Hello Everyone,

After studying for around 20 days, I appeared for my first GMAT CAT (Veritas free test). I scored 560 (41Q 26V). Honestly, I was expecting to score around that only. I have solved half of quant problems from OG15 so far and most of verbal problems. Since I am not a native speaker, I struggle with SC the most. Surprisingly, I got 10/11 SCs right on my test (Most from 500-600 level and a few from 600-700 level). (I have used manhattan SC guide so may be I improved bcz of that) tIn RC, I know I panicked and didnt read the whole thing and rushed into answering the questions. In CR, I did pretty okay. Somewhere in the middle.

Quant was better than verbal but after the first 10 questions I could sense that the level of difficulty was not increasing much even though I knew I was answering correctly.

Anyway, I have booked my exam date: 22nd August, which is approx. 2 months from now. I am aiming for a 700. I know my limitations so I dont intend to keep unrealistic expectations from myself.

Can someone guide me on how should I prepare in the coming months? Also, which practice tests are better Manhattan or Veritas?

This is what I have in mind about my study plan.
1. Finish OG, and go back to doing last 100 questions from each section. (As, they are comparatively more difficult than the rest)
2. Maintaining an error log. I practice everyday for 1.5 hours in the morning and 5-6 hours on the weekends as I am working.
3. Focusing on quant basics, using strategies etc. In verbal, when I have max concentration, I have even solved 700-800 level questions well. But, during my practice test, I know I panicked and went wrong. I think practicing more in that environment shall be helpful.
4. I am going to appear for 1 CAT everyday weekend. Review it and improve accordingly in the next one.

Doubts:
I am gonna run out of questions to solve. Which books should I consider for solving practice questions for both sections?

Thank you for reading this long post.

Hiii,

I have following resources available at my disposal:

1)OG verbal and quant
2)Manhattan foundation and Guides 0-9
5)Manhattan SC Guide

Would it be enough for starting preparation in time frame of 6 months.

Make a review arrange. By a long shot the best approach to plan for the GMAT is through normal review sessions in the 2-6 months before the exam. Remember that the normal test taker examines for around 50 hours, and a fourth of understudies report burning through 100+ hours considering for the GMAT

Hi BB,

Recently joined the club !

I have started my preparation for GMAT but it is taking me alot of time to solve quant problems by use of formula.
Is there any material or books which suggests different shortcuts for solving quant problems.

Thanks for help.

Hi! I have read through this and found this so encouraging. However, I am stuck at a unique point- after 2 months of prep I am able to score only about 470 -540 (my math had been so poor I had to re-do a lot of 10/11 grade math books for those months; in addition; I am from a complete non-quant, humanities background,so complete grounding was necessary) - can anyone help me out with a decent study plan for the next 2 months?(I hope to touch the mythical 700:)). I currently have a bunch of material and am swimming through it, unable to find a path . Would love anyone's input on this
