Hello everyone,

These forums have been very helpful, and I was wondering what people thought about my planned study program.

I am still finishing up my undergraduate degree so I am starting slowly.

Because i have a perceived quantitative weakness, I am going to start with basic math, Math Review for Standardized Tests
and then use the Manhattan GMAT guides for strategies on everything else.

For the verbal, which I tend to do better on, I have the Manhattan GMAT SC review, the PowerScore CR Bible, and LSAT Logical Reasoning Bible to help with that portion of the test. I have heard this is overkill, but I plan on taking the LSAT as well.

After doing the strategy guides, I plan on working through the OG 11, the OG verbal review, and the OG math review. I read somewhere that there is varying content in OG 10, and 12. Since I think the Manhattan GMAT guides have you work through the book, would it be a good idea to get one of those and work through it as well?

I am going to use an error log as detailed on one of the forums on this site. I plan on taking the test sometime after summer next year.

My first Kaplan practice test was a 550, and then I took the Knewton one two weeks later and got a 640. What do you think of this plan as a method of preparation?

Welcome to GMAT Club.

The plan sounds good. You can use OG 12 with the MGMAT Guides. Don't think you need OG 10 - you are already going the extra mile, and since your head is a lot younger and fresher than most here, you should get a pretty good score just with half the materials you mentioned (700+). So, don't worry about having enough materials, rather worry about getting burnt out.

One piece of advice - don't drag it out too long. Don't spend more than 4-6 months prepping. Otherwise you will waste a lot of good materials and still end up with 650.
Does that make sense?
