Hi all,

I have my test in 4 weeks time, I started to prepare 1,5 weeks ago and I am aiming at 700 score.

I have good understanding of math, but it’s been a few years since I applied most of the GMAT stuff.
I am not a native English speaker but I have been living in the UK for a couple of years now.

I have had a good feeling for achieving my goals so far, but today I got this cold panic feeling for the first time, were I fear time is running away and I will do miserable on the test. So I decided to come here for some comfort and support.

I need to refocus on my study plan to get me back on track (I am not working so I can devote most of the day this preparation). There have been very good study plans suggested on the forum but most of them are aimed at 3-4 months.

Questions:
My strategy has been to touch base with all the fundamentals and get familiar with the test and topics before taking on the tests, Is that a mistake should I start focus on test earlier ?

Should I study Math and Verbal simultaneously? Or Should I maybe give 1 week to Verbal and 1 week to math?

Time , I have not been timing me so far, is it crucial to begin with that asap ?

This is what I have done for the last 1,5 week.
Math
OG 12th edition
Prep test – result OK
OG 12th About first 100 questions in Problem Solving
OG 12th About first 100 questions in Data Sufficiency
Number Properties MGMT , gone through half of that
Verbal,
4 first chapters In the GMAT Critical Reasoning bible
4 first chapters in SC from MGMAT

I also have the Kaplan GMAT Premier Book

All in all I don´t think I need a lot of more material, rather focus

I have about 4 good weeks to do brake this, all the help, pointers on/and/or a Good intensive study plan are highly appreciated.

I will come back and report on how it all played out for me,

Here I found this here in the forum, I can maybe adapt this to 4 weeks

1. First Section : Quantitative Section ( First Month): Real Basics for Number Systems , Inequalities, Equations, Percents, Geometery, Word problems, Permutation & Combination , Probability.
Maintain an error log from the practice questions when you cover each section. After 1 month - give 2 GMAT CLUB Quantitative tests. Get a broad understanding of where you stand, compare it with your error log and work on corresponding topics ( Take 2-3 weeks for it). Give 3 GMAT CLUB Quantitative tests after error log review.

2. Second Section : Verbal ( SC,CR,RC): Since I am an international I plan to give review the basics for grammar and then tackle SC. Review the guides for Verbal Sections available. Maintain an error log. After 1 month of time with Verbal, take 2 practice tests for Verbal Section. Analyze your practice tests, your mistakes, weakness and review those thing again for another 2-3 weeks.

3. Computer Adaptive tests : Practice as much as tests I can . review the results, error log . Tackle your weakness accordingly.

This type of concerte approach should help us reach where we want to in our GMAT SCORE .

Hi hafgola, welcome to gmat club.

I think your plan sounds good but missing an intial diagnostic test. You should take the first gmat prep test to analyze your weak areas. Dont wait till the end. Just take your first CAT.

Best of luck & keep us posted.

Hi I scored 460 on my first test yesterday, but actually I felt not so bad, I used up my time and had to skip 3-4 questions, and when I reviewed the Math section I noticed that many of the errors were relatively easy formulas that I did not know or basic mistakes, so now I know what to expect:
Verbal will be a bit more murky, I will devote next week to it and dig into grammar and SC.
I shall keep you posted, have a nice weekend
