Hi,
I have four months left for the GMAT,
I already have clarity of Quant concepts in my mind and have started doing problem sets of 10 OG questions of quant every day.
The main area where I lack is the verbal section. So I have started from the basics. The two books I am referring to are manhattan foundations in verbal and All the verbal. I plan first to finish SC, then Cr, and lastly RC. I will start doing sets of 8 OG questions daily for oral. I have also begun an error log for verbl and quantitative questions. Every Sunday, I practice my error log, and any question I get wrong twice goes into my flashcards. All my verbal concepts are on my flashcards, which I review daily. I have also started revising the formula sheet for quant from test prep almost daily. I have also reserved a few hours weekly to study the quant ch I find weakest. I use the manhattan prep books for quant.
My plan for the next three weeks is as follows:
- W2
- 9 Ch SC All the verbal
- Statistics
- Sequence and series
- Formulas revision every day
- 1 quant set every day
- Error log
- 4 CR ch from Foundations
- 6 h revision quant manhattan
- W3
- 7 ch CR all the Verbal
- 4 ch RC Foundations
- 6 ch RC All the Verbal
- 1 verbal set of OG
- Formulas revision every day
- 1 quant set every day
- Error log
- W4
- Formulas revision every day
- 1 quant set every day
- Error log
-Verbal Set and Quant set every day for three days

My questions are:
Is this plan correct, and what should I improve in it?
SHOULD I START OG QUESTIONS THIS EARLY!!
OR SHOULD I DO KAPLAN QUESTIONS OR SOME OTHER RESOURCE??
I know this post is long, but I am confused and require help😢

What is the best way to revise my verbal and quant concepts, to keep them fresh before the exam.

I don't know if I am too late for responding but this post- https://gmatclub.com/forum/beginner-to- ... l#p2313182 has a lot of information on what you can do. You can start where ever you see fit.

Hi, I am not English native speaker.
When I read passages, I feel hard and difficult.
Besides, I don't know how to learn CR?

Have suggested Manhattan-Prep's 6th Edition for CR to students.

You don't need to improve your English for the GMAT, you only need to learn to recognize patterns. GMAT is a pattern based test. So long as you are able to read, you have enough skills in English.
The part you need to learn English better is the interview for Business schools. But pretty much even then, there are ways you can get across.

Still, this might help- https://gmatclub.com/forum/beginner-to- ... l#p2313182

If only people knew how to use GMAT Club for their prep right, they literally won't need anything else.

I'll get a roadmap created sometime that literally will begin with GMAT and end with the MBA Admission

The classic GMAT works in the following way.

It starts by presenting a medium-level question. If you get that question correct, the difficulty of the next question will be higher. If you miss the first question, the difficulty of the next question will be lower.

Then, as you progress through the test, in general, depending on whether you get questions correct or incorrect, the difficulty will increase or decreases.

However, the difficulty will not increase or decrease throughout the test. Rather, if you get most questions correct, the difficulty level will hit a ceiling at some point in the second quarter of the test and then vary somewhat from question to question. So, especially hard questions will be mixed with somewhat easier ones. Similarly, if miss most questions, the difficulty level will stop decreasing at some point.

Your score will be based on the number of questions you get correct and the difficulty level of the questions you saw and got correct or incorrect.

The algorithm of the Focus Edition works similarly to that of the classic edition but not in exactly the same way.

One difference is that the Focus Edition seems to vary the difficultly level of the questions more than the classic GMAT does, with relatively easy questions and relatively hard questions mixed.

Another is that, on the Focus Edition, the difficulty of the early questions in the second and third section is affected by your performance on the previous section. On the classic GMAT, the second section starts off at medium difficulty no matter how you did on the first section.

Finally, the penalty for leaving a question unanswered is much heavier on the Focus Edition than on the classic edition.

Thanks for this awesome detailed study plan. I am planning to take the GMAT Focus edition, so is there any similar study plan or resources I could follow to prepare for Data Insights?

Due to popular demand, I've written a free GMAT Focus Study Plan (in Google Document form) that anyone can use.

I have also updated my full (and free) e-book, Master the GMAT, for the GMAT Focus Edition—including an improved and expanded chapter on Data Insights / Integrated Reasoning-style questions.

Interesting sir

It is a quite good job.

Would be useful , for example, when we do have such lines

5) 20 Official DI Questions on GMAT Club

to insert links maybe to the best questions or create a directory in which you put all the links, inserting in the plan just one link without a long list..........just an idea right off the bat!!!!

For the rest,
