Hi!

I did a GMATprep test and scored 540(Q32, V31), this was without ever seeing a GMAT before and with zero studying.
This made me feel that i can reach a score of 660+ with a bit of preparation, I have 3-3½ months to go before the big day and I have already begun working with the manhattan series.

My plan is something like this: go through all the manhattan books, then start with the OG and see what I do wrong and then look through the manhattan book for those problems again to make sure i really learn how to do it right. Maybe I'll do some full practie-tests once a month to see if I'm making any progress.

What I would really appreciate is some input on how to get to the 660+, what can I do more than what I have mentioned?
My aim is to study 1-2hours a day during the week and more during the weekends, does this sound resonable?

Any input is valued, I'm reading everywhere to get some meat on my bones but this is a great way to get answers from "real people".

Thanks!'

-UPDATE-

Did my second mock-test today and scored a 690 (Q46, V38)! And I have still over 2 months to go and haven't studied any verbal yet.
I think my next step will be to go through my error-log and really understand those. Then go for a bit verbal in 2 weeks.
Feel free to ask anything, and all advice and pointers are greatly appreciated!

Hi. I think that will do it. You have a very good chance!
I started with 540 too.

Just look through these discussions: gmat-study-plan-for-gmat-novices-start-your-gmat-journey-80727.html
the-700-pledge-159174.html

Good luck!

Good luck!

I've just started with the OG after going through the math-books of manhattan. However I'm not sure what's the optimal way to go about it. Should I just do the questions one by one and then use my error log?
I read somewhere that it might be a god idea to stirr it up and take some questions that are harder, easier and intermediate each time, instead of just going from question 1 to 2 to 3 to 4 all the way to 200.

I know I'm quoting "bb", but input from anyone reading this is appreciated!

Congratulations on your progress so far!

One thing you might want to consider at this point is trying to simulate the "real" testing environment as much as possible during practice tests. You want to make sure your success in practice translates to test day, and familiarity with the testing environment/conditions will help.
