I am writing GMAT on June 2nd.....
Just done with my last mock test MGMAT - Q47 V44 740 (still feel could have scored better on Quant) but on verbal this is my best score yet (been scoring 32-38 in previous tests). Please post any last few days tips for the prep. For Quant please post some links or review material for probability and combinations.

Last day tips:

Study wise:
- Read chineseburned's AWA guide.
- Brush up quants n SC rules one day before exam (today!)
- Do 10 questions of each type one day before exam (today!) - as warm up.
- Don't study on the exam day OR near the exam center just before exam.

General:
- Visit test center one-two days before exam.
- Do not carry any books/notes with you to exam center.
- Carry all necessary documents, snacks, water or energy drink, chocolates (to keep you happy n stress free)
- Utilize both 8 min breaks. Use restroom, stretch your arms n legs. Look in the mirror and say "I'll do it!"
- Dont look at the clock after every question. Check the clock at 10th, 20th, 30th and 35th question.
- Take every question as new opportunity.
- However you try, you cannot guess the test algorithm. So stop judging how good you are doing.

All the best!

Well done with the MGMAT 740! Generally MGMAT's quant scaled scores are a little tougher than the real thing, so you are on track to do very well. Along with the tips above, make sure not to over do it on your last day. You want your mind fresh going into your test, so don't take a practice test, or study 12 hours straight. You aren't going to learn anything you don't already know.

The advice that worked best for me was to just review concepts you feel confident about, and some that you just want to refine. Do practice problems, but make sure to work on the EASY problems. This will help you get these right on test day to bump you into the harder problems, and it will help build your confidence the day before the test. You don't want to go with 700+ level questions and hurt your confidence.

Then the morning before your test, pick out 5-10 easy questions and do these questions when you wake up. This will warn up your brain and get your ready for test day!

Keep visualizing yourself getting that Q50, V44 that you're hoping for, pumping your fist leaving the testing center, calling all your friends and family to tell them, and getting into your top school. This visualization will help you stay calm. Read my post here for some last second reminders of the right mentality to take with you: 10-tips-to-improve-your-score-app-with-no-extra-studying-124393-20.html

Congrats on the practice score. In the last few days, you should try a shotgun approach, pick questions at random from various questions and test yourself to answer them as quickly as possible, increasing your time efficiency.

You can review some permutation/combination questions here:

Then, maybe give it a shot with a permutation/combination question here:

How did you end up doing on the 2nd?

Did you cross the 700 barrier?

That should be plenty! Congratulations! That's a great quant score.... and screw verbal - it is for poets
If you can, please update your profile with schools/gmat info.

And good luck at Booth!

Thank you!
