I plan to give my GMAT within the next to weeks and have already gotten a 710 on GMAT prep.

What should be my strategy for the next 2 weeks? More mock tests, or just practice questions or should I take more time writing out practice AWAs.

Also, where can I practice more IR questions?

Hello axmanX........ All depends on your preparation .

1. Working on the weak point area is very important.
2. Practicing some AWAs will definitely help on the test day.

Hope this helps.

One or two more tests should be enough. Timed practice sessions would help as well. I don't suggest working on AWA unless you have a specific concern there. Finally, if you want more official IR questions, you could take a look at the IR Prep Tool.

All the best!

Hi axmanX,

First off, great work with your 710! Although I don’t know your score breakdown, you may consider a plan consisting of focused practice, so you can continue to seek out and fix any remaining weak areas. In other words, you have to go through GMAT quant and verbal carefully to find your exact weaknesses, fill gaps in your knowledge, and strengthen your skills. The overall process will be to learn all about how to answer question types with which you currently aren't very comfortable and do dozens of practice questions category by category, basically driving up your score point by point. When you do dozens of questions of the same type one after the other, you learn just what it takes to get questions of that type correct consistently. If you aren't getting close to 90 percent of questions of a certain type correct, go back and seek to better understand how that type of question works, and then do more questions of that type until you get to at least around 90 percent accuracy in your training. If you get 100 percent of some sets correct, even better.

For example, if you find that you are not strong in answering Number Properties questions, carefully review the conceptual underpinnings of how to answer Number Properties questions and practice by answering 50 or more questions just from Number Properties: LCM, GCF, units digit patterns, divisibility, remainders, etc. As you practice, do a thorough analysis of each question that you don't get right. If you got a remainder question wrong, ask yourself why you got it wrong. Did you make a careless mistake? Did you not properly apply the remainder formula? Was there a concept you did not understand in the question? By carefully analyzing your mistakes, you will be able to efficiently fix your weaknesses and in turn improve your GMAT quant skills. Number Properties is just one example; follow this process for all quant topics.

You can work on verbal in a similar manner. Let’s say you are reviewing Critical Reasoning. Be sure that you practice a large number of Critical Reasoning questions: strengthen and weaken the argument, resolve the paradox, find the conclusion, must be true, etc. As you go through the questions, do a thorough analysis of each question that you don't get correct. If you missed a weaken question, ask yourself why. Did you make a careless mistake? Did you not recognize what the question was asking? Did you skip over a key detail in an answer choice? Getting GMAT verbal questions right is a matter of what you know, what you see, and what you do. So, any time that you don't get one right, you can seek to identify what, if anything, you would have needed to know in order to get the right answer, what you had to see that you didn't see, and what you could have done differently to arrive at the correct answer.

So, work on accuracy and generally finding correct answers, work on specific weaker areas one by one to make them strong areas, and when you take a practice GMAT or the real thing, take all the time per question available to do your absolute best to get right answers consistently. The GMAT is essentially a game of seeing how many right answers you can get in the time allotted. Approach the test with that conception in mind, and focus intently on the question in front of you with one goal in mind: getting a CORRECT answer.

how to score a 700+ on the GMAT.

Please reach out with any further questions.

Good luck!

Review the GMATPrep test. You're looking for two things:

1. Are there any topics where you're missing relatively easy questions? These are areas that you could study for a week before your test, and improve significantly.

2. Is there anything that needs to change about your test-taking strategy? For instance, are you running out of time, or making careless mistakes, or could your scratch work be neater?

If you identify any 'low-hanging fruit' topics, go ahead and study those for a week - you can use the info here at GMATClub, or there are various other resources available (the MPrep Strategy Guides can be purchased as ebooks!).

Then, do one more practice test, a week out from your official test. Treat this as a 'dress rehearsal' - do it exactly how you plan to do the real thing.

For the last week before the test, do some timed problem sets, but don't try studying any new material. The few days before your test, primarily relax and review easy material that you already know. (This is a good time to do easy math drills to warm up your brain.)

Good luck!
