Hey jinitbheda,

In this last phase of your preparation, do as many official questions as possible.
If money is not a problem and if you have not bought the paid tests
invest in the other GMATPrep tests(EP1 & EP2) and the GMATPrep Question Pack(QP1).

More importantly, try to figure out what was the reason for the Q47?
If it is because of some specific topics, revisit the concepts and do specific area-wise practice.
Work on those areas in which you had made mistakes and then take a test 4-5 day later.
Use the tests/questions discussed on GMATClub(specific type) to find out if you repeat those mistakes.

Hope that helps you!

Hi jinitbheda,

Assuming that these practice CAT Scores are accurate, then you are remarkably close to scoring 700+ right now. At higher-and-higher score levels, the GMAT becomes really 'sensitive' to little mistakes though, so it helps to know WHY you're getting questions wrong. As such, you should always do a full review of each CAT that you take.

After reviewing each section of your last CAT, how many questions did you get wrong....
1) Because of a silly/little mistake?
2) Because there was some math/verbal that you just could not remember how to do?
3) Because the question was too hard?
4) Because you were low on time and had to guess?

Once you define why you're getting questions wrong, you can put in the necessary effort to 'fix' those issues and potentially score higher.

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

Hi jinitbheda,

Given how close your GMAT date is, I personally do not think one should adopt any new method on the final leg of their GMAT Preparation. I think you can focus a bit on verbal. If, you are only looking to identify and improve on your weak areas, I would encourage you to purchase the e-gmat scholaranium. It is without a doubt, one of the best practice tools for verbal and will indeed help you on the final leg of your preparations. You can also consider GMATPREP QP 1 which consist some great questions to help you with your prep.

Hope this helps. All the best.
