variable approach for DS and IVY approach for PS, you can significantly save time, and will have 10 minutes to spare on exam.

For instance, with our approaches, you can solve questions that normally take 4 minutes in 1 minutes and 30 seconds, and 2-minute question in 30 seconds.

Also, You can solve DS questions 100% with Variable approach and 30-40% of PS questions with IVY approach.

If you would like to try our approaches, Please try Trial Pack (4 hour lesson) that reveal our secret approaches of DS+PS core theory that you have never seen. You can test whether you like them or not before you enroll.

Additionally, the below is a useful article featured in GMAT Club for your reference. This will be helpful for you. You can see what sort of questions you might encounter on actual GMAT.

Yes. Sometimes you get 3 passages but with different number of questions per passage.
