Hello Ruturaj,

You can find lot of tried and tested study plans in this and other forums. Check those out first.

Here are some tips from my side:

1. Are you analysing your CATs to see where you are going wrong. If you can identify a pattern you may also be able to work out a solution
2. Maintain an error log. This helps and ensure that you go through this before each test.
3. Maintain flashcards or just notes on questions you found very tricky or tough. Again go through these before every test
4. Be very steady with prep and time spent. Ensure that each day you spent atleast an hour on prep just to stay focussed

I apologise, if you are already doing this else please try this and see the results

Check my debrief for more details on my study plan. - http://gmatclub.com/forum/my-gmat-journey-111651.html

I would second these thoughts - make sure that with every test you understand what types of problems are giving you the most difficulty and make sure you learn that material more closely.

As already stated above, use and error log and identify your weaknesses s as well as strengths. With this knowledge, you can fine-tune your studies and improve your performance.

Also consider re-reading at least some of the guidebooks. I know, this is a pain. But it goes much more quickly the second time and this approach makes sure that you definitely know the concepts.

Hi,

I am no expert in this but I can tell you what worked for me. I was confident about Quant but just as it is with you not so good with Verbal. So I was doing additional prep for verbal using MGMAT SC, Power score CR and Aristotle RC. In between just to not lose focus on Quant I used to solve the OG and solve questions given in forums like gmatclub. Additionally in the last 1.5 months I was doing mock CATs from Kaplan and MGMAT.

Hope this helps.

For CR, use the Powerscore CR Bible. It's excellent and will help you to improve your performance. In terms of concepts, that's all you need. If you still have trouble, just keep reading the book over and over. For question practice, the OG material is good. And make sure to read all of the explanations - even for the ones you answer correctly. Yes, all of them.

You can also incorporate LSAT CR questions (officially called LR). Another good idea is to take a very active role in the CR forum on GMATClub. Answer questions there and defend your choices with detailed explanations.

Agree totally with bmillan01. To add Aristotle provides a compilation of GMAT like LSAT CRs. You can download it from their site for practice (Powescore CR does not have enough CR questions for practice, even though it is good for strategy).
