In other words, more than enough.

Here is what I would do and here is my logic to it.
(you may also read this post: http://www.gmatclub.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=77
and there is another one on OG, but I could not find it

In any case, I would start with Kaplan and jump on the strategy as much as I could. Take specific Practice Tests, not GMAT's. Then practice more with wither workbooks or specific practice exams.

In a few weeks I would start taking GMAT's

Try to see how the timing goes, how the gut feelings goes, and how the mistakes are going.

At the same time, I'd start working on the OG - concentrating on the verbal part. After a week (in week 3) I'd take a PowerPrep test and see how the things are doing.

Then, re-evaluate it and do some last day intense concentrated prep, take another PP test and possibly others.

Here is a link to Gmattutor's sugestions: http://www.gmattutor.com/gameplan.html

P.S. I would not bother with ARCO, Barrons, or such. PR is somewhat helpful, but I would concentrate on Kaplan and OG.

Here is my deal with Arco - I have not seen all of thier books, and indeed my bias against them is a hasty generalization, but it is quite logical to conclude if the company releases 2 stinky books, the rest of the 6 will be similar.

However, recently I have heard somebody complement thier Verbal part. here is a quote:

Quote:
My buddy wrote his GMAT in January and managed to score 710, using only ARCO, Kaplan GMAT (not even the workbooks), and a bit of PR. I have taken the same practise tests as he did (from ARCO); his average from those was about 670, so ARCO is slightly harder than the real thing. He did very well on verbal (thanks to ARCO he says) but struggled with math, saying that a lot of questions he'd never seen before (in terms of type) on the GMAT. According to him, ARCO is poor for math, Kaplan and PR are better.

This refers to GMAT-CAT 2002-03 edition.

The thing is that I am alone and dont' really have time to go and buy all these books and re-review them. So, if you find it interesting or good, please post your comment either here on the Board or in the BOOKS section here: top-gmat-prep-books-guides-reviews-comments-77703.html

Bogdan.
