Hi from Brazil!

I have studied the Manhattan strategy books (CR, RC, SC) and completed the On Demand Manhattan GMAT Prep, but my score isn't getting any higher. I have plenty materials such as: 1- the complete Veritas GMAT prep books; 2- Official Guides (Verbal and Math Reviews); 3- Princeton Review; 4- Kaplan Program and Math WorkBook; 5- Sections for RC & SC from ARCO, CLIFF, BARRON, SUPERCOURSE, HBJ, KAPLAN, CRACKING and so on. But I having a hard time to develop a study plan, can someone please help me out to build one?

Many Thanks! Guilherme

Hi Guilherme,

From what you describe, you have focused on a 'book heavy' study plan. Unfortunately, many Test Takers who use that type of study approach end up getting 'stuck' at a particular score level, so it's possible that that has happened to you as well. Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores)?

Goals:
3) What is your goal score?
4) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
5) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
6) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

I think a good starting point is to take a full CAT and use that as your baseline score.

I have the same problem. I took the full MGMAT CATs and 2 official prep CATs with only the quant and verbal sections. I used to score in the 680-690. However, with the actual test I scored 640 and I got disappointed because I did not factor in the AWA and IR in my practice. So i even though I understand all concepts my verbal score only isnt improving.

You have the best resource at your disposal, so the only additional resource you need is

The course come with a study plan, so use it.

Moreover, much depend on your present verbal score. If its in the mid 20's, you need to go back to the strategy guide and review them again, or learn to apply them. If its in the mid 30's, you may need a different study plan to suit your need. As a general advice, don't use too many resources and specifically avoid Barron's/Acro/Cliff..and so on. Stick to reputable resources.

Regardless of what resources you use, your study plan should involve a great deal of review.

Study question 1
Review question 1

Study question 2
Review question 2

Study question 3
Review question 3

Now go back to questions 1-2-3 -- and without looking at the answer, go through the thought process you wish you had originally done - and think through these 3 questions. Do you arrive at the right answer?

Keep going these batches of 3 through a set of 30 questions.

This way you build up mental stamina in small batches of 3 - and increasingly to more as you increase the batch size from 3 to 5 to 10.

Eventually, you will have to sit through an entire exam without rest - so building small pieces of stamina will add up over time.

As for questions themselves, you can find them at our Practice Pill Platform:
