8 months ago my GMAT diagnostic was 370
Q-36
V-8

I left my job , I was on full studies at home and was trying everything to bring my score to 650+

Last day i gave GMAT and scored 540
Q-40
V-22

I studied from Manhattan , Official guide ,Princeton Review, Practiced more than 2000 questions of each section , Done more than 200 RC

Now I have 4 months to appear again for summer admissions

I want to pursue MS in Entrepreneurship and Innovation

Target score is 700 or at least 680

ON THE EXAM, I FOUND [color=#ed1c24]RC to be way tougher than usual 600-700 level RC , I WAS SHORT ON TIME ON VERBALS, My SC was also average [/color]

I am weak in English

I need step by step work to be done on daily basis but I will join work now.....Is there anyone who can understand my situation as I WAS ALWAYS WEAK IN MATHS AND VERBALS???

I can drag my score of quant to 46 at least....I Scored low on Quant becoz I did a terrible mistake of not studying it for 2 months and focusing entirely on VERBALS when I scored 47 on GMATPREP and studied QUANT a week before and I realised i was down again but IT WAS TOO LATE...

BUT PLEASE GUIDE ME IN STEP BY STEP WAY to help me reach 680 at least

Amazing jump in Verbal section. This proves that you have the caliber to work hard and deliver. There is still room for improvement. So we can address that.

4 months is sufficient to improve on both the sections.

I believe you need to sit down and throw anxiety out of the window. It won't serve you any good. You can fret all you want but that won't help an ounce to reach 700.

Start with a plan. Retrospect and identify your weak areas. Try to devote more time to those sections but do not ignore any section.

Practice and you will improve your accuracy.

Start with SC. It will be easier to check your progress. List down all the rules and memorize them. More importantly, read and understand the meaning.

Work on RC. Start with sub-600 and gradually move upwards. Start reading materials outside of GMAT such as journals, blogs etc. which are dense so that you get a feel of real RC.

Practice under real time exam conditions and analyze more than you practice.

There are some amazing articles that can actually guide you.

Good Luck!

bb our lessons are all free as well. I think it's worth mentioning it.
Also, Khan Academy's videos where they solve the OG from 2015 can also help many: https://www.khanacademy.org/test-prep/gmat

Free GMAT Prep Tools to Break the 700

If you knows others, please post and mods will add to the list

1. GMAT Club Forum Workbook
All of the questions you attempt on the GMAT Club Forums with the built-in Timer will be saved in your workbook that you can use as an error log later to identify patterns, weaknesses, or attempt the questions you got wrong again. Plus - we will also send you daily questions based on your practice history/level.
• Use it as an automatic error log - all questions you attempt are recorded in a dedicated workbook area
• Achieve better time management
• Analyze your strengths and weaknesses
• Practice in test-like conditions
• Analyze detailed statistics (nice charts included)

2. GMAT Club Rewards
You get rewarded for participation on GMAT Club - make sure you take the most advantage of the rewards. You can get GMAT Club Tests, Premium MBA Bundle, GMAT courses, and admissions consulting packages.

3. GMAT Timer
• Very flexible downloadable timer for PC (mac options available) written by Walker
• Alarm mode
• Countdown mode
• Performance statistics
• Comes with sounds and all other possible bells & whistles

Another cool tool by Walker - the best selling GMAT app in the iTunes store with 992 practice questions and features that will satisfy the wildest minds

5. New Error Log and Original Error Log
Think of the error log as a list of problems you definitely want to go over in your final week of prep.
• Questions you got wrong
• Questions you got right,but with some divine intervention.
(guessing)
• Questions you got wrong in a timed environment. <-- Very very important

For each of the above categories, make sure to note down the software/book in which the problem was there and of course the problem number. This list, IF done properly, will be the BEST prep material you will ever find because its customized to help you on your weak areas. Work on this LIST in your final two weeks along with the official guide.

• Make sure you practice in a timed environment whenever possible.
• Keep a spreadsheet and categorize your errors. at the end of every week, you will see a trend in your errors. analyze, write down a strategy to eliminate and stick to it.

• The idea is that you should never make the same mistake twice Prepping for long hours will NOT make any sense if we keep repeating the same mistakes over and over.Use all the advantage you can. and eliminating silly errors is definitely possible.

6. GMAT Calendar
A new little tool one of the members developed to keep them honest and realistic about the prep.
I would highly recommend placing a few days off here and there (that was my mistakes, not taking any time off and I think it has been too hard on me as the result)[rating1]yellow/79588[/rating1]

Now, you may ask - do you really need a guide to the guide? Well, yes, if you are planning to practice a certain type of questions or if you would like to know their difficulty. You can download our spreadsheet that catalogs every question and also shows which questions are new to the Official Guide and which have been carried over from previous edition.

Also, try out the Magoosh GMAT Companion for the Official Guide:
GMAT Official Guide Companion

8. A very comprehensive set (actually several sets) of Flashcards for study on the go or just to jog your memory and knowledge. Now, Flashcards are not really a very comprehensive way to study but they can be very helpful if you combine the set already made with your own cards/tips/tricks/notes that you have made and in particular on the areas you have the most challenges with.

9. Collection of All Free Trials
Get the best courses and tests free of charge with these great offers from Test Prep companies collected in one place.

10. [Subscribe via E-mail | Subscribe via RSS Feed]
This is an absolutely free service provided by GMAT Club - every day you will receive 2 questions (one math and one verbal). These will be 2 challenging questions with answers and explanations (link provided) from the tough question collection of GMAT Club Tests

11. Do you need to convert percentiles, raw scores, or to know how many more V's or Q's you need to make that 700? This post is your friend with numerous tables, charts, and conversion tools. This is a different tool/table from the above [rating1]yellow/83890[/rating1]

12. One final and very powerful Score Estimation tool! If you have taken Kaplan and made 650 and then got 700 on Manhattan GMAT - what GMAT score should you expect? (This tool will give you the idea!) [rating1]yellow/12345[/rating1]

Thank you. The current mobile app does not support Kudos unfortunately. There is a long work around to do it (long press on the body of post and tap Web View and open the post/page in browser).

We are working on the new app and hope it will be a good improvement.

Re: GMAT Prep Tools 2019 [#permalink]
Hi,

I am starting out with GMAT prep and to assess current state I took free GMAT diagnostic test by Manhattan. I scored 520 (Q36, V26) in the test. My target score is 700+. I need help with how should I proceed with my test prep. I am giving myself 4-5 months' time, starting from April 2018 to August 2018. To give a background, I am literally scared of mathematics, however I am comfortable with Verbal.

Any help is much appreciated.

Organized and Consistent study is the only solution to any exam, not just GMAT. Here is one post of mine that would help you with both:
https://gmatclub.com/forum/need-guidanc ... l#p1972369

As you talked about quant, focus on the following;
1. Follow Bunuel on gmatclub. Solve all the question he posts. For almost all the questions out there, you will see his solution, which is very precise. I also like GMATPrepNow's solution, so follow and see their explanations too.

2. Do quizzes/CATs from gmat club CATs.

3. See these posts:
https://gmatclub.com/forum/ultimate-gma ... 44512.html
https://gmatclub.com/forum/all-you-need ... 40445.html

If you still have any doubt, please post.
