How many practice questions per day is a good standard? [#permalink]

I'm having trouble getting myself to sit still for more than 2-3 hours and doing more than 20-30 problems. With the test about 45 days away, I feel like I need to be doing more, I want to do more in fact, but I am hitting this barrier that I cant push through.

I'm not sure what others have done to get to 50 or 100 problems a day, with full review.

Has anyone faced problems of endurance during prep? If so what did you do to overcome those difficulties

It is not crucial to do 50-100 tests a day, as a matter of fact it is more important to concentrate on your weak areas rather than increasing the number of problems a day. well you have 45 days to the exam. how many CATs have you taken?

It is considerably significant to take CAT exams in order to put yourself in similar pressure like the exam date and find out in which parts you still need to work and practice.

So, I recommend to take CAT exams first and after that do problems based on your weak points and don`t forget there is no standard in this way, it differs from person to person. for example if your current score is near your goal, studying about 2-3 hours is enough,however if you are far-off you should devote as much time as possible to approach your intended score.

Good Luck,

Yes, gmat is a test of logic and endurance, if you want to buid stamina then you may take a mock exam once or twice a week, since you have 45 days left.

# of questions per day can vary based on your study plan and goals.

But yes, in general, you should be training/preparing yourself to do more and more questions per day. If you keep at it over the course of the month or two before the exam - you will build the necessary endurance for focusing strongly for the 3-4 hour exam.

You will need to train yourself to do a bunch of SC question. Then train yourself for a bunch of CR questions. Then RC, etc.

Then mix them all together.

Then test yourself on an actual practice exam..

The GMAT 1 month study plan we recommend builds endurance over time while letting you focus on your weakest section first without distractions from other sections.

It is extremely important that you sit for at least 3.5 hours at a stretch as that will be representative of what you will face on the final day. However, I will recommend mixing the topics to kill the boredom. For example, mix Cr with Problem solving and Sentence correction with Data sufficiency.

Also, I can share from my experiences of studying in a top 10 school: Be prepared to face the grind and studying for as many as 16 hours a day. And that too building excel models, reading 100 page long case studies etc. So, I am sure you will have to pull yourself out of the comfort zone. You can google for “Black November at Darden” and you will know what I am describing here.

We emphasize on building the stamina ahead of time in our classes here and I can clearly see that it is very important.

Moreover, I want to ask: You mentioned 20-30 questions in 2-3 hours? Is that correct? I can see that speed if definitely a problem there ( unless you are taking too long to analyze). I feel that you should be able to do 50 problems with thorough analysis in 3 hours( not sure if I am missing something in your post).
