Good morning/afternoon/evening folks- whatever time it is when you are reading this, I look forward to brainstorming with the awesome members of this forum. Right now I want to focus on strictly how I can improve my GMAT score, all other portions of my MBA application are on hold until I knock this out.

First attempt was March 16, 2016. I didn't study or prepare at all. Scores:
42 on verbal (96% percentile)
46 on Quantitative (60% percentile)
overall 710. (91% percentile)
analytic writing score was 6.0 (89% percentile)
integrated reasoning was 4 (40% percentile)

-I have scheduled my next exam for NOV 6 2017. This gives me roughly 50 days or so to prepare. I want to improve as much as possible.
-I have the Manhattan Prep GMA GUIDE books 0-9 (complete set.)
-I have the OFFICIAL GMAT GUIDE 2016 +OFFICIAL VERBAL REVIEW 2016 +OFFICIAL QUANTITATIVE REVIEW 2016 (ALL FROM GMAC)

What sections should I focus on to get the most BANG FOR MY BUCK? What kind of schedule have you guys found effective for your GMAT PREP? Bottom line...

What should my PLAN OF ATTACK BE?

Hi asadshaikh,

As you have a good score in Verbal, I would recommend you to focus your attention on Quant.
You should plan to study(60% of your time on Quant & 40% of your time on Verbal)

For that, you might want to start with the Manhattan Prep Guides! Though I haven't really read each of these guides, the little I have read is quite good. Here at GMATClub we have the Quantitative Megathread which has the theory related to each of the topics.

But since you have a Q46 in Quant(you maybe well aware of most of the concepts here, but its great practice)I would definitely recommend you to subscribe for the GMATClub tests(which should help you increase your score to Q50)
Also, do all the problem sets in Bunuel's signature(These questions give you a true taste of the traps you are going to encounter on the GMAT)

Hope that helps you!

Thank you for the insight. Will definitely cross reference the mega-thread if I run into any Quant-topics that give me trouble!
